The EA9500 Tri-Band Wireless-AC5400 MAX-STREAM MU-MIMO Gigabit Router from Linksys features eight antennas and eight Gigabit Ethernet ports. The eight antennas support a single 2.4 GHz frequency band and two 5 GHz frequency bands for a total wireless bandwidth of up to 5400 Mbps. The enhanced data transfer rates are backed up by the router's 1.4 GHz dual core processor capable of handling multiple data paths simultaneously. In addition to network connectivity, the EA9500 features a single USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port for connecting USB devices such as USB hard drives and printers to the network.
The EA9500 supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking standards ensuring nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device can access the network. Once configured, wireless devices can take advantage of MU-MIMO (multiple user-multiple input multiple output) technology which gives each connected device its own data path resulting in a stronger, more reliable signal. This allows for smooth streaming of HD video content, lag free online gaming, and enhanced overall data transfer rates for a more reliable wireless connection.
Tri-Band Wi-Fi Speeds up to 5.3 Gbps
The MAX-STREAM AC5400 router offers three independent Wi-Fi bands that deliver fast combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps. Tri-Band technology delivers up to double the Wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. High-bandwidth applications like videoconferencing and movie streaming are ideal for the two high-speed 5 GHz bands, while lower-bandwidth devices like older wireless-N and -G computers can utilize the 2.4 GHz band.
If you're working in your home office, you can quickly download large files thanks to the MAX-STREAM's 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, which delivers the performance necessary for seamless videoconferencing and fast file transfers. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once, thus delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.
Connect Wired Devices with USB and Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability, with speeds up to 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections, including one fast USB 3.0 port, are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.
Advanced Security Features
With the MAX-STREAM AC5400 Router, your work files, data, and home network information are safely connected with WPA/WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall.
The router features eight adjustable external antennas, which can be positioned for optimal performance. They provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring complete Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. Unlike the two or three data streams found on other routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams for stronger, faster performance.
Play video games, listen to music, check email, shop, stream movies, and more--without having to worry about signal drop-off. Beamforming technology directs Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices. This focused direction provides increased signal strength and coverage.
