Ditch the Wi-Fi Extender: Why You Should Get a MeshPoint Instead

As our lives are becoming more and more connected, we rely more than ever on having access to a fast Internet connection wherever we are. Yet, when it comes to home Wi-Fi, the experience can be frustrating, such as when you’re trying to watch your favorite show – just…

The Evolution of Home Wi-Fi Part 2

Part 2: Welcome to “3-D Mesh” Home Wi-Fi In Part 1, I talked about the inspiration behind the AmpliFi router design, but you may have noticed the AmpliFi Mesh Wi-Fi system also includes unique pieces of hardware called “MeshPoints.” As proud as I am about the…

The Evolution of Home Wi-Fi

Part 1: From Apple AirPort to AmpliFi Mesh Technology Robert J. Pera Robert Pera started his career at Apple Computer, where he was a hardware engineer following M.S. and B.S. studies in Electrical Engineering. From there he went on to boot-strap Ubiquiti, providing connectivity technology bridging…

What’s Under AmpliFi’s Hood: MIMO Explained

MIMO MIMO allows multiple streams of data to be sent in parallel. Unlike other home Wi-Fi mesh systems, all AmpliFi Routers and Mesh Points use 3-stream MIMO, allowing three streams of data to be sent to a supporting device. Many argue that most client devices are…

What is Home Wi-Fi Mesh Technology?

Mesh networks have existed for quite some time. In fact, the Internet is a giant mesh network consisting of various router nodes with interconnections to each other.  Each interconnection may have different characteristics like congestion, path delay (latency), and capacity (bandwidth). Routers prioritize their paths by…
