D-Link just dove into 802.11ac territory with the introduction of its new Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L). This dual-band device takes advantage of the upcoming 802.11ac standard currently under development, which makes this a draft 802.11ac router. D-Link advertises up to 1750Mbps of throughput, though that’s spread across two bands as 1300Mbps (Wireless-AC) and 450Mbps (Wireless-N).
A Broadcom 5G Wi-Fi chip makes all the magic happen. In addition to Wireless-AC speeds, D-Link’s Cloud Router 5700 comes equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, amplified wireless signal, USB drive sharing, and app-enabled remote monitoring and control.
“D-Link’s support of 802.11ac technology underscores an ongoing commitment to provide the industry’s latest and most comprehensive home network,” said Ken Loyd, director, consumer products, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Powered by 802.11ac technology, the Cloud Router 5700 not only tackles all the wireless needs of today’s connected home with unparalleled wireless signal and strength, but also caters directly to today’s mobile lifestyle with D-Link’s mydlink Cloud Services that enable consumers to monitor internet activity and access content saved onto a USB thumb drive via the SharePort app.”
D-Link’s Cloud Router 5700 is available now for $190 MSRP. More info can be found on the item’sproduct page.
