TP-Link this week unveiled what it claims to be the world’s first router to support 802.11ad, called the TP-Link Talon AD7200 router, which offers speeds of up to 7.2Gbps speeds, with support for 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 60GHz wireless signals. Although the 60GHz band is only available in the same room as it cannot travel through walls.
To do this, the AD7200 is fitted with eight antennas, with its own amplifier, four Ethernet ports and two USB 3.0 ports.
It is also equipped with 11ac MU-MIMO technology, with multi-band Wi-Fi router that provides 2.5 times faster 11ac performance.
Qualcomm Technologies explains more about the router:
Qualcomm is continually investing in new, innovative technologies to meet the increasing bandwidth demands resulting from overcrowded networks. 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.
As of yet we don’t have any information on the pricing or worldwide availability for the TP-Link Talon AD7200.
