Synology debuts the RT1900ac Wi-Fi router

Synology Inc. has announced a new 802.11ac Wi-Fi router that brings high-end networking technologies to the consumer market segment, all at an affordable price. The new router is called RT1900ac and is designed for use in homes and offices.

“Router is a critical element for any modern network, and yet it remains often complicated to use. By leveraging our expertise in network-attached storage and maximizing user experience, Synology aims at providing a pleasant, efficient and advanced solution to enthusiastic and professional users,” said Derren Lu, CEO of Synology Inc.

The new Synology RT1900ac Wi-Fi router runs the Synology Router Manager (SRM) operating system, which offers professional-level networking tools at a consumer-friendly price point. The router also offers Application Layer QoS (Quality of Service), which makes it possible to monitor and control bandwidth consumption according to not only devices, but also individual applications. In addition the router is equipped with a DNS-based web filter, parental controls and a vast database with inappropriate web sites that allow parents or business owners to block thousands of sites and create network access schedules for connected devices with a few simple clicks.

The Synology RT1900ac Wi-Fi router comes with three adjustable long-range antennas and the latest and fastest 802.11ac wireless technology, which allows for combined transfer speeds of up to 1900 Mbps. The device also has a dual-core processor at 1 GHz for smooth performance all around. The implemented USB 3.0 port and SD (SDXC) slot allow users to attach external storage devices and share digital content, which turns the Synology RT1900ac Wi-Fi router into a NAS system. The Synology Package Center, on the other hand, lets users download packages and turns the RT1900ac into a VPN server, RADIUS authentication server, DNS server, 24/7 download hub, and Media Server for both homes and offices.

The new Synology RT1900ac Wi-Fi router is available now in various countries around the world. No word on pricing.
