Velop is a Tri-Band modular WiFi solution from Linksys and is installed in different mesh configurations. The installation of various mesh configurations aims to provide fast and reliable WiFi to the edge of a home network.
How Velop Works?
The mesh network system contains individual nodes and each node in the Velop is a Tri-Band system. The Tri-Band AC2200 device will serve as a router, repeater, bridge, and an access point. Velop uses the three radios dynamically to determine the optimal path from the modem and “parent” node to each “child” node and aims to ensure the fastest speeds to all client devices, regardless of which node they are connected to.
Dynamic channel scanning algorithms evaluate the unique conditions of the wireless environment to select the best band (either 2.4 GHz or one of the two 5 GHz radios onboard) as well as the channels within each of the bands in order to improve performance between nodes and client devices.
Velop is powered by Qualcomm SoC and some of the salient features of the mesh WiFi system include Dynamic Tri-Band, True Modular Mesh Design, Dynamic Channel Selection, Spot Finder Technology, Airtime Prioritization, Automatic Updates, etc.
