Velop is also a tri-band system, meaning that one of its three Wi-Fi radios is constantly dedicated to communication between each router to ensure there's no speed drop off at any point in the connection.
Linksys has announced how much we'll pay for the Velop system when it launches here in Australia in April.
But wireless signals are often obstructed by walls and other objects, making it tough to surf the Web on the second floor when the router is on the first. The router falls over, or the modem is flaky, or there are corners of the house that may as well be dressing up in sheets to scare away any useful Wi-Fi network coverage.
An accompanying app for Android and iOS lets users manage guest access, parental controls, device prioritization, and more. While all of these features are great, acquiring the Linksys Velop Router system will definitely come at a price and performance of these routers will also depend upon the package that you're now running from your internet service provider.
A Velop modular Wi-Fi mesh system outperforms traditional routers and range extenders giving you 100% seamless Wi-Fi without lag or buffering.
True Modular Mesh Design - Each node is built to connect with each other over Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet if present. Six antennas hidden inside push signal up and down, as well as left and right, to improve Wi-Fi performance.
In the past, if a homeowner wanted to extend the coverage of their in-home Wi-Fi network, they had to depend on devices called Wi-Fi extenders.
App-Led Setup - The new Linksys app (formally known as the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi app) automatically identifies the nodes to be setup using Bluetooth and creates a secure connection between the mobile device and each node.
The Velop is available for purchase today, but you'll have to dig deep into your pocket if you're interested in Linksys' system and prefer it over something like the Google Wifi.
