Wi-Fi Vendors Announced More Residential Wi-Fi Mesh Systems at CES


Wi-Fi device makers, including ASUS, D-Link, Linksys, and Netgear, made announcements of new versions of residential Wi-Fi mesh systems at CES 2018. ASUS announced Lyra Trio, a dual-band Wi-Fi mesh system with three antennae. D-Link announced a new Wi-Fi mesh system with a trio of router packages, and Linksys announced a new Wi-Fi mesh router that is cheaper than its existing Wi-Fi Velop AC2200, tri-band Wi-Fi mesh system. Netgear announced the outdoor satellite Orbi mesh system.

Residential Wi-Fi mesh systems are wireless access points that coordinate with each other using the same SSID, allowing end-user devices to seamlessly switch from one access point to another. They were first introduced in 2015 by brands such as eero and Luma, targeting the retail market. Many Wi-Fi equipment vendors have now added Wi-Fi mesh systems to their residential Wi-Fi products, targeting both retail and service provider channels.
