ASUS Miracast Dongle

Instantly stream entertainment contents

~ Sit back and stream your favorite movies, videos and photos on a big screen TV.

~ Play tablet or mobile games on your TV.

~ Easy set-up and instant playback.







No worries about compatibility issues, the ASUS Miracast Dongle is Wi-Fi Certified to work with any Wi-Fi Certified routers.







SGI ~ Short Guard Interval, I like

SGI - Short Guard Interval

In the first several “How Stuff Works” posts, I have been talking about technical improvements to 802.11n such as MIMO antennas, Spatial Multiplexing, and Channel Bonding. In this post, I want to talk about another such technical improvement, Short Guard Interval.

The guard interval is the space between symbols (characters) being transmitted. This is often confused with the space between packets, which is the interframe space (IFS). The guard interval is there to eliminate intersymbol interference, which is referred to as ISI. ISI happens when echos or reflections from one symbol interfere with another. Adding time between symbol transmission allows these echos and reflections to settle in before the next symbol is transmitted. In normal 802.11 operation, the guard interval is 800 ns.

Specifications as follows

ASUS ~ The Networking Innovator ~

Wave 2 802.11AC MU-MIMO Router announced


ASUS' AC2300 router has been outed at CES 2014.



A chat with advanced Wi-Fi chipmaker Quantenna at the CES Unveiled press event revealed the first company that will field a router based on its QSR1000 device that was named a CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award Honoree.

The ASUS RT-AC87U will be a full 4X4 802.11ac router supporting maximum link rates of 1.7 Gbps in 5 GHz and 600 Mbps in 2.4 GHz. Of course, you'll need matching 4x4 clients, most likely in the form of a bridge or a second RT-AC87U to get at these rates.

For devices that don't have the price points or space for four transmit / receive chains and antennas to match, the Quantenna device also supports Multi User MIMO (MU-MIMO). Again, you'll need clients that know how to speak MU-MIMO to get the benefit, which will be the ability of the router to split its 1700 Mbps bandwidth into two 867 Mbps streams for MU-MIMO devices.

The buzzword you'll be hearing more about that connotes these features is "Wave 2" AC. I'll come back to this in a few days after the initial CES frenzy dies down.

In the meantime, we might hear ASUS itself reveal the RT-AC87U at its CES keynote at noon (PT) tomorrow.

On the other hand, ASUS DSL-AC68U has been announced as well.

Some more sneak peeps about the newest upcoming ASUS RT-AC87U world first 4X4 MU-MIMO Router

Do note the design and outlook isn't final and it's subject to changes without any prior notices.

Some interesting insights on the ASUS RT-AC87U

Specifications are subject to changes

According Quantenna Asus will bring the 4-stream router RT-AC87U on the market during the year. The device works on the Gigabit WLAN standard IEEE 802.11ac chipset and uses Quantennas QSR1000 , by up to four antennae, four spatial streams to be processed. So it increases the gross data rate in the 5-GHz band from the usual today with 3 streams 1300 to 1700 Mbit / s, which of course presupposes compatible 4-stream clients. Alternatively, the router may have two clients, each with 867 Mbit / s and different data simultaneously use (multi-user MIMO). This also requires clients to support MU-MIMO.

Although Quantenna indicates the QSR1000 that the device supports 11ac Wave 2. However, there seems to be missing with the 160 MHz wide radio channels is an essential feature of Wave 2, because the manufacturer calls a top speed of just 1700 instead of 3500 Mbit / s However, there is little need for it: Even with 3-stream MIMO c't editorial team was able to achieve short-term payload rates 700-770 Mbit / s in 11ac tests. With four streams then just over 1000 Mbit / s would be possible, which in the usual routers Gigabit Ethernet interface saturates. 11ac with 160 MHz channels would therefore bundling of two GE ports using link aggregation condition or a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port.

It will be exciting if the Asus RT-AC87U finally the 5-GHz technology Dynamic Frequency Selection implemented. So far, it remained at previous products such as RT-AC66U or RT-AC68U with promises, which is disadvantageous for the users: Without DFS may 5GHz bases in this country only use the radio channels 36 to 48, which inevitably leads to mutual interference with neighbors who also 11ac Wi-Fi. Because if two neighboring WLANs operate on the same radio channel, decreases for both the Nutzdurchsatz because they have to share the shared medium in time. However, with respect to DFS, other WLAN manufacturers need to catch up: In the last router test could be operated only 5 of 13 devices to the high 5-GHz channels.

Asus named after publication of the report more details about the RT-AC87U: The router works with two processors, a BCM4709 (ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core 1 GHz) and the unspecified CPU core in QSR1000. As with the RT-AC68U (see test in c't issue 23/13) there is a USB 3.0 and a USB 2.0 port. DFS support needs to be delivered shortly after the release via firmware update. Asus wants to bring the RT AC87U in the third quarter of 2014 for 210 euros on the market.
