Linksys logoLinksys has introduced N300 and N600 business-class access points.

The LAPN300 Wireless-N300 Access Point with PoE and LAPN600 Wireless-N600 Dual Band Access Point with PoE join Linksys’ switches and VPN routers to continue the company’s re-entry into small business networking.

Rather than come in with guns blazing with 802.11ac APs, Linksys chose a more conservative route, sticking to 802.11n products to start.

Both APs share a common Qualcomm-Atheros-based platform, with the only difference being the single 2.4 GHz N300 radio or 2.4 and 5 GHz N300 radios enabling the LAPN600’s simultaneous dual-band N600 class.
