Transmits Streams to Up to Four Devices

Most routers use SU-MIMO, a technology that transmits multiple spatial streams to a client device. However, SU-MIMO can only hone in on a single device at once, resulting in a huge amount of wasted router capacity.

By contrast, MU-MIMO allows the Linksys Max-Stream AC2600 Router to transmit spatial streams to up to three different devices at once. By taking advantage of the router's multiple antennas, MU-MIMO can instantly measure the time it takes for its three client devices to receive data. Once it has acquired a picture of its environment, it uses the router's beamforming technology to send a stream directly to the four targeted devices, delivering just the amount of bandwidth that's needed.

Dramatically Increases Total Network Throughput

Because it gives each of your devices a dedicated spatial stream, MU-MIMO helps ensure your devices won't have to compete for bandwidth. It's like having a dedicated router for each of your devices.

Qualcomm's MU-MIMO system is also highly adaptable. By using sophisticated grouping and scheduling algorithms, it can assign priorities to devices that are generating the most traffic. This helps the router distribute bandwidth more equitably, ensuring each of your devices gets the fastest connection possible.

Built for the Next Generation of Smart Devices

MU-MIMO is already becoming the next major enhancement in the world of Wi-Fi. It has been optimized for client devices that have lower antenna counts, ensuring you get the most out of your smartphones, tablets, or USB Wi-Fi adapters. And as more and more devices adopt the 802.11ac specification, MU-MIMO will be able to pass on higher connection speeds to an increasing number of users
