Delivering gigabit wireless speeds, higher capacity and broader coverage for home networks, D-Link has introduced its first 802.11ac router – the Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L) – is now available.

The Cloud Router 5700 offers dual-band wireless performance of up to 1750Mbps for high-bandwidth gaming and HD streaming applications, and features D-Link’s Cloud App, allowing consumers to monitor and control the home network remotely. The Cloud Router 5700 provides users with easy access to manage and stream local content from a connected USB drive to mobile devices via D-Link’s SharePort mobile app. 

Equipped with Broadcom’s 5G WiFi (802.11ac) chip, the Cloud Router 5700 delivers wireless speeds at up to 1750 Mbps (1300 ac + 450 n) – three times faster than the fastest Wireless N technology. Easy to set-up and delivering faster speeds and greater coverage, the Cloud Router 5700 is ideal for wireless HD video streaming and multi-person online gaming. Using the 5GHz band, the Cloud Router 5700 allows for less interference and a cleaner connection. In addition, the Cloud Router 5700 provides future proof with support of the IPv6 standard and is backwards compatible with previous generation 802.11n wireless standards, ensuring that current products and networks do not become obsolete.

“D-Link’s support of 802.11ac technology underscores an ongoing commitment to provide the industry’s latest and most comprehensive home network,” said Ken Loyd, director, consumer products, D-Link Systems. “Powered by 802.11ac technology, the Cloud Router 5700 not only tackles all the wireless needs of today’s connected home with unparalleled wireless signal and strength, but also caters directly to today’s mobile lifestyle with D-Link’s mydlink Cloud Services that enable consumers to monitor internet activity and access content saved onto a USB thumb drive via the SharePort app.” 

“The improved speed and range enabled by our 5G WiFi technology make it the preferred solution for the new generation of wireless routers," said Dino Bekis, Broadcom senior director, Access and Wireless Entertainment Business. “D-Link routers based on 5G WiFi will deliver reliable video streaming, faster file transfers, and an overall more satisfying wireless experience.”
