Asus Blue Cave Router Launched at Computex 2017

ASUS introduces antenna-less Wi Fi router Blue Cave at Computex 2017						
						Tech															By:				CIOL Writers

We have seen various devices getting unveiled at the Computex 2017 event, which is now going on in Taipei.

Speaking to Mashable on the showfloor of the Computex technology show, an Asus spokesman explained that the antennas of the device are built into the roof, so you'll no longer have those ugly rods sticking out of your router.

The device is an "AC2600-class dual-band smart Wi-Fi router", with high performance and commercial-grade security, said Asus. Recently, Asus has announced a whole new dual band wireless router named with Asus Blue Cave.

While most other home Wi-Fi routers have started supporting mesh networking, this new Asus model is content to only offer a mobile app with granular user controls to pad out its "smart functionality" credentials. Generally, high-performance routers will have 2-4 antennas, but Asus has specially designed internal antennas in Blue Cave to make it stylish and elegant. Instead of antennas, it sports a central aperture which is a hole in the middle of the Blue Cave to direct the signals. It has the antennas on the upper part of the router and many have praised this change.




The design, Engadget explains, uses the hole to separate the antennas from the motherboard. There is also a parental controls feature, for monitoring Internet and app usage, and app and IFTT support.

The company has added "Asus AiProctection", a free-for-life security solution powered by Trend Micro and SmartHome Network. The new router is packed with a number of advanced features for the current generation. The AiProtection is backed by a lifetime subscription of TrendMicro's Smart Home Network that safeguards your smart and IoT devices against hackers.

The price? The router will cost you about $180, but it is not clear when will it launch.
