Ciscoâ€™s just launched a brand new set of Linksys dual-band routers in the Philippines, and though they may look like a spitting image of the ones weâ€™ve seen in the market, donâ€™t be fooled. These bad boys have an ace up their sleeves.
Itâ€™s called Cisco Connect Cloud. Yay, another Cloud service. Groan. But again, donâ€™t be fooled. Itâ€™s not what you think it is. Connect Cloud is actually Ciscoâ€™s latest innovation thatâ€™ll let you manage your Cisco router via an app on your iOS or Android phone, whether youâ€™re at home or in someone else’s home halfway across the globe, so you can do more with it.
Hereâ€™s a rundown of the current Connect Cloud apps out now and what they have to offer:
|Block the Bad Stuff||Block the Bad Stuff brings safe web surfing to Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers in an easy way. Protect all users and devices from accessing content from security vulnerable sites, adult content and other non-family friendly sites.||iOS|
|HipPlay||HipPlay allows users to play, beam, share photos, music, videos on their phone, tablet, PC, Mac or TV when they want, where they want.||iOS|
|Twonky Video||Twonky Video is a mobile browser for smartphones and tablets to browse online video services and “beam” them to your Smart TV or AirPlay devices.||Android / iOS|
|Netproofer||Netproofer helps parents restrict access to specific websites for all users or per specific device.||Android|
Free? Some, but not all. Also note, not all are available in the Philippines App Store/Google Play store.

Not quite the affordable bunch, but you got to admit, these are stylllish as hell, and thanks to Connect Cloud, offers up more possibilities than the run-of-the-mill router.
