D-Link Welcomes the Improvements in Windows 7

D-Link Middle East has welcomed the improvements to network compatibility with the release of Windows 7, a new operating system from Microsoft. The company has been one of the Tier One partners in the launch of Windows 7.

To make sure that all of its products can be installed and operate with maximum functionality in a Windows 7-based PC-networked environment, D-Link (News - Alert) says the company has conducted detailed early testing procedures of the program. The company states that with the its networking devices and Windows 7, the vision to provide access to the users' digital world - from anywhere, anytime can be realized.

Microsoft’s (News - Alert) new operating system, Windows 7, was developed based on user feedbacks, claims Microsoft. Accordingly, the company has made everyday tasks easier and faster. According to Microsoft, Windows 7 starts up, shuts down, resumes from standby, and responds faster than its previous operating systems.

Windows 7 introduces new media sharing features that make a conventional PC a hub for experiencing audio, video, and pictures throughout the home. This means when a user sets up a homegroup or stream media from Windows Media Player, he can enjoy the music, pictures, and videos on other computers running Windows 7 and other devices in his home.

“One of the most important innovations that we're seeing in Windows 7 is the ability for our network devices to be recognized and to install automatically,” said Harrison Albert, Regional Sales Director at D-Link Middle East. “Windows 7 provides us with a platform and resources to guarantee that D-Link products are easy- to-use, out of the box. This will completely change the way users relate to their D-Link networking products.”

D-Link recently began shipping the easy-to-use HD MediaBridge Starter Kit (DXN-221) that taps into existing coaxial wiring throughout the home, delivering fast, secure and stable connections for extending a home network to devices at the entertainment system and to multiple rooms without interrupting cable service. Users can easily connect one of the included D-Link HD MediaBridge Adapters to their existing home network router.
