D-Link has just announced its new Covr-1100 mesh networking system, and it's one of the first EasyMesh networking systems to hit the market.

For the uninitiated, EasyMesh is a standard defined by the Wi-Fi Alliance that aims to allow mesh networking systems from different vendors to work together.

In other words, as long as a mesh networking system is EasyMesh-certified, it should work together to create a mesh networking, regardless of its brand. This prevents buyers from being locked into a particular brand or system.

The Covr-1100 is a dual-band AC1200-class mesh networking system that delivers speeds of up to 867Mbps on its 5GHz network and 300Mbps on its 2.4GHz network. D-Link says two Covr nodes can cover up to 3,500 sq. ft or 325m2.

Each Covr-1100 node also features a single Gigabit Ethernet WAN and LAN port.

The Covr-1100 was designed for easy set up with the D-Link Wi-Fi app and it will also work with Google Assistant and Alexa.

The D-Link Covr-1100 EasyMesh mesh networking system will be priced at S$159 and will be available for purchase online from mid-May on Hachi.tech, Lazada, and Shopee.

However, there will be a special pre-order promo that will run from 7 May to 10 May, so keep a lookout for that.
