TRENDnet Launches First to Market 450Mbps Wireless Access Point

TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the launch of the first to market 450Mbps Wireless N Access Point, model TEW-690AP, which supports Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS), and Repeater mode functionality.

Advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna technology with three spatial streams per antenna, generates a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450 Mbps and exceptional wireless coverage.

A Gigabit Ethernet port maintains high performance wired connections. Advanced features include 4 SSIDs per wireless band, unique encryption for each SSID, WMM Quality of Service (QoS) data prioritization, WPA2-RADIUS encryption, and a convenient on/off power switch.

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) integrates other WPS supported wireless adapters at the touch of a button. Gone are the days of entering complicated encryption codes; simply press the WPS button on the TEW-690AP, and then press the WPS button on a compatible wireless adapter-the devices automatically exchange information and connect.

"TRENDnet will be the first brand to bring a full portfolio of 450Mbps solutions to market," stated Zak Wood, Director of Global Marketing for TRENDnet. "Expect more first to market announcements in the coming New Year at CES."

The 450Mbps Wireless N Access Point, model TEW-690AP, comes with a three year limited warranty and is currently shipping to TRENDnet's online and retail partners.

The MSRP for the TEW-690AP is U.S. $ 199.99.

This should include the 60GHz specturm, which is why they are coming out with the 450MBPS speeds. Now if they get USB 2.0/3.0 kits to go with it, we will be in business.

60GHz Spectrum?!? What's that?? :wtf:

the 802.11n works on 2.4/5 GHz band, because there are the only ones that are free...

i think he means 60Hz using either the 2.4ghz range or 5ghz range.

60 GHz band will be used in the "next big thing", 802.11ad, a new protocol for very high data transfer inside a room. From 1 gbps up to 7 gbps, the ieee wants it to eliminate wiring between computers, printers, tvs, mobile phones... it won't substitute 802.11N, the next wireless protocol in the 2.4 and 5 GHz band will be 802.11ac. The idea is that ac and ad will co-exist.

450Mbps. What rating does the backbone have for more than two devices communicating and overhead on that?

Not true, there are 3 official bandwidths for N 2.4 Ghz for long distances, but the least throughput, 5 Ghz the best mix of data bandwidth and signal strength, and 60 GHz which has massive throughput but horrible range, it's aimed at home theater stuff, so you can have your TV and BluRay and Reciver all connected wirelessly. It's new, and isn't officially supported like USB 3.0, but it's a new and interesting technology.

hrm...something about this seems mighty fishy...

3 streams per antenns. this thing has 3 antenna so 9 total streams. it is 450Mbps so divide by 9 and you get 50Mbps per stream? do they think just adding antennas will increase throughput? somebody needs to explain this to me.
