Linksys Launches MU-MIMO Router

Irvine-based Linksys, the wireless networking unit of Belkin, said today that it has rolled out a new MU-MIMO enabled wireless router. The new Linksys Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router supports the new 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple Output) technology from Qualcomm. That standard provides dedicated wireless connections to devices, which Linksys can provide up to 3x faster speeds than current Wi-Fi. Linksys said the new device retails for $279.99.
