Amped Wireless logoAmped Wireless has started to ship its MU-MIMO router.

The ATHENA HighPower AC2600 Wi-Fi Router with MU-MIMO, announced at CES 2015, is a QCA based 4x4 AC router supporting a maximum link rate of 800 Mbps in 2.4 GHz when used in 40 MHz bandwidth mode and 1733 Mbps maximum 5 GHz band rate in 80 MHz bandwidth mode.

It's the second MU-MIMO enabled router to ship, following Linksys' EA8500, which started shipping in May.

The ATHENA hardware platform includes a Qualcomm 1.4GHz Dual Core SoC, four 5 dBi dual-band antennas and is stuffed to the gills with Amped's signature array of amplifiers, i.e. four each transmit and receive for both bands for a total of 16 amplifiers.
