What Mesh Network Systems can do for YOU
What can you do about your bad WI-FI right now?
The answer to that question is getting yourself a Mesh System. What is a mesh network? A group of devices working together to provide you a blanket area of coverage for your property's Wi-Fi. Providing you a smooth Wi-Fi experience throughout your premises.
This new mesh technology has essentially replaced the archaic device technology known as Wi-Fi extenders. What a Wi-Fi extender achieved was connecting to your router and broadcasting your Wi-Fi signal further. So your Wi-Fi extender would be an intermediary device to extend your Wi-Fi signal.
Now I know what you are thinking, “Well, I struggle to get Wi-Fi at the back/front of my property, why don’t I just buy a couple of Wi-Fi extenders? Wouldn’t that solve all my connectivity issues?” See, here’s the problem. Imagine you have moved from your router to an area that struggles to get Wi-Fi and an extender is right next to you.
Job done right? Wrong. Even with a single bar of Wi-Fi connectivity, you will still be connected to your router. You would need to break the connection to the router before your phone figures out there is a better Wi-Fi connection next to it and reconnect to the extender. Wi-Fi extenders are not smart devices at all.
What you gain for upgrading to Mesh
So what does this mean for you? I’m sure there’s no need to explain what a bad Wi-Fi internet connection means: missed messages, missed Wi-Fi calls, buffering videos, dropped Wi-Fi calls, manually switching device networks. It means your devices are most likely not connecting to the best signal they can be. It means inefficiently and impracticability. It means wasting your time disconnecting and reconnecting back and forth from routers to extenders. It means when an important message or call comes through, you may miss it because of a Wi-Fi dead zone.
So a mesh system is a one Wi-Fi system network designed to eliminate dead zones and provide you with an uninterrupted Wi-Fi connection. Are you interested? Before we continue with my suggestions for mesh devices, let’s give a quick mention of Wi-Fi 6.
Wi-Fi 6 is the new generation of Wi-Fi technology. Designed to improve the network performance of not just individual devices, but all connected devices simultaneously.
Here are some benefits of Wi-Fi 6
12 simultaneous movie streams
4X more device handling capacity
40% increase in data throughput
50% increase in area coverage
longer battery life for your devices
improved security with WPA3
100% backward compatible with all Wi-Fi devices
Support for 8k streaming
So for the sake of future-proofing your devices, my suggestion will be Wi-Fi 6. Let me also mention almost everyone that calls looking to purchase access points or extenders ends up purchasing a new mesh system.
Recommended Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Systems
AX8000 is the fastest speed mesh system we currently have available, it does boast features such as 8X8 Super Antenna System which should support more bandwidth to your devices. But the coolest feature has to be that it has a screen inbuilt to the router and nothing says futuristic like that.
Mid-High Tier Option:
The reason I love Asus’s XT8 is it supports triband technology, which automatically connects your device to the fastest and least crowded network to ensure a better performance standard. With Asus’s AI mesh you can include a powerful high-end router to the network for the most competitive gaming features as well.
Standard User Option:
AX3000 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi 6 System. A lot of people love TPlink and a lot of people love the TP-Link Deco X60. This is our most sought-after unit with performance across the board. With robust parental controls, built-in antivirus, and an easy setup for most people this is a fantastic solution for all your Wi-Fi problems.
