Smart networking for your home and business
TAIPEI, TAIWAN — December 21st, 2016 — Synology® Inc. today launched the RT2600ac, a high-speed, security-focused router designed to accommodate the modern home and office. Packed with powerful packages inside an intuitive UI, the RT2600ac delivers robust performance with stable, uninterrupted wired and wireless connections for multiple users.
To maximize user experience and network performance, the RT2600ac is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, and comes equipped with the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 certified radios featuring MU-MIMO support, ensuring more devices can connect at higher speeds. Together with Smart Connect, RT2600ac can intelligently optimize connection quality and balance devices on 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 routers 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 high bandwidth media."
RT2600ac is powered by the Synology Router Manager (SRM) operating system, which offers professional-level networking tools at a consumer-friendly price point. Application Layer QoS (Quality of Service) makes it possible to monitor and control bandwidth consumption according to not only devices, but also individual applications. Even with advanced traffic control and application detection enabled, the hardware acceleration engine serves to maintain high performance and throughput for all connected devices. The RT2600ac is Wi-Fi and DLNA Certified.
With VPN Plus Server add-on package, RT2600ac can deliver client-free WebVPN in addition to minimal-setup, high performance Synology SSL VPN solutions.
