TP-LINK shows off its Archer C7, a new WiFi router with 802.11ac support.
TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced the AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, Archer C7, the first in a family of next-generation routers that support the 802.11ac standard, to deliver faster data transfer rates of up to 1.75Gbps.
TP-LINK’s Archer C7 operates over both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to give users two dedicated networks to ensure lag-free throughput for work or entertainment. Devices processing simple tasks, such as sending e-mails or web browsing, can operate on the 2.4GHz band while those that process bandwidth intensive tasks, such as online gaming or HD video streaming, can leverage the 5GHz band – all at the same time.
The Archer C7 features three detachable external 5dBi antennas to serve the 5GHz band and three internal antennas that serve to 2.4GHz band, reducing co-channel interference. The combination helps users maintain high speeds across greater distances anywhere in a large home or office.
To provide an added level of security, TP-LINK ships all wireless routers pre-encrypted to ensure that end-user networks are protected from the moment they are plugged in. Users can customize their security settings and set-up a guest network to further protect personal data.
“Routers are the hub of the digital home and business. As more smart devices enter the scene, consumers need a smart router solution that can deliver speed and range, ease-of-use, solid security, and enable them to access their data wherever they are,” said Lewis Wu, Country Manager for TP-LINK USA.
Other standard features include IPv6 support as well as one gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports for ultra fast data transfers. Dual multi-functional USB 2.0 ports are also included, which allow users to share printers, files and media with different devices throughout a local area network and via an ftp server while away from home.
TP-LINK’s Archer C7 can serve as a powerful hub to support a robust AC1750 network for any home or business, available now at MSRP $149.99.
