WD unveils 802.11ac wireless router, bridge


WD has unveiled the My Net AC1300 HD Dual-Band Router (pictured) and My Net AC Bridge as the latest additions to its My Net family of HD dual-band routers.

These products combine 802.11ac wireless technology with WD's exclusive FasTrack technology for automatically prioritizing high-bandwidth entertainment services like Netflix, YouTube, online games and Skype, to provide maximum streaming performance inside the home, says Scott Vouri, general manager for WD's connected life solutions group.

A leading product testing and analysis organization, The Tolly Group, conducted performance testing of the My Net AC1300 router and My Net Bridge amongst comparable products on the market today. Vouri says that results show that the My Net AC1300 router is faster than leading competitive products averaged across ranges of 30 to 75 feet, demonstrating the strongest performance in providing stable wireless speeds over long distances, and cutting out buffering and lag times to provide a smooth HD entertainment streaming experience throughout the home.

WD's exclusive FasTrack prioritization technology and next-generation AC Wi-Fi work together in the My Net AC1300 router to deliver crystal-clear high-definition streaming content to gaming consoles, media players, smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, computers and other Wi-Fi connected devices at speeds up to three times faster and with more reliable coverage, than wireless-N Wi-Fi, Vouri says.

With dual-band performance up to 450 + 1300 Megabits per second (Mbps) and FasTrack technology, the My Net AC1300 features 802.11n wireless technology on the 2.4GHz band and 802.11ac wireless technology on the 5GHz band. Both bands work simultaneously to significantly reduce streaming delays and interference with the multitude of Wi-Fi devices connected to the network.

My Net AC1300 includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports for wired devices such as media players or network attached storage, as well as two USB 2.0 ports to add external storage such as My Book or My Passport hard drives, shared printers and scanners. Additionally, My Net AC1300 is Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) certified for detection and connection of Wi-Fi devices.

With the new My Net AC Bridge, customers can convert up to four devices like a smart TV, game console, Blu-ray disc player and media player from wired-Ethernet to wireless and get AC Wi-Fi speeds for the ultimate HD entertainment experience. This reduces the amount of network cabling needed in the home without sacrificing the throughput Ethernet provides, Vouri says.


My Net AC1300 Router and My Net AC Bridge are available now at select U.S. retailers and online at wdstore.com . The manufacturer's suggested retail price is US$189.99 USD for My Net AC1300 and $149.99 for My Net AC Bridge.
