Linksys have released their latest and greatest high performance router yet, the EA9500. This Tri-Band router is rated at an amazing AC5400 speed, and is capable of up to 8 simultaneous streams thanks to its MU-MIMO (Multi -user, Multi Input, Multi output) capability.
The EA9500 is a tri-band router , combining 1,000Mbps on the single 2.4GHz channel and up to 2,166Mbps on each the two 5GHz channels. These are combined to give the AC5400 rating. The eight antennas combined with beam forming technology make the EA9500 capable of covering a very large house with a quality signal.
The MU-MIMO feature provides up to 8 simultaneous streams, making this a great choice for families or businesses with multiple clients, where lag and buffering would otherwise degrade the network quality. Add in no less than eight Gigabit LAN ports plus a WAN port, a USB 2.0 and 3.0 port and the aforementioned eight antennas and it’s clear we are looking at one of the most powerful routers on the market.
The EA9500 comes with Linksys’ tried and true web management control that builds on Linksys’ years of experience at designing networking products. Anyone who has ever used a Linksys product will be right at home.
The old saying, ‘If you want the best, be prepared to pay for it’ certainly applies here with a sticker price of $400 USD. If you live in a large house with a fast internet connection and wish to stream UHD content, download torrents and play PC games all at the same time, then the EA9500 has you covered.
