Now broadband has been popular for a long time. Many families have used 300m or even 500m broadband. China Telecom, China Unicom and China Mobile will send out all cats (usually with installation fee).
Nowadays, the functions of lightcat products are not ordinary. In addition to dial-up networking, many lightcats also have their own Wi Fi, which can act as routers. In this case, do you need to buy additional routers by yourself?
For this problem, China Telecom published a paper in the afternoon to do popular science, explaining the advantages and disadvantages of optical cat and router.
In short,The main function of optical cat is broadband access products, which can support IPTV, telephone voice and Internet services at the same time, not only has the powerful data transmission ability, but also has the stronger security protection function.
The optical cat can also support Wi Fi, but it only takes a few devices. The router is a professional data transmission equipment. Through the wireless Wi Fi tape machine, the router can support Wi Fi,Support up to 128 access users。
In addition,The latest standard of Wi Fi has also reached Wi Fi 6, which is faster, with lower latency and less game jams.
Generally speaking, optical cat and router complement each other. It is not a pure question of who will replace whom. Only when the two products are used at the same time can more access devices and stronger network signals be ensured.
