TRENDnet Announces a New Wi-Fi Speed Category With the AC2600 Dual Band Wireless

Posted: Jan 6, 2015 6:41 am | Networking Press Releases

TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the AC2600 Dual Band Wireless Router, model TEW-827DRU, a next generation Wi-Fi router which marks a new AC2600 speed threshold.




This next generation dual band Wi-Fi router features two concurrent wireless networks -- an ultra-performance 1,733 Mbps Wi-Fi AC network and an extreme performance 800 Mbps Wi-Fi N network. Quad-Stream architecture, on both the Wi-Fi AC and Wi-Fi N bands, produces the record breaking AC2600 category rating.


Multiple-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) antenna technology (Qualcomm MU/EFX platform) enables the router to serve multiple devices simultaneously, instead of processing device traffic in a queue one at a time. MU-MIMO greatly improves performance in today's busy connected home which averages almost ten Wi-Fi connected devices.


The TEW-827DRU sports four high performance dual band external detachable antennas, all Gigabit network ports, and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 share ports. Wi-Fi amplifiers maximize Wi-Fi signal output and targeted Beamforming technology increases real-time performance by directing stronger wireless signals to each connected device's specific location. Content sharing opportunities are expanded with Samba client support, an iTunes music server, and a BitTorrent download client.


For added protection, the router's Wi-Fi bands are pre-encrypted with their own unique eight character password. Thereby, eliminating the common hack of accessing a router using a default password (such as 'admin'). Furthermore, users can created guest networks which only allow internet access.


"We are excited about the TEW-827DRU's record breaking performance," stated Zak Wood, global marketing director of TRENDnet. "When two TEW-827DRU's are bridged together, we expect new Wi-Fi throughput records will be documented from independent reviewers, for both of the Wi-Fi AC and Wi-Fi N bands."
