Wifi signal is the bread and cell phone signal is the butter of our lives today. For better or worse we all have are at fault to being addicted to the devices that were meant to make our lives a little bit convenient, instead we have a situation where we feel deprived in our lives without them. Anyhoo, this is not a place to dissect and analyze if this type of life style is good or bad, but instead I want to talk about how we can feed this addition more! The days when having one wifi router was enough as long as that is the place in the house you work on your laptop, phone since being on the close proximity gave you a strong signal and that is all we needed to satisfy to get good connection for those devices. But, today with a trend of folks cutting the cable and going the cordless route has made the WiFi signal a prized commodity.
You could be paying top dollars and getting a 50 GB download speed and 10 GB upload speed from your internet provider, with out a distributing network this signal can not be utilized in a home, especially homes bigger then 1000 sq ft. Homes larger then 1000 sq ft are plenty. As per this graph below, the homes are 1000 sq ft larger then the homes those were built in 1973 on an average.
an average person lives in a 1000 sq ft area now a days and if you are more then 1 person in a household then the chances are that your home is more then 1000 sq ft. This wide area requires a wide coverage and that is why those single access points from the wifi router that we are accustomed to are not going to work for future homes. This has lead to the development of what is called a mesh network. The mesh network has more then 1 Ap’s (access points) and are connected to form a web of signal to cover the whole area. When looking for a mesh network to install in the house, figure out what is the area of coverage that is needed to be covered and how many levels that need to be covered as well.
