FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. -- D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced a free upgrade for its best-selling network attached storage (NAS) device to enable BitTorrent file downloads and uploads independent of a PC.

Recognized by BitTorrent, Inc., provider of the global standard technology for high-quality content delivery on the Internet, the D-Link(R) DNS-323 two-Bay Network Storage Enclosure now includes the latest BitTorrent Software Development Kit (SDK), making it possible for consumers to access, store and share large amounts of media content through the Internet, without the need for a PC to be turned on or connected. The D-Link storage device connects directly to a home network and acts as a media hub for BitTorrent-enabled content.

Through the BitTorrent Device Partners technology licensing and certification program, BitTorrent has licensed the D-Link DNS-323 and certified the award-winning D-Link Xtreme N(TM) 802.11n Wi-Fi router (DIR-655). Consumers can use the products with confidence to manage BitTorrent multimedia content over their high-speed Internet connections.

"We recognize the benefits BitTorrent technology brings to its global user base and are pleased to be able to add that functionality to our products," said A.J. Wang, chief technical officer, D-Link. "By integrating the latest BitTorrent SDK into our NAS devices and ensuring our routers are BitTorrent-certified, we provide our customers with the most highly optimized BitTorrent implementation for connected devices and an efficient way to control and access their NAS device via an intuitive Web interface."
