What is mesh Wi-Fi?

A wireless mesh network (WMN) is a type of wireless network that uses multiple routers to extend the coverage area. Unlike a traditional wireless network, which typically has one router that covers a limited area, a mesh wi-fi system can cover a much larger area by placing multiple routers throughout the home or office. The routers are connected wirelessly, and each router rebroadcasts the signal from the other routers, creating a “mesh” of coverage. Mesh wi-fi systems are becoming increasingly popular as they offer better coverage than traditional wireless networks. One advantage of mesh wi-fi systems is that they can be easily expanded by adding additional routers. Another advantage is that they offer redundancy, meaning if one router fails, the other routers can continue to provide


What is dual-band Wi-FI?

Dual-band Wi-Fi is a type of wireless connection that uses two different frequency bands to connect devices to the internet. The two bands are typically 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Most routers are dual-band, which means they can broadcast on both frequencies. Dual-band Wi-Fi is faster and more reliable than single-band Wi-Fi because it has more available bandwidth. It’s also less likely to experience interference from other household devices, like microwave ovens and cordless phones.

What is MU-MIMO?

MU-MIMO stands for “multi-user, multiple input, multiple output.” Using multiple antennas allows communication with multiple devices at the same time. This is a big improvement over traditional WiFi routers, which can only communicate with one device at a time. MU-MIMO is especially beneficial in households with many devices that are all trying to connect to the internet at the same time. The Guardian features 2×2 MU-MIMO.
