Linksys Introduces MIMO-Based Wireless-G Products

Linksys, a division of Cisco Systems, introduced a new line of 802.11g products that leverages MIMO (Multiple In, Multiple Out) technology to provide faster wireless network throughput, reduced dead spots, and increased wireless range over standard Wireless-G networks. Linksys' MIMO uses two radios and three antennas on a wireless router or client adapter for improved performance in range and speed.

When using the technology at both ends, Linksys said its SRX wireless products can reach up to 3 times farther and wireless network performance can be enhanced by up to 8 times compared to the
throughput of standard 802.11g technology.

The Linksys SRX devices are Wi-Fi-certified and backward compatible with 802.11b, 802.11g and other Linksys SRX products. Mixed wireless environments, such as networks containing SRX, 802.11b and 802.11g products, can operate each client at its own maximum data rate. The first two products are a broadband router ($199 ESP) and a notebook adapter ($129 ESP).
