The purpose of creating Mi Wi-Fi Router HD was to answer two symbolic questions: “Who we are?” and “Where we are going?”. The first was about the creation of an original recognizable format of the product, and the second — a clear indication of the direction of the company’s development in the field of creating routers. Looking at the Mi Wi-Fi Router HD you realize that, without a doubt, the designers achieved their goals. Also, you can see other routers in this section.
Unlike its plastic colleagues, the device received a metal casing made of aluminum-magnesium alloy. Its 4 omnidirectional antennas operate in two bands: at speeds of up to 800 Mbit/s at a frequency of 2.4 GHz and up to 1733 Mbit/s at a frequency of 5 GHz.
Mi Wi-Fi Router HD is equipped with a powerful electronic “stuffing”:
- Processor Qualcomm IPQ8064 (2 cores) with a clock frequency of 1.4 GHz;
- Dual-core network coprocessor with a frequency of 733 MHz;
- 512 MB of RAM (DDR3-1600).
Thanks to such impressive specs, the router is able to produce an extremely strong signal (coverage area is up to 200 square meters). An interesting design feature is the built-in Seagate drive with a capacity of 1 TB. Thus, using Mi Wi-Fi Router HD, you can store the most liked or important information.
To cool such power, a special design of the gadget’s body was developed, with a cooling channel system, and an intellectual low-speed “noiseless” fan was placed inside the device.
However, the real pride of the Mi Wi-Fi Router HD is something else. There is not a gigabit port or a USB 3.0 connector. The true pearl of the Chinese engineers' creation is the support of the router technology MU-MIMO. This extremely useful technology allows the router to support equally fast data transfer to several devices simultaneously at once. Now, connected to Mi Wi-Fi Router HD devices don’t have to “stand in line for speedy service”, how it was in routers without MU-MIMO support.
As you can see, at the moment, Mi Wi-Fi Router HD is the most innovative and top-end router Xiaomi. Its design and technical parameters allow answering, probably, all the modern challenges associated with the qualitative construction of “home” networks. Looking at this masterpiece of science and technology, the answers to the questions “who we are?” and “where are we going?” become obvious in the Xiaomi context.
