Thanks to Asus, we’ll be taking a quick look at the Blue Cave AC2600 Dual Band WiFi Router. This router supports speeds of up to 2600 Mbps (concurrent wifi), MU-MIMO technology, and comes with 4 x Gigabit LAN ports, as well as a dual core Intel CPU.
Most home routers have a pretty angular design with at least 2-4 antennas protruding out. They’re not very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. What strikes me about the Asus Blue Cave router is the looks. Its design is sleek and very modern, it’s something you can easy put in your living room, without having it stick out like a sore thumb. It looks similar to a Dyson product, except no air is blown through the hole!
One of the main selling points of this router is that it comes with Advanced Parental Controls, Commercial-Grade Home Network Security, easy to use and intuitive PC interface, as well as full controls using the Asus Router app.
Here’s a little blurb taken from Asus’s website.
The Meaning of Asus
“ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolises wisdom and knowledge. ASUS embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates.
Taiwan’s Information Technology industry has grown enormously over the last few decades and the country is now a dominant force in the global market. ASUS has long been at the forefront of this growth and while the company started life as a humble motherboard manufacturer with just a handful of employees, it is now the leading technology company in Taiwan with over 12,500 employees worldwide. ASUS makes products in almost every area of Information Technology too, including PC components, peripherals, notebooks, tablets, servers and smartphones.”
It will be interesting to see who this router will perform against others we’ve tested including the Asus BRT-828 (AC2600) and the Linksys WRT 1200. We’re expecting the Asus Blue Cave AC2600 to perform similarly to the Asus BRT-828 (AC2600), with only the difference being the aesthetics.
