Are you tired of those suspicious, low-quality default routers from your service providers? So many households are switching to mobile internet, but those default routers can really ruin the experience. Not only do they lack features, speed, and power, the designs can get weird with all the black boxes and spiky antennas. That’s why we decided to take everything we’ve learned over the last 20 years of networking excellence and create a single device that will make most households happy: the MikroTik Chateau. It features a purposeful balance of extensive features, accessible pricing, and classy design that will fit right in.
Chateau is a high-speed, dual-band home access point that adapts to your needs. It features a powerful quad-core ARM CPU, a fast, reliable, and responsive CAT6 LTE modem for excellent mobile connectivity, and the most advanced networking software on the market – RouterOS. But don’t worry – it can be as simple or as complex as you want. Chateau is designed to serve the most diverse user groups: IT professionals can push it to its limits, regular households can plug it in and forget it exists. With Chateau, you will always have options.
5x Gigabit Ethernet ports can be useful to connect all your home devices (media servers, PC towers, TV’s). You can also keep the LTE as a backup and use the Gigabit Ethernet to connect to a wired ISP for even higher speeds!
Remove the bottleneck in your mobile setup
Do you dream of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and moving to the countryside? Perhaps you’ve already made the move but are frustrated by the slow internet speeds. Fear not, because Chateau is here to solve all your connectivity problems.
Many rural households are limited by cheap, featureless LTE routers that simply can’t handle the demands of modern internet usage. That’s where Chateau comes in. When the leading mobile operator in Latvia – LMT – replaced their previous client routers with Chateau devices, customer satisfaction went through the roof! Same LTE towers, same data plans, and a brand new Chateau – just like that! What is the point of having brand new phones, excellent LTE coverage, high-end laptops, and so on… if your old router is the bottleneck?
The freedom of LTE
Reach consistent speeds of up to 300 Mbps with carrier aggregation, as CAT6 allows devices to use multiple bands simultaneously. That is a huge advantage in areas with many LTE users. Chateau LTE6 provides better responsiveness in a crowded environment and higher efficiency for weaker signal situations in the countryside. Depending on the service provider, we have seen Internet speed doubling in rural areas after switching to carrier aggregation, so there is no need to wait for cable network expansions.
Perfect for all walks of life
Chateau comes with all the advanced RouterOS features, so you’re getting enterprise-level solutions with consumer-grade pricing. Run a secure VPN from the office directly to your home, enable all kinds of parental control, dive deep into specific firewall rules and IPsec hardware acceleration, configure VLANs, set up e-mail or SMS notifications… You can even automate complex trigger notifications. For example: “WARNING, WARNING! Your bandwidth has reached X amount for Y duration!” If you can imagine it – RouterOS can achieve it. However, if you don’t need all the complex stuff – Chateau can still be your best friend. In fact, this is the best choice for mobile operators that don’t want their clients to do any configuration. Chateau supports the TR-069 technology that allows creating custom remote client management options. You can have the most straightforward and basic router settings on the same web-page that you are using to pay the mobile bill. And we offer different label or printed branding options on volume orders. Furthermore, we can offer special project pricing and additional discounts for mobile operators to bring the costs down even more!
You don’t have to wait for cable network expansion to have fast and steady Internet at home. Mobile networks are great. If you’re using a Chateau.
