Apple has always been characterized by greatly integrate all its products, and networking in the sector also has a very useful piece: New AirPort? Time Capsule. This is an improvement over the previous version, and presented in June during the developers conference (WWDC) company. Among the new features is the addition of new antennas and an improved design that maximizes the coverage of WiFi? device. It supports the 802.11ac standard in the case of AirPort? Time Capsule comes to exceed 1Gbps transfer to have three antennas. This standard will become more common as 2014 progresses, and is common in networking equipment and consumer electronics in 2015. The version of Time Capsule is that we will analyze which has a 2TB hard drive, and costs 299 euros. There is another variant with a 3TB drive with a price of 399 euros, but it is certainly less interesting. What was said in this review applies to the AirPort? Extreme as it shares design and connection options, but with the difference that does not include a hard drive. Design and performance The design of the Time Capsule has changed enough that Apple was selling in previous versions, and is very attractive. With a size of 9.8 cm x 9.8 cm and a height of 16.8 cm, is a team that does not take much. Some may qualify for an Apple TV stuffy, and not lack reason. how to jailbreak apple tv 3 It includes three Gigabit Ethernet connections, one Gigabit Ethernet connection to connect to our router, and a USB 2.0 port for connecting peripherals, especially hard drives and printers. You can criticize that Apple has not included a USB 3.0 connection on this model, or at least some further connection, but it all depends on the use you are going to give. AirPort? Time Capsule can operate simultaneously in bands 2.4 and 5 GHz 802.11n, 802.11ac in addition. The 5GHz band is always the currently recommended in urban environments because it has almost no interference problems with home networks. Geektopía Once connected to the router, you can configure the AirPort? Time Capsule easily with the iOS app or the Aiport Utility OS X. The process does not go beyond giving a name to the network (we can create a new network or extend an existing ), select a password for the network that is created (using WPA2 Personal by default), and if we activate the Back to My Mac to iCloud, that lets you control your Mac remotely via the Internet safely and store introducing new files like photos (includes a firewall itself). We may also create a guest WiFi? network and not have to share your password with our network we have guests at home. Is an independent network, so from there the teams that we have in our regular WiFi? network will not see. Includes options for parental control what times of day you can access the computer. We may safely access the disks to share AirPort? Time Capsule in three ways: with the password for the WiFi? network, with a specific password, or by creating user accounts. The basic functions for which we use the equipment is for automatic backups of your Mac is made ​​by Time Machine (easy to configure) and for storage (NAS) to our data files, series and movies to have them available in our home network. iFixit The hard disk that carries inside can be removed by opening the box bottom, as you see in the picture above. Yes, do not do it unless you are really sure what you're going to do. iFixit has an interesting guide so you can get inside the AirPort? Time Capsule, which'll see that carries a 3.5-inch hard drive that will be able to replace the one that you like (if you ever 3TB disks or more just put affordable is a good choice, or even a high capacity SSD). I love the level of integration coming to Apple products. The device includes 512MB of RAM and 32MB of flash memory to cache reading tasks. The team has several sinks and a fan that pulls the heat generated inside the device at the bottom of it. In iFixit repairability will give an 8 team, so it's a great thing. One last tip: do not be so mad you return, we can only read external hard drives formatted with HFS + (the file format of OS X). Those of you with Windows (NTFS) format is invalid. I will play format them before connecting to AirPort? Time Capsule. yield Despite initial problems with 802.11ac transfer rate and low antennas, this Apple computer networking works pretty fast. You can expect some speeds close to 450 Mbps in realistic environments in the band when we close 802.11ac AirPort?, and 802.11n bands around 250Mbps. One thing that I was unable to test speeds are trasnferencia files from a MacBook? Pro (mid 2012) to the Time Capsule's hard drive. In this case, it is rather low: between 11 and 15 MB / s (150 Mbps) of the theoretical 450 Mbps (300 Mbps and more realistic) that should arise in connection with an 802.11n 5GHz. Being the hard drive that includes a Seagate Barracuda 2TB, it will not be a factor that limits the performance of the WiFi? high speed drive (150MB / s) while we are connected by 802.11ac. The same can expect to make backups using Time Machine. Here's something that clearly does not work well, but surely the problem is in the software and everything goes through a software update. Updated Nov 25, 2013: the problem of transfer of 802.11ac WiFi? was corrected by Apple a while and the results of speeds are in the realm of normal for this type of connections. If not connected to another computer 802.11ac three antennas, then the transfer speed will be slower computer. conclusion AirPort? Time Capsule is not a team for everyone. It is certainly very appealing to those on a Mac (for profit Time Machine and Back to My Mac) to keep safely your personal information, but the lack of options for streaming content that is stored on the hard disk simple way to cast back many buyers. If we remove this paragraph, the firewall that leads including the possibility of creating two different networks (in addition to that we provide our WiFi? router), or the ability to create user accounts to access the hard drive make it a good option NAS and networking equipment (especially if he is made with some kind of discount, as the student).
