Tri-band Wi-Fi is poised to become the new solution and enhance the speed and reliability of our connections.
Easing Congestion on Your Crowded Network
We all know how frustrating it can be when our wireless connections suddenly stop working or when our network speed suddenly drops off, for no apparent reason. When this phenomenon occurs, our phones, tablets, and computers immediately seem less valuable and we find ourselves disconnected from friends, family, and the world of information that we have come to rely upon in our daily lives.
Fortunately, we often know why this happens and, even more fortunately, there is a solution.
When Wi-Fi first became a standard fixture in homes and business around the world, it transmitted and received data on a single 2.4GHz band. This connection was relatively slow, but was compatible with almost all wireless devices and could provide satisfactory coverage and range. Eventually, the era of dual band Wi-Fi arrived, with its addition of a 5GHz band. The newly added band provided the speeds that are necessary to support for all of our favorite bandwidth-intensive online activities, such as streaming video and online gaming. Now, tri-band Wi-Fi is poised to become the new solution and enhance the speed and reliability of our connections.
The Tri-Band Revolution
Tri-band Wi-Fi combats overcrowding, and all of its unfortunate effects, by creating an additional connection on the 5GHz band, with wireless speed of up to 1300Mbps. This means that your router will simultaneously establish three separate connections, one on the 2.4 GHz band and two on the 5 GHZ band. As begin to rely on your wireless network more every day and continue to connect more wireless devices than ever before, the workload can be spread out to reduce competition and congestion.
To keep things as simple as possible and ensure that you will get the best performance from your new tri-band network, each router comes equipped with Smart Connect technology. This helps devices achieve optimal performance by assigning them to the best available channel and effectively balancing network demand.
Smart Connect helps devices run even faster by assigning them to the best available channel to balance network demand.
