Linksys Launches Wi-Fi 6 Portfolio to Meet Consumers’ Demands 
February 28, 2022 News


Linksys, a global leader in wireless networking products, announced last week the availability of various Wi-Fi 6 mesh systems and routers with built-in Linksys Intelligent Mesh™ technology. Not only are they designed to meet consumers’ demanding wireless connectivity needs, they are also interoperable with compatible Linksys routers to form a powerful mesh network. This means that they can be added to existing set ups as extra nodes to expand and boost the home Wi-Fi coverage.

“91.7% of Malaysian households have access to the Internet and internet usage among Malaysians has increased significantly to 89.6% during the COVID-19 pandemic. With more people working from home and attending school online, it is more important now than ever for Linksys to provide innovative solutions to boost home networks for uninterrupted and simultaneous use,” said Kingsley Chan, Business Development Director at Linksys. “We are thrilled to launch our Wi-Fi 6 portfolio that is designed to address consumers’ needs and provide all of the heavy Wi-Fi lifting at an affordable price.”

“Linksys is known to constantly innovate and create future-ready wireless technologies for consumers,” said Yoon Kam Fei, Vice President and Country General Manager at Tec D Distribution Malaysia. “As the sole distributor of Linksys Wi-Fi 6 routers, we are excited to be offering our customers the highly rated products which will improve their home network experience greatly.”

Designed to deliver fast and reliable connectivity, Linksys Atlas Pro 6 capitalises on the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard to deliver gigabit speeds of up to 5.4 Gbps with 6-stream connectivity to every corner of the home. The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard enables users to access the 160 MHz bandwidth—the least-congested channels available on the 5GHz band—which offers incredibly fast connectivity. The faster peak data rates allow work-from-home, online learning, streaming and gaming devices to operate simultaneously without diminished bandwidth—more than 30 devices with coverage up to 2,700 square feet per node.

Velop AX5300 Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6 System (1-pack and 2-pack options)
The Velop AX5300 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh system is engineered with next-generation orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) technology, which decreases latency in high-density environments to deliver high speed Wi-Fi to multiple devices simultaneously. The router’s MU-MIMO technology allows downloads and uploads simultaneously, making it the ideal system for instantaneous and uninterrupted use across all devices. The router covers 3,000 square feet per node and is designed to manage the demands of more than 50 devices on the same bandwidth. What’s more, the Velop AX5300 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh system comes with BSS technology, which eliminates interference from nearby networks so that users can be assured of the strongest, clearest signal for their devices.
