The 5G WiFi ecosystem just continues to grow, as D-Link today became the latest company to offer a product equipped with Broadcom’s 5G WiFi technology.
Called the Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L), D-Link’s product uses 802.11ac technology (5G WiFi) to deliver wireless speeds of up to 1,750 Mbps – three times faster than the previous generation of Wi-Fi, 802.11n. The differentiation comes not only from gigabit speeds but also higher capacity and broader coverage for home networks – features that are enhancing the adoption of high-bandwidth gaming and HD streaming applications.
Broadcom has been leading the market adoption of 802.11ac by being first to sample and ship the technology. It’s focused on enabling the 5G WiFi ecosystem across all major wireless product segments, including routers and mobile devices. D-Link is the latest company to further enable this transition to faster, more reliable wireless coverage for HD-quality video streaming and near instantaneous data synch.
