D-Link has announced the launch of its all-new Exo Smart Mesh WiFi Router series; a powerful addition to D-Link’s portfolio of connection solutions for the home. The series comprises of the AC1900 (DIR-1960) and AC2600 (DIR-2660). D-Link’s next-generation routers offer high-performance WiFi connectivity combined with McAfee protection. 

The routers all feature a five-year McAfee Secure Home Platform subscription; protecting every device on a connected home network by blocking suspicious connections and access to malicious content. Comprehensive parental controls prevent access to inappropriate content and can be used to set up WiFi schedules. The routers also come with a two-year subscription to McAfee LiveSafe, which allows antivirus software to be installed on an unlimited number of computers, tablets and smartphones.

McAfee Secure Home Platform includes:

  • Malicious site blocking.
  • Connection anomaly and botnet detection
  • Advanced network controls to hide your devices from hackers.
  • Automatically disconnect selected devices when you are away from home.
  • Comprehensive parental control with customisable content filtering, profiles and WiFi scheduling.

The new routers feature best in class 802.11ac Wave 2 allowing for dual-band and tri-band combined wireless speeds of up to 1,900 Mbps, 2,533 Mbps and 3,000 Mbps. For even wider coverage, simply add compatible D-Link WiFi Mesh extenders to create a seamless, self-optimising, mesh wireless network that allows you to move around without disconnection.

Kevin Wen, President at D-Link Europe said: “People want internet access that is as safe and secure, as it is fast and reliable. With McAfee protection, our new Exo routers provide enhanced cyber security for the home network as well as on-the-go protection when users are away from the home.”
