Review - Tenda MW5c AC1200 whole home mesh Wi-Fi system


REVIEW PROMOTION Wi-Fi is wonderful for connecting phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, home alarms, doorbells, lights and many more things. Except when it drops out, has a weak signal, or is generally unreliable. Tenda’s here to help make those problems a thing of the past and give you super-reliable Internet throughout your home.

Tenda launched in China in 1999 applying its own research and development to deliver smart, quality network products. The company expanded globally in 2007 and to Australia in 2018. Tenda’s mission is to provide the best networking solutions at the best price.

Tenda's now turned its mission towards eliminating spotty WI-Fi with its MW5c home mesh Wi-Fi system. The system includes three AC1200 mesh devices that communicate together to form a strong, seamless Wi-Fi cocoon around your home. They cover up to 300 square metres and you can put them in different rooms, or on different stories, or even in the garden shed. Helpfully, the mesh units include ethernet sockets so you can cable a device directly in, also.

The system works with gigabit Wi-Fi and includes a three-year warranty. All nodes are pre-paired which makes it simple to set up and to enhance your existing Wi-Fi network.

The MW5c is a three-pack of mesh units that supports up to 60 connected devices and six mesh nodes in total. Tenda has other models if your needs are higher or lower. The MW6 covers an area of 500 square metres, nine mesh modes and 90 connected devices, while the MW3 supports five nodes and 40 devices.

All MW5c nodes feature gigabit ports and ensure smooth streaming of 4K videos as well as RF optimisation for excellent wall-penetration performance.

iTWire found the Tenda MW5c effortless to set up and effortless to use, but genuinely providing stable and reliable Wi-Fi access in the furthest reaches of the home and yards.

You can buy it on Amazon for $179.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
