Linksys has launched in Singapore three new networking products in its MAX-Stream MU-MIMO portfolio.

  1. EA9500 (S$539) – Tri-Band router capable of up to 8 MU-MIMO streams.
  2. RE7000 MU-MIMO (S$199) – range extender with seamless roaming.

“With the rise of bandwidth intensive activities, such as 4K streaming and online gaming, the importance of an efficient and optimized Wi-Fi network is more critical than ever. The Max-Stream family of products provides the broadest array of MU-MIMO capable and enabled products in the marketplace. MU-MIMO enables multiple devices to communicate with the router and/or range extender simultaneously, so the result is a faster and more reliable Wi-Fi,” said Justin Doucette, Senior Director of Product Management at Linksys.

Singtel Fibre Broadband customers can present their latest broadband bill at selected Challenger outlets to enjoy the offer.

This promotion is offered exclusively by Singtel.

The Linksys AC5400 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Router (Max-Stream EA9500) and AC600 MU-MIMO USB Adapter (WUSB6100M) will be available exclusively at Challenger stores and Hachi.Tech from 14 July 2016.
