Future-proof your home network with Linksys

SINGAPORE, 18 AUG, 2020 – Linksys, the connected home division within the Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) entity, expanded its growing WiFi 6 portfolio with the launch of the Linksys MR9600 (AX6000) router.

The Linksys MR9600 WiFi 6 mesh router offers 6.0 Gbps of speed and coverage of up to 3,000 square feet. The WiFi 6 technology sends and receives multiple streams of data simultaneously and reduces latency, providing up to 4x more capacity. This means that the MR9600 can handle the demands of up to 40+ devices, all competing for the same bandwidth, without any interference for continuous 8K video streaming and advanced gaming.

The MR9600 comes inbuilt with Intelligent Mesh™ Technology​ which allows users to future-proof the router and expand their home network by adding any other Linksys mesh compatible products.

“Stable internet connection has never been more important than it is now with so many users having to juggle work and leisure at home,” said Jenny Ng, General Manager for Asia. “As we hurdle through this new shift, consumers become more reliant on their home network and need solutions that meet their criteria. We are excited to continuously introduce more innovative and future-ready solutions that cater to today’s needs, and for years to come.”
