TP-Link® OneMeshTM Upgrades Home’s Network with Seamless Roaming

A flexible and cost-effective solution that eliminates dead zones, boost Wi-Fi signal and deliver whole-home coverage.

Richmond Hill, ON – June 6, 2019 – TP-Link®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products today announced the expansion of its Mesh product lineup by adding the RE300 OneMeshTM AC1200 Range Extender. TP-Link OneMesh offers consumers more choices and options to experience whole-home Wi-Fi without replacing existing networking devices or purchasing a new Wi-Fi ecosystem.

 

While most whole-home Wi-Fi systems are considered expensive by the average consumer, OneMesh allows TP-Link router users to upgrade their home Wi-Fi to Mesh technology by simply updating their router’s firmware and adding a OneMesh range extender*. OneMesh products will extend into Powerlines and be offered with TP-Link’s small office and home office product lines. The first OneMesh product available is the RE300 OneMesh AC1200 Range Extender which features up to 300 Mbps at 2.4GHz and 867 Mbps at 5GHz** and works with Archer C7/Archer A7 models (firmware upgrades are required for the router to use OneMesh).

OneMesh is a powerful technology that reliably eliminates dead zones and boosts signal strength with a single Wi-Fi network that extends to every corner of the home. Consumers no longer need to wander around in search of a stronger or faster signal. OneMesh intelligently connects mobile devices to the router or extender, whichever provides the best connection. Compatible OneMesh routers and extenders share a single Wi-Fi name so wireless users stay connected to the same network as they roam from room-to-room, enjoying uninterrupted streaming or downloading.

OneMesh ensures wireless devices are operating at top speeds with Adaptive Path Selection (APS) and Band Steering. Both technologies operate together to optimally select the fastest connection path to transfer data. TP-Link’s Mesh products have self-healing capabilities to ensure all wireless devices are always connected even if the network setup disconnects, so the Wi-Fi network is consistently stable and no dropped connections are experienced. Setup with the Tether app simplifies Wi-Fi extension onboarding and management.

“Adding the RE300 to our selection of networking products resonates with TP-Link customers,” said Ivan Li, general manager of TP-Link Canada. “Consumers benefit from significant cost-savings by getting the latest Mesh technology that solves Wi-Fi headaches by simply upgrading their existing TP-Link router at a fraction of the cost of a traditional Wi-Fi system.”
