D-Link NZ Launches High-Performance Wireless Router

D-Link NZ Launches High-performance Wireless AC1200 4G/3G Router

Allows users to share super-fast 4G/3G mobile Internet and fixed line broadband with the ability to create secure, personal hotspots

AUCKLAND, 28 September 2017 – D-Link NZ has launched a new wireless Mobile Broadband AC Router, the DWR-118, that connects to both household fixed and mobile broadband. It can combine multiple Internet connection types and is the ideal solution for setting up an Internet connection to share with your family and friends when you are on holiday, or need the ability to ‘fail over’ if your fixed Broadband connection fails.

D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “The DWR-118 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Router is ideal for households that require constant Internet connectivity, or simply do not have access to fixed broadband services. This includes those in areas where fixed line connectivity is not always reliable, or businesses that need a reliable way to switch over to the mobile network to ensure their Internet connection is always available. Many POS machines in Retail outlets such as café’s or hairdressers now use the Internet to take credit card transactions. If the fixed Broadband service fails, you are left with no way to run your business, and this product addresses that, by having the ability to ‘fail-over’ to a mobile service, simply by connecting a compatible 4G/3G dongle to the device.”

On top of this key fail-over capability, the Router’s load-balancing ability means that both mobile and fixed Internet connections can be used at the same time – making downloads faster and streaming of better quality. Households or businesses can also set up Wi-Fi ‘hotspots’ with combined dual-band wireless speeds of up to 1200Mbps, allowing more devices to be connected to the Internet simultaneously.

This router is great for situations where an impromptu wireless network is required, or where conventional wired network access is unavailable. The DWR-118 can even be installed on buses, trains, or boats, allowing passengers to access the Internet while commuting.

Reardon added, “Whether they have critical requirements for a fast and reliable Internet connection, or are part of a household or business with simple Internet needs, people today want fail-safe, fast connectivity. Using the power of both fixed and mobile networks means faster Internet connections and credible back-up options to make sure that you are always online.”
