The Deco P7 is another mesh networking system that is launching today. And what's unique about it is that it is one of the few mesh networking systems to support powerline networking. This allows it to make use of your home's power grid to communicate between nodes and transfer data.
This makes the Deco P7 ideal for homes where the layout or construction is so problematic that even traditional mesh networking systems cannot work properly. According to TP-Link using the powerline boosts backhaul bandwidth by up to 60%, which can improve overall network performance.
The Deco P7 will be priced at S$369 for a pack of three and will be available in August.
