Linksys has developed a new range of Velop Mesh routers, which offer faster internet, wider range, and better connectivity. The company claims that the device can offer connection to around 50 devices, which is overwhelming for everybody because there hasn’t been a device that can accommodate so many devices at a time. Let’s delve into the details of this new router by Linksys and how it will change the way the internet is accessed in the future.
The Linksys introduced the new generation of router mesh Velop. The device stands out for being compatible with the Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity standard, launched in September by the Wi-Fi Alliance. New wireless technology is faster and ensures support for more connected devices simultaneously. According to the manufacturer, the product can manage up to 50 devices at a time without dropping the baud rate. Most mesh routers, like the Nest Wi-Fi, Google Wi-Fi, and Eero, Netgear Orbi are still the Wi-Fi 5 type and do not offer this advantage.
The product hits stores in the United States on November 11 but is already pre-sold for $ 399 per unit. In buying the pair, the consumer pays $699 at the current price and without taxes.
In tower form and available only in white, the Linksys Velop promises coverage of approximately 278 square meters with constant signal. Like other mesh devices, it is always up to date and easy to install. the, it can work in conjunction with more units to increase the coverage area.
The device also features Gigabit Ethernet port for high speed wired connection, plus USB 3.0 input for connecting hard drives. promises to be fast with the help of a 2.2 GHz octa-core processor capable of delivering a maximum speed of 5.3 Gbps that exceeds current data transmission limits.
According to Linksys, the model is up to four times the speed of the previous generation, Wi-Fi 5 compatible. Still, units of both versions can be combined into a single mesh system to expand Internet coverage in a home.
It will be interesting how people respond to these routers because the company has kept a very high price on the routers, which may force many people to reconsider their decision whether they should buy the new Velop or not. The company instead gives an explanation that buying this router pack is a one-time investment, so users just have to invest the money once and they can enjoy lightning-fast internet for years. Moreover, the ability of the router to accommodate up to 50 devices eliminate the inclusion of any other router in the premises, as Velop routers will take care of everything.
