World’s First Wireless AD Router, TP-Link® Talon AD7200, Now Available
Talon AD7200 Routers Deliver Speeds Up to 3x Faster than Wireless AC*
 
San Dimas, Calif. – May 18, 2016 – TP-Link®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products, today announced the availability of Talon AD7200, the world’s fastest router with the latest, most powerful wireless technology available, 802.11ad. Talon AD7200 routers run a new 60GHz band that reaches speeds significantly faster than Gigabit Ethernet*. Users can now download 100 photos in less than a second, an HD movie in less than 40 seconds and a full 4K movie in less than eight minutes—all over an interference-free home wireless network. The Talon AD7200 is currently available at Newegg.com, Fry’s Electronics and Micro Center retail stores.
 
“With the Talon AD7200, we’ve bringing consumers the fastest Wi-Fi ever made,” said Lewis Wu, executive vice president of TP-Link USA. “We’re excited to see the response from our customers when they are able to stream and download a 4K movies in the blink of an eye, or transfer huge files and photos in seconds. It’s a completely different experience than most of us are used to from our network, and we’re excited to deliver this innovative technology to the world for the very first time.”
 
“802.11ad technology powers a brand new class of experiences in the connected home, including lag-free wireless docking, multiple 4K video streams, and instantaneous content sharing, gaming and downloading,” said Chris Taylor, director of RF and wireless components, Strategy Analytics. “We expect that Wireless AD technology will continue to gain traction with consumers who need high-bandwidth interoperability in high-density environments.”
 
Multi-Band & Leading Antenna Design for Whole-Home Coverage
As the number of Wi-Fi devices in the home steadily rises, consumers will require faster, most reliable Wi-Fi to manage the high bandwidth across their home network. The Talon AD7200 runs multiple bands at an unprecedented 7.2Gbps** to provide complete coverage for all your devices.
The new 60GHz (4600Mbps) band is a perfect single-room Wi-Fi solution that supports more simultaneous connections without interference. On top of 60GHz, the router’s 5GHz (1733Mbps) and 2.4GHz (800Mbps) bands cover the rest of your home in powerful AC2600 Wi-Fi.
 
The Talon AD7200 uses eight high-gain antennas—seven external, one internal—as well as an external 60GHz antenna array to create strong Wi-Fi connections across your home. Beamforming helps the router locate Wi-Fi devices and focus its wireless signal in their direction.
 
Reliable Connections & Better Performance
The 60GHz band uses beam-steering technology to detect objects and direct the Talon AD7200’s Wi-Fi along the clearest path to devices. If there’s something between the router and a wireless device, like a chair or couch, beam-steering sends Wi-Fi around it for a stronger connection.
 
MU-MIMO allows the Talon AD7200 to simultaneously communicate with multiple devices on its 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, reducing wait times and speeding up connections. With MU-MIMO, more users can be online at once without affecting the router’s performance.
 
Faster Speeds & A More Powerful Network
A 1.4GHz dual-core processor balances the demands of your devices to keep their connections fast and uninterrupted. Four-Stream creates faster Wi-Fi connections by adding an extra data stream to both the Talon AD7200’s 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands. The four total streams per band greatly increases Wi-Fi speed, letting you enjoy intensive activities, like gaming or watching movies in 4K, without lag.
 
Now, you can game online, stream movies, download files and share media while the powerful dual-core processor seamlessly manages each Wi-Fi band, every connection and all of the router’s hardware and software.
