D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, has received draft 802.11n certifications granted by the Wi-Fi Alliance, which officially recognized the D-Link Xtreme N Router and Notebook Adapter as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 802.11n draft 2.0.
The distinction guarantees interoperability among 11n products, adherence to security protocol and backward compatibility with previous generations of Wi-Fi gear, including popular 802.11g products.
The D-Link Xtreme N Router (DIR-655) and Xtreme N Notebook Adapter (DWA-652) are the first products to receive Wi-Fi Alliance testing and subsequent certification. As a result, they will be labeled as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 802.11n draft 2.0 products and will bear a distinctive and prestigious logo, alerting consumers that the merchandise has passed the rigors of industry standards testing.
“We commend D-Link for achieving Wi-Fi certification for the Xtreme N Router and Notebook Adapter,” said Wi-Fi Alliance managing director Frank Hanzlik. “Having met the rigorous requirements for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 802.11n draft 2.0 is quite an accomplishment, and reflects D-Link’s commitment to interoperable, protected next-generation Wi-Fi technology.”
Delivering significantly faster speeds and further range over previous-generation Wi-Fi gear, products based on the new 802.11n draft 2.0 standard can do more than ever before, offering consumers whole-home coverage and enabling content-rich applications such as streaming high-definition video, online gaming with multiple users on a single network, and speedy file transfer of photos, music, and more. Small business users will be able to leverage 802.11n products to increase network capacity and improve robustness.
