TP-Link Combines Two Wireless Technologies in One Device: Whole Home Wi-Fi and Powerline

TP-Link Canada has announced the availability of Deco P7, a whole home hybrid Mesh wireless system in Canada. The Deco P7 supports powerline connection, aimed at providing stable Wi-Fi everywhere in the building.

Dual-band AC1300 Wi-Fi and AV600 powerline connections combine to create a seamless, fast whole home network. Powerline backhaul allows data to move through walls and other structures without losing transmission strength, thus eliminating weak signal areas. Users can enjoy fast, secure Wi-Fi for over 100 connected devices with Deco P7. The Deco P7 comes with TP-Link HomeCare which includes robust Parental Controls, dynamic Antivirus and traffic-optimizing Quality of Service (QoS) features, helping homeowners create a personalized and secure family network. The Deco P7 solves many wireless issues in the home.

Spotty Wi-Fi

The Deco units connect to each other to create a network system for the entire home. Having a network system eliminates weak signal areas and dead zones by placing units near hard-to-reach areas or by providing multiple access units for wireless devices to connect to. The Deco P7 operates on the IEEE 802.11r/k/v specifications for a truly seamless roaming experience.

Powerline Connection

Powerline technology uses the building’s electrical wiring to create stronger connections between Deco units. Wi-Fi integrated with powerline allows for link aggregation and gives the ability to boost bandwidth effectively. Backhaul bandwidth is improved by up to 60% more in the hybrid Wi-Fi system compared to a standard system without Powerline capability. No restrictions from thick walls or long distances, the Deco P7 can even reach as far as the mudroom or backyard.

Cyberthreat Protection

With advanced HomeCareTM in partnership with Trend Micro, the Deco P7 is one of the most secure Mesh Wi-Fi systems in the market. In addition to parental controls and QoS, HomeCare protects every connected device on the network from outside malware and hackers. Malicious site blocking takes the extra step of preventing users from accessing malicious websites. Live cyberthreat preventions are updated regularly with HomeCare.

Connects More Devices

Beneath the stylish exterior is a Qualcomm Quad-core CPU, giving Deco P7 the processing power to support over 100 devices. 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO technology and AC1300 dual-band speed provide lag-free connections, ensuring a smooth gaming and 4K streaming experience simultaneously. Multiple applications are handled with ease to deliver smooth and stable Wi-Fi for every device in the home.

Simple Onboarding

The Deco app provides clear onboarding instructions with visual aids, making setup fast and easy. Remote network management is also available through the Deco app such as limiting and monitoring internet use, pausing internet and setting up a guest network.
