D-Link has introduced what it claims is one of the first Wi-Fi mesh systems for home or office.
The COVR-1102 AC1200 Seamless Mesh Wi-Fi System is an industry-standard mesh networking technology that allows for device flexibility as users can easily add additional units for more coverage. Performance can also be maximised with the network’s self-organising and self-optimising capabilities.
According to D-Link managing director, Graeme Reardon, the device fits into any home or office and brings seamless mesh Wi-Fi coverage to every part of the premises. “With Wi-Fi Certified EasyMesh it’s also simple to expand coverage at any point in the future if you need additional Wi-Fi, and also supports the latest Wi-Fi security technology, WPA3.”
The COVR-1102 is fast enough to support multiple devices performing data-intensive tasks like simultaneous HD streaming. It is also adaptable to different housing sizes and configurations, covering up to 325 square meters with seamless Wi-Fi, with the option of using a wired Ethernet backhaul connection for more flexible deployment.
Setup is easy with the free D-Link Wi-Fi app, for automatic synchronisation of settings across all Covr Points in the network.
Additional features include a single wireless network name and password for the home, smart steering that automatically directs the to the optimum wireless band, smart roaming that connects to the Covr Point with the strongest signal for free movement through the house and voice assistant compatibility with Alexa or Google Assistant. RRP is $299.95.
