Plume Superpod Three band Mesh Wifi System
Another product introduction from a mesh wifi router vendor that you might not heard it before, it introduced couple of product, Plume Pod and Plume Superpod mesh wifi system, new comer with high rated mesh wifi system in the market today.
What this product does
Plume Superpod is just like other mesh wifi system have been around in the market so far providing you easy to use single wifi name throughout the home, and is a wall-plug design instead of desktop model for easy to place without providing power outlet in different place you need to add like Velop or Orbi (Orbi also offers separate wall-plug model as the satellite).
In mesh technology in general each mesh point device delivers data stream to the other mesh point by learning which router is the best to take like normally the routers in the cloud communicate from one hob to the other hob based on the routing technology to use.
Few models of mesh wifi router use dedicated radio band as backhaul used to communicate between mesh points such as Asus Lyra, some other models don’t use dedicated backhaul just mixed for clients and mesh points use the same radio bands.
Plume Superpod is the first mesh wifi router that use different methods, it applies dynamic backhaul that selects the best available radio band automatically for best wifi performance.
Plume Superpod is designed to compete with premium class mesh wifi system with three band technology which is typically more expensive and more powerful than those two band mesh wifi system such as Asus Lyra Trio and Velop and one new product that you might not heard it before – the Meshforce m1 mesh wifi system which are two band models.
Plume Superpod is designed with three band technology with one band is used as backhaul that is selected dynamically and automatically for best performance. It operates three band radio simultaneously operating @2.4GHz and @5GHz 2×2 MIMO and @5GHz 4×4 MU-MIMO with standard 802.11b/g/n/ac radios and is based on AC3000 Gigabit WiFi (400 + 867 + 1,734 Mbps).
If you compare with the first model of Linksys Velop three band you can find that Velop 1st G is based on AC2200 (400 + 867 + 867Mbps), slightly lower total bandwidth than Plume. Velop doesn’t use dedicated backhaul for point to point communication as opposed with dynamic auto backhaul offered by Plume.
What about compared with Netgear Orbi regarding the wifi? Almost the same as Plume, the same AC3000 network segment providing three band with the same speeds. However, Orbi like Velop doesn’t use dedicated radios for backhaul.
Here is the highlights of Plume Superpod you need to know, most people testify that this product is powerful, high performance and excellent in technical support.

Plume Superpod is tagged with higher price than most mesh wifi system and as the new comer in mesh wifi router when you compare it with the other new comer in mesh router – Meshforce mesh wifi system, Plume’s price is almost twice as much as Meshforce.
As a new product when you compare with Orbi and Velop, Plume is tagged with higher price and soon like other products the price will dropped when other products introduction with better technology offered by other vendors. Click the link below to learn more detail including current price.
