With so many working from home, Is it time to upgrade my Wi-Fi network?
Today’s post is by Troy Lowe; Vice President of Development at SafeSourcing Inc.
With Wi-Fi 6 becoming more widely available, you may be thinking of purchasing new Wi-Fi hardware. When purchasing the new hardware you may find that there is another option besides the traditional router that you are probably using now. This fairly new Wi-Fi technology uses a mesh network. A mesh network contains a main router that you connect directly to your modem and then one or more satellite modules or nodes that you place throughout the structure for full Wi-Fi coverage. After connecting the main router to the modem and setting it up, you place the other mesh devices strategically throughout your structure so that all areas of the structure are covered. The mesh systems come with one or more of the satellite devices but you may need to purchase additional ones depending on the size of the structure that needs to be covered. Some of the benefits of using the multiple mesh devices is that it can allow for faster speeds, better reliability and greater Wi-Fi coverage because all of your Wi-Fi devices are not connecting through the same router. Below are some other benefits of purchasing a mesh Wi-Fi system.
- Better Coverage
- Easy Configuration
- Customized Size
- No Single Point Failure
- Less Connection Failure
- Smartphone Management
