D-Link Delivers a Whole Home Wi-Fi System that Offers all the Coverage you Need, Without Compromising Performance

CovrTM AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System blankets your entire home with fast and reliable Wi-Fi while offering a PowrZone for the most demanding Wi-Fi devices

MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 17, 2017 /CNW/ - D-Link, Canada's Leader in Home Networking, today announced the Canadian launch of the Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System (COVR-3902), the first in D-Link's new line of Covr Wi-Fi Systems. The Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System is a simple, intelligent solution that uses a high-performance router and seamless extender to create a single network with ultra-fast speeds and reliable connectivity, that can provide up to 6,000 sq. ft. of Wi-Fi coverage.

The strength of Covr lies in the AC2600 Seamless Wi-Fi Router (COVR-2600R). Some other mesh network solutions rely on multiple Wi-Fi connection points, which lack the performance of a traditional router. D-Link's Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System uses a premium AC2600 High-Power Wi-Fi Router at its core, creating a Wi-Fi "PowrZone" of blazing fast Wi-Fi, optimized to handle the bulk of your Wi-Fi activity, while the Covr Seamless Wi-Fi Extender takes care of the outer edge. This design ensures you get whole home coverage, while still having the power, speed and advanced features to handle bandwidth intensive activities like 4K streaming and gaming on multiple devices.

"Covr offers Canadians a 'best of both worlds' solution to their coverage and performance issues," said Lou Reda, President of D-Link Canada. "Covr offers all the coverage of a Wi-Fi System, without the typical compromise in speed you see from some of those low performance, multi-satellite solutions. People don't want to move to what they think is a step-up solution, only to find that, yes, their coverage is better; however, the overall Wi-Fi performance drops. Covr is a breakthrough system that addresses both needs."

The Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System is packed with high-end features. As more devices are added to Covr's network, its intuitive features take away the complexity of managing a home wireless network. Smart Steering technology works to balance the load between the 2.4 and 5GHz wireless bands, prioritizing activities and steering devices between bands as more devices connect, making sure each device has optimal performance. Covr, unlike a traditional router-extender solution, uses Smart Roaming technology to create a seamless network with a single network name (SSID) which allows users to move throughout the home while devices automatically connect to the strongest signal, eliminating the need to manually disconnect and reconnect.

The Covr AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System is simple to set up using the free D-Link Wi-Fi app or the intuitive web-based setup wizard. Additional Seamless Extenders (COVR-1300E) can be added to expand coverage in the largest of homes making the system highly scalable.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
