|Synology showcases company’s first router|
|Tuesday, 17 March 2015 00:00|
Synology has demonstrated the company’s first router at Cebit, currently held in Hannover, Germany. The router with model number RT1900C offers 802.11AC Wifi and has a SD cardreader. The router should be equipped with Synology Router Manager, an operating system that closely resembles Synology’s NAS operating system, DSM.
According to the German website Golem, the model demonstrated at Cebit was a prototype running Disk Station Manager 5.2 beta. Chances are big that Synology Router Manager will eventually have similar capabilities as DSM 5.2 which is available for current NAS devices of the company. Because the router also features an USB port and a SD cardreader, the router could get NAS capabilities on the wired and wireless network.
Synology specifies throughputs of up to 1.9Gbit/s for dual band 802.11AC Wifi. Also beamforming, a technology developed to send wifi signals more efficient will be supported by the RT1900C.
Synology didn’t want to disclose an exact release date, but the router should become available later this year.
