ASUS Republic of Gamers Unveils ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro Gaming Router with U-NII 4 Support

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro, a stylish gaming router ready to deliver ultra-fast WiFi 6 and 10 Gbps Ethernet to any type of gamer.

The GT-AX11000 Pro is designed from the ground up to cut through increasingly crowded wireless airwaves and maintain low-latency gaming experiences, insanely fast download speeds, and massive signal coverage. This coverage is expanded by leveraging ASUS RangeBoost Plus, and ASUS AiMesh compatibility allows users to combine AiMesh routers to create a whole-home mesh Wi-Fi network — or instantly expand an existing one. extend – to eliminate any dead spots. The second 5 GHz band includes new Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure 4 (U‑NII 4) support, enabling an additional high-speed 160 MHz channel for compatible client devices. The GT-AX11000 Pro is easy to manage via the free ASUS Router mobile app, which gives users at all levels intuitive access to the router’s arsenal of powerful features. There is also an easy-to-use web-based interface that additionally allows configuration of the new 10 Gbps LAN/WAN port.

Huge WiFi capacity
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro is a powerful 4x4x4 tri-band WiFi 6 router that delivers combined speeds of up to 11000 Mbps. The two 5GHz bands and one 2.4GHz band are fully backwards compatible with older Wi-Fi devices, while newer ones can take advantage of advanced technology to improve connection speeds and signal strength. For example, the second 5GHz band offers additional U-NII 4 spectrum at 5.9GHz, unlocking access to less congested ether and more consistent downloading and streaming.

The 5.9GHz spectrum has remained unused until now, so users with U-NII 4-aware devices can avoid signal interference from nearby Wi-Fi networks that have to compete with each other on the lower frequencies. And previously, users could only access two 160MHz channels in the 5GHz band. With the GT-AX11000 Pro, they have access to a third, high-performance 160MHz channel for increased network capacity, or for the backhaul capacity of their AiMesh network.

With a combination of full 160MHz channels, OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, the GT-AX11000 Pro provides up to 4x more network capacity and efficiency in crowded environments and densely populated networks. Through this advanced technology, users can provide fast access to a staggering number of devices, or they can deliver ultra-fast speeds to any given connection.

High-tech options for wired users
For those who prefer an Ethernet connection, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro features not one but two WAN ports. They are suitable for 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps, and the 10 Gbps port can be easily switched to LAN operation to increase transfer speeds within the network. To keep up with that echelon of performance, two of the 1 Gbps ports feature link aggregation, allowing users to combine separate Ethernet connections into an even faster one.

Add load balancing to this mix and users are fully able to take advantage of a veritable ocean of network bandwidth, not to mention the ultra-fast internet services that are becoming more and more available.

ROG routers are great for gamers
For both wireless and wireless setups, ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro is made for all kinds of gamers, whether they play on PCs, mobile devices or game consoles. ASUS-exclusive three-level game acceleration stabilizes connections to prevent jitter, reduce lag, lower ping, and increase speed for great gaming experiences. Game traffic is optimized on every network node, from the user to a game server on the other side of the world. Users can also show off their style with a ROG logo atop the router with customizable Aura RGB lighting and effects designed with the letters ‘ROG’ embedded in a sleek matte surface.

Access and security, at home or on the go
All ROG routers can be fully configured in a web browser or the ASUS Router app for mobile devices. This free app allows users to check the status of the network even when they are away from home, create access for guests, optimize bandwidth for gaming and other functions, view potential security vulnerabilities and monitor their children’s online activities.

When users are not on their ASUS home network, they can also use the free Instant Guard mobile app. This allows them to route their internet connection through the network in just a few taps through an encrypted VPN tunnel. This can make a public Wi-Fi connection much safer to use, in any region of the world.

Last but not least, ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro features ASUS AiProtection Pro powered by Trend Micro, which offers exclusive commercial security through a collection of privacy monitoring, real-time protection against network intrusion, and in-depth parental controls – with no subscription fees.
