Deeper Connect supports four deployment modes, making it suitable for any network environment. If you are interested in the details of each deployment mode, please read the Deeper Connect Deployment Modes Introduction below.
Deeper Connect Deployment Modes Introduction
1. Deeper Connect series products support four deployment modes.
Virtual Wire mode, Router mode, Wireless relay mode, and WiFi dongle mode
2. Why does Deeper Connect support four deployment modes?
When we first designed Deeper Connect, we wanted to provide a plug-and-play experience for users. Therefore, based on our unique IP reuse technology, we developed the Virtual Wire mode. In Virtual Wire mode, Deeper Connect can be plugged directly between the modem and router like a network cable, greatly reducing installation and difficulty of use.
However, more and more homes now use integrated modem-router devices provided by ISPs, making it impossible for Deeper Connect to plug in between the modem-router. Therefore, we have developed Router mode, allowing Deeper Connect to serve as an auxiliary router for users.
We have also designed a wireless relay mode for mobile office scenarios, allowing Deeper Connect to work in a purely wireless environment. The wireless relay mode operates by combining downstream WiFi and upstream WiFi, which is the most commonly used pure wireless deployment method.
When developing Deeper Connect Air, we considered using USB RNDIS and other protocols to replace the downstream WiFi protocol, simplify user operations, improve stability and performance. Therefore, we designed the fourth mode: WiFi dongle mode.
In theory, each Deeper Connect device can use any of the four modes, but due to the different market positioning of each product, the enabled deployment modes will also vary (Deeper Connect Pico can use three modes, while Mini and Air can only use two modes).
3. What are the four deployment modes of Deeper Connect?
Scenario: This is the simplest deployment mode suitable for home users who already have a WiFi router and modem.
Disadvantages: Not suitable for network environments where the modem and WiFi router are integrated.
Applicable products: Deeper Connect Mini, Deeper Connect Pico
Scenario: For users with integrated modem/router All-In-One at home, if Virtual Wire mode is not applicable, router mode can be used.
Advantages: It can provide an additional WiFi access point (DeeperWiFi-xxxx) for the home.
Disadvantages: To use Deeper Connect services, you need to connect to the DeeperWiFi-xxxx access.
Applicable products: Deeper Connect Mini, Deeper Connect Pico.
Scenario: It can be used in any environment with Wi-Fi, primarily designed for mobile use, such as in coffee shops and hotels.
Advantages: Suitable for outdoor use.
Disadvantages: Due to the general existence of WiFi signal interference, there is considerable jitter in network latency.
Applicable products: Deeper Connect Pico, Deeper Connect Air.
Scenario: Used as a WiFi adapter to work with a PC.
Advantages: Deeper Connect Air can be used as a USB WiFi adapter plugged into a PC, supporting Win/Mac/Linux operating systems, and does not require any driver installation. The operation is much simpler than wireless relay mode.
Disadvantages: None at present.
Applicable products: Deeper Connect Air.
