Cisco has unveiled its first simultaneous Dual-N band router for the India market. The Linksys by Cisco Simultaneous Dual-N Band Wireless Router (WRT610N) is designed to offer true Wireless-N performance in both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands. It is like having two N band routers in one device. The WRT610N works with any DSL or cable broadband connection.

True simultaneous Wireless-N performance
Dual-N Band Wireless networking is designed to allow consumers to utilise both the 2.4GHz wireless spectrum and the wider, less crowded 5GHz wireless spectrum. The 5GHz band is ideal for streaming media and provides more than seven times the number of non-overlapping wireless channels, allowing for clearer transmissions. The 2.4GHz spectrum allows older network devices like print servers, cameras or older notebooks and PCs to access the network.

As opposed to other solutions, the WRT610N is designed to allow consumers to achieve full Wireless-N network speeds on both bands at the same time.

Media Optimised Networking
The Linksys by Cisco Media Optimised Networking technology helps deliver a premium experience when WRT610N users share and access multimedia content. The network performance is fine-tuned to give priority to media such as High-Definition video without the need for manual configuration. Consumers can also customise their network to give priority to certain devices like gaming consoles over others.

Easy network setup and management
Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA) provides consumers with a flash video-based guided installation for PC and Mac users. LELA uses simplified terminology that does not require knowledge of networking jargon, and helps make setting up a wireless network easier than ever before. With LELA a visual overview of all the devices connected to the network is presented, providing an easy way to quickly view the status of the network. When a new device is connected, LELA will automatically add it to the network map and notify the user.

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
Next to LELA, the Linksys by Cisco WRT610N comes with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) support. WPS is an optional certification programme from the Wi-Fi Alliance that is designed to make devices on wireless local area networks more secure and to make the set up as easy as possible. The WRT610N features a button that enables consumers to add additional devices to their network by simply pushing it and the corresponding button on the other certified product.

The Linksys by Cisco WRT610N and the matching Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adaptor WUSB600N are immediately available from authorised distributors and key retailers.
