As well as unveiling an array of notebooks and all-in-one PCs, ASUS also unveiled a smart Wi-Fi router – the all-new ASUS Blue Cave is an elegantly designed AC2600-class dual-band smart Wi-Fi router that combines superb performance, commercial-grade security and family friendly features with stylish good looks.
Featuring Intel technology, including the latest Intel Wi-Fi chipset, Blue Cave delivers ultrafast AC2600-class concurrent dual-band Wi-Fi speeds throughout the home, ensuring smooth 4K UHD video streaming, lag-free gaming and fast file downloads — with the ability to support more client devices simultaneously than most routers available today, and more than enough capacity to handle the growing number of connected devices found in busy households.The use of powerful, specially designed internal antennas in Blue Cave is the key to its stylish and elegant antenna-less design, which features a unique and attractive central aperture that is bathed in gentle blue light. Blue Cave incorporates ASUS AiProtection, the first commercial-grade security for home networks. ASUS AiProtection is a free-for-life security solution powered by Trend Micro Smart Home Network, which protects every connected smart device on the network, including IoT devices.
Blue Cave offers several features that are accessible from a mobile device, including Family Overview for easy monitoring and control of each family member’s internet and app usage. Users can also enjoy PC-free network control with a smartphone or tablet as their network control center for monitoring network activity, security reports and more. IFTTT support allows users to integrate Blue Cave with other IFTTT-enabled digital devices and services to create smart automated tasks.
The ASUS Blue Cave should cost you around $180 when it goes on sale. The availability of the ASUS Blue Cave is still unclear at this point. Make sure you stick around for further updates.
