EDIMAX Technology, a leading provider of advanced network communication products, announced the launch of the industry-leading EW-7822UAC wireless USB adapter, setting a new global standard for Wi-Fi adapters with a device that is the first and fastest of its kind in the world. USB 3.0 support means that next generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi speeds can truly be realized, enabling consumers to upgrade their existing PC or laptop’s capability to run at the fastest available Wi-Fi speeds. A new benchmark in wireless networking – the EW-7822UAC represents Edimax’s continued commitment to advancing and accelerating consumer Wi-Fi technology, and is the first step towards an 802.11ac “5G” Wi-Fi future.
802.11ac Truly Realized with USB 3.0
The EW-7822UAC supports USB 3.0, the newest specification of the USB standard which specifies a maximum data transmission speed of 5Gbps. Approximately 10 times faster than the current USB 2.0 standard which specifies a maximum speed of 480Mbps, USB 3.0 is undoubtedly the future of USB connectivity and is set to be universally adopted across the technology industry. In other 802.ac adapters, data rates can be limited by USB 2.0 technology – the Edimax EW-7822UAC though presents USB 3.0 with blistering speeds for consumers to enjoy the fast, reliable Wi-Fi that their devices demand.
World’s First and Fastest
802.11ac is the next generation of Wi-Fi standard which delivers speeds of up to 867Mbps at 5GHz – almost three times faster than 802.11n. The EW-7822UAC supports the draft 802.11ac standard and is the first adapter to offer 802.11ac speeds together with USB 3.0 connectivity, making the EW-7822UAC USB dual-band 802.11ac adapter the fastest USB adapter in the world. Upgrade existing PCs and laptops to stream video, music or data at super high speeds of up to 867Mbps with the fastest USB adapter in the world.
Dual-band connectivity delivers better performance and provides greater flexibility for consumers and their Wi-Fi devices. The 2.4GHz frequency band is ideal for routine web browsing while the 5Ghz frequency band, with less interference and more channels, is better suited to data-intensive applications such as video streaming and online gaming. The EW-7822UAC provides dual-band connectivity for the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band giving users freedom to benefit from the best of both worlds.
