D-Link has announced its next-generation whole home Wi-Fi solutions powered by the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform. The Covr systems provide high-speed and seamless Wi-Fi needed to support many connected devices found in a modern smart home.
There are two solutions: the AC2200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi System (COVR-2202) and AC1200 Dual-Band Whole Home Wi-Fi System (COVR-C1203)
Selected as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree, COVR-2202 delivers powerful performance and speed, and its smart backhaul feature uses smart antennas to automatically optimize backhaul signal between the Covr Points for a more reliable connection.
Featuring MU-MIMO technology for higher and more efficient throughput, the AC1200 Dual-Band Covr Points in COVR-C1203 virtually eliminate annoying Wi-Fi dead spots, and create a zone of dedicated high-speed, seamless Wi-Fi for homes up to 5000 square feet. Ideal for enjoying bandwidth-hungry multimedia applications throughout the house.
For those who need more power and Wi-Fi coverage in larger homes, the COVR-2202 is ideal. The system comprises two high-performance AC2200 Tri-Band Covr Points (two 5 GHz bands and one 2.4 GHz with Wi-Fi speeds of up to 866 Mbps and 400 Mbps respectively) that eliminate dead spots and provide fast Wi-Fi to homes of up to 5900 ft2.
To help ensure that connectivity is never compromised, D-Link has implemented smart roaming technology in both of these products. Smart roaming is designed to continually analyze the wireless signal strength between devices, helping to automatically connecting them to the Covr Point with the best Wi-Fi signal.
For those who prefer a wired connection for specialist devices such as Network Attached Storage (NAS), smart TVs and gaming consoles, two Gigabit Ethernet ports per Covr unit provide dependable wired performance.
“With the number of connected devices increasing in the home, capacity has become an important feature for technology providers to deliver in order to meet consumer expectations,” said Gopi Sirineni, vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies.
New Wi-Fi Routers
The new DIR-X6060 and DIR-X9000 11AX Ultra Wi-Fi Routers offer premium performance for multiple devices. The DIR-X6060 is a dual band router with combined speeds up to 6000 Mbps, and the DIR-X9000 is a tri band router with combined speeds up to 11,000 Mbps.
Featuring improved coverage and 4x more capacity over 11AC with a 1.8GHz quad-core processor that delivers higher network speed, they are the ultimate routers for simultaneous HD and 4K streaming, VR, gaming, and cloud/remote storage.
