The Internet is like oxygen to people who work or get entertained online for most of the part of their day. With the growing reliance on the internet, the requirement for a potent internet connection is becoming crucial and for large premises, say offices or hospitals, wireless internet connections make the most sense. Especially if you don't want to get stuck in the tangle of large wires.

Wireless whole-home systems are the modern and useful solution to all issues related to the internet connection which provide services around a large area and they perform commendably when it comes to performance. Products such as Google WiFi, Netgear and Linksys Velop are widely used and serve the purpose well.

 

However, these setups have their own shortcomings which may put a hindrance to your lifeline - Data connection. In Wi-Fi connections, the signals may get obstructed due to number of concrete walls or several floors in premises. These factors considerably affect the quality of signals. Thus, the main concern here is performance and how to get the best of it.

For tackling these issues in a smarter way, AiMesh is the recent development in the field of WiFi networks which utilises a different approach in the whole home coverage WiFi category.

 

A Mesh creates a network of several routers all of which are connected to a single main router. The secondary routers or nodes can be placed at different locations in a building. All the routers interconnected within the mesh have the same SSID, on contrary to the conventional setups, and this is what helps AiMesh in delivering more continuity in the network.

When it comes to portable systems such as smartphones and laptops, while moving them around within a building, the connection may get distorted owing to the need to change link with the different routers. Sytems falling in the AiMesh category execute this interchange in a smoother way. Moreover, due to the employment of intelligent working mechanism, it automatically detects if a router fails and puts any other router to work, which may be in range and operational.

 

When it comes to brands which are known to be the leaders of this technology, ASUS has a strong foothold in the territory. ASUS provides a wide range of options of AiMesh routers which work on 2.4GHz and 5GHz and are said to deliver good upload and download speed along with optimum network stability. Notably, users who already have ASUS routers employed get the facility to connect new routers without too much of hassle of reconfiguration. For configuring and connecting routers, ASUS' dedicated software is provided.

The router models offered by ASUS include RT-AC66U B1, RT-AC68U, RT-AC88U, RT-AC5300 and GT-AC5300 and with prices such as Rs 8,968, Rs 12,036, Rs 20,650, Rs 22,892 and Rs 27,612 respectively. For gamers or those who require an undisturbed internet connection, ASUS' AiMesh could be the solution looking at the performance the company claims to deliver. According to ASUS, the AiMesh delivers the speed of up to 2Gb/s and if that is so, this should make for the perfect setup for lightning fast uploading and downloading tasks.
