Wi-Fi is great if there is little interference and congestion. Although as more and more people add Wi-Fi to their homes and businesses, 2.4GHz, and 5GHz bands aren’t enough to alleviate congestion and cross-interference between networks. 802.11ad can provide a huge jump in throughput and less congestion since it utilizes the 60GHz band. TP-LINK just announced Talon, a MU-MIMO 802.11ad router with max throughput of 7.2Gbps.
TP-LINK Talon AD7200 Multi-Band Wi-Fi Router is fully-loaded with a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU, active beamforming in 60GHz band, eight antennas with high-powered amplifiers, two USB 3.0 ports, four Gigabit Ethernet ports plus a gigabit WAN port, MU-MIMO for multi-user support, and is backwards compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac devices. Its max throughput of 7.2Gbps is achieved by 800Mbps at 2.4GHz, 1.733Gbps at 5GHz, and 4.6Gbps at 60GHZ. TP-LINK also has their Tether App (iOS, Android) which allows you to check network status and configure Talon’s settings from your mobile device.
