The Internet of Education is a valuable tool that connects students, educators and parents through social media, distance education and online web learning. At its basic form the internet provides students with a medium in which to submit papers, download course schedule and view class announcements and content.
That is why this year, in addition to purchasing low tech basics (i.e. pencils, papers) and the needed high-tech electronics (i.e. tablets, phones, batteries) you should consider upgrading your in-home internet connectivity. Our friends at Linksys have the perfect Internet of Education connectivity tools. The Linksys Velop WI-FI Home Mesh is a perfect Tri-Band system that provides 100% Wifi coverage throughout your home, dorm or apartment.
The Linksys Velop WI-FI Home Mesh Kit can cover up to 6,000 sq. ft. As you move through your home you seamlessly connect to the strongest signal with one network name (SSID) throughout your whole home. The Velop’s modular design comes in 2 or 3 nodes which is customizable every home type, situation, and footprint. Compact in size, neutral in color, sleek in design the Velop is easy to place throughout the home whether it be in the kitchen, in your office or in the family room.
The Linksys Velop leverages the 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology. MU-MIMO is changing the way wireless routers and devices communicate. Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) sends and receives data to and from multiple devices simultaneously to increase speed and efficiency. Ideal for the ever connected home, whether gaming, streaming or simply browsing, users can control what they see with the option to prioritize Wi-Fi activities by assigning them to specific bands. The high-performance Wi-Fi System provides stronger/faster Wi-Fi supports up to 4 simultaneous data streams for 4K streaming and gaming on multiple devices.
