There aren't many wireless technologies we enjoy every day more than wireless networking. This technology has evolved from humble beginnings nearly two decades ago with 802.11a and shortly after 802.11b. With the market having fully completed the transition from wireless n to ac, we now have several products coming through the line that will decide which way the market goes. Part of this is the push for the 160MHz band for 802.11ac in products like the new WRT3200ACM from Linksys and Netgear X4s, and the other part is the push for 60GHz wireless via 802.11ad, and that starts with the TP-Link Talon.
The Talon shares many of its design cues with the Archer C5400 we recently reviewed. In fact, they may as well share the same chassis as the Talon too sports an eight-antenna design. At its heart, the Talon is an AC2600 solution with a stacked 60GHz band to add an additional 4600 Mbps of capability. This means we have 800 Mbps on the 2.4GHz and 1733 Mbps on the 5GHz along with the throughput of the 60GHz mentioned above.
The specification sheet goes into more detail including the 4x1 configuration of the wired ports. Also, we have dual USB 3.0 ports for storage and printers, while the front of this solution houses a full set of buttons for controlling wireless, LEDs, and power.
