Synology Inc. launched its first mesh router, the MR2200ac. Supporting Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA3), the mesh router is intended for every homeowner to bring fast, uninterrupted Wi-Fi to the perimeter and is designed to understand, control, and secure their entire network. Being a high-performance wireless router with a modular design, its coverage can be easily expanded with additional units to create a mesh network for connected homes of all sizes.
New features include Qualcomm IPQ4019 quad-core system-on-chip, Intelligent Mesh Technology for eliminating dead zones and delivering your broadband Internet speeds to the farthest corners of the house, comprehensive support for standards including 802.11 k, v, and r; a single Wi-Fi dashboard for monitoring the status of all Wi-Fi points and wireless devices, and Safe Access package that brings together best-in-class parental controls and automatic security at the network level. It is also accessible through the Synology Router Manager (SRM), an award-winning operating system that has made many business-grade features accessible to consumers with an intuitive user interface.
“When we looked at this, we realized that it wasn’t just a matter of keeping devices connected,” said Kuei-Huan Chen, senior manager of Synology. “It’s also a matter of understanding what’s happening in our network in order to protect our devices – and family – from external exploits. That’s what we built the MR2200ac to do. Through our work with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., MR2200ac supports the latest Wi-Fi and security technologies to make a network smarter and safer.”
“Qualcomm Technologies is committed to providing high-quality Wi-Fi with its innovative Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform, which brings high security and advanced in-home connectivity to retail customers all over the world.” said Gopi Sirineni, vice president for Product Management of Qualcomm Technologies Inc. “Our ongoing work with Synology is designed to ensure that more consumers get to enjoy a virtually uninterrupted, fast and secure Wi-Fi experience for connected homes of all sizes.”
