Wireless Cloud Routers Launched by D-Link
The company also releases a SharePoint Mobile Companion
The first two have high-power amplifiers that not only provide Wi-Fi connection to various devices, but they make sure the range is longer than usual, even in areas that are hard to reach.
The N750 Dual-Band Gigabit Cloud Router 2500 provides wireless transmissions of 750 Mbps, good for online video streaming, online gaming, fats downloads, etc.
The 2.4 GHz band provides 300 Mbps, while the 5 GHz band adds the remaining 450 Mbps.
The Cloud Router 1100 is basically the 2500 without the 5 GHz band support. That means a top speed of 300 Mbps, which is still good enough for web browsing, email, online chats and, though some may disagree, online games as well.
That leaves the Sharepoint Mobile Companion. This is an all-in-one wireless networking solution for when people are traveling.
It can behave as a Wi-Fi hotspot, a router, an access point or a repeater. Owners should even be allowed to set up a secure hotspot or wireless network, wherever they are. A single switch changes the setting.
As a bonus feature, the Mobile Companion has a USB port that enables a USB flash drive for instant mobile storage. Recharging phones and tablets through it is possible too.
"D-Link is committed to expanding the features available to users for the ultimate convenience and performance anywhere, anytime," said Ken Loyd , director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc.
"D-Link's latest Cloud Routers deliver increased range and wireless speeds for seamless video streaming and web-browsing anywhere in the home. In addition, the next generation SharePort Mobile Companion (DIR-505L) now offers charging for a smartphone or tablet device."
The three wireless products are available in the US. The D-Link Cloud Router 2500 is priced at $99.99 / €99.99, the Cloud Router 1100 at $39.99 / €39.99 and the SharePort Mobile Companion at $59.99 / €59.99.
