” We all know the frustration of slowing down or losing the connection, ” notes Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer. ” Often this is due to a high volume of network traffic or noise generated by WiFi signals in the vicinity. The Razer Sila router actively prioritizes traffic and monitors channel strength by automatically switching between them for a stronger, faster connection whether it’s for gaming, watching Netflix, or just browsing the web. ”

The patented Multi-Channel Zero-Wait DFS technology on the Razer Sila enables clean WiFi channels to avoid network traffic and maintain the highest speed for the most demanding applications without any standby or downtime.

Ignition Design Labs became famous for launching the award-winning WiFi Portal Smart Router in 2016.
