D-Link Launches new Wireless AC MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Routers 

Premium performance, faster speeds and support for more devices 

SYDNEY, 19 September 2017 – D-Link ANZ has launched its two newest Routers, the DIR-882 AC2600 ‘EXO’ MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router and the DIR-878 AC1900 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router.  

The AC2600 EXO Router delivers premium performance for 4K HD streaming, gaming and simultaneous device usage across a home. 


D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “These two new Routers further deliver on D-Link’s promise of producing Routers packed with premium features, faster speeds and support for more devices providing the perfect combination of performance and ease of use. With MU-MIMO as well as ‘Whole Home Wi-Fi’ support on both products, D-Link are bringing the latest Wi-Fi technology to the market at an affordable price point.” 

The D-Link AC2600 MU-MIMO ‘EXO’ Wi-Fi Router (DIR-882) features amazing dual-band speeds of up to 2533Mbps, a high performance dual-core processor for powerful wired and wireless network speeds, and AC SmartBeam technology which tracks connected devices for enhanced Wi-Fi speed and range. The AC2600 EXO router also features USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports to allow remote access to private storage to stream videos, photos, music, and files throughout the home. In addition, the Router includes the latest MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology, which provides a high-bandwidth Wi-Fi signal to multiple devices at the same time. 
Reardon added, "The DIR-882 AC2600 EXO Router is the latest high-performance Router in our line-up, sitting between our flagship AC5300 DIR-895 Router, and the new DIR-878, and is specifically designed for 4K streamers and gamers. It also enables users to reliably maintain the strongest Wi-Fi signal on multiple devices at one time, whether streaming, gaming, surfing the web, or working from home. Additionally, it creates a ‘PowerZone’ of high-performance Wi-Fi right where you need it, but can be seamlessly expanded to gain extra coverage should your home need it by adding Whole Home Wi-Fi enabled Range Extenders, giving you a scalable mesh network solution.” 
The AC2600 EXO Router supports up to four data streams to maximise connection speeds to multiple devices simultaneously. Users can play an online video game on one device, while streaming 4K HD videos to another device at the same time, all with less buffering and lag for an optimal user experience throughout a home. The AC2600 EXO Router also supports the latest 160 MHz bandwidth, doubling the throughput on supported devices to help ensure the fastest possible speeds and to optimize intense data transfer. The combination of these features makes the Router ideal for 4K HD streaming and lag-free online gaming. 
The DIR-878 AC1900 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router is a powerful wireless networking solution designed for Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) environments. By combining high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi with dual-band technology and Gigabit Ethernet ports, the DIR-878 provides a seamless networking experience with a high degree of convenience and flexibility, and can also be seamlessly expanded with D-Link’s ‘Whole Home Wi-Fi’ mesh networking solution as and when needed. The DIR-878’s advanced security features help keep data safe from unwanted network intruders. These features together with the increased range and reliability of Wireless AC technology, help provide a protected network for devices in your home or office. 
The DIR-878 brings fast Wi-Fi speeds of up to 1900Mbps so you can meet the increasing demand from multimedia applications. In addition, Gigabit Ethernet ports give you solid, dependable wired performance for devices such as Network Attached Storage (NAS), media centres, and gaming consoles. The built-in Quality of Service (QoS) engine allows you to prioritise important traffic to ensure that your favourite applications are receiving optimal bandwidth. Like the DIR-882, the DIR-878 brings a host of new technologies including 802.11ac MU-MIMO technology, to create an excellent wireless networking experience.
