Wireless mesh networking is all the rage right now. Doing away, as it does, with separately named extenders and secondary networks that require manual reconnections as you go out of range. Instead, they offer multiple nodes throughout the home or small office all with the same name and with smart roaming to always stay connected with the closest unit.
D-Link has extended the COVR AC1200 Seamless Mesh Wi-Fi System range, one of the world's first Wi-Fi Certified EasyMesh™ home and home office mesh systems, to now offer a three unit pack (COVR-1103), as well as a single add-on unit (COVR-1100). Adding these new options gives any user the flexibility to cover any home or home office with D-Link's OVR mesh Wi-Fi solution.
With high-speed AC1200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi and 11ac Wave 2 with MU-MIMO, the COVR-1100 and COVR-1103 like the COVR-1102 before them are fast enough to support multiple devices undertaking everyday data-intensive tasks like HD streaming and video chats simultaneously. The COVR-1100 is perfect if you're just starting out in whole home networking or have a smaller space. The COVR-1102 two-pack gives you more reach and coverage up to 325 square metres and the COVR-1103 three-pack truly blankets any home with up to 464 square metres of seamless Wi-Fi.
"Hey Google, disable the COVR parental controls." Yes, the latest COVR units' app will work with Google Assistant and also with Alexa (Siri is currently silenced). Note, we haven't actually tested that command, we don't yet have a COVR 1103 review unit, but it is indicative of the intended commands.
All three have profile-based Parental Controls for setting boundaries online. They are simple to set-up with the D-Link Wi-Fi App and Quick VPN capabilities allows you securely connect to a remote network.
COVR's Quality of Service (QoS) prioritises network traffic to minimise the impact of limited bandwidth and its Triple Play VLAN support allows ISPs to provide multiple services with just one router.
COVR-1100, COVR-1102 and COVR-1103 all also support WPA3, which brings the latest standard for wireless encryption to individual users.
