Synology, the manufacturer of network attached storage (NAS) and private cloud solutions, will announce its first router - the RT1900ac - at CES 2016.
The new RT1900ac comes with fast performance speeds of up to 1.9Gbps and the Synology Router Manager (SRM) operating system. SRM resembles a desktop – making it easy to use. Moreover, the router works as a private cloud and multimedia player that offers both computer and mobile access. It offers storage and printer functionalities.
The RT1900ac also comes with free mobile and VPN apps. 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.
With the RT1900ac, families can use parental controls that have a built-in DNS-based web-filter to block inappropriate websites, with a few simple clicks. Synology has created 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.
The RT1900ac will be available in the United States in the first quarter of 2016 for $149.99.
