The All New TP-Link OneMeshTM Line -- Flexible and Cost Effective
TP-Link OneMesh is a new whole-home WiFi solution that allows users to easily and cost-effectively create a powerful home network without replacing existing devices or purchasing a whole new WiFi ecosystem. While typical whole home WiFi systems are viewed as expensive by most consumers, OneMesh technology allows TP-Link router users to enjoy the mesh experience by simply upgrading their router’s firmware or adding a OneMesh WiFi range extender to their existing devices**. OneMesh will be offered alongside all TP-Link small office and home office product lines, including wireless routers, range extenders, XDSL, 3G/4G routers, powerline adapters with seamless roaming, adaptive path selection, band steering and centralized management features.
The new AC1200 dual band RE300 WiFi repeater will be the first OneMesh range extender to market in April 2019, featuring up to 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps at 5 GHz. With new OneMeshtechnology, the RE300 will work with the Archer C7/Archer A7 (with the OneMesh firmware upgrade in April) to create a flexible and cost-effective mesh WiFi solution for your home. More and more products will support OneMesh based on further development in the near future.
Deco X10 – All New AX2700 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System
TP-Link is also introducing the Deco X10 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System, its first AX Mesh product to the market. Featuring Mesh technology overlaid with AX speeds, the Deco X10 is designed to provide blistering AX2700 tri-band speeds to every corner of your home with a strong and stable backhaul up to 1.95 Gbps***. The combination of AX and Mesh technology makes it the perfect choice for homes that want a network with corner to corner coverage for a high number of devices with less interference.
“We are extremely proud to roll out more whole home mesh networking solutions to our customers,” said Louis Liu, CEO at TP-Link USA. “Especially with the OneMesh, TP-Link is providing a flexible and cost-effective way for existing and future TP-Link traditional router users to easily upgrade to whole home mesh WiFi.”
Today’s announcement rounds out TP-Link’s current whole home mesh offerings, including the Deco M9 Plus tri-band Mesh WiFi router, which features AC2200 speeds and tri-band WiFi with dedicated backhaul to deliver fast, dependable connections to more than 100 devices throughout your entire home while doubling as a smart home hub for your IoT devices.
