Online router and broadband reviewer The Product Site has recently reviewed the first 802.11ac wireless router in the world and gives consumers a peak into what this new wireless technology offers.
Burnley, UK, August 20, 2012 -- The Product Site, UK’s most reliable shopping resource for networking routers and UK ISP reviews, recently had the opportunity to review the world’s first ever wireless routers running on the 802.11ac wireless standard. This opportunity allows the website to give their loyal customers the earliest firsthand information on the performance and value of the very latest wireless standard.
The 802.11ac wireless standard was introduced earlier this year, and since then many router manufacturers have introduced their 802.11ac routers. These said routers are designed to deliver greater than 1 GB of data per second, which means they are better suited for HD content downloading and data streaming. This new wireless standard is so far being dubbed as the fifth-generation Wi-Fi or 5G.
The 802.11 ac wireless routers reviewed by The Product Site boast of advanced specifications that have yet been seen in the market before. The routers, which contain 802.11ac wireless chips, operate at an 80-MHz channel bandwidth, which is twice the width used by the current 802.11n standard. The new standard also uses a higher modulation scheme of 256-QAM to increase the efficiency of data transfer. On top of that, it has the ability to transmit and receive beam-forming, a feature that helps draw content towards the direction of the receiver to increase the accuracy and efficiency of transfers and to extend the transmission range.
So far, the new standard is getting excellent reception in the market. However, there is news that the new wireless standard will operate only on the 5GHz band, thus taking advantage of the greater number of available channels that are also less crowded. With greater speeds, greater bandwidths, and less interference, these new routers are expected to significantly improve the wireless networking experience.
The Product Site has already reviewed the first 802.11 ac wireless routers from the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router EA4500 to the Netgear R6300 and many more designed by top router manufacturers such as D-Link, Netgear, Buffalo, Asus, and Linksys. These router brands are widely supported by the online router shopping source as their previous products are widely available on the site. The Product Site currently offers different types of routers from both brands to cater to both home and business users. Now, The Product Site will get dibs on the first 802.11ac wireless routers from these companies so their customers can also be the first ones to try out this latest wireless networking standard.
The Product Site is well-known in the router market for its reliable and trustworthy service and its extensive collection of routers and independent reviews. Thus, adding the latest wireless routers to their collection is expected to attract even more potential customers.
“The newest 802.11ac wireless standard is as good as promised, and we are pleased to be he bearer of good news to the router market,” Steven Johns, Marketing Manager from The Product Site shares. “We are also looking forward to finally bringing these highly advanced and efficient 802.11ac or 5G wireless routers to our customers so they can stream HD quality media anywhere around their house on any type of Wi-Fi device.”
Now, The Product Site is set to extend the same benefits to more shoppers by releasing its products and services globally and in future is geared to provide the same level of service for other IT products such as external hard drives, Wi-Fi type products (powerline adapters, 3G and 4G Dongles), latest smartphones (Apple iPhone5, Google Android Galaxy S3) and tablets (Apple iPad3, Galaxy Tab 2.0).
