The main characteristics of this new TP-LINK RE580D is that it incorporates Simultaneous dual band with AC Wi-Fi. We can get a speed up to 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band thanks to TurboQAM technology Broadcom and its three external antennas in 3T3R MIMO configuration. According to the 5GHz band, we can achieve a speed of up to 1,300Mbps thanks to its three antennas in MIMO 3T3R configuration and Wi-Fi AC.
The three external antennas of this equipment are detachable and dual, they emit in the two frequency bands at the same time, it also has Wi-Fi amplifiers to emit with a power of up to 700mWIdeal for high wireless transfer rates. This equipment incorporates all the improvements of AC Wi-Fi technology such as 80MHz channel width, 256QAM frequency modulation and also Beamforming to focus the signal wherever the wireless clients are.
The TP-LINK RE580D incorporates a «RE» button which is basically a WPS button that allows us to synchronize with the main router easily without the need to enter passwords, once both devices are synchronized we can quickly start repeating the signal.
This top-of-the-range universal repeater incorporates a 1GHz dual-core Broadcom processor which will ensure high data transfers both via cable and Wi-Fi, without the CPU becoming a bottleneck. This equipment also incorporates a high-speed mode of the Wi-Fi network, which basically will allow us to connect to the router to receive data on one frequency band and send data on the other, in this way the speed is accelerated.
Finally, this AP incorporates 5 Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000 Mbps) for the LAN so we can connect our Smart TV, console and multimedia player in our living room to the universal repeater. The firmware incorporates high configurability and works with any Wi-Fi router or AP, although it is recommended that the router that we use be of the AC1900 class to take full advantage of the technical characteristics of this equipment.
We recommend visit the official website of the TP-LINK RE580D where you will find all the details about its technical specifications. You can buy it in stores at a price of around € 140, it will be a significant investment but we must bear in mind that we are facing one of the highest-end Wi-Fi repeaters on the market.
