Linksys recently revealed their new line of MAX-STREAM devices capable of Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple Output technology (MU-MIMO) and now they have announced the first of the units becoming available. The newly available router is the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1900 Dual-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit router (EA7500).

The MU-MIMO technology helps to ensure uninterrupted Wi-Fi connectivity to all the devices in the home and it functions as if multiple devices have their own dedicated router. That way you will have less lag or interruptions which are especially important when streaming 4K content. The increased bandwidth needed to stream this resolution requires a great connection at all times which the EA7500 should deliver.

Hardware wise the EA7500 is built around a Qualcomm IPQ 1.4GHz dual-core processor and naturally comes with the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 with MU-MIMO Wi-Fi standard. It is an AC1900 router with up to 600Mbps on the legacy 2.4GHz band and up to 1300 Mbps on the 5GHz band. It also comes with four Gigabit ethernet LAN ports for the wired connections and one Gigabit WAN port next to the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports.

The three external and adjustable antennas should provide maximum coverage in your home while you can manage and monitor your network and easily control Wi-Fi devices remotely on a smartphone with the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi app. The router features the WPA and WPA2 encryption standards that are the default and also comes with an SPI firewall to help keep your network safe.

“If you have or are planning to purchase a 4K TV you will need a Max-Stream router to ensure you have a seamless 4K online streaming experience,” said Justin Doucette, director product management, Linksys. “A single stream of 4K content takes a minimum of 20 Mbps to maintain a consistent stream, and when you combine that with multiple streams plus normal Wi-Fi use from gaming, internet surfing, IoT connectivity and music streaming, it adds up fast. Max-Stream will enable multiple streams of Wi-Fi to occur so users can have the ultimate 4K and networking experience.”

The Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1900 Dual-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit router (EA7500) is available now and comes with an MSRP of £149.99 ($199.00 USD).
