TRENDnet Launches AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router

TRENDnet Launches AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router TORRANCE, Calif. – January 5, 2015 – TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router, model TEW-828DRU, a next generation WiFi router featuring three concurrent wireless networks-two separate ultra-performance 1,300 Mbps WiFi AC networks and a 600 Mbps WiFi N network.   The average North American home has almost 10 WiFi-networked devices. Globally, there are currently 16 billion WiFi devices connected to the internet and that number is projected to more than double by 2020 1. TRENDnet’s TEW-828DRU is designed to effortlessly and intelligently manage the tremendous growth of WiFi devices in the home. SmartConnect technology virtually combines the router’s two separate 1,300 Mbps WiFi AC bands, so that only one WiFi AC network is visible, while managing each band individually. Slower WiFi AC devices are grouped together and assigned to the lower performing WiFi AC band and faster WiFi AC devices are moved to the highest performing WiFi AC band-thereby optimizing the WiFi speeds of each connected device. Networking throughput is further bolstered by an extreme performance 1 GHz dual core processor and by Broadcom’s second generation 5G WiFi XStream platform. The TEW-828DRU sports six high performance external antennas, all Gigabit network ports, and USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 share ports. Six high-end WiFi amplifiers maximiz...

MU-MIMO greatly improves performance in todays busy connected home which averages almost ten WiFi connected devices. The TEW-827DRU sports four high performance dual band external detachable antennas, all Gigabit network ports, and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 share ports.
