TP-Link has announced the launch of the Smart Home Mesh Wi-Fi System AC2200 Deco M9 Plus. This is TP-Link’s first mesh Wi-Fi system with smart hub functionality, aimed at providing Wi-Fi that’s “Fast. Smart. Everywhere”.
The AC2200 Smart Home Mesh Wi-Fi System Deco M9 Plus is the simplest way to guarantee a strong Wi-Fi signal in every corner of your home. It can support homes of up to 4500 square feet with two Deco units. You can enjoy fast and secure Wi-Fi for over 100 connected devices. Want to control all your smart home devices with one central nexus? You can, with the Deco M9 Plus – there’s no need to buy an additional hub.
Wi-Fi Dead-Zone Killer
Deco units in different rooms work together to form one unified whole-home network to eliminate weak signal areas. Phones and tablets automatically switch to the fastest Deco as you move through your home, creating a seamless online experience. Support for IEEE 802.11r as well as 802.11k/v means roaming from one Deco to another is unnoticeable, even when you’re streaming Netflix shows.
Superior Tri-Band Speeds
The Deco M9 Plus delivers super-fast Wi-Fi to devices in every part of the home. The AC2200 Wi-Fi system transmits three separate wireless bands for combined speeds of up to 2134Mbps: one 400Mbps 2.4GHz band for surfing, online shopping and audio streaming; one high-speed 867Mbps 5GHz band for lag-free 4k streaming and gaming; and another 867Mbps 5GHz band as backhaul. Smart Connect technology automatically assigns each device to the optimum band to balance traffic and maintain fast connections.
The Deco M9 Plus utilizes a single 5GHz band as wireless backhaul when traffic is light, but can count on the other 5GHz band and the 2.4GHz band for backhaul when traffic gets heavy, delivering speeds of over 1000Mbps — ideal if you have gigabit fiber connections.
Built-In Smart Hub
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi routers, each Deco M9 Plus unit has a built-in smart hub, bringing all your smart home devices onto one platform. Deco M9 Plus is compatible with smart bulbs, lights, switches, locks, sensors, plugs, cameras and more, including TP-Link and other leading brands.
Connects Over 100 Devices
The Deco M9 Plus is powered by a Qualcomm Quad-core CPU, giving it the processing power to support over 100 devices. It does so with speeds of up to three times faster than previous generation routers.
Pricing and Availability
The TP-Link Deco M9 Plus will retail locally at SGD $369 for a Twin Pack and SGD $199 for a Single Add-on Pack. It is currently launched exclusively to Challenger Stores and will be made available at all TP-Link local retailers in mid-August 2018.
