Global provider of consumer and business networking products TP-LINK has unveiled the Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router, which it claims is the world’s first multi-band router based on 802.11ad-the latest, most powerful innovation in wireless technology.
Powered by the 802.11ad and 11ac MU-MIMO solutions from Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, the TP-LINK Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router brings new, robust capabilities of 802.11ad to the market, delivering ultra-fast speeds of up to 4.6Gbps on 60GHz bands. It will be available in U.S. stores in early 2016.
Leveraging Qualcomm Atheros’ 802.11ad wireless technology, the TP-LINK Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router uses a new frequency with untapped bandwidth and channels at 60GHz. It also utilizes existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, resulting in combined unprecedented 7Gbps Wi-Fi speeds throughout the home as well as combines 802.11ad with 802.11ac MU-MIMO to provide a step up in capacity. Superior to the standard dual-band structure, the router transmits locally stored media and content from the cloud drastically faster, ensuring that devices function at prime performance.
With the TP-LINK Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router, consumers can download an entire feature-length 4K HD video in about four minutes or transfer a thousand photos to a storage device in approximately five seconds, without any concerns about network interference.
“We are leading the way with 802.11ac wave 2 with MU-MIMO to improve efficiency in the 2.4/5 GHz bands and now once again are bringing groundbreaking 802.11ad technology to commercial fruition. These technologies combined with the unique features of TP-LINK’s Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router are designed to improve wireless networking and user experience,” said Rahul Patel, SVP and GM, Connectivity, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
“TP-LINK remains focused on delivering ultra-high speeds, improved reliability and increased network capacity to the home,” said Lewis Wu, Executive Vice President of TP-LINK USA. “Our Talon AD7200 Multi-band Wi-Fi Router will catalyze the entire industry, bringing faster-than-ever Wi-Fi speeds to homes.”
