D-Link's Complete Line of 802.11n Wi-Fi Products Comply With Newly Ratified IEEE Standard

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - September 16, 2009) - D-Link, the end-to-end computer networking solutions provider for consumers and businesses, today welcomed the long-anticipated final ratification of the 802.11n standard for wireless networks. All of the company's 11n Wi-Fi home routers and business solutions comply with the latest wireless technology and have done so since long before the final ratification.

As one of the first networking companies to implement the updated draft 2.0 of the standard into its products, D-Link worked with major semiconductor manufacturers and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Standards Review Committee (RevCom) early in the development process.

D-Link's current line of 802.11n routers include the following:

--  DIR-615 Wireless N Router
--  DIR-625 RangeBooster N® Router
--  DIR-628 RangeBooster N Dual Band Router
--  DIR-655 Xtreme N® Gigabit Router
--  DIR-825 Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router
--  DGL-4500 Xtreme N Gaming Router

"The high-performance 802.11n standard has taken wireless home networking to new levels of consumer acceptance and satisfaction," says AJ Wang, chief technology officer for D-Link. "It has become the de facto platform for moving data, especially high-bandwidth files such as video, audio, gaming and photos, throughout the home and the D-Link brand has become synonymous with the digital home across the globe."

And as more businesses move toward mobility and remote computing, they are contributing to the rapid acceptance of 802.11n with Ethernet-like performance levels without new wiring. D-Link's standards-based business-class 802.11n solutions offer top quality at affordable prices and a variety of features and benefits, including Quality of Service (QoS), to prioritize high-bandwidth data for faster transmission, the latest Web security technology (WEP, WPA and WPA2) and backward compatibility with previous wireless standards (802.11b and 802.11g).

Today, businesses, government agencies and other organizations can choose from D-Link's family of 802.11n wireless solutions, including the following:

--  DAP-2590 AirPremier® N PoE Access Point (AP)
--  DAP-2553 AirPremier N Selectable Dual Band AP

"We have been confident in the 802.11n standard from the beginning, and did not hesitate to build our new wireless products, including business-class access points and other networking components, around the emerging standard due to its speed and scalability," said Wang. "Our customers now can take full advantage of this new standard, which delivers significantly higher Wi-Fi speed and range when streaming data, a boon to wireless networking in the corporate sector."
