We all depend on our home WiFi connection. Whether you like streaming your favorite shows on Netflix or
games with a console, or simply
scrolling Instagram on your phone, most Americans use the internet in their
homes every day.
The Problem with Routers
Unfortunately, many families do not experience a solid internet
connection throughout their house. Some rooms or areas might have dead-zones,
spots with low to non-existent WiFi connections within their homes. With 40
percent of Americans working from home in 2020 and many kids opting for online
learning, having a strong
and reliable WiFi connection throughout the house is more important than ever.

The Next Step in Expanding Internet Accessibility
Most homes depend on a single router to provide internet. The
farther you get from the router, the weaker the signal becomes. Internet speeds
tend to lag in rooms separated from the router by brick walls or insulated
ceilings. Homes with two or more stories are especially likely to have weaker
signals on the stories where the router is not. While extenders can help bounce
the signal from your router a little farther, they can be a nuisance and
difficult to use.
Whole-Home WiFi uses a mesh WiFi router system to blanket your
entire home with a strong WiFi signal. Whole-Home WiFi systems use two or more
access points, or nodes, within your home, which uses these two or more access
points to bounce the signal from one point to another. This gives the effect of
having multiple routers throughout your house and eliminates dead zones and lag
caused by walls and ceilings. If your home has multiple stories, you will
experience a stronger signal on all levels when you switch to the mesh router
system. With whole-home WiFi, your connection might even extend into the
backyard or garage.
Calix system is a mesh and extender all in one. The Calix system creates a mesh
network to cover your needs, and uses smart extender units that extend the
signal to a longer distance from the base unit.
