Xiaomi has revealed its first mesh router in the home country, China. It is named MiWiFi and it allows users to create a mesh network of wireless, wireline or Gigabit Ethernet networks. It comes with a total of four amplifiers, across wireless and wireline networking, while also being able to create a basic mesh network, claiming speeds going up to 2,567 Mbps. Even though it is not available for commercial use right away, it will be launched after it goes through a successful round of beta testing. This is also why a price tag has not been set for the ‘first of it’s kind’ product.
The physical appearance of MiWiFi is a sleek, smooth cylinder with a power button on a side. The router switches on with an LED ring around it. Currently, it has been made known that the router is white in color and has four amplifiers. This set comprises of two independent signal amplifiers of frequency 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz, a power amplifier which enhances the signal transmission power as well as a low noise amplifier which is used to improve signal reception sensitivity. Furthermore, it also supports three gigabit Ethernet ports on the board which is used to connect to the set-top box of the Internet provider. When one port is connected to the device, the other port mechanically functions as LAN ports. Overall, the MiWiFi is made to optimize user experience.
Users can easily configure the Xiaomi MiWiFi device with the help of the adjacent app on their respective phones. Xiaomi even claims that the strength and transmission range of the signal is so strong that it can easily penetrate through walls as well.
This announcement comes on the heels of the launch of Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India.
