Linksys Releases Next Generation WRT Router with Mu-MIMO and Tri-stream 160 Technology

The dual-band wireless router offers ultra-fast AC Wi-Fi and open source support.

Linksys, a developer of wireless connectivity products, has released the next generation of its WRT router — the WRT3200ACM with Tri-Stream 160 and MU-MIMO technologies.

“We just made the WRT even more powerful, and equipped it with even more features as well as kept true to our word with open source support,” says Vince La Duca, Linksys product manager. “Linksys WRT is all about making the best router in its class by using all enterprise-grade components and materials while delivering the fastest wireless experience. Our WRT3200ACM now includes MU-MIMO providing the latest AC wave 2 spec, adds DFS certification to use clear Wi-Fi channels for less interference, as well as support for Tri-Stream 160 technology. We have also increased the processor clock speed to 1.8 GHz, added up to 512MB DDR3 flash memory and kept the eSATA and USB ports WRT enthusiasts continue to appreciate.”

The new WRT3200ACM extends the company’s MU-MIMO lineup in a high performance, feature rich solution for homes or small business. MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple Output) is the next generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 technology designed to improve overall performance and efficiency of a Wi-Fi network while providing dedicated bandwidth to MU-MIMO capable client devices as if they have their own dedicated router.

Almost all of today’s current home routers max out at 80 MHz channel width, however, the new WRT3200ACM boasts Tri-Stream 160 technology allowing for operation at 160 MHz channel width in the 5 GHz band. For example, an AC1900 router uses three streams at 80 MHz channel width. Each stream tops out at 433 Mbps each, resulting in a total of 1.3 Gbps. The WRT3200ACM uses three streams at 160 MHz channel width to drive data at 867 Mbps per stream, providing up to 2.6 Gbps.

The WRT3200ACM is also open-source ready for flexibility and customization of networking functions or for optimizing the router for specific use cases such as gaming, security, advanced users/IT administrators or for commercial applications.

The new Linksys WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router is now available with an MSRP of $279.99.

WRT3200ACM Hardware Specifications:

  • Enterprise-grade 80211.ac Wi-Fi radios (backward-compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n)
