At the 2020 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020), D-Link launched the DWR-2010 5G NR Enhanced Gateway, which now supports 5G in the band below 6 GHz, while providing AX3000 Wi-Fi connectivity at the other end. Key specifications include downlink speeds of up to 4 Gbps (5G)/2 Gbps (4G LTE plus), 3x1Gb and 1×2.5Gb LAN ports, 1Gbps WAN ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, a SIM card slot and a voice service RJ-11 port.
D-Link also released two other products, the 5G Gateway (DWR-978) and the 5G NR Outdoor Unit (DWP-1020). The band support for the 5G Gateway (DWR-978) is similar to the DWR-2010 5G NR Enhanced Gateway, but the 5G downlink limit is 1 Gbps and the Wi-Fi connection is AC2600. It has 4 1Gb LAN ports and 1Gbps WAN ports, a USB 2.0 port and a SIM slot. In addition to supporting bands below 6 GHz, the 5G NR outdoor unit also supports mmWave. It also has an IP45 rating (waterproof) and can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 to 55 degrees Celsius. It can be powered by PoE, has a SIM card slot and has a 5 Gbps LAN port.
Overall, D-Link’s 5G products offer a wide range of options for service providers and 5G wireless home broadband. D-Link’s competitors, such as Netgear, also have a set of 5G products for the same market.
