WiFi coverage around the home can be a problem sometimes, and so a number of manufacturers came up with a mesh network system, allowing users to fill their home with WiFi easily.
Today Linksys unveiled their own solution to this, called the Linksys Velop, it is a set of Tri-Band 2×2 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO routers, allowing each Velop to be capable of delivering a combined speed of 2,200 Mbps.
The system will also support Amazon’s Alexa system, allowing you to turn guest access WiFi on or off with your voice.
Users will be able to setup and mesh together Velop routers via the Linksys app on iOS and Android, from which they can change the settings of the routers, as well as monitor their network easily. That said, Linksys says that Velop can do a lot of the work itself, dynamically adjusting itself for the best WiFi speeds.
To set it up, you plug in the cables in the bottom and load up the app.
Linksys will be selling the Velop routers individually for $200, or in a pack of two for $350m or in a pack of three for $500.
