Linksys has announced that its new Velop AX4200 WiFi 6 Mesh System, the latest in the company’s WiFi 6 portfolio with built-in Linksys Mesh technology, is now officially available.
The Linksys Velop AX4200 WiFi 6 Mesh System, which comes in a three-pack, is powered by the Qualcomm Networking Pro 800 platform, a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and will now serve as the newest flagship WiFi 6 mesh system from Linksys.
It was designed to make whole-home mesh and WiFi 6 accessible to more households, particularly as many families shift to working from home and distance learning. Linksys describes the Velop AX4200 system as an ideal solution for households competing for wireless bandwidth among smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and other devices by providing uninterrupted connectivity and faster speeds, and enhancing productivity when working remote, video chatting, virtual teaching, and online learning.
The Velop AX4200 system combines the benefits of the latest WiFi standard with Linksys’ Velop Intelligent Mesh Technology to deliver true gigabit WiFi speeds to every corner of the home. It covers 2,700 square feet per node and is designed to manage the demands of more than 40 devices per node all sharing the same bandwidth. It contains four gigabit ethernet ports to provide uninterrupted high-speed connectivity for wired smart TVs, streaming devices, and gaming consoles.
With eight streams of tri-band Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and a 64-bit 1.4GHz Quad-Core ARM processor powering dynamic data processing and management, the Velop AX4200 provides network advancements that enhance efficiency, range, and power consumption and deliver more capacity for online gaming, video calls, and meetings, and 8K streaming on their devices.
Unlike some mesh systems that use a dedicated backhaul and limit the number of bands that the user can connect to, Linksys uses a dynamic backhaul, allowing access to all three bands throughout the home. Linksys’ dynamic backhaul technology chooses the best band to connect between nodes.
The Linksys Velop AX4200 WiFi 6 Mesh System is now available in either a three-pack option for an MSRP of US$500 or individually for US$250 ea.
