May 12, 2016

New products demoed during DISTREE.

At the recently concluded DISTREE Middle East, Linksys has just demoed its new products using the new MU-MIMO technology. MU-MIMO technology – Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output lets users stream video up to 4K on multiple devices without any hassles.

“The demands we make of the internet are growing exponentially, and that has placed enormous pressure on the technology people are using to access online content such as 4K high-definition video streaming,” said Amanulla Khan, Managing Director, Linksys, Middle East, Turkey & Africa.

Some of the new products showcased during the event include the company’s latest MAX-STREAM series, including the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC5400 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router with MU-MIMO (EA9500) routers one of the most powerful tri-band routers on the market, which delivers premium business-grade connectivity to the home.

Routers are complemented by the first range extender with next-generation AC Wave 2 technology – MU-MIMO, the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1900+ MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE7000) which provides greater performance with seamless roaming, eliminating Wi-Fi blackspots. Also launching is the first MU-MIMO enabled USB adapter the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC600 USB MU-MIMO Adapter (WUSB6100M) that ensure a best-in-class experience at the end point in the networking chain.

These new feature may be confusing, but Linksys is working with it channel partners so that it can correctly inform customers about the benefits of these new devices. This includes a ‘Wi-Fi Clinic’ concept recently launched through Carrefour.
