Linksys, once a Cisco brand, and now part of Belkin, has always retained its identity as a respected name in data networking for home and small office. Known for a wide range of Wi-Fi routers, it has smartly moved with the times to offer the Linksys AC 1300 Mesh Wi-Fi system in a pack of 1 (Rs 7,999), 2 (Rs 14,999) or 3 (Rs 21,999) nodal units. This has the advantage that you can mix-n-match units and buy more if your home or office expands.

Velop is an 802.11ac system with dual band operation and Mu-MIMO and as its model name suggests, it can deliver a data speed of 1300Mb/s. While offering the advantage of app-based easy setup; self optimizing network and self healing, Velop also works with Amazon Alexa. Which means, if you have installed an Echo speaker, you can always say: "Alex, What is my Wi-Fi password?" if you forgot it. The units are much bigger and (at almost 1kg each) heavier than some of the other options, and I am guessing lets Linksys build-in larger antennas. In-built flash and RAM memory allows it to get auto updated with new software.
