Synology’s First Router Earns CES 2016 Innovation Honoree Award
Thursday, 12 November 2015 00:00

Today the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) recognized Synology's first router – the RT1900ac – as a CES 2016 Innovation Award Honoree in the computer accessories category. Synology creates network attached storage (NAS) and private cloud solutions that transform the way people share, manage, and backup data – at home and at work.

"Routers have basically been the same for 20 years, but Synology is changing that," said company President Alex Wang. "We're extremely proud to be an Innovation Awards Honoree with our first entry into the market."

Synology Router RT1900ac Product Features

The new RT1900ac comes with fast performance speeds of up to 1.9Gbps and the most intuitive operating system in the industry – Synology Router Manager (SRM). Typical routers have confusing interfaces, but SRM resembles a desktop – making it extremely easy to use. Moreover, the router works as a private cloud and multimedia player that offers both computer and mobile access. Plug in a USB or SD card and get storage and printer functions – straight from the router! The RT1900ac also comes with free mobile and VPN apps for even more value.

The RT1900ac Gives Consumers Control Over Their Wireless Networks

With the RT1900ac, consumers have the ultimate control over their wireless networks and settings. Don't want your kids watching YouTube on their computers all day? Set limits so they only stream the site for two hours daily – without adding limits to your own PC. Using Application Layer Quality of Service (QoS), the Synology router lets users set bandwidth limits and website filters that control traffic – by device and individual applications.

Need to protect your children from adult content? With the RT1900ac, families can use parental controls that have a built-in DNS-based web-filter to block countless inappropriate websites, with a few simple clicks. Synology has created and will continue to update a DNS database that is comprised of thousands of inappropriate websites and grouped them by gambling, drugs, and adult content. Parents can use these preset filters to block entire groups of websites at one time, instead of manually entering them, individually. This makes the RT1900ac a huge time saver for households.

Wang added, "Some people might ask ‘Why is a NAS company getting into routers?' At Synology, we're always pushing the limits of network technology. Our products work as a private cloud, file server, multimedia sever, and file backup – all in one. Since the router connects the storage to the computer, we realized that with more control over the router, we could make even more advancements in NAS. The possibilities are endless."

Network attached storage uses wireless and wired Internet connections to access files from anywhere at any time. Synology leveraged this technology to create a wireless router with NAS capabilities.
