TP-LINK today announced Talon AD7200 at the CES 2016, which becomes the first router in the world based on 802.11ad wireless technology. It delivers speeds of up to 4.6Gbps on 60GHz bands and channels at 60GHz. It uses 802.11ad and 11ac MU-MIMO solutions from Qualcomm Atheros, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.
