Synology launched the new Synology Router RT2600ac, a high speed, security focused router designed to accommodate the modern home and office. The new RT2600ac router delivers a solid wireless performance with its 4 × 4 MU-MIMMO support and roughly 2600Mbps total wireless bandwidth.
The new router designed for multiple devices to connect at full ac speeds. The RT2600ac can intelligently optimize connection quality between both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios for maximum wireless speed and range. Dual WAN with 2.0 Gbps combined bandwidth allows users to take advantage of two high speed fiber internet connections for load balancing plus failover.
“With a growing demand for faster and smarter Wi-Fi,” says Product Manager Michael R Wang, “consumers are looking for high performance that can reliably service an increasing number of devices. With SRM and its collection of packages available, users can adapt their RT2600ac into a versatile VPN, RADIUS, and file server capable of streaming media.”
On the inside, it features a 1.7GHz dual-core CPU and externally it has the more or less default four LAN ports and one WAN port. The four antennas are mounted all around with two on the rear and one on each side. On the top of the network ports, it also features two USB 3.0 ports where one of them is located on the rear next to WAN port.
The router packed with powerful package inside an intuitive UI, it delivers robust performance with stable, uninterrupted wired and wireless connections for multiple users. RT2600ac is powered by the Synology Router Manager (SRM) operating system, which offers professional level networking tools at a consumer-friendly price point.
The RT2600ac also features an SD card slot for direct memory card access. This is another feature that sets the Synology routers apart from the mass, besides just being awesome.
The RT2600ac is currently available in all APAC regions with additional availability in early January 2017.
