D-Link wants you to welcome 2020 with better Wi-Fi for your business and home

Leading global networking products provider D-Link International Pte. Ltd. makes starting your year right with “beyond-better” Wi-Fi connectivity for your business and home easier with the EXO series mesh router system.

A breakthrough from the traditional mesh starter kits that always comes in a set of three or more devices, the EXO series includes smart mesh routers DIR-2660 (AC2600), and DIR-1360 (AC1300) and mesh extenders DRA-2060 (AC2000) and DRA-1360 (AC1300), with each router pairable with either one of the extenders.

Any pairing between the DIR-2660 or DIR-1360 router and the DRA-2060 or DRA-1360 extenders forms a complete Wi-Fi mesh that covers the entire home or business to ensure uninterrupted internet connection. This setup allows the whole family or team to enjoy internet connection anywhere in the home or office, even in the farthest corners.

The EXO series is equipped with McAfee Secure Home Platform to protect all smart devices connected to the router. It also has unlimited McAfee LiveSafe license protection to secure all PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices from unwanted risks.

The EXO series routers is powered by a dual-core processor to guarantee enough processing power to meet the most-demanding tasks such as 4K Ultra HD video streaming, online multiplayer gaming, and long hours of web surfing.

Each EXO series router can be paired with up to eight units of DRA series – wired and wireless – to create a mesh solution even for much bigger spaces. Each DRA extender choose the best path back to the EXO router, selects the best wireless channel and auto-recovers Wi-Fi should any of the devices go down.

The DIR-2660 router delivers a combined Wi-Fi speed of up to 800 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 1,732 Mbps on 5.0 GHz. The DIR-1360, on the other hand, offers Wi-Fi speeds of up to 400 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps on 5.0 GHz. The extenders ensure greater and faster coverage with their dual-band Wi-Fi capability. The DRA-2060 supports up to 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 1,733 Mbps on 5.0 GHz while the DRA-1360 delivers up to 400 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps on 5.0 GHz.

With D-Link and McAfee’s partnership, each EXO router comes with a five-year gateway license that can provide real-time protection to all devices connected to it, including passive devices such as contact sensors and motion sensors. The routers will constantly monitor traffic and alert the user of any possibility of a security compromise. To further enhance protection, it has the capability to notify the user of the latest firmware update and advise on changing the device’s default common password.

For additional protection, the D-Link EXO also gives all active devices a two-year unlimited full version of McAfee LiveSafe client software to ensure they are well protected even while on the move as users may accidentally access malicious websites through hotspots. Besides the security control, the EXO provides schedule control and parental control to help parents regulate their children’s device usage.

The app also features firmware over-the-air (FOTA) which automatically upgrades all devices with the latest firmware for any possible further enhancement.
