On the surface, the new Chateau is very similair to the previous models. We had a fantastic LTE18 launch with our partners at LMT – the leading mobile operator in Latvia. Our Chateau replaced the usual brands – and the client satisfaction skyrocketed. Most users appreciated better speed and stability, as well as the abundance of useful RouterOS features and general flexibility. And don’t forget the elegant look that fits right in anywhere – from traditional homes and luxury residences to modern office and corporate environments.
The next obvious step in the Chateau series was perfecting the wireless capabilities. With the Generation6 802.11ax wireless standard and Wave 2 support, Chateau LTE18 ax can deliver unprecedented speed. If we compare it to the previous generation, we’re looking at up to 40% higher speed in the 5 GHz and up to 90% higher speed in the 2.4 GHz spectrum! We’ve made massive improvements to the wireless radio and antennas. Chateau LTE18 ax supports MIMO 4x4 on LTE. There are 4 built-in LTE antennas and 2 optional external network antennas for exceptional coverage in your whole home!
With speeds like that, the ports also had to rise to the occasion. We kept four Gigabit Ethernet ports and added a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port on top. And let’s not forget the USB which can be handy for storage purposes.
The modern quad-core CPU running at 1.8 GHz combined with a solid GB of RAM packs a hefty punch when it comes to heavy operations like complex firewall rules, IPsec hardware encryption, using more threads or experimenting with advanced RouterOS features. And with the addition of WPA3 advanced encryption support, you’re safer than ever before.
