Plume is powered by the cloud, which means it can adapt to real life in real-time, ensuring that every room and every device has reliable and fast connection now and into the future. Simply order the number of Pods you need for your home (one for every room plus connecting space) and connect one of the Pods to your modem by Ethernet cable, plug the rest of the Pods around your home, and go through the quick set-up process. The setup requires you to download the Plume App on your iOS or Android smartphone.
You can also add Plume to an existing home network setup by connecting a Pod to an existing router by Ethernet cable.
Pod to Pod Communication
Plume Pods connect wirelessly with each other using our patented Adaptive WiFi™ technology, drastically increasing the signal strength and quality of your Wi-Fi.
Different Pods in the same home can utilize multiple Wi-Fi channels and bands to communicate. The ability to switch between different bands and channels on a path eliminates congestion as your Wi-Fi needs vary based on your applications and devices. This intelligence behind the decision making algorithms is enabled by Plume’s cloud architecture.
Each Plume Pod also has an Ethernet port so if you have Ethernet cabling throughout your home, connecting the Plume Pods together with a switch will also provide enhanced wired performance.
Note that Plume Pods do not use Ethernet over Power Line for communication (PLC).
