Some people think that mesh Wi-Fi systems are only beneficial if you live in a huge house and have tons of space to cover. That used to be true, but newer systems like the just-released Nokia WiFi Beacon 1 Mesh Router Solution have benefits that extend far beyond just coverage. Nokia just announced the new Beacon 1 system on Tuesday, and it’s already available for purchase on Amazon. In addition to all the benefits normally associated with mesh systems, you also get great cutting-edge features like dual-band 2+2 MIMO wireless with AC1200 for blazing-fast speed, a self-healing feature that resolves any problems before you even know they’re there, and an intelligent monitoring feature that constantly scans for interference and adjusts your Wi-Fi channels to avoid it. Even with all that, Nokia’s new mesh system is still more affordable than comparable rival systems! Nokia Beacon 1 single-packs with one mesh router that covers up to 2,000 sq. ft. is available right now on Amazon for only $129.99, while a Nokia Beacon 1 three-pack that covers up to 6,000 sq. ft. can be had for just $299.99. That’s a great price on a great system, so definitely check it out!
