D-Link unveils simplified high-speed home WiFi device
Vendor’s new Covr WiFi solution brings Ultra-fast and reliable home coverage
D-Link Corporation, a provider of small, medium and large enterprise business networking, has launched a new whole-home WiFi solution, the Covr Wi-Fi Kit (DKT-883).
According to the vendor, the Covr WiFi Kit is a simple, intelligent solution that uses a high performance router and seamless extender to create a single network with ultra-fast speeds and reliable connectivity, to the farthest reaches of a home.
While other mesh network solutions rely on multiple access points, D-Link's Covr Wi-Fi Kit (DKT-883) uses a premium router as the backbone of the wireless network. The router provides the advanced features and speed needed to power bandwidth intensive activities like 4K streaming and gaming on multiple devices. Combined with seamless extenders (DAP-1655) to cover hard to reach areas, Covr delivers a Wi-Fi signal to all areas of the home including upstairs, basements and backyards.
Sakkeer Hussain, director, Sales and Marketing Manager, D-Link Middle East and Africa (MEA), said: "D-Link's Covr technology transforms the traditional router-extender solution to an easy to use WiFi solution that eliminates the hassles of traditional WiFi while blanketing an entire home with a reliable, fast signal.
Hussain added that Covr is a breakthrough system with advanced networking features designed to address today's home Wi-Fi needs.
D-Link's line of Covr products utilise WiFi solutions with self-organising network (WiFi SON) features from Qualcomm Technologies Inc, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.
Gopi Sirineni, vice president, Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. said: "With consumer demands for better broadband experiences on the rise, it's important for OEMs and technology providers to collaborate effectively on the right challenges."
Sirineni explained that D-Link's new Covr device, armed with our WiFi SON solution, is designed to ensure consumers will have a seamless, reliable and high quality experience throughout their home.
