D-Link unveils high-speed and mesh options for its router lineup
From Engadget - January 8, 2018

D-Link's Ultra Wi-Fi line features the dual-band AX6000 gets speeds up to 6,000 Mbps while the tri-band AX11000 boasts 11,000 Mbps. Sure, this could be useful for a house full of active media streamers, but these routers are intended for users intending to perform multiple bandwidth-draining activities simultaneously, like file sharing and high-performance gaming. Both include one 2.5 Gbps WAN port and four Gigabit LAN ports and support 4x4 MU-MIMO. D-Link did not announce pricing, but both models will be available in the second half of 2018.

The Covr line, on the other hand, supports a scalable mesh WiFi network. The higher-end $320 tri-band model, out in Q2 2018, comes with two routers amplified to cover up to 6,000 sq. ft. of space, and includes built-in compatibility for Amazon's Alexa. The dual-band model, on the other hand, includes three pods to cover 5,000 sq. ft. and will retail for $250, arriving in Q1 2018.
