Link's new Wi-Fi 6e mesh routers look lightning fast

Link's new Wi-Fi 6e mesh routers look lightning fast”

For a couple of years, Wi-Fi 6 was hyped as the solution to wireless networks that had become over-crowded with smartphones, computers, and countless smart home devices all demanding their slice of bandwidth. That harnesses the power of the 6.0 GHz band that the FCC opened up last spring and can now be used by networking companies for better bandwidth and lower latency. OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology further ensure the most efficient Wi-Fi connection.

TP-Link has not announced release date or pricing details at this time; apart from that, it will be available sometime in 2021. However, if a particular desktop or laptop enables Wi-Fi 5, the adapter will be compatible with it.

However, this device still gains the support for Wi-Fi 6 which produces faster speeds and the latest features so there is still a big upside. These include Deco X90 which is an AX6600 mesh router with a tri-band design featuring a 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands. In its latest iteration, Linksys Aware supports third-party stationary Wi-Fi connected devices such as Wemo smart plugs and Belkin smart speakers to expand motion-sensing coverage capabilities and strengthen home security. Deco Voice X20 also supports Alexa calling, messaging, and announcements (ACM), which expands the range of interactions between Deco units or with other Alexa built-in devices. TP-Link says the system uses artificial intelligence to learn your network environment and provide ideal Wi-Fi for your home. Plume won the Wi-Fi NOW Awards for Best In-Home Wi-Fi Solution and Best Service Provider Wi-Fi Solution at the 2020 Wi-Fi NOW Awards Gala on December 9, 2020. The Archer AX96 and Archer AX206 are both tri-band routers, but because they aren't mesh systems, that 6GHz band is free to connect with individual devices. Plume has during the past couple of years been probably the fastest growing startup in the smart home space and is easily one of the most innovative as well as most strategically adept tech startups in existence today.

The higher-end Archer AX206 router also supports Wi-Fi 6E and is equipped with two 10 Gbps ports, enabling ultra-fast 10G networking. These include routers capable of transmitting in the 6GHz band and one with in-build Alexa voice functionality.

If 2.4 GHz was the paved suburban road leading to your house while 5 GHz was the major double-lane thoroughfare that takes you downtown, Wi-Fi 6E will introduce a new 6 GHz band that's the equivalent of a massive multi-lane highway allowing many devices to operate at maximum speed at the same time. It supports download speeds of up to 5Gbps and works with Deco mesh technology.
