Home networking vendor TP-LINK has partnered with Currys & PC World to bring wireless connectivity products to UK stores.
TP-LINK’s routers, powerline adapters and range extenders are now available online and across 500 of the Dixons Retail stores.
Some of the TP-LINK powerline range available from Currys & PC World include the TL-PA4010KIT and the TL-WPA281KIT, which are designed to extend the internet connection to every room of the house over existing electrical circuitry.
Other new products include the Portable Battery Powered 3G/4G Wireless N Router TL-MR3040 and the 300Mbps Universal WiFi Range Extender TL-WA850RE, which boosts the strength and range of an existing WiFi signal to previously unreachable or hard-to-wire areas.
They also function as wireless adapters to connect wired devices like Blu-ray players, games consoles, DVRs and internet TVs.
Currys & PC World stores will feature TP-LINK powerline adapters within their main TV sections.
Syed Kazmi, Category Manager for Networking at Currys & PC World, said: “We see TP-LINK’s products as must-haves for the connected home. By making use of the latest wireless technologies, families will be able to enjoy their gadgets to the fullest, and movie or game nights won’t get interrupted by poor Wi-Fi connectivity.”
Eric Wang, Country Manager of TP-LINK UK Ltd, added: “The growing popularity of smart TVs and second screen applications such as the X-Factor voting app highlight the need for the latest connectivity technologies. Our routers, powerline adapters and range extenders enable Currys & PC World customers to make the most of their smart TV, tablet and other wireless devices through a reliable, high-speed internet connection.”
