The CES Innovation Awards programme, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honouring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.

It has built-in mesh technology, easy app-based setup, and allows for full access to all three bands so that customers and connected devices, 6E or not, benefit from the system. The Linksys AXE8400 is fully certified with the Wi-Fi Alliance and FCC, ensuring that it meets the highest standards for security and safety so that consumers have added peace of mind when using any device on their home network.
