You may have encountered such a problem in your life. For example, in places with concentrated traffic such as shopping malls or restaurants, there will always be disconnections when connecting to the merchant's WIFI or in your own home. If your home If there are too many people connected to the router, disconnections may occur. If there are few people connected, there will be no problem, but the experience will be very bad. In fact, this problem is very common in our lives. Let us understand why this problem occurs. Routers can be divided into ordinary home routers and industrial routers. Of course, in terms of price, home routers are certainly cheaper than industrial routers. Although their functions are similar, both are used to transmit WIFI signals and can access the Internet, but there are still differences between them. There are big differences, let us understand the differences between them below.
Industrial grade router

2. The difference between industrial grade routers and home routers:
1. Industrial-grade routers have higher hardware parameters such as CPU, cache, and memory, more NAT forwarding numbers, and more users who can access the Internet.

2. In terms of software functions, industrial-grade routers support more protocol standards and software management functions. In order to meet various network needs of enterprises, some need to support VPN, some need flow control, and some need to support various virtual services and More routing protocols.

3. In terms of price, the price of industrial-grade routers is several times that of home routers.

4. Industrial-grade wireless routers support more wireless access users and total access users than ordinary home routers.

Compared with home routers, the specific performance characteristics of industrial-grade routers are as follows:

3. Higher forwarding performance and higher machine capacity
The average number of employees in an enterprise is at least a dozen, and sometimes there are hundreds. If you need to meet the Internet needs of so many people at the same time, you will have very high requirements for the forwarding performance and capacity of the router. However, home routers have low density, limited forwarding performance and limited capacity. If they are used in public places like enterprises, there will be serious hidden dangers. Compared with home routers, industrial-grade routers have superior performance in this aspect and can meet the Internet needs of more people. Most industrial-grade routers use high-frequency network-specific processors, which have strong data processing capabilities and have farther range. The transmission distance and larger coverage area can greatly improve the network transmission speed, and the operating status is also very stable, which can better meet the high-speed Internet needs of many people.

4. Functional positioning more suitable for enterprises
For an enterprise, the usage environment of routers is much more complicated than that of homes, so industrial-grade routers also have many functions specially designed for enterprises. Broadband access router specially designed for small and medium-sized enterprises, supports multiple WAN port access, improves reliability, bandwidth and load balancing, and has functions such as IP-MAC binding, elastic flow control, connection limit, VPN application and other functions.

5. Richer routing protocols
Security and stability are also the most important needs of enterprise networks. In this regard, since home routers have fewer various protocols, they generally do not support functions such as internal/external attack defense and prevention of viruses, Trojans and hackers, making it difficult to provide multiple security protections for enterprises. Industrial-grade routers generally have multiple security services and richer routing protocols, such as SNMP, static routers, policy routers, unified management protocols, etc. Through these protocols, industrial-grade routers can ensure the safe operation of the network and protect user information. Will not be stolen.

6. Industrial-grade product design is more suitable for long-term use
Under normal circumstances, when families use routers, they do not use them for too long, so the router will have a lot of time to "rest". The situation is different when enterprises use routers. Due to work needs, most of the time they even need routers to run 24 hours a day, which puts higher requirements on the industrial design of routers. Compared with home routers, industrial-grade routers are more professional and refined in industrial design, can support long-term non-stop use, and are more suitable for enterprise application environments. Therefore, for enterprises, when deploying wireless coverage, they must choose professional industrial-grade routers. If they choose home routers to save costs, it will definitely affect the security and stability of the network, which will only bring problems to the enterprise. to greater losses.

Through the above analysis, it is not difficult to see that the hardware design of home routers and industrial-grade routers is actually the same. The more difference is in the software. The quality of a router depends on its software. Whether the function is powerful, of course, the hardware must keep up. Through the above explanation, we should now know why disconnections occur. In short, if you want more than 20 people to access the Internet at the same time, you must choose industrial grade Router, but if only a few people access the Internet and the environmental requirements are not high, then we can choose an ordinary router.
