At this years CES a lot of companies have been busy launching new products, and TP-LINK is just one of those to launch their new line of networking solutions during the show, the new 2013 line which they launched earlier today includes their new flagship Dual Band Gigabit Router, new Pocket Routers, Powerline Adapters and Wireless Range Extenders.
Each of which has been built to work in the office, home or even on the go, the first is their new AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router which will now become the companies flagship model with wireless speeds of up to 1750Mbps, 3 times faster than 802.11n, the new router is defiantly fast and includes various Gigabit ports and dual USB sharing ports for sharing data over your network wirelessly.
The router will also be compatible with next generation WiFi devices as well as previous 802.11 b/g/n devices.
Probably one of the coolest products to be released (at least in my view) is the Mini Pocket Router which can provide up to 300Mbps whilst on the go and can be connected wirelessly to share a connect across a range of devices.
But that’s the obvious part, the cool part is that the Pocket Router also includes a USB port which can be used to charge a smartphone or tablet PC, or be used as a mini server allowing the user to share files stored on a USB flash drive or hard disk over that same wireless network.
TP-LINK are also very well-known for their Powerline adapters, in fact they are some of the best in the industry, in fact I use one more or less every day so I have a good idea of their performance, however that review is now outdated and according to TP-LINK their Powerline adapters have gotten even better with the release of the new AV200/AV500 Nano Powerline Starter Kits.
The new kits offer either 200 or 500Mbps data transfer rates depending on whether you pick up the AV200 or the AV500, and come in an extremely small design but still allow for transfers up to 300 meters.
Alongside this TP-LINK also introduced a set of 11ac and Media Adpters which will allow users to convert Ethernet powered devices into a wireless device and allows for high-quality connections for bandwidth intensive applications like HD video streaming, online gaming and connected internet-enabled TVs, set-top boxes or a games console.
This includes the TP-LINK AC600 Dual Band USB Adapter allowing users to use the 802.11ac standard on a PC or laptop, providing speeds of up to 433Mbps over the 5GHz band or 150Mbps over the 2.4GHz band.
Then there’s the TP-LINK N600 Universal Wireless Dual Band Entertainment Adapter that con convert normal devices into wireless devices.
Everyone has problems with a dying internet connection around the house, the TL-WA850RE wall socket mounted range extender tackles this, extending the coverage and improving the signal of existing wireless networks within the home, hotels or a small office without the use of wires or cables.
Alongside which TP-LINK also released the new 300Mbps AV200, and the AV500 Wireless N Powerline Extenders that also extend a wireless connection.
Nearly at the end of the list there’s the TP-LINK TL-MR5350 Pebble portable 3G router that can support WCDMA HSPA+ connections up to 21Mbps with a 3G SIM card inserted, with a 2000mAh battery that will allow this to last 6 hours, and features 802.11 b/g/n WiFi with a pebble design, Micro SD card slot for up to 32GB extendablity and a micro USB port.
And finally TP-LINK also revealed the Halo TL-WR706N which is basically a shrunken wireless router that can wall socket mounted, and includes a 802.11n wireless card with speeds of up to 150MBps.
