TP-LINK Launches Tether App for Network Management on Android and iOS Devices TP-LINK Tether enables mobile and tablet users on Android or iOS to better utilize their network resources in a more convenient and real time environment

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced the launch of its Tether network management app, intended to provide the easiest way to access, manage and share a TP-LINK router's resources on iOS and Android devices. From setup, to parental control, to media sharing, Tether provides a simple, intuitive user interface to see what the status of the router is, who's online and what their privileges are. Unique to Tether, from PC-based web management tools, is its DLNA® compatibility allowing users to stream media from a flash disk connected to their router onto their client devices.

The app is compatible with iPhones, iPod Touch and iPad devices running iOS 5.1 or later as well as Android devices running Gingerbread 2.3.3 or later, and is now available on Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store. Two TP-LINK routers currently support the Tether app, while legacy devices will be given support through the coming firmware updates made available on the TP-LINK corporate website.

Tether is intended to work with TP-LINK routers right out of the box, allowing users to setup and manage their networks from start to finish in an intuitive, easy-to-use user interface. Users can set administrators and manage other client devices on the network, making it easy for parents or network admins to monitor kids or staff online behavior, setting schedules for internet access and providing a 'safe list' of websites that can be accessed via a certain device.

The app also lets admins see who is accessing the network in real time and prevent access from unknown users or bandwidth hogs.

Perhaps the most sought-after feature of the Tether app is its DLNA® functions, allowing users to access content from USB flash or hard drives connected to their routers and stream that content to their iOS and Android devices, providing flexible access to media, without taking up space on their client devices.
