Taiwanese multinational headquartered in Taipie, D-Link Corporation is most popularly known in the tech industry for high-quality networking equipment.
Now, our home Wi-Fi networks are one of the most important devices in today’s lifestyle, and a high speed internet, means a happy family! (sort of, right?)
Well, buying a connection from your ISP (internet service provider), it’s the Wi-Fi router’s job of how well it handles incoming data, and at what speed it can serve the internet to your devices.
D-Link has just unveiled their latest routers – D-Link AC5300, AC3200 and AC3100 Ultra Performance models. On top of maximum speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps (Giga bits per second) for the AC5300 model, the 802.11ac devices feature a design language which may remind you of Star Wars spaceships, quite unusual as compared to conventional boxed designs of Wi-Fi routers.
Now D-Link call their models “attractive” and with a “modern form factor for today’s homes”, or maybe their striking design may or may not frighten small children in the houses or animals even, their design might appeal to some to replace their showpieces in the living room too!
Inside those designs, the top-notch hardware under-the-hood are definitely top quality, thanks to the 802.11ac tri-band beamforming speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps, couple with Gigabyte Ethernet and onboard USB 3.0 ports.
Another key feature is that users will have the ability to control the device using their smartphones and tablets. The company also offers an optional DWA-192 USB 3.0 adapter which can connect to laptops and compatible PCs to give them 802.11ac connection.
The D-Link AC3200 will be priced at $310 (Rs. 19,669 approx.) and is available from NewEgg, while the pricing and availability of the AC5300 and AC3100 from be announced in the next quarter.
Stay tuned for more from CES 2015.
