Linksys, celebrating 30 years of networking and Wi-Fi innovation for the home and business this year, announced the availability of its latest addition to the Linksys family of Velop Whole Home Wi-Fi Mesh Systems: the new Velop Dual-Band Mesh Wi-Fi System.
The new Velop Dual-Band Series is a smaller and more affordable Wi-Fi System that is designed and built to be the world’s first mass-market flexible Wi-Fi System. It also provides all the same software features found in the Velop Tri-Band offerings including Intelligent Mesh, advanced parental controls, website blocking, Amazon Alexa compatibility, as well as ease of use and set up with the Linksys App but in a smaller form factor with dual-band technology at a more affordable price.
“Velop is now the most flexible whole home mesh Wi-Fi system on the market,” said Jason Villados, country sales manager at Linksys. “We have a Velop offering that fits any home or small business environment as well as options for different broadband service packages to deliver the best Wi-Fi experience for all the devices on the network. Our new Velop Dual-Band provides the price for performance that customers are looking for plus all the intelligent software and security features that continue to be updated for real-time access to the latest enhancements.”
Velop Dual-Band Whole Home Wi-Fi Mesh System
Linksys is expanding its Velop family to include a Dual-Band modular mesh W-iFi system, (available in 1-pack, 2-pack, and 3-pack options) that can be installed in various mesh configurations to support any type of home, floorplan or Wi-Fi footprint. Velop is compatible with any ISP modem or gateway. Both Dual-Band and Tri-Band nodes are 100-percent interoperable and interchangeable and allow for easy upgradability based on a customers’ need. Velop Dual-Band nodes are designed for performance as well as elegance; they stand about two inches shorter than the Velop Tri-Band solution and small enough to be placed anywhere with a clean and attractive look that appeals to everyone — which is unique to the mesh category of solutions for the home.
The nodes work together as a Wi-Fi system to provide reliable wireless connectivity throughout the home. Each Velop “node” is a Dual-Band AC1300 device that can act as a parent node or client node to deliver Wi-Fi all around the home while providing future-proof technology customers need as they bring new and more devices into the home. Individual nodes may be connected wirelessly or by ethernet for the fastest, most reliable connection.
Velop Dual-Band leverages Linksys Intelligent Mesh Technology, which is an evolution in Home Wi-Fi engineering that combines Linksys software and hardware to deliver Wi-Fi via the fastest path to the internet. Intelligent Mesh Technology helps provide better speed at distances, improved client handling between nodes, and dynamic improvements to back-haul to always ensure the best connection to the Internet.
Easily set-up the Velop system from an Android or iOS device using the Linksys App. With a few easy steps, Velop can connect to form a mesh network that covers the home in strong and reliable Wi-Fi. After setup is complete, the Linksys App serves as a powerful W-iFi management tool with useful features such as guest access, parental controls, device prioritization, and insights that help Velop users get maximum performance and utility from their network.
