Linksys today announced two new 802.11ac Tri-Band MU-MIMO Routers to its Max Stream product series - the EA8300 and EA9300.
Both routers offer working MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple Output), the next generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, which helps improve overall performance and efficiency of a Wi-Fi network while providing dedicated bandwidth to MU-MIMO capable client devices as if they have their own dedicated router.
Both routers feature Seamless Roaming technology, which brings an enterprise-level Wi-Fi experience into the home. This technology helps enable client devices to roam around the home always connected to the optimal access point, either router or range extender seamlessly without having to manually connect or lose connection. Seamless roaming works much the same way devices work in an office environment where users can move room to room, floor to floor always staying connected to the office Wi-Fi connection.
The Linksys EA8300 is an AC2200 Tri-Band MU-MIMO router, providing speeds up to 2.2Gbps (867 Mbps 5Ghz + 867 Mbps 5 GHz + 400 Mbps 2.4 GHz). Four high performance antennas and amplifiers deliver the best coverage and range. The router works with Amazon Alexa for a voice-activated experience.
The Linksys EA9300 is an AC4000 Tri-Band MU-MIMO router, providing speeds up to 4Gbps (1625 + 1625 + 750 Mbps). Airtime fairness enables faster devices to transmit at faster speeds while the slower device will not impede the speed of Wi-Fi network.
Planned for availability in the spring, the EA8300 will cost $199.99, and the EA9300 - $299.99.
