What is the New Wi-Fi EasyMesh Standard?

Wi-Fi EasyMesh and what to expect?

Today everyone has a need to stay connected to the internet. For that purpose, we have mobile data and Wi-Fi systems at our disposal. In cases when there is Wi-Fi, sometimes we find that we don’t get the same coverage everywhere and why would you too? The closer you are to a router the better the Wi-Fi. That’s where mesh Wi-Fi s come in.

Wi-Fi EasyMesh allows you to get the same coverage no matter where you are in the vicinity of a router. A mesh Wi-Fi system is where you connect devices or routers from the same manufacturer to get the same reception throughout the place irrespective of where you are in relation to a router. What happens when you want to use different manufacturers devices to create one mesh? That’s where Wi-Fi EasyMesh steps in.

What is Wi-Fi EasyMesh? 

Wi-Fi EasyMesh is a mesh system where you can connect any manufacturer’s hardware in the house together to get Wi-Fi throughout a space.

Mesh systems allow you to get strong Wi-Fi throughout a space no matter where you are in relation to a router. You may think why not use an extender then?

You can always use an extender but setup is problematic and they often have a different name to your actual router. They come with the suffix SSID. But under mesh systems that is not there.

With mesh systems you connect to the closest device that gives you the best connection and you get Wi-Fi all under one name itself.

Why Wi-Fi EasyMesh is Better? 

With any mesh system you have to get hardware from one manufacturer itself. If you’re already using linksys then you have to get hardware from linksys itself. Where as in Wi-Fi EasyMesh, that is not required. You will be able to use hardware from any manufacturer to set up your mesh system.

Wi-Fi EasyMesh is a standard developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to allow users set up a mesh network using various manufacturer’s hardware and not just one.

Under Wi-Fi EasyMesh standard, one unit becomes the controller and the rest are all agents. So, if manufacturers decided to adopt this system then you could use one manufacturers hardware with another. For example, you could use Google Wi-Fi with Linksys to create your Wi-Fi EasyMesh system.

Why Manufacturers do not like Wi-Fi EasyMesh? 

Manufacturers are not so ready to adopt Wi-Fi EasyMesh as yet and here is why.

The main reason has to do with manufacturers wanting people to use all of their hardware itself. If you were to use Wi-Fi EasyMesh instead, then you could use two or more different manufacturers hardware to create your Wi-Fi EasyMesh system. This will affect their bottom line.

The next point to note with Wi-Fi EasyMesh is that if you use devices form different manufacturers, then upgrading will be a problem. Just think about it, if one manufacturer updates his hardware and others do not, then you have to wait till all manufacturers update all their hardware to update your Wi-Fi EasyMesh.

Joshua Topolsky - Engadget

Engadget for the message is clear, the iPad 2, with changes in design and new performance, is already ahead of the competition, but is it that this model is worth it for those who have already an iPad, and can he win newcomers to the shelves?

The endowment in memory (512 MB where competitors are going to put 1 GB) left on his hunger Topolsky, provided it did not identify any problems using the fact that quantity. Same comment on the definition unchanged from the screen, it does not serve the iPad but with e-books would have improved the comfort of reading (especially when one has got used to the iPhone 4, ndr).

The new speaker and the new location produce a cleaner sound, but nothing inherently better than the previous model.

"The performance of this processor and graphics tablet is impressive. The iPad 2 gave excellent results, whatever we do with the games and applications drawing on the graphics seem to display more frames per second, even when using software that instructed the processor as GarageBand, it has rarely (if ever) gave the impression of being at the sentence. "

The battery life is excellent, according to the site. Their iPad was not plugged in for almost five days while he was solicited on 3G, Wi-Fi, GarageBand, mail, video, photos, etc.. And when the reload, it still showed 30% of reserves. On the video playback, Engadget has found roughly the same score as the Wall Street Journal, with 10:26, two hours longer than the Xoom.

Walt Mossberg - Wall Street Journal

"Although this is an evolution rather than revolutions as the first model, the changes made by Apple are generally pleasant and positive, the device worked well. For most average users not techies, I recommend against many competing tablets I have tested so far, especially with entry-level price remains attractive. "

"Placed on a table between the old and the iPad, Motorola XOOM, the iPad 2 gives them an air puffy. Its surface is not even at the height of the side buttons of the first model. And although the weight difference is not huge (601 g against 680 g on the model Wi-Fi, ndr), Mossberg has still found a significant improvement when taking in hand the iPad 2.

Same comment as regards the speed of operation, no major differences, but clearly discernible gain, applications will launch a little faster and the whole is very reactive "It has never crashed during my tests, contrary all tablets Android that I tested. Given other tests, Mossberg was probably not too forced on the new iMovie and GarageBand, more prone to crashes.

Some items are subject to criticism, and are found in most reviews. "His camera takes mediocre pictures" If the video quality is considered "decent" Mossberg that Apple offers regrets cameras "disappointing" when it includes new applications and photo opts for quality.

On autonomy, it has not found the score of the previous model. A little over 10 hours cons iPad 11.30 with a continuous play of video, with Wi-Fi and 3G active and screen brightness at 75% Consolation Xoom on the same test takes less than iPad 2. But he could hold his office for 48 iPad using various applications (Mail, books, FaceTime, Twitter, Safari, etc.).

Also a critique on the new design, flatter and more rounded edges that make it a little trickier connecting accessory. Nevertheless it is to his taste for the best tablet on the market for the average user.
