Brand New – The TP-Link Archer C60, now with Multi-User MIMO

TP-Link, one of the world’s biggest providers of WLAN products, has just released their latest and most disruptive addition to the TP-Link range – the TP-Link Archer C60. This powerful unit comes with an array of top class features but has been capped at a price point that has never been seen before for a unit of the same caliber. The Archer C60 is certainly bound to draw a lot of attention.

Fast, Concurrent Dual Band Wi-Fi

The Archer C60 provides you with simultaneous dual band Wi-Fi connections.
2.4GHz band: Creates fast and stable Wi-Fi at speeds of up to 450Mbps, making it perfect for daily applications like sending emails, browsing the web or listening to music.
5GHz band: Provides speeds of up to 867Mbps for latency-sensitive entertainment so you can stream HD video, play online games and hold video chats all at the same time, without delay.

MU-MIMOTP-Link Archer C60

Most conventional routers are limited to sending and receiving data in one direction meaning that they can only speak to one device at a time. In the scenario where multiple devices are connected to your router, the unit will then distribute data to each device in a merry-go-round fashion. As a result of the router only being able to communicate with one device at a time, connection quality will decrease when the bandwidth is too low.

SU-MIMO (single user, multiple input, multiple output) was introduced to increase the capacity that each user is able to receive by sending and receiving multiple streams of data at the same time. This great innovation has been taken one step further by MU-MIMO (multi-user, multiple input, multiple output), also known as Next-Gen or AC Wave 2. MU-MIMO was specifically created to support environments where multiple users are trying to access the wireless network at the same time.

With MU-MIMO the Archer C60 is therefore able to distribute Wi-Fi connectivity in the most efficient way giving its user the best possible wireless experience available.

Other features include:

  • Arranged Coverage, Enhanced Stability

Archer C60’s innovative design includes five dual band high- performance antennas, three at 2.4GHz and two at 5GHz.  These have been arranged alternately to optimize the dual band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, providing a data transfer rate 3 times faster than 802.11n for each stream.

  • Easy Parental Control

Supervise children and staff with restricted internet access time and content. Use URL blocking to easily set up a blacklist or whitelist to allow or restrict the level of web access.

  • Guest Network Access

Make sharing easy while maintaining security and keeping your main network secure by creating a separate network for guests.

  • Easy Setup and Management

Set up time for Archer C60 is minutes thanks to its intuitive web interface. Discover the easiest way to access and manage your router through your smartphone with TP-LINK’s powerful app. Configuration is in the palm of your hands
