D-Link just announced a new home networking product that it said will eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots and the need for multiple in-home networks. The D-Link Covr AC3900 Wi-Fi System, available now, uses a high-performance router and "seamless" network extenders to create a single network with ultra-fast speeds and reliable connectivity, D-Link said in a statement. Between the AC2600 router that serves as the core of the system and an included extender kit, consumers will have up to 6,000 square feet of coverage for their in-home Wi-Fi network.
D-Link explained that, unlike other mesh network products that rely on multiple access points throughout the home, the Covr system uses the powerful core router to create a "PowerZone" where users need the strongest Wi-Fi signal. That router provides connection speeds that are two-times faster than its competitors, according to D-Link, as well as advanced features to handle bandwidth intensive activities like streaming 4K video content, and lag-free gaming on multiple devices.
“Today’s Wi-Fi users are continually adding devices to their network and pushing its limits with high bandwidth activities like streaming 4K content and online gaming. With Covr, we wanted to provide a solution that could not only handle multiple devices streaming, gaming and surfing all at once, but also give users wall-to-wall coverage without any Wi-Fi dead spots,” Oscar Reyes, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, said in a statement emailed to Dealerscope. “Covr provides one seamless, high-powered network for a simple, user-friendly whole home Wi-Fi Solution.”
