Linksys introduced its new top model in the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router line-up: the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi AC1900 Router. It offers speeds up to 600 Mbps to Wireless-N clients and up to 1300 Mbps to Wireless-AC clients. Together with a new top end model Linksys is also bringing an entry level AC-router and an AC USB-adapter to upgrade notebooks or desktop computers to the latest standard.
"Trends like the increase in connected devices in the home and the rise of on demand video services, enabling consumers to consume video on virtually any screen, puts a more critical demand on the home network," said Mike Chen, Senior Director Home Networking at Belkin. "Our products are not only extremely fast, they are also easy to install and control through the innovative Linksys Smart Wi-Fi platform. With your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account and App you can get access anywhere and anytime to media stored on a connected USB storage device or change settings of the router - all from the palm of your hand."
Smarter Routers for Smart Devices With more smart devices entering the home, consumers need Wi-Fi that is powerful, easy to use and enables them to get to their media files - wherever they are. The new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers are equipped with the latest 802.11ac technology, and beamforming technology offering fast wireless speeds-up to three times the speed of Wireless-N*, increased range and backward compatibility with existing wireless devices.
Beamforming technology helps to deliver better network range and faster Wi-Fi speeds in the home. Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers with beamforming technology are designed to precisely adjust, steer and monitor the direction and shape of the Wi-Fi signals for better performance.
The new Smart Wi-Fi Routers can be installed from most tablets, smartphones or from PC browsers. Consumers simply connect to the router with their device then follow the simple set-up wizard to complete installation. An optional Linksys Smart Wi-Fi account can be created for easy control of the home network, including settings, connected devices and Smart Wi-Fi tools on virtually any device, anytime, anywhere.
