Jakarta, 24 October 2012 – D-Link International Pte Ltd, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of networking products today introduced the DIR-865L, a ground breaking router which merges the superior bandwidth and efficiency of the brand-new 802.11ac wireless standard with the versatility of D-Link’s industry-leading cloud services.

“As D-Link’s first cloud router powered by 802.11ac, the DIR-865L is poised to quench the thirst of bandwidth-hungry customers with its unparalleled speed, range, and versatility,” said Estella Tan, Sales Director, D-Link International Pte Ltd. “802.11ac is the perfect platform to support users that want to stream HD multimedia to multiple wireless devices throughout the home. As more resources shift to the cloud and our customers’ needs continue to grow,
D-Link 802.11ac routers will provide the power and flexibility to cope with the ballooning demand
for bandwidth.”

New Frontier of Wireless Networking

The DIR-865L Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router, powered by Broadcom’s 5G Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11ac chipset, makes use of the 5GHz frequency band to deliver speeds up to three times faster than that of Wireless N. Using multiple channels, this router serves wireless speeds of up to 1750 Mbps (1300 Mbps over the 5GHz band plus 450 Mbps over the 2.4GHz band). Backwards compatible with existing wireless devices operating on earlier standards such as 802.11a/b/g/n, 802.11ac provides improved coverage using a beam-forming system that sends a targeted stream of data directly from the router to the device, thus increasing range and overcoming obstructions for full-home coverage.

Cloud-based Configuration and Management

D-Link Cloud Router owners have the option to manage and control their 802.11ac wireless networks from the mydlink Cloud Services portal or via an iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ device with the mydlink Lite app installed. The app makes it easy to check the status of family members whenever they arrive home and go online. Parents can also monitor which sites are being visited and block dangerous websites at the touch of a screen. Alert notifications warn users in the event that intrusion attempts are detected and blocked, or whenever important security updates are available.

Cloud-based File-Sharing and Multimedia

SharePort™ Mobile & SharePort™ Web File Access

The SharePort Mobile app for iOS or Android™ provides access to files and multimedia stored on a USB drive. Music, video, and photos can be streamed or transferred from the connected USB drive to multiple mobile devices. SharePort Web File Access offers a convenient web interface to retrieve files and multimedia shared via SharePort Plus.

A Host of Additional Features:

SharePort™ Plus

D-Link SharePort Plus technology makes it easy to share files and multimedia to computers and mobile devices. Using USB, users can connect a multi-function printer (MFP), scanner, or storage device to the router sharing access to these devices to multiple computers.

DLNA Media Server

The DIR-865L includes a fully-functional DLNA server for streaming multimedia files including photos, music, and videos to any compatible DLNA media player.

IPv6 Support

Like all new D-Link Routers, the DIR-865L includes support for IPv6, making it forward compatible with the forthcoming changes to the protocol system that powers the Internet.

Parental Controls
Parents concerned about what their children view online can get peace of mind after configuring parental controls with award-winning web contentment filtering powered by OpenDNS.

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-865L D-Link Wireless AC Cloud Router will be available in
