This follows Linksys' re-launch in May and the introduction of the WRT1900AC Router.

The new model supports cluster management to simplify management of multiple access points from one single interface, and a fully customisable captive portal for businesses to welcome visitors in a branded environment. Linksys A/NZ product manager, Dann Hall, the company's resurgence in Australia and New Zealand was continuing, with the Pro Series becoming an important part of our local Wi-Fi access point lineup.

"We are committed to delivering high quality, enterprise-grade features to small and medium-sized business at affordable pricing," he said. "The Pro Series addresses an important market need for small and medium-sized businesses, who too often have to choose between high-end enterprise hardware or consumer products to address their needs.

"I'm confident that our Pro Series Access Point provides the right balance of advanced features and affordability to this crucial but often under-addressed sector."

The Linksys Pro Series Wireless-AC Access Point is available now through Distributors and Resellers for $600.
