Robust connectivity with Beamforming
Traditional routers broadcast wireless signals in all directions, regardless of the position of your laptop or smartphone. With smart Beamforming technology, Synology Router RT1900ac focuses wireless signals toward up to six supported devices, reducing latency, economizing power consumption, and improving wireless range.
Powerful connectivity management
For advanced home users and company admins, Synology Router Manager 1.1 delivers tools to manage connectivity so your network runs smoothly and just the way you want.
For those who need uninterrupted network connectivity, Smart WAN allows Synology Router RT1900ac to connect to the Internet via two network interfaces. If one of the connections goes offline due to ISP problems or other issues, traffic can failover to the other interface. Additionally, load balancing can spread traffic across both interfaces according to customizable settings, allowing you to route traffic through a specific interface according to the destination or source address.
Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands? With Synology's Smart Connect wireless technology, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically according to preset or customizable criteria, letting users experience the best Wi-Fi without worrying about technical details.
Application Layer QoS
Powered by a deep packet inspection engine, Application Layer QoS (Quality of Service) lets you see how much bandwidth is consumed by individual applications and devices. If someone is hogging too much bandwidth on non-essential applications — like YouTube or Spotify — you can restrict the amount of bandwidth the device can use for the specific application, without affecting the bandwidth available for other applications.
To better manage and assess bandwidth requirements, you can generate easy to understand reports detailing the traffic usage of applications and devices over a specific period of time. Network administrators can use these reports to better understand traffic, check if certain devices or applications are consuming too much bandwidth, and investigate security concerns.
For parents or business owners, it's easy to set a schedule to control when children or employees are allowed to access the Internet. In addition, with built-in Google SafeSearch integration and a vast database of inappropriate websites, you can customize what kinds of content are permitted and effectively block thousands of sites with a few simple clicks. Having multiple customizable profiles allows for blocking different types of content for specific family members or employees.
Intelligent web filtering
Whereas traditional routers implement URL-based web filtering to block or allow specific content in the network, Synology Router Manager includes a more intelligent web filtering which checks if content is blocked or allowed during the DNS lookup stage of communication, making it harder to sneak through and see unauthorized content, while also reducing system resource consumption.
Intrusion Prevention Beta
The Intrusion Prevention add-on package brings intrusion detection system (IDS) and intrusion prevention system (IPS) features to actively protect your network and devices from malicious parties. IDS analyzes traffic and detects intrusion within network, thus enhancing security rules to avoid future security problems. IPS inspects network packets in order to proactively prevent suspicious traffic and requests from entering your network.
This handy diagnostics tool helps you optimize and understand security settings for your specific environment. By performing a comprehensive analysis of system settings, password strength, and network preferences, Security Advisor minimizes security holes and protects Synology Router RT1900ac — and your whole network.
QualysGuard Security Scan
Synology strives to guarantee a secure software experience for all users. With the help of QualysGuard, a trusted and market-leading vulnerability scanner, Synology can conduct thorough system scans and implement remediation. See security scan results
Take your files everywhere
By connecting an external storage device, Synology Router RT1900ac can become a private cloud server, allowing you to access files from anywhere, share photos with family and friends, or backup data from your Windows or Mac computers.
Works with Time Machine
With support for Apple's Time Machine backup, Mac users can connect an external storage device to Synology Router RT1900ac and start backing up files from one or more Mac computers. Since the backup tasks are handled over the network, you skip the hassle of plugging in an external hard drive every time you want to back up data.
Dual guest Wi-Fi
Anywhere access with QuickConnect
You can create dual guest wireless networks, allowing temporary visitors to connect to the Internet, while restricting them from accessing local resources, such as servers with sensitive data and files. This is useful for businesses or other institutions who want to provide a wireless connectivity for visitors, but keep them from accessing sensitive resources, such as the office file server.
Synology's free QuickConnect service is the simplest way to access your Synology Router RT1900ac, even when you're away from home or the office. Just register a unique and customizable QuickConnect ID, and you’ll to be able to log in to Synology Router Manager, access connected storage devices, and do much more from anywhere with an Internet connection.
With Network Tools, you can easily test, analyze, and troubleshoot network connections using the Ping and Traceroute tools. In addition, you can remotely wake up devices connected to Synology Router RT1900ac using the Wake on LAN panel.
The USB port allows for sharing a printer across your wireless network. Simply plug it in and everyone connected to the network can take advantage of a centralized network printer — without having to worry about plugging in more wires.
