TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Editors note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

TP-LINK Canada Inc. today announced the power wall-mountable Universal range extender: the TP-LINK® RE200 AC750 Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender. The sleek miniature device is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network.

The next-gen 802.11ac wireless range extender is designed to work with any Wi-Fi router and is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n and 802.11ac devices. Users can now expand the total range of their 11ac networks and enjoy 802.11ac speeds of up to 750Mbps. The TP-LINK RE200 offers simultaneous throughput of up to 300Mbps for 2.4GHz networks and an additional 433Mbps wireless transfer rate at 5GHz.

The new range extender includes advanced 64/128/152-bit WEP, WPA-PSK/ WPA2-PSK encryptions to protect networks from potential security threats.

Easy Set-Up and Flexible Deployment

Users can readily deploy the device within range of an existing wireless network: simply press the WPS button on the main router and the Range Extender button on the RE200, and within 2 minutes a network connection is established. Login credentials are retained internally after initial setup, allowing users to relocate the device for optimal network coverage.

Additionally, the built-in Ethernet port allows the Range Extender to function as a dual-band wireless adapter to connect wired devices, including TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles, and Blu-ray® players. At the same time, the device can share the wireless network with mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend.
