TP-Link has today announced the launch of the Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System with a new appearance—Deco M4, the newest addition to the brand’s lineup of mesh solutions. 38Unlike the previous disc-shaped products (Deco M9 Plus, Deco P7 and Deco M5), Deco M4 is an affordable column-shaped product that provides the AC1200 whole home mesh Wi-Fi, which is ideal for medium houses.
Multiple units are able to seamlessly work together to create a home network unlike any seen before. Currently available as a two-unit multi-pack, the Deco M4 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi system may be purchased from leading entertainment and lifestyle retailers and other retailers both online and in stores.
Deco M4 is comprised of a system of two units that can be customized to fit Wi-Fi coverage needs to up to 2,800 square feet. With additional units, the Deco M4 system can be easily scaled up to accommodate even larger spaces. Phones and tablets automatically switch to the fastest Deco as you move through your home, creating a truly seamless online experience.
The dual-band AC1200 system is capable of throughput speeds of 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 867Mbps on the 5GHz band—and it supports MU-MIMO data streaming. Deco M4 utilizes Adaptive Path Selection (APS) to ensure the network is always operating at top speeds, quickly identifying and selecting the fastest path for devices to connect to the network. With network speeds three times faster than the previous generation routers, thanks to 802.11ac wireless technology, Deco can provide lag-free connections to up to 100 devices.
The Deco app walks you through every step with clear directions and simple visuals, making setup fast and easy. It also lets you completely control and manage your network from the palm of your hand. You can easily limit and monitor internet use and even pause the internet for an individual family member or the entire home.
Simple, intuitive parental controls allow you to manage and monitor access of network services for children by time allowance, even when you’re not home. Monthly usage reports are automatically sent to your phone to keep you apprised of activity on your network.
Deco M4 is capable of acting as a router or access point now. According to relevant sources, range extender mode will be available in a Deco M4 in the next published firmware version. Just configure the mode you need for your network demands.
