Many are yet to create the jump to Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) ac and while they weren’t looking TP-Link unveiled the world's first 802.11ad router. It beams out a whopping 4,600Mbps of network connectivity over the 57GHz-66Giga Hertz (GHz) range (read that again – not five Giga Hertz (GHz) like ac routers, fifty to sixty GHz).

The TP-Link Talon AD7200 can combine multiple bands to push the max throughput to 7,200Mbps if you add up the 2.4GHz, 5Giga Hertz (GHz) and 60Giga Hertz (GHz) bands. That's as quick as an 8-band 802.11ac transmission and 11 times faster than an 802.11n connection.

Considering the Talon has eight antennas in total (each with its own amplifier) I doubt any pocketable device will manage to capture all those simultaneously.

Anyway, you acquire four gigabit Ethernet ports and two Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 ports for those devices that still require a copper wire. Keep in mind that 60Giga Hertz (GHz) signals can't pass through walls so you acquire the ad super speed only in the same room as the router.

TP-Link hasn’t announce a price for the Talon AD7200, but it's coming out in early 2016.
