The global COVID-19 pandemic is causing us all to think a little bit more about having good Internet access everywhere in our homes, as well as across our farms and ranches. For over ten years Ayrstone’s AyrMesh line of products has made it easy to have a wireless network covering whatever parts of your property you want and need.
Our “traditional” AyrMesh Hubs have sought to cover the maximum area by placing the Hubs as far apart as possible – typically between 1 and 2.5 miles. However, many customers need a denser configuration of the Hubs for wireless coverage where vehicles (and AyrMesh Cab Hubs) may not be practical.
To address that need, we are pleased to introduce the new AyrMesh Hub2x2C – a true MIMO 2×2 Ayrmesh Hub, but in a smaller, lower-power, lower-gain configuration suitable for somewhat denser WiFi installations.
“We have been hearing from a lot of our customers that they do not always want to place AyrMesh Hubs at least a mile apart” said Bill Moffitt, President of Ayrstone Productivity. “While we’re not going to compete with the big WiFi vendors in producing high-density equipment for stadiums and other very public spaces, we want to be able to offer AyrMesh Hubs that will allow farmers, ranchers, and other rural businesses to have continuous WiFi across hundreds and even thousands of acres. We are also aiming this product more at specialty growers, livestock operations, commercial nurseries, and rural homeowners.”
Along with the AyrMesh Hub2x2C, we are also announcing the new AyrMesh ReceiverC, a smaller, slightly less-powerful version of the AyrMesh Receiver, suitable for use from a few hundred feet to two miles away from an AyrMesh Hub. It can be used to bring the AyrMesh network into outbuildings or connect non-WiFi-equipped devices in the field to the AyrMesh network.
“The same customers who have wanted to have continuous coverage over a large area of farm have also wanted to include nearby outbuildings in their network. The AyrMesh ReceiverC does a better job of bringing buildings within a mile of a Hub onto the network while being easier to set up and less expensive,” said Bill Moffitt.
