Getting Wi-Fi coverage to reach every corner of the home has always been a complex challenge. Various solutions are used (such as Wi-Fi extenders or powerline transmitters), but none is perfect. Now we know TP-Link DECO M5, a Wi-Fi system with wide coverage and antivirus security to respond to these needs.
The TP-Link DECO M5 belongs to the new generation of mesh routers, which use multiple units to bring Wi-Fi to a wider area. They are not Wi-Fi extenders, but rather create a single larger network. Therefore, the TP-Link DECO M5 is made up of 3 units with AC1300 Wi-Fi technology
In this case, design is important, and TP-Link wanted the DECO M5 to be placed anywhere in the house, in full view. Instead of the traditional, unsightly network equipment, in this case we opted for a minimalist, discreet and beautiful white design.
In addition, the TP-Link DECO M5 has malware protectionbased on Trend Micro technology. Routers already bring security layers, but in this way the user's peace of mind increases. You only have to remember the global disaster that WannaCry caused to realize the importance of this aspect.

- MU-MIMO Streaming.
- Adaptive Routing Technology improves routing for each device.

TP-Link DECO M5 will go on sale in Spain during the month of June at a price of 349 euros for the starter pack, with three units We don't know the price of the additional units, but most homes (even two-story single-family homes) should be perfectly covered with the starter pack's Wi-Fi.
Users have a new alternative to extend Wi-Fi coverage in a simple and intuitive way. TP-Link DECO M5 is based on a concept similar to Google Wi-Fi, which we have already introduced to you, and is backed by a company with many years of experience networking.
