TRENDnet launched the high-performance 300Mbps Concurrent Dual-Band Wireless N Gigabit Router, model TEW-673GR. Built for extreme performance with an Atheros chipset, it delivers unsurpassed wireless speed, coverage and reliability with up to 12x the throughput and more than double the coverage of a wireless G router.
Concurrent Dual-Band technology enables two wireless networks simultaneously, using both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio frequencies. This allows users to create an advanced hybrid network in which wireless clients can be assigned to either the 2.4GHz or the 5GHz band.
Dual-band networking allows users to connect low-bandwidth clients to the more congested 2.4GHz band and high-bandwidth, latency-sensitive applications such as streaming HD multimedia content and online game play to the uncongested 5GHz band, resulting is a seamless wireless experience.
The TRENDnet TEW-673GR employs Atheros’ XSPAN® AR9002AP platform, which consists of the AR9220 and AR9223 XSPAN dual-band radio chipset. This solution robustly supports advanced multimedia applications with reliable wireless throughput and home coverage. Atheros XSPAN dual-concurrent technology provides leading performance, supporting up to 300Mbps physical data rates and an impressive 200Mbps of actual user throughput on both uplink and downlink transmissions. The platform also features Atheros’ 680MHz AR7161 wireless network processor and Atheros’ AR8316 Gigabit Ethernet switch to support unsurpassed bandwidth to both wired and wireless clients.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) integrates other WPS-supported wireless adapters at the touch of a button.
