D-Link has lowered the access price to fast MU MIMO Wi Fi technology with the release of its sub $200 DSL-3785 AC1200 MU-MIMO router.
The device is ideal for consumers who have recently purchased a new Ultra High Definition TV and want fast streaming of content or for families who have expanded the amount of internet connected devices that they use at home.
The $199.95 device delivers the following key features.
• NBN / UFB Ready with an Integrated VDSL / ADSL2+ Modem built-in
• Wireless AC1200 Connectivity for a fast Wi-Fi network
• MU-MIMO Technology sends and receives data simultaneously to increase speed and efficiency
• Four Gigabit LAN ports with one configurable LAN/WAN port for high speed wired connections
• Simple to setup and manage
Research reveals that today’s households are connecting more devices to the Internet than ever before and with an average home having 17 devices in use, including mobile phones, tablets, and laptops, let alone smart TV’s, gaming consoles, and IoT devices, it’s important that each device gets the speed and coverage it deserves as old routers will not deliver fast streaming or allow for multiple devices to stream content quickly.
D Link claims their new Dual Band Wi-Fi AC1200 HD video streams, fast file transfers, and lag-free video chatting, all with less wireless interference for maximum throughput.
Managing Director of D-Link ANZ, Graeme Reardon, said “The new DSL-3785 Modem Router provides an affordable way for consumers to get connected to their NBN or UFB connections, whilst providing great performance. Using the latest MU-MIMO Wireless AC technology, the DSL-3875 provides an easy way to connect the Wi-Fi devices in your home to the Internet, and have a reliable, stable, Internet connection”.
The DSL-3785 uses the latest Wireless AC MU-MIMO technology, which provides a combined Wi-Fi speed of up to 1200Mbps and can simultaneously send streams of data to multiple compatible devices at once, speeding up the entire Wi-Fi network. The Router operates on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands concurrently using dual-band technology and internal antennas. This allows users to browse the web, chat and e-mail using the 2.4GHz band on a smartphone or tablet, while simultaneously streaming digital media, playing online games, or making Internet voice calls using the faster 5GHz band.
The DSL-3785 is backward compatible with existing 802.11n, 802.11g and 802.11b wireless equipment, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of both new and older Wi-Fi devices. In addition, it includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting Ethernet-enabled PCs, printers, and other Ethernet-enabled devices, making the DSL-3785 an ideal choice for users wanting a versatile Wi-Fi modem router.
