CES is a great place for manufacturers to release new product into the wild and TP-Link has used it to release their new product line called Deco. It's a whole home Wi-Fi mesh system that helps keep your Wi-Fi coverage up-to-date with the demands of mobile devices and accessing content on the Internet.

New to this product line are the Deco M5 Router and the Deco M5 Plus Router with Powerline.



The great thing about a mesh network is the ability to ensure that all corners of your home have a good Wi-Fi signal. There isn't anything worse than having dead zones around your home because either your current Wi-Fi router is not strong enough or you cannot place it in a more central location. Creating a mesh network will allow you to ensure each corner of your home has adequate signal strength so your mobile devices do not skip a beat when they are being used online.

Ever heard of the Powerline series of networking products? The Powerline model connects those hard-to-reach places, such as a basement or perhaps a 3rd floor where concrete or more construction material will get in the way of a Wi-Fi signal. Powerline works by sending your network traffic through the existing electrical wires in your walls. It isn't as fast as a proper Ethernet wired network, but it allows you to quickly bring a network connection into a room without putting holes in your walls to run Ethernet cable. Combine the Powerline with the Deco M5 Router and you're whole house will have more than adequate Wi-Fi coverage!

Currently there is not a whole lot out on the market that will create a Wi-Fi mesh network right out of the box. One company that does have one currently available is Linksys with their Velop Whole-Home Mesh Wi-Fi System. It be interesting to see how it stacks up against this newest product line from TP-Link.
