ARRIS International announced that its VAP4641 Wireless Extender is the first product to receive Wi-Fi EasyMesh certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.

As the newest extender in ARRIS's HomeAssure whole-home Wi-Fi family, the VAP4641 is one of the most powerful, wall-plug mounted, Wi-Fi extenders available. Featuring 4x4 antennas and 802.11ac Wi-Fi capability, the VAP4641 leverages Wi-Fi EasyMesh to extend Gigabit speeds over greater distances, when paired with other Wi-Fi EasyMesh certified devices. ARRIS VAP4641 Wireless Extender is the first product to receive Wi-Fi EasyMesh certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Wi-Fi EasyMesh allows multiple access points from different vendors to work together seamlessly to deliver a unified Wi-Fi network. Devices with Wi-Fi EasyMesh are compatible with existing home networks when the service provider gateway or access point are also Wi-Fi EasyMesh compatible.

ARRIS said its HomeAssure whole-home Wi-Fi portfolio of gateways and extenders delivers on the vision of ubiquitous coverage contributing the intelligence and connectivity required in complex and varied home environments. These devices help resolve network issues before they impact users, empower consumers to optimize their home network, and enable service providers to deliver a premier Wi-Fi experience.

Larry Robinson, President, Customer Premises Equipment, ARRIS
We're proud to continue our contributions to the Wi-Fi Alliance's multi-AP specifications and Wi-Fi EasyMesh program to help service providers bring new innovations like the VAP4641 Wireless Extender to consumers.
