Wi-Fi at home is the best! But it's not so great when reception is weak in some rooms. The solution? Mesh technology, currently a hot topic in home networking. The good news is that you already have Mesh networking at home with FRITZ!.
Mesh — what is it and how does it work?
Sometimes a single Wi-Fi network is not enough for your home or office. Reception can be slower or suffer dropouts in some rooms. Mesh networking does the following: multiple devices generate multiple Wi-Fi networks, which are combined to form a single, meshed network. Conveniently, the entire Wi-Fi shares only one name and password.
With Mesh you can enjoy high speeds while surfing, streaming, gaming and more — seamlessly reaching even the furthest corners of your home, apartment or office.
Wi-Fi from S to XL
With Mesh you expand your home network to the size you need it:
Small to medium-size apartments on one floor
Medium-size apartments/houses on one to two floors
Large apartments/houses with multiple stories
FRITZ! + FRITZ! = Mesh
The hub of the Mesh network is always your FRITZ!Box. Adding more devices is easy:
FRITZ!Repeaters give you greater range.
FRITZ!Powerline devices with Wi-Fi use your home's electrical wiring as an additional data freeway.
And an additional FRITZ!Box can be used as a Mesh repeater.
The devices sync automatically – you don't have to do a thing. Changes to settings are also automatically adopted for all FRITZ! products.
