Singapore – February 20, 2020 Linksys, the connected home division within newly merged Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) (HK: 6088) entity, introduces  the Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system today. 

The newest addition to the Velop product family, the Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system comes inbuilt with the next-generation orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) technology which decreases latency in high-density environments to deliver high speed WiFi to multiple devices simultaneously. The router covers 3,000 square feet per node and is designed to manage the demands of more than 50 devices all sharing the same bandwidth. The router’s MU-MIMO technology allows downloads and uploads simultaneously, making it the ideal system for instantaneous 4K/8K streaming, online gaming, social media, and uninterrupted use of heavy apps. What’s more, the Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system comes with BSS technology which eliminates interference from nearby networks so that users can be assured of the strongest, clearest signal for their devices.

“96% of Singaporeans today are watching videos online, with almost half of them streaming TV content via the Internet1; and they expect to access always-on, always-connected content across multiple screens. This, together with the increase in high-bandwidth applications such as 4K/8K connections, means that it is ever-more critical for Linksys to continually innovate to support the connected world of today and the future,” said Jenny Ng, General Manager for Asia. “We are thrilled to advance and evolve our Intelligent Mesh product portfolio with our first WiFi 6

Velop Mesh system. With 4x faster speed, more WiFi range and 4x increased WiFi capacity, the Velop MX5300 is poised to provide uninterrupted streaming, faster connectivity and improved battery life for connected devices.”

  • Performance and reliability – The Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system contains three WiFi radios (one 2.4 GHz and two 5 GHz) to balance the wireless workload. Users can enjoy 4X faster speeds with WiFi 6 technology that delivers true gigabit speeds throughout their entire home, up to 5.3 Gbps with 12-stream connectivity.  
  • Hassle-free setup – The Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system can be easily set up from any Android or iOS device using the Linksys App.  With a few easy steps, The Velop MX5300 WiFi 6 Mesh system can be connected to form a mesh network that covers the home in strong and reliable WiFi.
