D-Link COVR-1102 adds to EasyMesh options

By

D-Link's COVR-1102 AC1200 seamless mesh Wi-Fi system is one of the first products to comply with the Wi-Fi Certified EasyMesh standard.

EasyMesh specifies various capabilities that are not always part of proprietary mesh implementations. Most importantly, it allows interoperability of compliant devices from different manufacturers.

The EasyMesh design has the first node acting as the controller of the WLAN, managing the nodes which act as agents. The controller organises the network, and guides devices to connect to the best available node using the most appropriate band. Nodes can connect wirelessly or via Ethernet.

"The new COVR-1102, with its stylish, minimalist design, fits into any home or office and brings seamless mesh Wi-Fi coverage to every part of the premises," said D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon.

"With Wi-Fi Certified EasyMesh it's also simple to expand coverage at any point in the future if you need additional Wi-Fi, and of course, [it] supports the very latest in Wi-Fi security technology, WPA3."

The COVR-1102 is set up initially via the D-Link Wi-Fi app, and can be controlled by the app or via Alexa or Google Assistant. EasyMesh takes care of keeping network settings synchronised across all the nodes, even when adding a new node.

Two nodes are included in the package, and can cover up to 325 square metres according to D-Link. The network is said to be fast enough to support multiple devices performing data-intensive tasks such as simultaneous HD streaming.

The $299.95 COVR-1102 is available now direct from D-Link and from authorised D-Link partners and retailers including Big W, Bunnings, JB Hi-Fi and Officeworks.

Other EasyMesh certified devices sold in Australia include the Telstra Gen 2 Smart Wi-Fi Modem and Gen 2 Booster. The Netgear Nighthawk Mesh Wi-Fi 6 system has been announced, but is still "coming soon" according to the company.
