(Re-)Connect with Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers

Still remember the older days where I was using dial-up connections and modem, the internet speed was slower and only one of us in the household can access to internet at any point of time. So everyday, me and my family will be fighting for the internet connection.

With technology advancing in today's world, such problem can be easily solved. When I am at home, other than eating and sleeping, I spend most of my time sitting down in front of computer or playing with my phone. Therefore, having a wireless network is something I couldn't live without.

So today, I will be sharing with you about one of the pioneered wireless connectivity brand - Linksys Smart Wi-Fi routers that makes Wireless-AC connectivity possible in every home.

Since its inception in 1988, Linksys has enable a connected lifestyle for people at home, at work and on the move with entertainment, security and Internet access through innovative features.

Thanks to Linksys, I have the opportunity to meet the team and understand more about the latest range of product series. The event was held at Cups N Canvas located at Selegie Road.

Packed with the latest technologies that deliver smart features on top of reliable performance, these products complement each other to ensure better signal coverage throughout the home, whether users are in a studio apartment, HDB flat or a three-storey bungalow.

3 key messages that I learnt from the presentation by Mr Tang Boon Ping, Director, Asia, Linksys and Belkin:

1. Linksys is back and is committed to investing & growing the networking business.
2. Linksys = Technology innovator + best in class performance.
3. Linksys differentiates with Smart Wi-Fi ecosystem in both consumer and smart business space.

Mr Tang has shared with us that since joining the Belkin family in March 2013, Linksys is now more committed than ever to equipping every home with a premier ecosystem of wireless connectivity, given the increasing number of mobile devices used and the demand for a reliable and consistently strong wireless network throughout the home.
