Powering the next-generation home network.


Cisco today unveiled a new line of Linksys® Smart Wi-Fi Routers with app enabled capabilities targeted to the consumer market. The three new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers scheduled to be available in the Middle East in May will offer exceptional wireless performance and maximum throughput, as well as support for Cisco Connect Cloud.

“The proliferation of wireless devices and the explosion of video streaming have redefined the importance of the home network. Today’s connected consumer has high expectations for reliability, simplicity, and software and apps that grow with them over time,” said Brett Wingo, vice president and general manager, Cisco Home Networking. “Our new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers are game-changing products that put intelligence into the home network so consumers have a platform that makes it easy to manage and optimize their devices, and enjoy apps that deliver great new experiences.”

The new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers are capable of handling everything from streaming HD video and multiplayer gaming to downloading large files, adding storage or printers, and connecting multiple devices.
The next generation of Cisco Connect software, called Cisco Connect Cloud, works with new Linksys EA-Series products and enhances the users’ experience by giving them anytime, anywhere access to multiple home networks. New apps coming from Cisco and partners will deliver additional capabilities for connected devices, so that consumers can benefit from improved home network experiences right away and for years to come.

The Linksys EA Series is scheduled to be available at major retailers including Eros, Sharaf DG, Carrefour, and others from May 2012.
