Cisco also announced a partnership with LG Electronics. The partnership is said to help consumers get the "best possible HD viewing experience" on LG Smart TVs by using router's automatic prioritization app.

Cisco has also started shipping the Linksys WUMC710 Universal Media Connector. This is a 5 GHz-only three-stream draft 11ac wireless bridge with built-in four-port Gigabit switch supporting a maximum 1300 Mbps link rate.

The EA6500 and WUMC710 are shipping now at MSRPs of $219.99 and $159.99, respectively. The Cisco Home Store is currently running a special on the EA6500 for $199.99 with free two-day shipping and 90 day returns. The store also has an EA6500 / WUMC710 bundle for $349.98, which is $30 off the normal total price for both products.
