At CES this week TP-Link unveiled the first consumer router which has the brand new 802.11 standard running at a whopping 60Ghz, the conventional bands used in the hoe environment are 2.4GHz and 5GHz maxing out at around 1,300mbps using 802.11ac. This new standard unveiled by the WiFI Alliance back in 2014 runs at a much higher 60GHz and supports around 7.2Gbps at short distances, basically in the same room with the only way to take advantage of that speed is to have a AP in each room, or it’ll only work in the same room as the router.

The TP-Link Talon AD7200 (pictured) can achieve speeds of up to 7.2Gbps by using all three frequencies together, 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 60GHz as well as backward compatibility for the older WiFi standards 802.11a, b, g, n and ac. The Talon AD7200 will be out later this year but TP-Link hasn’t announced any pricing as of yet.
