Telecom Lead India: ASUS has launched ASUS DSL-N55U
Gigabit ADSL modem. With dual 2.4GHz/5GHz through three antennas, it supports
up to 600Mbps in bandwidth, running a maximum 300,000 concurrent data sessions.
The price of the modem is Rs 9,500.
ASUS said two USB ports enable file, media, printer, and
DLNA server usage, while EZ UI setup allows users to configure home networks
easily in minutes.
Equipped with two CPUs, the DSL-N55U carries out both
modem and router duties in wired and wireless modes. It saves users the space,
energy requirements, and cost of maintaining a separate ADSL modem and router.
The tri-antenna DSL-N55U works in dual-band 2.4GHz and
5GHz frequencies, giving users access to 300Mbps per band, or a total of
600Mbps in bandwidth. The 2.4GHz band can be used for normal online tasks such
as web browsing, email, and social networking, while the less congested 5GHz
band remains free for online multiplayer gaming and HD multimedia streaming.
The three antennas combine with ASUS Ai Radar signal
enhancement technology, detecting local conditions and the positions of
connected devices to ensure the best possible transmission quality.
The DSL-N55U takes out the complexity from modem and
router setup. ASUS plans to incorporate its ASUSWRT firmware into the DSL-N55U
via a live upgrade in April, offering access to multiple SSIDs, IPv6, 3G
sharing, and the Download Master web-based interface. ASUSWRT was previously
incorporated into the ASUS RT-N66U.
With the standardized accessibility of USB, the DSL-N55U
can transform into a file, media, or printer server for even greater utility
and multi-role value. It comes DLNA-compatible for integration with a variety
of devices, from game consoles to set top boxes. Powered USB also serves to
recharge portable devices such as smartphones and tablets.
