D-Link comes out with a flagship 802.11ac dual-band router that significantly excels analogous models of the previous generation in terms of speed and reliability. Entitled DIR-890L, this model is able to ensure 3200 Mb/sec wireless connection speed. Thus, it’s an ideal choice for home wireless networks with uncompromising requirements towards bandwidth, the amount of mobile clients, and the possibility of working with several hard-core multimedia applications at a time (i.e. online gaming, HD stream video processing).
D-Link DIR-890L is powered by a highly efficient two-core processor, running at 1 GHz frequency. It provides for some unrivaled connection and data transfer speed within the network. As a result, this router can operate in two band frequencies simultaneously: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Herein, on 5 GHz band mode this model allows for the creation of two independent 802.11ac wireless networks, securing an overall connection speed of 3.2 Gb/sec: up to 600 Mb/sec in 2.4 GHz band environment and up to 1300 Mb/sec in 5 GHz band environment.
To continue, a new network solution is equipped with LAN, WAN ports, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. It supports the latest Wi-Fi data transfer technologies, Mydlink cloud service, DLNA-mediaserver options, an in-built VPN-server, a ‘guest zone’ as well as a set of free applications used for the adjustment and control of networks from Android/iOS-based mobile devices. In addition, it provides for the opportunity to create a personal cloud on individual USB drives.
D-Link has also realized in its DIR-890L router an intellectual directional signal shaping technology, called AC SmartBeam; it enables the reallocation of the radiated signal power directly towards mobile devices. This dramatically improves home network coverage quality, ensuring stability of operation at maximal speeds in any locational point.
Moreover, this model supports advanced SmartConnect and Bandsteering technologies. They enable automatic grouping of all connected clients according to their performance and dropping of the most efficient channel/band for them. This allows users to work with several resource-intensive applications at the highest speeds.
