The Evolution of Home Wi-Fi
by Robert Pera
Part 2: Welcome to “3-D Mesh” Home Wi-Fi
In Part 1, I talked about the inspiration behind the AmpliFi router design, but you may have noticed the AmpliFi Mesh Wi-Fi system also includes unique pieces of hardware called “MeshPoints.”
As proud as I am about the AmpliFi router, I believe the MeshPoint is the star of the platform. The design represents the ultimate example of form meeting function, powering complete ubiquitous Wi-Fi coverage in any home, including multi-story homes. In other words, MeshPoints were designed to expand coverage in the horizontal plane (one floor) and in the vertical plane (across multiple floors) — achieving three-dimensional or “3-D Mesh” home Wi-Fi coverage.
