Zyxel Communications has announced Multy X, a tri-band AC3000 whole-home WiFi Mesh System that provides WiFi coverage throughout the home. Using the app, users can implement and manage features such as parental control, guest network and Alexa voice control.

Multiple Multy X nodes work together to provide a single network that envelops homes of all sizes in reliable WiFi coverage. Devices automatically connect to the nearest Multy X node with the best signal, allowing free roaming throughout the home and optimum network performance without having to switch networks and reestablish connections.

Multy X is a tri-band solution that uses the third band for the overhead communications between nodes that robs dual-band solutions of bandwidth and reduces the overall performance of the network. It provides the full bandwidth for connected devices on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. MU-MIMO support further improves the user experience by enabling Multy X to connect and communicate with multiple devices simultaneously.

A Smartphone app makes it easy to set up and manage the whole-home Multy X WiFi network. Using the Multy X app, users can set up the network, push over-the-air firmware updates, create temporary guest WiFi access, and pause WiFi access for specific users. Voice control through Amazon Alexa service makes it easier to manage the Multy X home network.

Zyxel Multy X Whole-Home WiFi Mesh System includes two nodes and will be available across India. Single Multy X nodes for expanding the Multy X network will be available India as well. A forum dedicated to Zyxel products is provided as an added resource for Multy X users to seek or offer for timely support from peer users or Zyxel professionals.
