YOUR WI-FI HAS AN AUDIENCE

Who said you should hide your router in the closet? Bring it out in the open and enjoy faster and smoother signal in your whole home. A router for those who value both beauty and functionality. 


STRONG CONNECTION EVERYWHERE

Wi-Fi has to be fast, reliable, easy to manage, it must reach every room and every corner. That is exactly what Audience devices can deliver in grand style – even in the biggest houses! 

Audience is a tri-band (one 2.4 GHz & two 5 GHz) home access point with LTE support and meshing technology. If you need Wi-Fi in a huge building with all kinds of obstacles, simply add more Audience devices to your network – with a press of a button they will sync seamlessly and create a single Wi-Fi network to cover the whole premises.

In some cases a single Audience unit might be able to replace several other routers – in our tests it covered 1858 m² (20000 square feet) easily.

Wake up, Neo... MikroTik has you...

Remember the impressive bullet-time shots in The Matrix (1999) where Neo would dodge bullets in slow-motion? Those were done by a special camera rig arranged around the actor. The slow-motion effect was achieved by triggering the cameras at extremely close intervals and moving the viewpoint at the same time.


Recently we found a MikroTik switch in a similar setup – The Chronos Ring. It’s a modern bullet-time array of high speed cameras, synchronized for simultaneous exposures in extreme framerates by the Canadian company Kron Technologies.


If you also care for extreme speed, make sure to check out CRS326-24S+2Q+RM switch - our first product with 40 Gbps QSFP+ ports for remarkably fast and stable fiber connection.
