DIR-878 FrontBoth the DIR-878 EXO AC1900 and DIR-882 EXO AC2600 Wi-Fi Gigabit Routers come with Multiple-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) with Advanced AC SmartBeam.

DIR-882MU-MIMO technology allows the routers to send and receive large amounts of data to and from devices simultaneously. This equates to increased throughput and application responsiveness.

Additionally, Advanced AC SmartBeam steers the wireless signal to where it is needed to significantly improve wireless range.

DIR-882 BackFurthermore, thanks to innovative 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, both routers also offer combined wireless speeds of up to 1.9 Gbps and 2.533 Gbps respectively.

So what?

This may all be very interesting, or not, but why should you care? Well, the increasing number of connected devices within a modern home, combined with the increasing prevalence of 4K streamed media, means that it is essential that a home’s network speed and bandwidth is able to meet these requirements.

The routers’ innovative technology therefore enables consumers to stream video in 4K, enjoy seamless online gaming, transfer large files and browse the internet with a greater number of devices simultaneously and seamlessly.
