TRENDnet Demos 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router
According to company officials, this is the first router to offer full 450Mbps technology on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Concurrent dual band technology sustains both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless networks at the same time.
Also, advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output or MIMO antenna technology with three spatial streams per antenna, generates a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450Mbps and exceptional wireless coverage, explained TRENDnet (News - Alert) sources.
There is no need to enter complicated encryption codes, the user is required to press the WPS button on the TEW-690AP, and then press the WPS button on a compatible wireless adapter. This enables the devices to automatically exchange information and connect. WMM technology has also prioritized video and audio packets.
It was revealed that Gigabit Ethernet ports maintain high performance wired connections and that WiFi (News - Alert) Protected Setup or WPS integrates other WPS supported wireless adapters at the touch of a button.
Sonny Su, Technology director for TRENDnet, said in a press release, “A true 450Mbps concurrent router will provide the networking enthusiast with another great option. With the proliferation of so many wireless networked devices, performance matters more than ever before.”
The 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR, comes with a three year limited warranty and is expected to be available from TRENDnet’s online and retail partners from April, 2011.
