How to distinguish routers equipped with Mesh wireless technology

With the continuous improvement of living standards, more and more families have begun to have a large-scale residential environment. At the same time, the continuous development of the network has become an indispensable part of people's lives.

Products equipped with Mesh wireless technology are designed to meet the wireless coverage of large areas. But to achieve this function, it is not to use some routers to increase the transmission power, so as to achieve the so-called wall penetration effect. Instead, the node-based deployment extension point is used to complete the connection. The router can simply determine the bandwidth usage by simply plugging in the power and connecting to the host, enabling automatic connection coverage and easily expanding the network.

The MR1200 consists of ontology routing and avatar routing. Mesh wireless technology is used to implement mesh coverage, which is different from the principle that the traditional router adopts an external expander on the market. The MR1200 body routing and the avatar routing are connected by a dedicated 5 GHz independent band, which can maintain the bandwidth of the home network when the network is extended. The traditional route and expander method enables the device that accesses the expander to enjoy the bandwidth after the offloading of the ontology route, thereby affecting the speed of the Internet.

At present, some new router products on the market are also under the banner of mesh technology, but in fact it is not a real Mesh technology, so we can distinguish from the following points:

1. The router needs to have three frequency bands. In addition to the commonly used 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands for mobile devices to access the Internet, a dedicated frequency band is needed to achieve the connection between the primary route and the branch route.

2, must have Daisy Chain Topology (daisy chain) technology, the routing of the avatar needs to be connected in series, that is, the relationship of the same level, not the relationship between the superior and the lower.

3, need to have MU-MIMO, which is "multi-user multi-input and multi-out technology", equipped with this technology to enable the routing system to have more and faster access to terminal equipment.
