Linksys EA7500 AC1900 MU-MIMO router now shipping
It seems that it’s router Thursday! The Linksys EA7500 is packing 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology which makes it ideal for supporting multiple connected devices through the home.
This type of support is particularly effective for heavy duty media streaming, such as with 4K TVs, and for families using numerous connected devices simultaneously.
The Next-Gen Max-Stream AC1900 can provide users with combined speeds up to 1.9 Gbps and the range they need to connect all their devices in the home at the same time. Also included is Smart Wi-Fi technology which makes it easy to set up and control your home Wi-Fi from anywhere using the Smart Wi-Fi app on your mobile device.
A single stream of 4K content takes a minimum of 20 Mbps to maintain a consistent stream, and when you combine that with multiple streams plus normal Wi-Fi use from gaming, internet surfing, IoT connectivity and music streaming, it adds up fast. Max-Stream will enable multiple streams of Wi-Fi to occur so users can have the ultimate 4K and networking experience.”
