Zyxel Communications has launched Multy X, a tri-band AC3000 whole-home WiFi Mesh system designed to provide WiFi coverage throughout the home. Company said that Multy X makes it fast and easy for users to set up and manage a high-performance WiFi network using a simple, intuitive Smartphone app. Using the app, users can easily implement and manage features such as parental control, guest network, Alexa voice control, and more.
The Multy X utilizes WiFi mesh network technology to deliver coverage throughout the home and eliminate WiFi dead spots. Multiple Multy X nodes work together to provide a single network that envelops homes of all sizes in reliable WiFi coverage. Devices automatically connect to the nearest Multy X node with the best signal, allowing free roaming throughout the home and optimum network performance without having to switch networks and reestablish connections. Unlike traditional networks that lose speed and bandwidth as they repeat WiFi signals between routers and extenders to provide connectivity throughout the home, Multy X nodes work together as a single network to deliver full bandwidth and speed to the connected devices.
Zyxel claimed that unlike dual-band mesh networking solutions, Multy X is a tri-band solution that uses the third band for the overhead communications between nodes that robs dual-band solutions of bandwidth and reduces the overall performance of the network. Multy X provides the full bandwidth for connected devices on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands to ensure maximum performance and reliability. MU-MIMO support further improves the user experience by enabling Multy X to connect and communicate with multiple devices simultaneously at the fastest possible speeds.
A simple, intuitive smartphone app makes it easy to set up and manage the whole-home Multy X WiFi network. Using the Multy X app, users can set up the network in a matter of minutes, push over-the-air firmware updates, create temporary guest WiFi access, and pause WiFi access for specific users. Voice control through Amazon Alexa service makes it even easier to manage the Multy X home network, said company.
“Multy X is all about simplicity and performance”, said Bill Su, AVP of Zyxel Smart Living Business Unit. “The elegant and simple look of Multy X enables it to blend into the home environment, but behind the sleek design is a powerful networking solution. Deep down inside, Multy X is designed to provide ease-of-use, fast and reliable performance, and seamless whole-home coverage that gives everyone a great user experience and ensures that all of the connected devices work to their potential.”
