Linksys brings MIMO to SMEs

Linksys, the networking gear vendor owned by Cisco Systems Inc, announced yesterday it is shipping its first Multiple Input, Multiple Output, or MIMO, wireless technology to the SME market.

By CBR Staff Writer

Linksys said its WRT54GX4 Wireless-G broadband router together with SRX400 and WPC54GX4 wireless-G PC card enables up to 10 times faster throughput and three times more range than standard wireless-G networks.

MIMO technology also promises advantages for wireless VoIP.

By overlaying the signals of two Wireless-G compatible radios, MIMO has the capacity to double data transfer rates. Linksys said the maximum wireless data transfer rates of the SRX400 exceed capabilities of the traditional wired Ethernet 10/100 data ports that are in place on most computer networks.

MIMO also uses signal reflections, which can limit performance in standard wireless products, in order to increase range and reduce dead spots in the network, enabling the coverage area to be increased by up to three times that of Wireless-G, Linksys said.

The WRT54GX4 and WPC54GX4 retail for $149.99 and $99.99, respectively.
