TRENDnet released news of its upcoming draft 802.11ac products and new cloud IP cams at Computex.
The TEW-812DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router and TEW-800MB AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Media Bridge will be TRENDnet’s late entries into the draft 802.11ac push when they ship in November.
Specs are similar to other draft 802.11ac routers and bridges that have been announced or are currently shipping: simultaneous dual-band; Gigabit ports; 450 Mbps maximum link rate on 2.4 GHz and 1300 maximum link rate on 5 GHz; USB 2.0 port for drive sharing. The bridge lacks a WAN port but has four switched Gigabit Ethernet ports. MSRPs will be $179.99 for the router and an aggressive $129.99 for the bridge.
TRENDnet also added more IP cameras, to the twelve it announced at CES. The four new models are basically "cloud" versions of some of the new lineup. Following a model similar to D-Link’s DCS cloud-based IP cameras, the new TRENDnet cams feature browser-based viewing and admin via a free TRENDnet hosted cloud portal. An iOS app will also be available for iPhone viewing.
The new models all support 640 x 480 (VGA) video at up to 20 frames per second (fps) and both 10/100 Ethernet and 802.11bgn wireless network connectivity. Two models include 25 foot IR illumination and two have remote 340° pan and 115° tilt abilities. All are scheduled to start shipping this September.

- TV-IP751WC Wireless N Cloud Camera – $119.99
- TV-IP751WIC Wireless N Day / Night Cloud Camera – $139.99
