The German manufacturer devolo announces the Mesh Wi-Fi 2, a system that allows you to extend your wifi network in a safe and stable way, to cover the whole house in a simple way
The current emergency has completely changed our habits. Work, school and sport, just to name a few examples, are now almost completely virtual and have entered our homes significantly changing the daily routines of adults and children. That is how a stable and secure internet connection has become, especially in the last year, a ‘good’ of great importance.
devolo, the German Wi-Fi specialist, presents the new Mesh Wi-Fi 2 kit, the best ally for stable and secure Wi-Fi connections within your home. The innovative combination of Mesh Wi-Fi and G.hn technology as a transmission path that guides the signal through walls and ceilings makes the Wi-Fi connection highly performing and available in every room. Thanks to the functions Multi-User MIMO, Access Point Steering e Beamforming, the system automatically connects all end devices to the home network, ensuring maximum data transmission speed.
devolo Mesh Wi-Fi 2: turn off the old Wi-Fi!
The innovative technologies incorporated in the devolo Mesh Wi-Fi 2 inside the homes avoid the risk of unstable connections during lessons in virtual classrooms or business calls. Installation consists of a simple plug-and-play: Once connected, the adapters connect themselves via automatic pairing and instantly transform any power outlet into an Internet access point.
The new Mesh Wi-Fi 2 kit from devolo it consists of two or three Wi-Fi Mesh adapters – Starter Kit the first and Multiroom Kit the second – capable of providing homogeneous network coverage throughout the home. Thus, the router’s Wi-Fi function can be permanently disabled – on most routers, this can be done by simply pressing a button. A great innovation, especially for users who have an old router, which allows you to benefit from the latest Mesh functions without having to replace it with a new one.
In contrast, the Mesh Wi-Fi 2 system it easily manages all wireless data transmission, thus providing the home network with a real-time update. The three-band system broadcasts in the frequencies of 2.4 and 5 GHz and also uses G.hn – currently the fastest Powerline standard – as the primary way for stable data transfer via mains power in the home.
The wireless home network also is highly secured thanks to WPA3. The current security standard of the Wi-Fi Alliance is based on the WPA2 protocol and, thanks to the best 128-bit encryption, offers strong protection against unwanted access. This also requires Wi-Fi clients to support WPA3 encryption. For all other devices the protection WPA2 is still available.
Mesh Wi-Fi on autopilot thanks to Access Point Steering
Mesh Wi-Fi consists of an intelligently controlled network Wi-Fi. Through sistema di Access Point Steering, the devolo system guides devices to hotspots in total safety, ensuring the best possible connection for each specific device. In this way, Playback of videos streamed online always remains stable and video calls do not suffer unpleasant interruptions, not even moving from room to room.
But why conventional Wi-Fi does not perform optimally when users move around the house, for example by moving from the living room to the kitchen? This happens because devices usually remain connected to a single hotspot, which quickly becomes a problem with smartphones, tablets or laptops. In contrast, devolo’s smart Mesh Wi-Fi system uses Access Point Steering to automatically switch the devices themselves to the specific Wi-Fi access point with the strongest signal, thus ensuring that the connection is always optimized.
This feature is just one of the many benefits of Mesh as the ultimate solution to the problem of poor Wi-Fi connections. Thanks to this technology, in fact, devices can change hotspots faster thanks to “Fast Roaming” (Client Steering) and, thanks to Beamforming, devolo Access Points can transmit data to the devices with even greater precision, further optimizing the connection quality.
The “Band Steering” also ensures that the receivers always use the optimal frequency band: when the 2.4 GHz band begins to be too busy with traffic, the system automatically switches to the 5 GHz band, without the user having to do any kind of intervention. The Mesh package is completed by the “Airtime Fairness” function which provides even greater support for network performance, equitably assigning the maximum connection time available for use by all devices.
