Wireless networks are constantly evolving, as evidenced by the different technologies and protocols that have been implemented in recent years. One of the most widely used concepts today is Mesh. There are multiple Mesh solutions and systems available on the market, but it is important to bear in mind that not all of them offer the same possibilities.

What is Reyee's Mesh wifi system and how does it work?

Reyee's Wi-Fi Mesh system is a technology that allows two or more access points (APs) to communicate wirelessly, thus reducing the amount of UTP cabling that is normally used in a Wi-Fi network infrastructure with many APs. It is possible to configure an AP as a Mesh AP and have it repeat the signal from another AP that has been wired to the network Switch or Router. The Mesh AP will be linked wirelessly and will only need to be powered.

There are two different roles within a wireless Mesh network. On the one hand, we find root APs, in which network cable has been deployed. On the other hand, Mesh APs are those that repeat the signal of a Root AP or even another Mesh AP.

Reyee's Mesh system or professional access points technology has a distinctive feature or value, AP selection algorithm. This algorithm is responsible for selecting the best AP for its signal to be repeated. To make this decision, the smart algorithm considers a large number of values such as received signal, channel usage, bandwidth and radio technology of each AP.

On the eWeb Interface (Network Master), click on the +AP button. Once done, a scan will be performed, and we will be able to add the Mesh APs to our network.

Some models, such as the RG-EW105GWT, have a physical button that can be pressed to scan and add Mesh APs.
