Vendor tar­gets smart home net­works

D-Link Cor­po­ra­tion, a provider of con­nec­tiv­ity so­lu­tions for small, medium and large en­ter­prise busi­ness net­work­ing, has launched the D-Fend AC2600 WiFi router in the Mid­dle East and Africa (MEA) mar­ket.

Ac­cord­ing to the vendor, the lat­est wire­less DIR-2680 router comes with chip tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion from In­tel and is pow­ered by McAfee se­cu­rity.

Sak­keer Hus­sain, di­rec­tor Sales and Mar­ket­ing, D-Link Mid­dle East and Africa (MEA), said the launch of D-Fend, a con­cur­rent dual band wire­less router up­graded to the lat­est 802.11ac stan­dard tech­nol­ogy brings the fu­ture of high­band­width wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity, vastly in­creas­ing the speed and cov­er­age of smart home net­works.

Hus­sain said D-Link has col­lab­o­rated with In­tel and McAfee to bring to the MEA mar­ket a router that will af­ford users to en­joy stream­ing HD video and light­ning-fast down­loads on mul­ti­ple de­vices with­out sac­ri­fic­ing pri­vacy and safety. “The D-Fend smart home net­work pro­tec­tion gives home net­works an ex­tra layer of pow­er­ful and com­pre­hen­sive se­cu­rity,” he said. “With voice as­sis­tant com­pat­i­bil­ity for Ama­zon Alexa in­te­grated so that users can con­trol their net­work with voice com­mands, the DIR-2680 is the ideal net­work­ing so­lu­tion for the ever ex­pand­ing smart home net­work that com­bines a WiFi router with smart home pro­tec­tion, parental con­trols and anti-virus.”

He added that the lat­est router kicks se­cu­rity up a notch and helps to keep kids safe on­line with age-based pro­files and the abil­ity to pause the in­ter­net when needed. “All this is part of the com­pre­hen­sive parental con­trols of­fered by our D-Fend router,” he added.
