TRENDnet® Launches First Dual Band Router

Posted June 1, 2011 by Kevin in Hardware

TORRANCE, Calif. -May 31, 2011-TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today from COMPUTEX Taipei announces the availability of the first to market 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR.

This is the first router to offer full 450 Mbps speeds on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless bands concurrently-for a total throughput of 900 Mbps. A popular Dual Band network configuration is to assign the low interference 5 GHz band to media center devices, and the more popular 2.4 GHz band to computers and peripherals that are typically only able to connect using the 2.4 GHz frequency.

Gigabit Ethernet ports maintain high performance wired connections. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) integrates other WPS supported wireless adapters at the touch of a button. Gone are the days of entering complicated encryption codes; simply press the WPS button on the TEW-692GR, and then press the WPS button on a compatible wireless adapter-the devices automatically exchange information and connect over a secure encrypted wireless signal. WMM technology further prioritizes video and audio packets.

“All other ‘450’ Dual Band routers on the market today only support 300 Mbps speeds on the 2.4 GHz band,” stated Pei Huang, President and CEO of TRENDnet. “TRENDnet continues to be the choice when building premium performance networks.”

The 450Mbps Concurrent Dual Band Wireless N Router, model TEW-692GR, comes with a three year limited warranty and will be available from all online and retail partners before the end of June.

The MSRP for the TEW-692GR is U.S. $249.99.
