Razer Unveils Sila 5G Router, The First-Ever 5G Gaming Router
As one of the most demanding and most rewarding industries in the world, gaming dictates the trends of technology.
Gadgets, equipment, and software solutions are developed mainly to fit the vivid gaming scene. One of the possible trends that we can expect to kickstart in 2020 is 5G networking. And Razer’s latest 5G router named Sila is a perfect product to spearhead the new trend.
Focusing on You
Simply put, Razer’s Sila 5G router is a force to be reckoned with. The consumer electronics developer presented its new high-speed networking device at CES 2020, the global consumer tech event held in Las Vegas. The event houses dozens of tech giants that gather in Nevada to showcase their new products. Each year, the world gets to meet the future of gaming. So, it’s safe to say: it’s an event we all look forward to.
As one of the rising stars of the consumer electronics industry, Razer prepared a host of surprises for this event. However, the absolute winner of the line-up is the brand-new Sila 5G router. The router is an updated version of the Sila router from 2018. Despite not being an established name in the realm of routers, the new device brings Razer there closer than ever before. Here are the specs for the new device.

Sila 5G boasts a simple and elegant design. Black and sleek, it even reminds us of the Amazon Echo Plus. But wait until you see what’s inside. The networking device uses Razer’s proprietary FasTrack engine. Sila 5G also has a consistently Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service) feature. The feature is there to monitor traffic and prioritizes bandwidth for gaming and streaming. With this device, you can also choose your priority devices manually. In other words, consoles over SmartTV or the other way around, it’s your call. Another noteworthy trait of the device is the ability to operate as a mesh network. Thanks to the rechargeable battery and SIM card, it can be used as a mobile hotspot as well. Have a look at the detailed specs:

Essentially, what this device promises to do is put a spring in your step, figuratively speaking. The game-changing device is there to erase the lines between mobile gaming and playing at home. The fact that you can use it as a mobile hotspot ensures safety for your connection and top-notch delivery of content. As the company puts it, you will have a variety of “latency-free tournaments” wherever you go. Of course, that only depends on your mobile broadband connection, but on the device’s end, you will be secure. The 5G network is there to boost the gaming experience in case you have limited options with your existing broadband connection.
As 5G slowly evolves into a hot topic in iGaming, Razer decided to make the first move. And the ball is now in the industry’s court.
The Possibilities Are Endless
For now, the Sila 5G gaming router is just a concept that is yet to take roots. However, even now we can imagine ample advantages of using this device. Your gaming can be taken anywhere without significant impacts on the quality of gameplay. Just imagine what you could do. Favorite titles will be at your fingertips – whether it’s regular video games or even online casino gaming. You can scour the casino gaming directory for hours on end and play even the most demanding of video game titles.
Nevertheless, we must remain patient, for the release date and price have not been announced. The device was developed in a collaboration with the government in Singapore and a local telecom company. Razer’s headquarters are in Singapore, so the company announced that, for now, there are no plans to launch the device outside the country. But, one can hope! As technology trends start evolving during the new year, more updates will be released.
