The ASUS Blue Cave: A router with hidden antennas

+

Finally, a router that won't stick out like a sore thumb on our television console! We're talking about the new Blue Cave by ASUS.

Sure, it still looks quite tech-y, but if you're looking for a basic router without antennas, this is a safe bet.

The Blue Cave is so-called because it is designed as a hollowed out cube with a blue ring in the middle. To keep it looking clean, its four antennas are hidden. 

In terms of specifications, it is a dual-band AC2600-class router with maximum data transfer rates of 800Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 1,733Mbps on its 5GHz network.

It has the usual single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for wired connectivity.

It also has a USB 3.1 USB-A port that can be used to connect to external drives or printers for file and print-sharing, and the usual ASUS features like AiProtection and Advanced Parental Controls. 

Finally, Blue Cave also supports Amazon Alexa and IFTTT functions.

The ASUS Blue Cave will launch next week at the CEE Show 2018. Pricing will be revealed next week just before CEE 2018, so stay tuned.
