Synology is a company we know for their network-attached storage solutions. Over the years they have really excelled at making setting up and managing your network-attached storage extremely easy. This is why they are the go-to for consumers as well as businesses when it comes to NAS solutions. Synology wanted to bring the ease of use they are known for to another section of the networking space, routers. We all know how annoying setting up and configuring a router can be, well Synology wants to make it simple, not only to set up, but to manage as well. Today we are taking a look at their first router, the RT1900ac. This router features the Broadcom BCM58622 which has a 1.0 GHz processor and 256MB of DDR3 memory. The dual-band router is capable of 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 1300 Mbps on the 5.0 GHz band. Besides that you have 4 LAN ports, three omni-directional MIMO antennas, a USB 3.0 port for storage or a printer, SD card support, and Synology’s Router Manager (SRM) operating system, which will make setting the router up and managing it a breeze. Let’s take a look!
