Linksys Re-Enters Business Wireless Networking Market

Linksys Business portfolio expanded with first Wi-Fi Access Points shortly after introducing first switches, VPN routers and IP surveillance products

Rushden, UK - February 18, 2014 - Linksys® today announced the expansion of its business networking line-up with the first of its business grade wireless access points. The new access points are ideal for businesses to deploy a fast, highly secure and reliable wireless network or to upgrade an existing wireless infrastructure. The new access points can be deployed as an access point, or range extender. Many businesses are facing a rapid increase of connected notebooks, smartphones and tablets and an increase in use of multimedia on their networks. The Linksys Business Wireless-N Access Points use the widely adopted 802.11n wireless technology to provide a fast and reliable wireless network and support advanced features such as Power over Ethernet for flexible placement, plus Rogue AP Detection and 802.11X supplicant for enhanced security.

"Wi-Fi is far more crucial to businesses these days - and is being deployed for many reasons. Wireless internet allows employees to work anywhere, have fast and free access to the web on mobile devices and enables new experiences such as voice over IP and video conferencing. At the same time hotels, retail stores and restaurants use Wi-Fi for hospitality purposes and in production, and logistics facilities it is used to connect handheld devices for real-time inventory control," said Steven Lin, director of product management for Linksys Business. "All businesses have one thing in common though: they all want their business processes to run smoothly which requires reliable solutions like we are offering with Linksys Business."

The Linksys Wireless-N Access Points can be deployed as a Wi-Fi access point or range extender to connect notebooks, smartphones, tablets, and other Wi-Fi devices to the network and the Internet.
