TP-Link’s Talon AD7200 is the world’s first 802.11ad router


With Wi-Fi ac gaining mainstream momentum, TP-Link is looking to the future with the Talon AD7200, which is the world’s first 802.11ad router. IEEE802.11ad protocol involves addition of a new spectrum in the 57-66GHz range, in addition to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands used by Wi-Fi ac routers today. The end-result is a boost in bandwidth to 7.2Gb/s.

The Talon AD7200 features multi-user MU-MIMO technology, which comes in handy when you’re streaming high-definition content to several devices at the same time. Eight antennae ensure that you have a strong signal throughout your house.

Beamforming, parental control, guest networks, and ability to adjust network settings from your mobile device are all included. Here’s what’s on offer:

  • AD7200 Multi-band with 4-Stream technology delivers up to 7200Mbps Wi-Fi speeds over 2.4GHz (800Mbps), 5GHz (1733Mbps), and 60GHZ (4600Mbps) bands*
  • 60GHz band allows users to stream 4K HD movies in minutes and instantly share thousands of files and photos over an interference-free connection
  • MU-MIMO technology enables Wi-Fi for every device with multi-user support
  • Powerful 1.4GHz dual-core CPU to enjoy high-speed connections without interruption
  • Active 60Ghz adaptive beamforming enables Gigabit performance and dense deployment
  • Eight antennas with high-powered amplifiers supercharge your Wi-Fi signal
  • Four gigabit Ethernet ports enabling lightning-fast wired connections
  • Two USB 3.0 ports to share files, photos, music, and videos across the network
  • Beamforming technology to send targeted Wi-Fi signals to individual devices
  • Set time limits and block websites through parental controls to keep children safe
  • Guest networks provide visitors with Wi-Fi access separate from your main network
  • Advanced security encryption to protect your data
  • Check network status and adjust Wi-Fi settings from your mobile device (Android, iOS) using the TP-LINK Tether App
  • Supports 802.11ad and backwards-compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac

TP-Link will commence sales of the Talon AD7200 sometime in the coming months, which is when we’ll know how much the router will set you back.
