High Power Wifi technology
You can see that the wifi technology applied to this product is the latest wifi technology (802.11ac) delivering the speeds of up to 867Mbps (5GHz band) and up to 300Mbps (2.4GHz band) like other wireless ac1200 routers such as Netgear R6100 and Linksys EA6300 routers. But what makes this RTA15 is different is the power amplifier technology engineered to the product i.e. ten times.
Have a look at the following diagram how Amped engineered the router with power amplifiers. It amplifies 2.4GHz band with two power amplifiers, while for the 5GHz band it applies two stages of two power amplifiers. Normally other routers apply amplifiers in one stage directly to signal band, but this is different in two stages. This is to ensure that your wifi network can cover all corners of your large homes including the backyard.
Signal recipient is typically weak and noisy, but Amped amplifies the signal with four high power amplifiers to assure the low noise can be addressed for clear and solid signal. In additions of high gain three external antennas, RTA15 is ideal for large house delivering fast internet browsing and high performance multimedia application experiences.
Wondering if you can create multiple network segregation with this router? sure you can create up to 8 additional guest networks for guests with different security settings, different bandwidth and data rate settings for each of the SSID. This is a great Guest network feature you can create for the sake of the multiple networks with different characteristic. Not many wireless ac routers allow you to create multiple SSIDs, but you can mention Asus AC68 series that allows you create up to three SSIDs each band (6 SSIDs).
