    TP-Link’s Deco M9 Plus is a tri-band two-stream AC2200 Wi-Fi system.

    The new Deco is powered by a quad-core processor, 4 GB eMMC flash and 512 MB RAM and is designed to handle up to 4500 sq. ft. of space with maximum link rates of 400 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps at 5 GHz (x 2). The second 5 GHz radio is reserved for node-to-node wireless connection (backhaul). There are also two Ethernet ports and a USB 2.0 port that is not available for customer use.

    The system has a built-in smart home hub, managed through the Deco App (Android and iOS). The hub is said to be able to manage smart home/IoT devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and Zigbee 1.2. Amazon Alexa and IFTTT automation is also supported.

    Wireless network security for the Deco M9 Plus is provided by TP-Link’s Home Care service. Powered by Trend Micro, Home Care adds anti-virus and malware protection, malicious site blocking, parental controls, QoS as well as other protection services.

    The TP-Link Deco M9 Plus is available now as a single node ($179.99) and dual node pack ($299). A three-pack is also available, but was not priced or mentioned in the announcement.

    I was wondering when the Deco M6 would make its public debut after hitting the FCC back in September of 2017.
