D-Link A/NZ has launched its latest Covr Wi-Fi mesh system, the COVR-2202.

The new COVR-2202 High-Powered Tri-Band Seamless Wi-Fi Mesh System expands on the recently launched COVR-C1203 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Mesh System with both solutions offering scalable, mesh Wi-Fi for ultra-fast speeds and seamless coverage to the furthest reaches of a home. 

Featuring warm and contemporary designs to suit the décor of any home, both Covr models provide Smart Roaming for seamless Wi-Fi connections, as well as Smart Steering to guide devices automatically to the optimum wireless band.

The COVR-2202 was announced at CES 2018, where the solution won a CES Innovation Honouree Award.
