360 WiFi is designed so that you can “set it and forget it.” The key parts of the system are your Quantum Fiber modem and a series of linked pods. The pods, also called nodes or access points, are small devices placed throughout your space. These devices work together to blanket your home or small business with a single WiFi network (called a mesh network).
One WiFi pod is placed close to the modem, and the others are spread out in different rooms or throughout your space. You may have either plug-in or free-standing pods, but they function in the same way. Using smart, cloud-based software, the pods route and re-route where and how each of your devices connects with your WiFi. As your household or business’s network needs change, it’s simple to add or rearrange pods.
Because mesh systems are effective at giving consistent coverage, some people use them for hard-to-reach areas like garages, basements, and outdoor spaces. They are also effective when there isn’t a central location for a single WiFi router, or if the area that needs to be covered is larger than 2,500 square feet. Even if your space isn’t that large, mesh systems can be used in smaller areas to increase the range of 5 GHz WiFi frequency coverage for faster speeds.
