Linksys will be taking visitors to this year’s GITEX Technology Week through a preview of how future homes and offices can enjoy better, faster, and stronger connectivity.
A particular emphasis is being placed on enterprise-grade networking performance and security. This follows a strategic alliance between Linksys and Fortinet announced earlier this year, wherein Fortinet has already made a strategic investment of USD160mn in Linksys.
Given the accelerated rollout of 5G infrastructure in the Middle East today, Linksys will be showcasing an all-inclusive lineup of 5G routers and hotspots that enable consumers and businesses to make the most of the technology’s enormous capacity. These 5G-enabled experiences will be further enhanced through Linksys Wi-Fi 6 technology.
Linksys’s Wi-Fi 6 routers offer four times the network capacity of previous Wi-Fi 5 generations and feature Velop Intelligent Mesh technology—which now works with Apple HomeKit—making an upgradable system that expands with easy-to-add nodes. Linksys is also previewing at GITEX its Wi-Fi 6E technology that leverages the 6GHz band for uncluttered channels with more capacity, a stronger signal, and faster data transfer for smart home and bandwidth-heavy devices.
Its latest hardware solutions are complemented by a range of unique software-driven features on the Linksys App. Users can manage their Wi-Fi network remotely from any mobile device, while the Linksys Shield feature lets home users block unwanted content and manage their family’s Internet usage.
GITEX visitors can also see a demo of a range of other business-led offerings including the Linksys Cloud Manager, and how the company has been broadening its relationships with leading Internet service providers in the region.
Linksys will be located at GITEX Technology Week in Zabeel Hall 2 – Booth B10.
