Linksys Addresses Hot Networking Trends

At the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show, Linksys, a Division of Cisco Systems, debuted three products that address some of the hottest trends in networking: streaming audio, network storage and security.

The streaming audio trend is addressed by the Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) wirelessly transfers PC audio output to a stereo or other speaker system located anywhere within the home. The product works as a virtual sound card that connects to a stereo or speaker system via traditional audio cables or optical digital connectors.

The networked storage trend is addressed by the Wireless-G Media Storage Link Router with Speed Booster (WRTSL54GS) that enables users to connect USB disk drives directly to their network. SecureEasySetup functionality on the novelty makes creating a secure home network with networked attached storage push-button simple, and a built-in media server streams music, video, and photos located on a USB-attached storage device to any Universal Plug and Play-(UPnP) compatible media adapter. Storage devices attached to the WRTSL54GS can also be setup to be available publicly for download via a web browser or via password-protected accounts for authorized users.



Finally, the security trend is addressed by the Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera (WVC54GC) that wirelessly connects to a home or small office network and distributes a live video stream through the Internet to a web browser accessible on virtually any Windows-based PC. Its original form factor and wireless connectivity provide the flexibility to mount the WVC54GC on even the most remote wall or simply slip it into the included desktop stand for more local monitoring. An easy-to-remember name can be assigned to the WVC54GC through the SoloLink domain service from Linksys to ease the process of accessing recorded content. When its security mode is activated, the WVC54GC will send email alerts with video clips to up to three email addresses upon detecting motion within its field of view.

Both the WRTSL54GS and WVC54GC are available now through Linksys e-commerce, retail, direct response, and VAR partners at estimated street prices of $129.99. The WMB54G is available from e-commerce and direct response at an ESP of $99.99.
