The company has launched a wireless router that jumps on the ac standard, enabling speeds almost "three times faster than [the] existing 802.11n technology." This technology endows Belkin's AC1200DB router with the ability to stream videos across multiple devices easily.
"With a majority of video content being consumed on devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, and tablets instead of a home computer, today's tech-savvy families have an increasing need for simultaneous connections to multiple devices throughout their homes," said Mike Chen, senior director of Belkin's networking business.
"The enhanced speed and expanded coverage of Belkin's AC router enables families to achieve the truly seamless online experiences they crave."
The AC1200DB provides gigabit speeds wirelessly over an extended range with greater reliability. It also features two USB ports along its spine which can be used to wirelessly access a printer or hard-disk drive.
