At IFA 2013 this month Linksys introduced a new model to their router line-up in the form of the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi AC1900 Router. It offers speeds up to 600Mbps to Wireless-N devices and up to 1,300Mbps to Wireless-AC devices.
“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 Mohammad Meraj Hoda, VP Linksys International, 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.”
The new lineup of Linksys routers are also equipped with ‘beamforming’ technology to offer fast wireless speeds—up to three times the speed of Wireless-N, increased range and backward compatibility with existing wireless devices. The routers can be installed from most tablets, smartphones or from PC browsers, making installation as simple and hassle-free as possible.
