Mesh Net­work­ing Sys­tems Show­case

HWM (Singapore) - - FEATURES -


The D-Link Covr sys­tem isn t a true ue mesh so­lu­tion, but clev­erly tries to op­er­ate like one. What it ac­tu­al­lyly is a col­lec­tion of pre-paired com­po­nents ents that work with each other out off the box, with tech­nol­ogy to seam­lesslyssly switch de­vices to the next strong­est gest sig­nal. Two kits should be avail­ableable at launch, one fea­tur­ing a routerr and ex­ten­der set and an­other Pow­er­line rline Wi-Fi set that also works with your our ex­ist­ing router.


The Netgear Orbi is also not a true mesh net­work­ing sys­tem be­cause its satel­lites only com­mu­ni­cate with the router and not with each other. How­ever, the Orbi uses Wi-Fi tech­nol­ogy for back­haul com­mu­ni­ca­tions and ded­i­cates an en­tire net­work to it. It is also quick, the ded­i­cated net­work for back­haul com­mu­ni­ca­tions has a band­width of 1,733Mbps, while the 2.4GHz and 5GHz net­works for client us­age sup­port speeds of up to 400Mbps and 867Mbps re­spec­tively.


TheTh Linksys Velop is one of the most pol­ished mesh net­work­ingne sys­tem around. It is a tri-band sys­tem and has a net­work ded­i­cated solely to back­haul trans­mis­sions. Its 2.4GHz net­work of­fers speeds of up to 300Mbps, while it­sts two 5GHz net­works man­age 867Mbps each. The Velop was also de­signed to be easy to setup, users only need to down­load an app to get started and ac­tual setup process takesta less than 7ve min­utes.


The Google Wi7 mesh net­work­ing sys­tem is one of the most com­pact and stylish sys­tems avail­able to­day, with each node only about the size of large cup. It uses a dual-band net­work setup of­fer­ing speeds of up to 300Mbps on a 2.4GHz net­work and 867Mbps on a 5GHz net­work. This means that un­like the Linksys Velop, it doesn t have a net­work ded­i­cated solely to han­dle back­haul trans­mis­sions.
