D-Link, the leading global manufacturer of broadband, wireless and networking solutions to the SOHO, SMB and Enterprise environments, today introduced a new standard-based 802.11g WiFi line of wireless products with a revolutionary smart antenna wireless networking technology that delivers breakthrough performance with up to eight times effective power over traditional 802.11g/b wireless networks.
D-Link Super G with MIMO enhances the speed and range of a wireless network through Smart Antenna technologies including beamforming, a technical capability to directionally focus the wireless signal at an angle towards the intended client. As opposed to a more omni-directional wireless transmission that generally propagates to the same range in all directions, beamforming will allow the signal to focus towards the target device recipient and allow the signal to propagate further ranges in that direction.
On the receive side, the optimal receive combining technology uses advanced signal processing to ensure that the incoming signals in the D-Link Super G with MIMO implementation are reassembled with the highest combined strength for maximum throughput. Even with non-MIMO enabled wireless products, the D-Link Super G with MIMO solution will give increased performance to current D-Link Xtreme G and AirPlus G+ families of product.
"High-speed wireless networking solutions like our new D-Link Super G with MIMO ultimately benefits not only an office based environment but also the consumer in the digital home, enabling next generation speed and range to easily handle emerging, bandwidth-intensive applications, including HD signals and on-line gaming," said Tahira Perveen, Country Sales Manager, D-Link UK and Ireland.
"The D-Link advanced Super G with smart antenna MIMO technology is single ended, which means, as well as enabling maximum throughput when two MIMO devices are connected, it will also communicate with all legacy WiFi 802.11g and 802.11b wireless devices in a seamless exchange of traffic, while optimising the network by amplifying the signals without compromising the interoperability, Tahira Perveen continues. "D-Link Super G with MIMO delivers blazingly fast throughput speeds, unprecedented range and complete interoperability between 802.11 technologies and multi-vendor environments."
The D-Link Super G with MIMO implementation is not only more compatible, but also offers the most cost effective design, resulting in a lower overall price point to consumers while yielding better performance. Using beamforming, D-Link Super G with MIMO operates at the highest possible speeds while delivering a strong 11g signal to legacy 11g and 11b devices for unsurpassed performance and throughput.
D-Link's Super G with MIMO solution features robust security to protect the wireless network from intruders, complying with the latest wireless networking security protocols, including WEP encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). The products are also capable of supporting the government-grade AES encryption, an integral component of the latest IEEE 802.11i security standard. D-Link's Super G wireless networking solution includes the Super G with MIMO DI-624M wireless router with 4-port switch and the Super G with MIMO DWL-G650M wireless CardBus adapter.
