D-Link is the leader in Draft 802.11n Wi-Fi product shipments worldwide, showing significant growth in Q4 2007 and surpassing nearest competitors Linksys and Belkin, according to leading analyst firm In-Stat.

"D-Link has emerged as the leader in shipping Draft 802.11n products, a clear indication that the market is confident with the technology that it has to offer," said Norm Bogen, director of networking with In-Stat, a leading research firm serving the computer and networking industries. "Despite the fact that 802.11n is still in the draft phase, the market has clearly adopted the technology as sales worldwide are increasing steadily with more and more users enjoying the increased speeds and range that the Draft 11n products deliver to home and small business networks."
