Timing of this announcement comes as laptop and smart phone manufacturers are expected to start introducing 802.11ac products towards the end of 2012. Consumers can also take advantage of the new technology by connecting their smart TVs, game consoles and other devices to the new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router via the new Linksys Universal Media Connector.
