Mercku Brings New, Ultra-Fast Mesh Wi-Fi to IFA Ahead of Global Launch


Mercku M2 Hive will be on display at booth #173 in Hall 26

is bringing its new M2 Wi-Fi router and M2 Hive Wi-Fi system—the highest
performing router products available today—to IFA Berlin 2018. Mercku
recently shipped the first M2 Hive systems to its Indiegogo backers, who
led the campaign to 455 percent of its goal. Now the system will become
available in b8ta retail stores in 13 cities across the U.S. as well as
on Amazon and Indiegogo
in September. Mercku will demonstrate how the M2 Hive improves Wi-Fi
speed and connectivity at booth #173 in Hall 26 from August 31 to
September 5, 2018.

"Wi-Fi is the backbone for all the mobile and smart home devices on
display at IFA," said Alex Qi, Co-Founder and CEO at Mercku. "No matter
how amazing the technology, it won't work with spotty connections or
dead spots. We built the M2 Hive system's antenna, transceiver, and
internal system layout on superior, patented technology based on
ground-breaking scientific discoveries. It reduces noise and improves
transmission to offer more powerful and more reliable Wi-Fi connectivity
for smart homes around the world."

Each M2 performs 10-20 percent better than the current best-in-class
models, and twice as fast as the industry average. Its ability to
provide 3,000 square feet of coverage (depending on the layout) and
support up to 60 devices makes it ideal for the smart home as more
appliances and other devices require connectivity. Its modern,
streamlined award-winning design looks great on tables, bookshelves, and
other areas around the house.

The M2 Hive includes an M2 and four powerful extenders, aptly called
Bees, to create a system that can cover up to 5,000 square feet and goes
around walls, offering connection speeds that support multiple 8K
streaming devices throughout a house. Each Bee is light and portable and
plugs into outlets to form a strong mesh network. Set up is simple: Just
plug the M2 in and use the Bees to expand connectivity, amplify the
Wi-Fi signal, and eliminate all dead spots in a home office or
entertainment room, for example.

All configurations of your home internet can be controlled by the M2
Wi-Fi app, which shows the speed coming into and out of the router to
help pinpoint bottlenecks, and allows you to manage users with extensive
guest and parental controls. You can limit bandwidth for specific
devices using the app, so a child can't stream movies past their
bedtime, for example. You can also block devices or re-prioritize
devices as needed if one is using too much bandwidth.

With the ability to push over-the-air enhancements via the app, Mercku
will constantly improve the Wi-Fi experience with system updates to add
port forwarding, dynamic DNS, heightened security algorithms, a VPN
client, and more. In addition, a new feature will be added next month,
enabling users to give guests and new devices access to the private
network without having to share the Wi-Fi password. The M2 Wi-Fi app is
available for iOS
and on the Google
Play Store
