November 19, 2018

WATERLOO, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2018--Mercku today announced that it has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for the M2 Hive Wi-Fi System in the Smart Home category. The award, which celebrates outstanding design and engineering, recognizes the M2 Hive as a leading, new smart home product.

“As consumers continue to add connected devices and build their smart homes, their attention is quickly turning to improving the quality of their Wi-Fi connections,” said Alex Qi, Co-Founder and CEO at Mercku. “Dead spots and slow speeds limit functionality and the overall smart home experience, so we tapped into cutting-edge wireless technology and design to introduce a product that consumers can rely on. Our M2 router and Hive mesh system offer consumers a powerful and consistent connection, one that boosts speeds, provides a reliable connection throughout the home, and enables a truly smart home.”

The M2 Hive Wi-Fi System was created to eliminate home connectivity issues that plague one-third of all households. Consisting of a main router and four powerful extenders, called bees, the M2 Hive produces a system that can cover up to 5,000 square feet and goes around walls, offering connection speeds that support multiple 8K streaming devices throughout a house. With its successful optimization of advanced wireless system noise reduction theory, patented WHEMS antenna and high-performing and specifically designed transceiver, the M2 Hive offers a truly decentralized mesh network solution that’s 20 percent faster than other industry-leading products.

The CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition.

Mercku’s M2 Hive Wi-Fi System will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming CES 2019.
