Cisco unveiled its new line of Linksys routers for the Indian market. The Linksys E-Series Wireless N routers boast three different variants to suit different user’s needs. The E1000 is targeted at home users who want to use the wireless connectivity to connect to the internet and other PCs at home.
The E2000 ups the ante by giving users the liberty to select 2.4GHz or 5GHz band to avoid network interference and allow smoother transfer of files and media streaming. Additionally, the E2000 incorporates internal antenna technology that extends the coverage range of the router.
The E3000 router is the most advanced router in this range that is apt for wireless entertainment. Interesting feature in this router is the simultaneous use of both the bands that allows multimedia streaming on one and file transfers on other. The router comes built-in with an UPnP AV media server and features a USB port that allows quick sharing of files wirelessly.
Common features present in all the routers is the ability to share the connection with visitors without revealing important files on the network, Cisco Connect software, up to four Ethernet ports and WPA/WPA2 security with SPI firewall protection.
The E1000, E2000 and E3000 will sell for Rs.5999, Rs.7999 and Rs.10999 respectively.
