Edimax, a major Taiwanese wireless networking manufacturer, is shipping the BR-6475nD, Simultaneous Dual-Band Gigabit Wireless Router in North and South America.

Edimax is going against the latest designer trend of using internal PCB (Printed Circuit Board) antenna as in many other manufacturers’ routers. By using a pair of external and detachable 3 dBi antenna, the BR-6475nD has much greater gain as compared to the ones with PCB antenna. Even though it is considered old fashioned, Edimax is dedicated to performance over style.

Wireless networking has enhanced modern lives, and people won’t dream of being without it. Initially, the 2.4MHz wireless channel was used primarily by PCs and Laptops. Even then, the wireless performance was slowed down by interferences from neighboring networks, microwave ovens, …etc. Recently, there are more and more new wireless devices such as smartphones, Xboxes, PS3s, ….IP TVs added to the mix, and they definitely increase the total wireless bandwidth requirements. Edimax developed the simultaneous dual-band router to address this problem. The BR-6475nD actually provides 2 radios in a single unit, one at 2.4Ghz and the other at 5 GHz. Now, the user can divide up the network based on usage and dedicates the new 5 GHz channel for high data rate applications such a gaming, network storage, and multimedia streaming (IP-TV or Netflix) while at the same time uses the 2.4 Ghz band for normal Internet usage. This is similar to have a multi-lane wireless data highway as compared to a single data lane.

Edimax benefits from the latest 3rd generation wireless chipset technology such as the single chip for 2.4 GHz as well as the integrated 500 MHz single chip router for 5 GHz and for the Gigabit Interface. The router design is optimized for reduced chip count, low energy consumption and minimal heat generation, which ensures maximum durability and affordability.

“We provide real-world features that are actually being used and have concrete benefits,” said Richard Hung, the General Manager of Edimax Computer. “The users can now make a single purchase of the BR-6475nD that is future-proof. If they are doing gaming, network storage backup or multimedia streaming like Netflix, then they should definitely get it!”
