Linksys Unveils Velop Whole Home Wi-Fi System


Linksys  has launched the new Velop ‘whole home’ internet system, delivering unparalleled connectivity throughout the household. Far more than a router, the Velop works seamlessly with smart TVs, smartphones, Bluetooth speakers and even Amazon Alexa for a voice-operated experience. It’s also better-looking – forget bland gray boxes with ugly protruding cables. The minimalist off-white tower blends into the most stylish of surroundings, meaning it can be placed wherever the signal is strongest. There’s no need to compromise on connectivity by hiding it away.

Velop helps users make the most out of their broadband subscriptions by delivering 100% of their Internet speed to the edge of their network. It incorporates an innovative app-led setup process – Linksys Smart Wi-Fi app. The dashboard also provides quick access to users’ Wi-Fi names and passwords, guest access, parental controls, and device prioritization.

The modular system is available in one-pack, two-pack and three-pack options. A single unit is more than adequate for a 2,000-square-foot apartment, while additional towers will boost signals in multistory houses and hard-to-reach spots such as basements and backyards.

A complementary Linksys app, available for Android, iOS and Google Play, offers many benefits. Use it to share passwords with guests, control children’s web access or boost the Smart TV signal on movie night.

Tackling patchy connectivity takes more than an internet service upgrade, which is where this innovative technology comes in. Forget dropped Skype calls and frozen TV screens – Velop by Linksys makes everyone’s home a smart one. Linksys has set the bar for true mesh networking systems to deliver the ultimate Wi-Fi experience.

UAE stockists include Carrefour, ECity, Emax, EROS, Lulu, Virgin megastores, Plugins and Sharaf DG. The suggested retail price is AED 999 for a single unit, AED 1,599 for two and AED 1,999 for a pack of three. Also available in Kuwait at Xcite and in Saudi Arabia at Jarir Bookstore.
