Functionality of ASUS networking equipment

First of all let's remember what is "networking equipment" and its purpose. Of course, many are familiar with the materiel, but anyway it is useful to refresh knowledge.


So the networking equipment is divided into active and passive, and the second has only the toggle and switches. We are not talking about it in this review but ASUS produces it. Nevertheless, noticeable functionality and controllability is suitable only for the active equipment, which we will analyze.

Networking equipment classification

According to Wikipedia: "... active equipment is the equipment containing circuits are powered from the mains or other sources, and performs the functions of amplification, signal conversion, etc." It refers to the ability to process signals by special algorithms. The package data transfer is realized network. Also each package contains technical information: information about its source, purpose, integrity of information, etc. Active networking equipment not only detects and transmits a signal, but processes the technical information, redirecting and spreading the incoming streams in accordance with embedded algorithms in the memory device. This "smart" feature, along with the mains, is a sign of active equipment. For example, the active equipment includes the following types of devices:

  • AC adapter is a board installed in computer and provides a connection to the LAN (local area network);
  • repeater is the unit with 2 ports, designed to replicate the signal in order to increase the length of the network segment;
  • hub (active hub, multiport repeater) is a device with 4-32 ports, used to group users into the network;
  • bridge is a device with 2 ports, usually used to connect multiple LAN groups that allows filtering of network traffic, analyzing network MAC-address;
  • switch is a device with a few (4-32) ports commonly used to combine several working LAN groups (otherwise known as a multiport bridge);
  • router is used to connect multiple LAN groups and allows filtering of network traffic, analyzing network IP-address;
  • media converter is a device with 2 ports normally used to convert the data transmission medium (coaxial↔ twisted pair, twisted pair ↔ optical fiber);
  • network transceiver is a unit with 2 ports normally used to convert the data interface (RS232↔V35, AUI↔UTP).

Note that some experts do not include repeater and hub, as these devices are repeating the signal to increase the distance of connection or topological branching and do not provide its processing. But the controlled hubs are active network equipment, as may have a certain "intellectual aspect."

In general, the most important signs of active network equipment is its ability to control and be controlled from outside.

The review of active networking is quite extensive aspect, so we'll start our approach from the most required by modern equipment allowing to save on GPRS and 3G, connect your favorite tablets and get the most free and fast internet. Today we look at current networking features of Wi-Fi-routers.

Actual devices must be able to function in multiple topologies and communicate over different protocols often not only the latest but also obsolete.

Networking devices of company ASUS not only follow the established standards but introduce new aspects that claim to be widely accepted.

Smartphone ZTE Nubia Z7 mini: review and testing

Over the past few years Chinese mobile phone manufacturers made a huge burst in development. Until recently their products had a plain design, low-quality build quality, slurred hardware and software with uncomfortable control aspect. The appearance of Android OS greatly simplified life of the creator of such devices and at the same time increased competition between them. "Fashion" OS applied in smartphones of world-known manufacturers strongly pulled Chinese devices in terms of functionality, but at the same time has increased demands to the hardware. The Chinese unnamed devices became popular for user with higher demands in terms of performance and design.

After a few years of competition for buyers in the domestic and foreign markets the Chinese smartphones were completely transformed. Companies whose names are in our area were not popular now offer phones with flagship systems, high-quality screen and uninteresting design. This is complemented by current versions of the Android OS with useful add-ons from the manufacturer and affordable price.

Against the background of bold newcomers more notable Chinese companies are in an interesting position. On the one hand, their image doesn’t allow to skim the cream like global brands, often offering overpriced smartphones with outdated features. On the other hand, they cannot make price dumping as the cost is higher than that of their younger compatriots with a small staff and advertising costs.

ZTE Nubia Z7 mini

In such circumstances some Chinese brands try to offer smartphones with good quality equipment and technical support at a price slightly higher than "anonymous" devices, but much lower than that of identical offers from international companies. This class of solutions includes the smartphone ZTE Nubia Z7 mini. This model was bought by the author for personal use, and now will try to tell you about the pros and cons of this model.
