The Huawei Wi-Fi mesh

1 September 2020

How we use the internet and what we use it for has evolved considerably over the past few years. The internet now enables us to work from home, stream our favourite shows and even home-school the kids. But these tasks all have one thing in common – we need reliable, fast, and trustworthy Wi-Fi in order to do them effectively.

The key to having the best internet experience has consistently been dependent on the router you use. A router needs to provide sufficient coverage to every corner of your home, delivering a buffer-free experience everywhere. With this in mind, Huawei recently unveiled the Huawei Wi-Fi Mesh Solution, which provides a Wi-Fi network system that is fast, versatile and stable.

Huawei Mesh Wi-Fi is achieved by using two or more fibre routers to create a seamless network. Mesh routers capture signal more rapidly and send stronger Wi-Fi signals that can cover up to 100 m2 per router.

Conventional routers are designed to keep your device connected at all times. These routers, at times, provide limited coverage that becomes spotty the further you move away from them. The Huawei Mesh network provides coverage throughout the home and ensures a consistently strong blanket-signal in every room. The solution enables you to simultaneously connect up to 64 different devices, such as phones, tablets or notebooks, and still provide a stable connection for each device.

The high-performance antennas are broadened and foldable, which allows them to bring various Wi-Fi signals together. The Mesh automatically steers devices to the most appropriate band, based on location, distance and device type, prioritising the bolstered 5 GHz band where possible. This enables the routers to form one wireless network and ensures your devices automatically connect to the fastest and strongest frequency based on your location while moving around in your home or office.

The HUAWEI WiFi WS5200 V2 is equipped with a Huawei dual-core 800 MHz processor and twice the RAM of conventional routers, which vastly increases the performance demands of the modern user. Compared with the previous generation, the powerful CPU upgrade provides a stable connection for more devices and more services simultaneously. Three highlights of the WS5200:

1. Dual-core 800 MHz CPU for high performance. Wi-Fi performance is significantly improved compared to the previous generation. 2,4 GHz Wi-Fi is improved by 60%, and 5 GHz Wi-Fi is improved by 25%.

2. Four 5 dBi high performance antennas for better coverage.

3. Automatically connects to the best Wi-Fi frequency (2,4 GHz/5 GHz) based on to the location of the device.
