TrendNet has announced the AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router, model TEW-818DRU, at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It's powered by a 1GHz processor, high power radio amplifiers for extended wireless coverage, and Gigabit Wireless AC networking speeds.
The TEW-818DRU is designed to provide the optimum wireless experience in a busy connected home, says Zak Wood, director of global marketing for TrendNet. It creates two extreme performance wireless networks: an "ultimate performance" 1.3 Gigabits per second (Gbps) Wireless AC network, to connect all Wireless AC devices over the fastest wireless speeds available today; and an extreme performance 600 Megabits per second (Mbps) Wireless N band, to connect everyday wireless devices such as tablets, smart phones, and computers.
Beamforming technology directs the highest wireless signal strength to each user's specific location. On the wired side, the router features all Gigabit Ethernet ports. It also offers one USB 2.0 port and a 5 Gbps USB 3.0 port, to network high performance USB 3.0 storage devices and other peripherals. The wireless networks and management interface are pre-encrypted with unique passwords.
The TEW-818DRU will be available from retailers and other TrendNet partners this February. It will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$259.99. Go to http://www.trendnet.com for more info.
