Linksys Expands MAX-STREAM Mesh Router Portfolio With Its Most Affordable WiFi 6 Solution
Drives Evolution of Mesh Routers With Latest Generation WiFi – WiFi 6 (802.11AX) Technology
LOS ANGELES – June 16, 2020 – Linksys, the connected home division within the Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) (HK: 6088) entity, today announces the newest addition to its WiFi 6 product portfolio – the Linksys MAX-STREAM AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR7350), delivering whole-home mesh technology, faster speeds, greater coverage and all the benefits of WiFi 6 at an affordable price.
WiFi 6 also known as “AX WiFi" or "802.11ax WiFi” is the latest generation of WiFi reshaping the way routers handle the increasing number of connected devices in the home. With widespread adoption in newer client devices (iPhone SE, iPad Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10, etc.), WiFi 6 routers such as the MAX-STREAM AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR7350) ensure future-ready solutions for consumers who want the best speeds, range and overall performance. WiFi 6 is backwards compatible with current and previous generation devices (WiFi 5, WiFi 4, and earlier WiFi standards) and operates at a higher capacity to meet increasing bandwidth demand, therefore providing seamless, super-fast WiFi in the farthest corners of the home for all connected devices.
The MAX-STREAM AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR7350) follows the MAX-STREAM Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR9600) announced earlier this year, offering the latest WiFi standard and signature Linksys Intelligent Mesh™ Technology for a fast, reliable and seamlessly expandable home WiFi network.
