Telstra has announced the launch of world’s first Wi-Fi Easy Mesh standard called the Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster 2.0, a new solution for a superior in-home Wi-Fi network experience.
The Wi-Fi EasyMesh – certified Gen 2 Booster is specifically designed to work together with the Telstra Smart Modem 2.0 to improve in-home Wi-Fi. With a simple two button setup, a single booster will pair directly to the modem and boost wireless coverage, helping to reduce or resolve black spots and extending wireless coverage from the modem’s base.
The Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster 2.0 helps deliver strong coverage networks that intelligently manage resources with minimal user intervention. The technology is highly scalable, enabling users to easily add wireless access points where needed and with both the booster and the modem having the EasyMesh technology it means better coverage, reduced dropouts and an improved experience for customers.
This means smartphones and other wireless devices in the home will automatically connect to a Wi-Fi connection as customers move about their home, which is becoming increasingly important as streaming services become more mainstream in the home.
Telstra Connected Home & Business Executive, Michele Garra said, “Telstra is not only the first Australian telco but also the first telco in the world to have the global Wi-Fi EasyMesh standard accreditation on both a modem and extender device. Now, our customers can get even better Wi-Fi coverage in their home or small office, and can take steps to reduce or resolve black spots in those hard-to-reach places.”
“Where previously customers would have had to plug an additional booster into their modem, the mesh technology built into the Telstra Smart Modem 2.0 means those customers will usually only need to purchase one booster device to extend their wireless signal in their home or office. It’s a simpler and less cluttered solution for customers with Wi-Fi issues,” added Garra.
The Telstra Smart Modem and the Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster are just two of many different technologies and devices introduced to create a smarter, stronger network for homes around Australia.
