Linksys Introduces Velop WiFi Dual-Band, Leverages Intelligent Mesh Technology

There is no better way to celebrate 30 years of Linksys than with the launch of the Linksys Velop Dual-Band Whole Home Wi-Fi Mesh System. For those who do not know the brand, we can say that it is a really important company in the WiFi networks sector.

In this case, they present their new range with the same characteristics of the powerful software of the Velop Tri-Band range, including Intelligent Mesh, advanced parental control, website blocking and compatibility with Amazon Alexa, as well as ease of use and configuration through from the Linksys app, but in a smaller format, with dual band technology and at a much more affordable price.

Linksys Velop Dual-Band Whole Home WiFi Mesh System

It is one more component of the Velop range and it adds a modular dual-band WiFi mesh system (available in packages of 1, 2 and 3 nodes) that can be installed in various mesh configurations to serve any type of home, with any distribution and with any WiFi map. Velop is compatible with any ISP modem or network gateway. Dual Band and Tri Band nodes are 100% interoperable and interchangeable, so any customer can switch from one to the other according to their needs.

On the other hand, the Velop Dual-Band nodes are designed in terms of performance and elegance. In this case, it is a smaller product than the Velop Tri-Band models, and its careful and attractive design allows us to place them anywhere. The Velop range will have wall mounts from June that will allow the nodes to be placed high on the wall or removed from the shelves to leave the space clearer.

These are them main specifications of the new Linksys:

  • Powerful Dual Band Technology - Each Velop node is a dual-band AC 2 × 2 802.11ac Wave 2 with MU-MIMO radio configuration with combined speed up to 1300 Mbps *.
  • Truly modular mesh design: Each node is designed to connect to each other via WiFi or Ethernet cable or a combination of the two to provide better performance. Nodes are automatically configured to connect in multiple different mesh topologies.
  • Smart mesh technology - Intelligent Mesh ™ technology aims to simplify WiFi networks and optimize performance throughout the network. The Velop system adapts to the WiFi needs of users. It automatically reconfigures and optimizes itself for fast and consistent WiFi connectivity anywhere in the house.
  • Velop Dual-Band and Tri-Band are interoperable - Velop is the most flexible WiFi system with which users can select their Velop system based on the size of their home, their Internet service package or the adaptation of their home to the smart home. Velop users can use the Tri-Band and Dual-Band versions on the same network. Adding a Dual-Band node to an existing Tri-Band mesh network is an affordable way to expand coverage.
  • Easy configuration through the app - Configuration through the Linksys app makes it easier than ever to set up and manage a network.
  • Spot Finder Technology (Patent Pending) - the location of each node is critical to establishing a secure connection. During setup, Velop will recommend the best location to reduce downtime, maximize performance, and improve range and signal strength.
  • Velop works with Amazon Alexa - Velop includes custom Amazon Alexa "options" that allow you to enable / disable the guest network and read the credentials of the main network and the guest network.
  • Automatic Updates - With automatic software updates, Velop is always highly up-to-date and secure without having to update hardware. Velop will automatically monitor for updates and apply each new software to offer new features, resolve vulnerabilities and improve performance as they become available.
