Belkin-owned consumer network specialist Linksys today announced the availability of the latest additions to its Smart Wi-Fi portfolio with the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1200, Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1600 and Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1750.

According to Linksys, the new Smart Wi-Fi routers can be installed from virtually any device through browser-based set-up and with Linksys SimpleTap, consumers can easily connect new devices to the home network through a variety of methods, including scanning a QR code or NFC tag. All new models feature industry-standard beamforming technology that is said to significantly improve router speed, overall performance and wireless range in the home.

"The increase in [the number of] smart devices has created a strong demand for smarter Wi-Fi solutions that can keep up with all of today's technology needs," said Mohammed Meraj Hoda, VP Linksys International.

"Our new, more powerful Smart Wi-Fi routers not only deliver unprecedented speed and range, but also game-changing Smart Wi-Fi tools and apps that allow users to do everything from manage kids' screen time to centrally store and stream music and video, all through their smartphone and tablet, from anywhere around the world."

With routers becoming the hub of the home, the new Smart Wi-Fi models are designed to deliver fast Wi-Fi speeds with extensive in-house Wi-Fi coverage, and come with a host of tools for home network monitoring and control.  The new routers are also compatible with Linksys Smart Wi-Fi mobile apps, which allow control of the home network on the go.

The new dual-band Smart Wi-Fi Routers are equipped with the latest 802.11ac technology, offering fast wireless speeds - up to three times the speed of Wireless-N, according to Linksys - strong range and backward compatibility with existing wireless devices. Additionally, the new Smart Wi-Fi routers are IPv6-enabled, supporting the latest Internet Protocol technology to future-proof home networks.
