Eero was one of the first router manufacturers to bring mesh Wi-Fi networks into the home. Now the company is preparing to ship its second-generation Eero WiFi System, which features Thread radios for controlling smart home devices, and a new type of access point that plugs directly into an AC outlet.

The second-gen Eero router uses the same form factor as the original, but it can operate on three frequency bands simultaneously (splitting the available channels on the 5GHz frequency band in two while also using the 2.4GHz band). As with the first-gen product, Eero’s TrueMesh software dynamically changes the frequencies its network nodes operate on and automatically switches client devices between access points to deliver the best performance. Eero says it now not only has the smallest tri-band access point on the market, but that it offers twice the performance of its first-gen product.
