Linksys Launches MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi Router

Published

on

Linksys has announced the Middle East launch of the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi router to deliver seamless, same-speed connectivity across multiple devices at home. “Everyone residing in the UAE and the wider region has a multitude of connected devices used throughout the home, all running simultaneously – the new Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi router ensures that all users stay connected at similar speeds across the residence,” Amanullah Khan, Managing Director, Belkin, Middle East, Turkey & Africa. “We’re putting an end to any potential arguments about which family member is using all the bandwidth through this new solution, which delivers faster WiFi to more than 10 devices at the same time.”

The UAE is one of the most highly-connected societies, with Global media Insight recently reporting that 93% of residents connect to the Internet daily, and spend up to eight hours per day online. This ubiquitous connectivity is driving demand for home WiFi solutions that enable faster and more reliable access for multiple devices, such as the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi router.

The MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology embedded in the new Linksys wireless router sends WiFi to up to a dozen devices at the same time and same speed. Users can interact on social media, play, stream, and work all at once around the home, without experiencing lag or buffering–at up to 2x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.

Two dedicated WiFi bands that deliver combined speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps divide the user demand within the new Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi router, with high-bandwidth activities like 4K video streaming connected to the high-speed 5 GHz band, and basic activities like email running on the 2.4 GHz band.  A powerful dual-core processor powers the router to handle multiple simultaneous data streams, resulting in faster speeds and overall enhanced performance.

“Consumer expectations of a fully connected home with 4K TVs, HD streaming media players, laptops and tablets, game consoles, and multiple mobile phones demand a robust and innovative solution – the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 WiFi router delivers on those expectations,” concluded Khan.

London-Based World Mobile to Launch Unique Balloon-Driven Hybrid Mobile Network in Zanzibar

Published

on

World Mobile is launching its unique hybrid mobile network supported by low altitude platform balloons in Zanzibar, as it plans to roll out its innovative service providing reliable mobile internet to more people at a lower cost throughout the African continent. World Mobile’s balloons will be the first to officially launch in Africa for commercial use, providing a more cost-effective way to provide digital connection to people compared to rolling out legacy internet infrastructure. The remotely controlled aerostat balloons are powered by solar panels, inflated by helium, and tethered to the ground. Once airborne, they act as floating cellular base stations transmitting radio signals to ground stations and personal devices.

The project – the first since a successful $40 million raise – will deliver coverage and access to the digital economy for over 1m million people in Zanzibar by end of 2023.  It is the first step in World Mobile’s mission to help bring nearly four billion people online before 2030 in line with the UN and World Bank’s SDGs. Data from the United Nations shows almost half the world’s population, 3.7 billion people, the majority of them women, and most in developing countries, are still offline.

Beyond Zanzibar, World Mobile is in discussions with government officials in Tanzania and Kenya, as well as other territories underserviced by traditional mobile operators. It plans to have 20 mesh sites – local Wi-Fi nodes – rolled out by January 2022 and 120 sites during the first six months of 2022 including the first aerostat balloon launch.

The rollout will cover approximately 75% of Unguja Island and provide access to the wider digital economy including communications, e-commerce, finance, healthcare, and education to the islands’ 896K people. Micky Watkins, CEO of World Mobile said, “We want to help create a world where everyone can access affordable connectivity, a world where economic freedom is truth, and a world where people are able to jump on the opportunities that the internet creates. Zanzibar will become the world’s first smart region powered by World Mobile, connecting businesses, schools, and society as a whole.”

“Mobile internet services are becoming quite popular in Zanzibar, like everywhere else around the globe. These services bring online access to information and communication to the masses through their mobile phones, helping bridge the existing rural and urban digital gap. More crucially, however, these services are singularly responsible for promoting financial inclusion by allowing the banked and underbanked in Zanzibar to participate fully in the emerging digital economy. While these services have become indispensable, the high price of communication is a major entry barrier for the poor majority. World Mobile’s service launch of affordable internet service in Zanzibar will be a game-changer allowing the vast majority of Zanzibaris to fully participate in the digital revolution,” added Said Seif Said, Director General of Zanzibar’s E-Government Agency.

World Mobile already has agreements in place with the Zanzibarian government to provide connectivity for 300 schools, and a four-step plan is in place to unlock Zanzibar’s Blue Economy, across marine industries. The World Mobile approach is more sustainable, in environmental, social, and governance terms. Environmental impacts are mitigated using solar-powered nodes, second-life batteries, and energy-efficient technology. World Mobile creates a positive societal impact through the application of its circular economy model – a “sharing economy” where locals share in the ownership and rewards of the network. Governance is maintained by the secure underlying blockchain technology, which means that user data privacy is guaranteed and not commercially applied as it is by other mobile operators.
