Linksys unveils Velop mesh network router

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Mesh network routers are gaining in popularity.   The idea is to have a system that broadcasts a WiFi signal from multiple points around the home or office.    Belkin’s Linksys has announced a system it calls Velop.  Director of Product Management Justin Doucette…

“From a design point of view they’re just absolutely gorgeous.  From a performance standpoint, each node is a tri-band AC 2200 router, which means that there’s three radios talking to each other.  That really does provide the ability for your bandwidth to be spread throughout your home at a very high level.  

Linksys has designed Velop for ease of set up and also enables you to interact with the system using Amazon’s Alexa.    A two pack is priced at 350 dollars with a pack of three going for 150 dollars more.  You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
