Smart WAN

SRM’s Smart WAN capability on the RT2600ac supports 2Gbps Dual WAN combined bandwidth when multiple connections are established1. If one of the connections goes offline due to ISP or cable problems, traffic can failover to the other interface. Load balancing can be used in addition to failover, spreading traffic across both interfaces. Policy route allows traffic routing based on destination or source address.

Smart Connect

Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands? With Synology’s Smart Connect, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically, letting users experience simplified management without worry about range or speed issues.

Content filtering & monitoring

Application Layer QoS and Traffic Report
Application Layer or Layer 7, Quality of Service control shows the bandwidth consumed by individual applications and devices. Restrict the amount of bandwidth for specific applications, without affecting the rest, and generate traffic usage reports sorted by application and device.

Intelligent Web Filtering and Parental controls
Instead of traditional URL-based web filtering, SRM does so during DNS lookup. Easily block out thousands of sites with built-in Google SafeSearch integration and a constantly updated database of customizable website categories.

Stay protected

In addition to standard security tools like denial-of-service protection and firewall management, SRM delivers innovative tools and features to help protect your network from outside attacks.

Intrusion Prevention
Intrusion Detection System analyzes network traffic and logs all intrusion attempts, allowing for fine-tuning of your firewall rules with minimal performance impact. Intrusion Prevention System additionally blocks suspicious traffic based on customizable rules.

Security Advisor & QualysGuard
