It enables more concurrent data transfer and thus higher, more stable performance - even when many devices are connected to the network. The ASUS Lyra Trio automatically recognizes which of the two modules offer the best connection.
Features of the ASUS Lyra Trio dual-band mesh home Wi-Fi network:
- Reliable dual-band mesh Wi-Fi
- Super fast 5 GHz connection
- Uninterrupted roaming between the Lyra modules
- Smart antennas for automatic connection adjustment
- Pyramidal antenna design minimizes interference
- Trend Micro security software Lifetime license
- Large network coverage of 167 - 334 sqm
Re-experience Wi-Fi with the ASUS Lyra Trio dual-band mesh network
With six high-quality pyramid-shaped antennas, the ASUS Lyra Trio Mesh WLAN achieves data transfer rates of 1300 Mbps in the 5 GHz frequency range and WLAN speeds of up to 450 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz frequency range. The Lyra modules communicate with each other also in the 5 GHz frequency range, so that in the entire mesh network data transfer rates of 1300 Mbit / s can be achieved.
Using MU-MIMO technology (multi-user), compatible devices can also be operated with their own dedicated maximum WLAN speed, which means that multiple devices can connect in parallel and the network is not slowed down. In the case of conventional single-user SU-MIMO technology, individual connected devices may wait in succession for the transmissions, which may cause delays.
With the easy-to-use ASUS Lyra app, installing and setting up the mesh network is a breeze. In just three steps, the user can use a smartphone, tablet or PC to set up Mesh WiFi in just 30 seconds. In addition to the setup, the ASUS App also allows you to manage traffic, diagnose connectivity issues, or perform firmware updates-all without turning on a PC.
The ASUS Lyra Trio Mesh System is now compatible with Amazon Alexa and can be integrated into smart home environments. For example, Alexa may be asked to prioritize video streaming packages to play high-definition video smoothly. Also on board is Trend Micro's AirProtection Classic network protection, which offers many useful protection features.
Mesh networks and mesh Wi-Fi
Depending on the frequency band used, the range of normal WLAN routers or access points is generally limited to a relatively small area and can easily be disturbed by metallic objects and walls, water and moisture, and electrical appliances such as microwaves. In larger apartments and houses can therefore rarely be covered the entire living space with wireless network.
With a wireless repeater, while you are able to increase the range and coverage of the signal, however, this leads to massive losses at the maximum possible data transfer rate. Depending on the mode of operation, no WLAN roaming is provided, so that it can lead to disconnections when going around in the apartment when the WLAN device (smartphone, tablet, etc.) has to reconnect.
With a mesh network, it is possible to achieve a very good wireless coverage with low loss of speed in the home or apartment. In addition, a mesh WLAN allows roaming between the individual base stations, so you can walk through your own four walls without disconnecting while surfing or streaming. The WLAN device recognizes which node of the mesh WLAN provides the optimal connection to the wireless home network.
