In theory, you can add as many Deco units (could be different Deco models) to your existing Deco mesh network. In actual environment, the quantity of the Deco units in a network depends on how you connect them.

 

In a pure Wi-Fi Backhaul network:

All the Deco units are connected through the Wi-Fi backhaul connection. In this case, we recommend no more than 10 Deco units in the network to ensure Wi-Fi performance. Also, we recommend no more than three hops in the networks.

Note: A hop is a trip that a data packet that is transferred from one Deco unit to another Deco unit.

 

In an Ethernet Backhaul network:

All the Deco units are connected directly through Ethernet cables or a network switch. And all the Deco units will communicate through the Ethernet connection, without the Wi-Fi Backhaul connection.

In this case, you can add as many Deco units in the network.

 

In a Hybrid network:

Some Deco units are connected through Ethernet, while others are connected through Wi-Fi. In this case, we recommend no more than three consecutive Wi-Fi hops in the network.
