Routers for MTS


Criterias of choice

A router or router connects a local network or client devices (smartphone, laptop, computer, tablet) to the Internet via a twisted pair cable and a wireless interface using the Wi-Fi standard. The quality of the connection, especially with broadband access, largely depends on the performance and technical characteristics of the router.

When choosing a router for MTS, pay attention to the following parameters:

  • Wi-Fi standard – 802.11ac, 11n, 802.11g – for the user, it primarily determines the maximum connection bandwidth and support for the 5 GHz frequency range or its absence;
  • the presence of the required number of LAN interfaces (with a margin of 1-2 pieces) for wired connection of devices: TV, set-top box, computer;
  • maximum number of clients;
  • USB port for connecting a wireless modem, which provides Internet access, flash drives, for example, for flashing a device, printer;
  • support for the 5 GHz frequency range (included in the standard) – unlike the loaded 2.4 GHz signal, it is freer, supports higher speeds (up to 11 GB / s depending on the specification), but old devices are not compatible with it, the obstacles jam more signal;
  • type of antenna – open will allow you to cover a large area with a signal, for an apartment or a private house with a small yard, a closed antenna is enough;
  • support for the wireless network standard – 3G / 4G;
  • hardware platform – a weak microprocessor will not cope with the distribution of broadband Internet to a large number of devices, it will quickly warm up.

The processor should be selected based on the planned load, but not less than 450-600 MHz, the amount of memory is 256 MB.
