6 Features of the Amped RTA15 Wireless AC Router
Amplified Wireless AC
The RTA15 uses 802.11ac wireless that is given an extra boost with 2-Stage amplifiers. This projects the Wireless AC signal even further which increases range, coverage and data rates at greater distances. This helps with HD streaming, especially within a larger home. Combined data rates accumulate to 1.2Gigabits per second when combining both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
Adjustable High Gain Antennas
The Amped RTA15 contains three adjustable antennas, which contain 10 amplifiers. The high-powered antennas help to broadcast wireless signals throughout your home – even through walls and other obstructions.
With the flexibility of being able to manually adjust the antennas in any desired direction, you can help to eliminate dead spots in your home whilst at the same time increasing coverage and throughput elsewhere in your domain.
Make sure your router is not the bottleneck in the network. With a 660MHz CPU, the Amped RTA15 700mW router is well equipped to take on heavy data transfers from multiple users at the same time without buckling under pressure. Gaming and movie streaming will run smoother as a result.
On top of your primary network, a further 8 wireless networks can be created that will give access to the Internet. Your internal private network and devices will be inaccessible and protected by the Amped RTA15.
Plug a USB drive into the RTA15 so that you can share files around the home, or even remotely using FTP over the Internet.
Parental Control & Security
With parental control, you have full control over your network. Restrict certain users to certain websites at any times of your choosing.
With advanced security features, you can control how much wireless output is omitted by adjusting power. The Amped RTA15 also features WPS Wi-Fi Protected Setup, making wireless authentication as simple as possible, while also remaining secure.
Other Features Of The RTA15
Gigabit Ethernet Ports
It’s not just the wireless that is Gigabit. There are four LAN Ethernet ports, each capable of 1Gbps for use with internal LAN devices, computers etc.
There is also one Gbps Ethernet WAN port, which is used to plug into a modem.
5GHz & 2.4GHz
Simultaneous Dual Band is a feature that allows for multiple devices to connect to two wireless frequency bands at the same time. Very useful for segregating users to use different networks depending on what applications they use. Having dual band also means that older legacy devices can connect to your network and sit alongside your newer ones.
Future Proof with IPv6
No need to worry about replacing the RTA15 should your ISP decide to change it’s addressing scheme. With IPv6 functionality built in, your Amped router will be ready for the switchover to the next generation on Internet addressing.
