AC1000 Dual Band Cloud Router to arrive in stores mid-year

DIR-820L_A1_Image_1Jakarta, 24 June 2013 – D-Link International Pte Ltd, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of networking products has revealed the latest addition to its line of AC Cloud Routers, the DIR-820L.

The sleekly designed AC1000 Dual Band Cloud Router is equipped to provide transfer rates of up to 1 Gbps and operates on both the 2.4 GHz (up to 300Mbps) and 5 GHz (up to 867Mbps) wireless bands at the same time. This allows users to use the 2.4 GHz band for lesser band width activities such as surfing the web, chatting and emailing while simultaneously utilising the 5 GHZ band for heavier band width activities such as streaming digital media, playing online games, or making Internet phone calls.

Access Multimedia with SharePort Mobile™
Equipped with the USB 2.0 SharePort technology, the DIR-820L works with the free SharePort™ mobile app to enable users to share and enjoy photos, music, and movie files among connected devices.

Users can simply connect a USB drive to the DIR-820L router and effortlessly access stored personal files and multimedia. Music, video, and photos can be streamed or downloaded from the connected USB drive to multiple mobile devices from an intuitive touchscreen interface. It is is a great way to enjoy media without using valuable memory on your device – think of it as adding memory to your iPhone, iPad or Android.

Monitor and Manage your Network using mydlink app
The DIR-820L comes with mydlink™ Cloud Services for easy management and configuration from anywhere via the free smart mydlink™ phone app. It allows you to monitor and control your home network from virtually anywhere via an iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ device. Using the mydlink Lite app, users can check if a computer, mobile device, gaming console, media player or other device is connected to their home network – a valuable tool for wary parents. E-mail alert notifications warn users in the event that intrusion attempts are detected, allowing them to sign into the mydlink Cloud application and block unwanted devices. Additionally, e-mail alerts are sent whenever important security updates are available ensuring the most up-to-date security features.

Configure a Network Instantly with Quick Router Setup (QRS) Mobile
DIR-820L can be configured for the first time from the comfort of a couch, using the QRS (Quick Router Setup) Mobile app for iPhone, iPad or Android. Owners with these devices simply plug in the router, open the app, and follow a few easy steps to establish a wireless network throughout the home without needing to touch a computer. Once a network is established, new devices can be added at the touch of a button using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). WPA/WPA2 encryption and a built-in dual-active firewall (SPI and NAT) ensure that data sent wirelessly is secure.

mydlink Zero Configuration
Connecting the D-Link Cloud enabled product to mydlink enabled router is easy with mydlink Zero Configuration. Simply connect your mydlink-enabled device to the DIR-820L and the router will automatically link it to your mydlink account, you can setup your home surveillance instantly with D-Link Cloud Camera, stream your media files across the Internet with our ShareCenter Cloud Storage products without any configuration.

IPv6 Support
Like all new D-Link Routers, the DIR-820L includes support for IPv6, making it forward compatible with the forthcoming changes to the protocol system that powers the Internet.

About the 802.11ac standard
Developed at the IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the 802.11ac standard offers much faster data speeds than the current 802.11n, by sending multiple simultaneous streams of data from access points to devices. Promising easier set up, faster speeds and greater coverage, 802.11ac is ideal for wireless HD and 3D streaming, lightly-compressed wireless display and high-speed synchronization. The increased wireless transfer speeds presented by 802.11ac may also help to improve the battery life of mobile devices. Since files download more quickly, less energy is expended in the long run, resulting in up to six times more power efficiency for the same amount of data.

The DIR-820L D-Link Wireless AC Cloud Router will be available by the end of Q2, 2013.
