New Delhi, 18 January, 2012: Combining strong design with high speed performance, Belkin India, a leading provider of interconnectivity solutions across computing and consumer electronic devices, today launched a range of next generation routers. The range includes the N750 Dual Band, N600 Dual Band, N300 & N150 wireless routers and modem routers. Boasting of the changed looks, the routers are also smarter from the inside to ensure that the technology inside offers faster, stronger and more robust wireless coverage to fit today's constantly connected lifestyle.
In order to keep moving forward, Belkin developed a new antenna technology, MultiBeam, which utilizes a slot design to deliver a higher gain and improves upon the performance of a MIMO system. The new router chassis are designed specifically to support the new MultiBeam antennas and maximize the MIMO sphere and absolute coverage distance. Whereas traditional routers tend to provide a donut-shaped coverage pattern - flat and wide - the new Belkin routers orient and polarize the internal MultiBeam antennas to provide improved coverage in all directions - more of an apple shape. This technology increases the router's wireless coverage to achieve higher and more consistent network speed and minimizes the number of wireless dead spots in a home environment.
Each of the routers offers something different to fit a wide range of lifestyles, but each includes the proprietary MultiBeam antennas, from two in the N150 to five in the N750. Most of the routers also include high powered amplifiers to add more horsepower to drive the wireless signal even further.
Announcing the launch, Mohit Anand, Managing Director, India subcontinent Belkin Inc. said, “We at Belkin are very excited to launch the new range of Wireless routers for our Indian customers. We strive to introduce products that not only meet current needs but also take care of the future needs. The Multibeam technology is a breakthrough that will certainly provide improvement over existing products in the market today. The customers in India will definitely benefit from the speed, coverage & stylish looks of these products.”
The Belkin N750 also has a technology called implicit beam forming, whereby the energy of the radio signal is focused toward the devices on the network instead of radiating in all directions. In terms of speed, the Belkin N750 uses the IEEE 3x3 standards to transmit data on three streams, simultaneously, whereas traditional 802.11n routers transmit using two streams. The third stream gives 50 percent better throughput. Additionally, the N750 also features a Hardware-based Network Address Translation that enables lightning-fast NAT speeds (up to 900+ Mbps) without compromising the performance of the rest of the home network.
In independent testing, The Tolly Group, a leading independent IT testing organization, found that Belkin's N150, N300, and N600 DB together averaged a 68 percent performance improvement across all tested products, while the flagship N750 DB tested concurrent Wi-Fi and WAN speeds of up to 900Mbps. The Tolly Group benchmarked the performance of Belkin's routers in an actual residential setting against comparable products from other leading home networking brands. All tests for a given benchmark were run on the same day to minimize variability from environmental factors. For complete test results and methodology, visit www.Belkin.com/router-speed.
The Belkin N150, N300 and N600 DB routers have a significant advantage at maintaining higher network speeds over greater distances in the home. Across the board, these routers maintain higher speeds even at distances greater than 60 feet, which in a home environment means better Wi-Fi coverage, even multiple rooms away from the router's location.
The new Belkin routers improve signal coverage for multistory houses, for all Wi Fi needs. Belkin routers allow users to stream faster, roam further, and work smarter.
