Isa sa mga tools na gamit na gamit natin this pandemic season ay ang router. Pero ano nga ba ito? Pano ba ito gumagana? Mapapabilis pa ba natin ito?
Ang router ay isang network hardware na nagcoconnect ng local home network tulad ng PC and other connected devices sa internet. Technically, ang tawag sa router na pambahay ay residential gateway.
Kadalasan ang isang router ay nakaconnect physically via cable sa isang modem via internet pero pwede rin itong nakaconnect via WAN port pero physically attached parin sa isang network cable. So kung ihahantulad natin, ang router ay parang isang gripo na nakaconnect sa tubig (internet) ito ang nagiging source ng mga device natin para makaconnect ito sa internet.
Sa tanong kung mapapabilis ba ang current existing router na meron tayo?
Technically, kung anong capacity ng router mo yun lang talaga ang mabibigay nyang speed para sayo. Pero may factor rin ang pag aayos ng location nito para magkaron ang area mo ng better connectivity coverage. I-factor mo rin ang dami ng connected devices sa router mo, kadalasan may limit lang ang mga router, alamin mo ang capacity nito at kung kailangan ay maglagay ng mas akmang router.
Tignan natin ang mga router na available sa Banggood!
1. HUAWEI WiFi AX3/ AX3 Pro Wi-Fi 6+ WiFi Router Mesh 3000Mbps Huawei Share HarmonyOS Wireless Router Mesh Networking – AX3 Pro Black
HUAWEI WiFi AX3 (Dual-core/ Quad-core) Router
- Usher in the Era of Wi-Fi 6.
Wi-Fi 5 is the standard used by most devices today, while Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is the new standard that’s gradually coming into smart devices in recent years. Wi-Fi 6 has made several improvements over Wi-Fi 5 to cope with the increasing demand for faster and more efficient Wi-Fi.
- Take a Step Further with HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6 Plus.
- Speed Up HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6-Enabled Phones with HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6 Plus.
AX3 and Wi-Fi 6-enabled HUAWEI phones are the perfect pair because both are equipped with HUAWEI’s self-developed Wi-Fi chipset, which support 160 MHz frequency bandwidth. This lays the foundation for Chipset Synergy, bringing out optimal speed and efficiency.
Signal Can Go Through One More Wall with HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6 Plus.
HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6-enabled phones are able to send 6dB stronger signals back to AX3 in stable, 2 MHz narrow bandwidth using Dynamic Narrow Bandwidth technology, which is based on Chipset Synergy. The wireless signals can penetrate solid objects like walls and floors easily. This means that the phone will have good reception of the Wi-Fi signal even when connecting from upstairs or somewhere far from the router.
- Fast Speed beyond Your Imagination.
You will be impressed with the blazing fast speed delivered by AX3. Thanks to 1024-QAM and 160 MHz frequency bandwidth, its theoretical speed can reach up to 3000 Mbps (574 Mbps on a 2.4 GHz band and 2402 Mbps on a 5 GHz band). The quad-core Gigahome CPU allows AX3 to best unleash its speed. At such speed, what used to be taken for granted, like buffering and lagging, will be a thing of the past. Enjoy smooth streaming and gaming like never before.
- Multiple Connections. Smooth Connections.
Unlike traditional routers, you can connect a multitude of devices to AX3 with greater efficiency. Supporting OFDMA multi-user technology, it is capable of sending data to multiple devices simultaneously (max. 4 devices on 2.4 GHz, max. 16 devices on 5 GHz). The highly powered quad-core Gigahome CPU also ensures smooth running of the processor. And, it is capable of connecting up to 128 devices overall on dual bands. No matter how crowded the space, it will serve different users and devices promptly.
- Larger Bandwidth with 160 MHz.
As AX3 supports 160 MHz, when connecting AX3 to devices supporting 160 MHz, like top-of-the-line HUAWEI Wi-Fi 5-enabled smart phones, tablets and laptops, the internet speed would increase 60% and more. This offers you an unprecedented, lag-free experience on mobile devices.
- Stronger Signal with Quad Power Amplifiers.
Easily handle Wi-Fi dead zones, boost weak connections, and enhance wireless coverage with 4 independent power amplifiers (2 amplifiers for 2.4 GHz and 2 amplifiers for 5 GHz). Applies to both Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 devices.
- Effortless Connection, Revolutionary Experience.
Huawei Share allows you to connect AX3 to your smart phone with a simple tap. Whether throwing a home party or celebrating festivals with friends and families, this router will remember the password for you and let the guests you trust connect to it easily.
- Protect Your Network with Huawei HomeSec™.
Enabled by TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) and Microkernel, AX3 offers a secure area inside its main processor, where both software and hardware are used to protect the data. It is also CC EAL5 certified, meaning it could operate safely in a commercial environment, offering great security assurance to your devices.
