We have come a long way from just having a simple internet connection in the home or office. A single connection that couldn't be shared, requiring a phone line and the process of dialing out. But as time progressed and with the eventual introduction of high-speed internet, there would be an evolution in the way it was delivered to devices in the home, going from hard-wired lines to wireless. For most, that meant using the equipment that was made available by the service provider. While this single wireless router usually got the job done for most, there was always room for better.
As time progressed, routers capable of handling more speed and offering better range were made available that didn't cost an arm and a leg. While this is all well and good, sometimes there is the need for more than just a single router, a solution that can blanket an area to provide the best service no matter what corner of the home or office you may be. In recent times, mesh networks have started to gain traction, mainly for their ease of use, and D-Link has now tossed its hat into the arena by releasing its Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System.
The Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System is comprised of three parts: the Covr AC 2600 router and two Covr AC1300 range extenders. By creating a network of devices, the system can cover more ground and also close coverage gaps that might exist by just having a single router. Unlike traditional range extender solutions, the D-Link system will only have one network name out of the box, making it seamless for connected devices to roam around. Naturally, every home or office solution is different, but Covr can expand to support up to 6,000 square feet.
