The two-node Covr-2202 tri-band Wi-Fi system, announced in 2018’s CES, has finally been released. The new AC2200 Wi-Fi system is a consumer mesh Wi-Fi product that includes Smart Roaming for seamless transitions between nodes using a single SSID, and Smart Steering that lets devices use the best possible band available.
Using built-in vertical and horizontal antennas, the Covr-2202 tri-band system boosts wireless performance by using its 2.4 GHz band and one of its 5 GHz bands for wireless devices, while using the remaining 5GHz band for backhaul communication between the two Wi-Fi system nodes.
Aside from a D-Link touted 6,000 square foot range, the Covr-2202 also includes MU-MIMO, parental controls, built-in compatibility for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, an app-based management interface (iOS and Android), DFS channel enablement, and interoperability with other routers and gateways.
Available now, D-Link's 2-Pack COVR-2202 Tri-Band Whole Home Wi-Fi System is priced at $299.99.
