November 25, 2013 – Linksys introduced its latest flagship model in the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router line-up: the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1900 EA6900. Offering speeds of up to 600Mbps to Wireless-N clients and up to 1300Mbps to Wireless-AC clients, the new router is packed with smart features and top-of-class performance, sporting cutting edge technologies to bring consumers the fastest Linksys Wireless-AC Router to date.
The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1900 EA6900 also sees the re-introduction of three external and removable dipole antennae, with top-of-class performance, giving consumers maximum flexibility in steering the signal to enhance network range and stability, the inclusion of external antennae also allow discerning users to swap out the antennae with other types of personal preference. (yay! I still prefer routers with antennae, makes it so much easier to gauge the direction)
Maintaining the sleek and minimal design aesthetic of the EA series of routers, the EA6900 runs on a powerful 800Mhz dual-core processor for maximum performance, sporting USB3.0 connectivity to easily share storage media across the home network. Combining the best technologies available to the home networking consumer today, the EA6900 promises seamless connectivity not only with the Internet, but also amongst the increasing number of network-enabled devices in the market.
Delivering a simple and intuitive experience, the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1900 EA6900 can be installed without the need for a CD. Consumers can instead connect to the router through an Internet browser via PCs or smart devices, and follow the simple set-up wizard to complete installation. Users can also opt to create a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi account for easy control of the home network, including settings, managing their connected devices and Smart Wi-Fi tools such as parental controls and guest access to the home network.
The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi platform offers a complete and complementary ecosystem to Linksys consumers by creating and supporting a comprehensive range of tools and mobile applications (developed by Linksys and third party developers through the Linksys App Developer programme) that deliver effortless control and greater connectivity over home networks anytime and anywhere.
