D-Link Launches New Covr Seamless Wi-Fi System
D-Link has unveiled its new Covr Seamless Wi-Fi System providing a MU-MIMO wireless mesh network delivering coverage of up to 465 square metres.
Its coverage is provided through its pre-paired three Covr points as well as two onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports per unit for wired connectivity where needed, D-Link says the Covr is fast enough to support multiple devices undertaking data-intensive tasks like simultaneous gaming and HD streaming.
D-Link says the Covr System has MU-MIMO Wireless AC speeds of up to 1200 Mbps with its 2×3 internal antenna configuration for maximised range and connectivity.
Covr has Smart Roaming for seamless connections, as well as Smart Steering to guide devices to the optimum wireless band. The smart roaming technology helps the Covr system continually scan the wireless signal strength to devices, automatically connecting them to the strongest signal available.
Graeme Reardon, managing director at D-Link ANZ says, “If you want seamless Wi-Fi all around your home, then look no further than Covr. Easy to install, yet brimming with smarts inside, this clever solution gives users a Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) mesh networking solution, making streaming on multiple devices all around the home a breeze.”
D-Link says Covr also ensures your entire home is covered by a single Wi-Fi network using a single network name (SSID).
Reardon says ease of setup is a key highlight of the Covr system with the three included Covr Points pre-paired to work straight out of the box, so you can simply plug them into your existing modem to get started, and enjoy high-quality, seamless Wi-Fi across your home.
Users are able to configure their network quickly and easily with the free D-Link Wi-Fi app on your Android or iOS mobile device, or by using the D-Link web-based interface.
Covr’s built-in MU-MIMO functionality sends data to multiple devices simultaneously which D-Link claims increases speed and efficiency across a home Wi-Fi network, whilst its Smart Steering will automatically connect devices to the optimal 2.4Ghz or 5GHz Wi-Fi band and even move devices between Wi-Fi bands when the network experiences congestion.
