Portal Router Claims 300x Faster Speeds

Portal Router

Ignition Design Labs announced the launch of their Portal Wi-Fi router on Kickstarter, claiming to offer superior speed, coverage and reliability — even in congested WiFi environments. In crowded settings, such as multi-unit apartments, dorms and small businesses, Portal claims to perform up to 300 times faster than a conventional consumer router and delivers three times lower latency. It uses congestion management technologies to access additional airwaves, also known as spectrum. Portal’s patent-pending technologies received special FCC certification to operate in the entire 5GHz spectrum, unlike other consumer routers.

“98% of WiFi routers on the market today use less than 35% of the available spectrum,” said Terry Ngo, CEO and Co-founder of Ignition Design Labs. “Our engineers created Portal to fundamentally redefine the consumer WiFi experience. We give you three times more spectrum for faster video downloads, elimination of buffering issues and an improved overall Internet experience.”

This leap in technology earned Portal two Best of Show awards and other industry accolades at CES 2016.

“Speed, agility and power are only part of our formula for delivering an amazing wireless Internet experience,” said Seung Baek Yi, Vice President of Technology and Co-founder of Ignition Design Labs. “Our engineers also spent a lot of time making Portal secure, simple to set up, easy to use and reliable.”
