Router not fast enough? Problem solved, according to Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) with its Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router with 802.11ac technology accompanied by a compatible universal media connector to connect devices such as smart TVs, Blu-ray players and game consoles at gigabit speed, wirelessly.

The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC 1750 HD Video Pro has the best Wi-Fi performance in the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router portfolio and, together with the Linksys AC Universal Media Connector, is now available through retail and online stores in the US.

The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC 1750 HD Video Pro is powered by the industry's next-generation wireless technology, 802.11ac, delivering powerful performance with Wi-Fi speeds up to 450+1300 Mbps1. It can reach speeds approximately three times faster than existing 802.11n products but also offers better range and reliability and helps to improve power consumption of mobile devices. Its peak performance combined with the new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi2 platform allows consumers to take control of their home network and devices through Smart Wi-Fi Tools and Apps.

To simplify connecting devices to the network, SimpleTap has been introduced with the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers. SimpleTap lets consumers connect devices to the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router with as little as one tap of a button or with a quick swipe or scan of a device or tag, making it easier than ever to add devices to their Wi-Fi network.

As well as adding a new router to the Smart Wi-Fi portfolio, Linksys continues to collaborate with consumer electronics industry leaders to simplify and optimize the connected home experience for consumers. Linksys is excited to announce its partnership with LG Electronics. This partnership will help consumers get the best possible HD viewing experience on their Smart TV in the near future when using video on demand services such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube HD, as well as LG's enhanced "3D World" app that offers popular Disney movie titles.

The consumer opt-in prioritization for LG Smart TVs is designed to maximize the high-definition streaming experience without noticeably affecting connectivity or performance of other connected devices, such as smartphones and smart appliances connected to the home network.

Beyond making products available through retail and online stores, Cisco also collaborates with service providers to offer this type of solutions to consumers. Qatar Telecom in the Middle East is the first service provider globally that is rolling out AC-enabled Linksys Smart Wi-Fi products to its fibre broadband customers. Qtel provides a full range of telecommunications services in Qatar and across its presence in 17 countries.
