Touted to cover up to 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, Tenda’s new Nova Mesh Wi-Fi System is the latest of several wireless home networking products that incorporate MU-MIMO, beamforming, Wi-Fi roaming, and mesh networking, all in a single package.
Composed of three wireless units, Nova comes pre-paired for easier installation and quick deployments. Tenda says the product supports 802.11r and 802.11v for fast roaming and is based on the 802.11s mesh standard. Tenda's announcement doesn't state a Wi-Fi class, most likely AC1200 or AC1300, nor does it say whether each node has two or three Wi-Fi radios.
Tenda's Nova will start shipping Oct 30 with a list price of $229.99 through partnerships with brick and mortar retailers like Best Buy and Walmart, as well as the usual online stores.
