The ASUS WL-700gE Wireless Storage Router
Now you can share without the need for a PC

BitTorrent Inc. today announced it is collaborating with a number of global hardware manufacturers on BitTorrent-embedded consumer products. ASUS, Planex and QNAP are among the first CE manufacturers to implement the BitTorrent download manager into their digital home devices.

We are thrilled to announce new CE devices enhanced with our technology, enabling consumers to enjoy a world of digital content even when they are away from their PCs, said Ashwin Navin, president and co-founder of BitTorrent. While already synonymous with efficient file delivery, BitTorrent is extending our reach beyond the PC and into a number of products and services to further strengthen the bridge between content and devices.

ASUS, Planex and QNAP are the first to announce plans to embed BitTorrents download manager and client into their respective digital home products. Products include wireless routers, media servers and network attached storage (NAS) devices. A BitTorrent-based router will enable users to connect to the Internet, schedule and download files all without the need for a traditional PC to be used.

Available products supporting BitTorrent:

  • ASUS WL-700gE Wireless Storage Router
  • ASUS WL-500gP Router
  • ASUS WL-500gW Router
  • Planex BRC-W14VG-BT Router

  • Planex BLW-HPMM-U Router
  • Planex BLW-HPMM-G Router
  • QNAP TS101 NAS Server
  • QNAP TS-201 NAS Server

BitTorrent technology is clearly going to be the default platform for downloading high-quality digital entertainment, which makes them a key partner for us and a key ingredient in our product roadmap, said TenLong Deng, Associate VP, Wireless Device Business Unit of ASUS. BitTorrent is an integral solution to connect the divide between popular content and our devices.
