Meanwhile, TCL also launched a Wi-Fi Mesh system, a Wi-Fi solution that allows 4K/8K video streaming, gaming and working throughout the home with an ultra-fast and stable Wi-Fi connection, eliminating Wi-Fi dead zones. Called Linkhub, it works with existing routers to extend Wi-Fi coverage via additional Mesh routers in different areas or rooms . A set of three Mesh routers can provide Wi-Fi Coverage of up to 5,300 square feet and support more than 90 devices with a strong Wi-Fi connection. With a maximum of nine Mesh routers, the Wi-Fi system covers up to 15,000 square feet, making it suitable for small businesses or hotels.
It is similar to Huawei’s WiFi Q2 extendable router system, which is ideal for smaller homes, but the TCL option allows for a broader area to be covered.
Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, the Linkhub Wi-Fi Mesh only requires one username and password for the whole pack – as with the Huawei alternative. Users can choose from any unit of the Mesh router system based on home size and layout. Automatic synchronisation and Alexa-compatibility allows voice control to adjust the Wi-Fi settings.
Linkhub Wi-Fi Mesh AC1200 will be available in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, the United States and China in Q2 2020, starting at $199.
