D-Link DIR-X1560

details: EXO AX1500 Wi-Fi 6 Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2020-04-16
updated: 2020-05-07
Experience up to AX1500 speeds while 1024-QAM boosts throughput to devices by up to 25% with 80 MHz contiguous channel width giving even more bandwidth. Up to 4 simultaneous streams let you enjoy faster, more enjoyable 4K streaming, online gaming and more. For wired devices, 4 Gigabit LAN ports give you faster wired connectivity whenever you wish, and a Gigabit WAN port is ready to handle high-speed broadband connections.

The DIR-X1560 uses Wi-Fi 6's Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology. Small data packets destined for multiple devices are transmitted together and never have to queue up again.

MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously. With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X1560 leverages OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better efficiency of upstream AND downstream transmissions, unlike previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only operate in downstream transmissions. This combination increases capacity, coverage and performance especially in ultra-high-density environments.

High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X1560 to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi and focus a stronger signal in the direction of your devices to ensure a stronger, faster and more reliable Wi-Fi experience. Meanwhile a long OFDM symbol ensures even greater Wi-Fi range, especially outside the home.

Target Wake Time (TWT) helps reduce battery consumption for connected devices by communicating with them and deciding when and how often the device requires data transfers. TWT increases the device's sleep time, therefore cleverly conserving energy and helping save battery life.

Firmware upgrades can be a pain, but with the DIR-X1560, they are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won't even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X1560's Dual Image functionality saves a recovery image as a backup before an upgrade. So, in the unlikely event an upgrade fails, the system has your pre-existing configuration to fall back on.

The DIR-X1560's VPN Wizard lets you configure LAN-to-LAN and remote access VPN connections while its built-in passthrough feature also allows any devices connected to the router to establish outbound VPN connections.
