Cisco introduces new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers with app enabled capabilities

Cisco recently unveiled a new line of Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers with app enabled capabilities for consumers to power and enjoy their connected homes of today and tomorrow.

The three new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers scheduled to be available in the Middle East in May will offer exceptional wireless performance and maximum throughput, as well as support for Cisco Connect Cloud, the next generation of Cisco Connect software, which provides simple anytime, anywhere management of multiple home networks, the company said.

Cisco also announced it is working with top device manufacturers to simplify their networked products, (such as TVs, entertainment devices and home appliances) enabling new consumer experiences in the future.

“The proliferation of wireless devices and the explosion of video streaming have redefined the importance of the home network. Today’s connected consumer has high expectations for reliability, simplicity, and software and apps that grow with them over time,” said Brett Wingo, VP and GM, Cisco Home Networking.  “Our new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers are game-changing products that put intelligence into the home network so consumers have a platform that makes it easy to manage and optimise their devices, and enjoy apps that deliver great new experiences.”

The new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, (the EA Series: EA4500, EA3500 and EA2700), deliver the latest home Wi-Fi technology and offer a range of prices and performance for active online homes − easily handling everything from streaming HD video and multiplayer gaming to downloading large files, adding storage or printers, and connecting multiple devices, Cisco said. These advanced wireless capabilities are timely considering that globally there will be 15 billion networked devices in 2015, up from 7 billion in 2010, it was reported. Home networks will need to support an increasing number of devices added to the home, the bandwidth required to run all the devices, and the ability to easily and more securely add and manage these devices, representatives said.

In addition, the new Linksys EA-Series is now app enabled, to provide consumers with all-new, anytime and anywhere experiences and solutions in areas such as home control, entertainment and protection, Cisco added
