(Pocket-lint) - Contemporary life hinges upon high network connectivity. We need high-speed, seamless network for Zoom meetings, work from home purposes, streaming, gaming, and watching 4K movies. Because of these factors, we have an increasing need for speed — most homes now contain multiple WiFi devices in different rooms. The importance of stable and fast WiFi cannot be understated.
Devolo, a German company known for producing world-renowned smart networking solutions, has now developed the Magic 2 WiFi 6, combining WiFi 6 with cutting-edge Powerline technology. This WiFi 6 device can take your Powerline speed up to 2,400 Mbps, with a typical WiFi performance of up to 1,800 Mbps, making it one of the fastest and most advanced WiFi network systems available.
Thanks to the state-of-the-art Powerline technology, Devolo Magic 2 WiFi 6 effectively takes your home network to the next level!
The most powerful WiFi standard available
Devolo Magic 2 works with the most powerful WiFi standard available currently, WiFi 6, while still supporting older WiFi standards. It also uses the OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access) feature to use the available frequencies more efficiently, thus allowing more applications to communicate on the same channel. This feature essentially makes more bandwidth available for each data stream.
A tightly meshed WiFi for optimal communication
Devolo Magic 2 is a mesh WiFi consisting of multiple WiFi hotspots, making communications between multiple devices a lot more seamless and efficient. Thanks to Access Point Steering, the mesh network ensures the user’s device is always connected to the strongest point in the mesh network when they’re moving about the house, thus ensuring they never have weak connection.
Furthermore, Magic 2 also includes a Band Steering feature, because of which the user’s device automatically steers to the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency band. You don’t have to change the frequency band yourself, and it doesn’t affect your network connection. As such, Magic 2 WiFi 6 is geared to offer the most seamless and non-disruptive network connections possible.
Turn any power socket into an internet access point
Devolo Magic 2 is based on cutting-edge Powerline technology, which uses your home’s inbuilt power lines for internet access. Currently, obstacles like ceilings, walls, and floors can interfere with network connectivity. But the Powerline technology allows your network to get around these obstacles, thus maintaining fast and stable network connections everywhere in your home.
Furthermore, thanks to Powerline technology, Devolo Magic 2 can also turn any power socket in your home into an internet access point. Once you plug the adapter into a power socket, all other adapters plugged into power sockets within the next two minutes are automatically connected, making the setup and installation a breeze!
Easy, plug-and-play installation
As mentioned previously, you can simply connect the adapter into your available power socket, and then all other adapters into other power sockets around your home. The adapters are automatically connected to each other — you don’t need to push a single button. Once you connect the adapter to the router, your entire system is set up, and you’re ready to start browsing!
Devolo Magic 2 also comes with a convenient Home Network app that can guide you through the entire process. You have to follow the instructions on the app to set up all the devices — you can also control the guest network, parental settings, and other features from the app. As such, Magic 2 gives you complete control over your home network.
