Industry Research firm IDC forecasts that by 2017, consumers worldwide will be using 9.8 billion devices capable of connecting to a home network router. The Linksys EA9200 Tri-Band Router is designed for homes with many connected devices and simultaneous wireless activities � such as multiple computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, home automation products like WeMo and other networked devices.  It is also equipped with three Wi-Fi radios � One 2.4 GHz and two 5 GHz that help provide multiple wireless streams for the best wireless connections and speeds.  The Tri-Band technology really benefits families with lots of devices, and even more so when those devices are using Wireless AC (or a mix of clients � single band, Dual Band N, and Dual Band AC).

The Linksys EA9200 Tri-Band router features innovative Smart Connect technology utilizing dynamic band steering that optimizes the performance of wireless devices by balancing them across the multiple Wi-Fi bands to provide better overall coverage. The router�s six active antennas � 3 external, 3 internal (for optimal placement) � provide six data streams and a dual-core 1 GHz CPU and 3 integrated co-processors for a total of 2.96 GHz of penta-core processing power. Four Gigabit ports offer a wired connection, while beamforming technology focuses and strengthens the Wi-Fi signal to Wireless-AC devices.
