Introduction

Nokia joined the Wi-Fi market last year when it introduced the Beacon 3 in December, seven months later, on July 9th, they introduced Beacon 1 and with both units in house we start our journey with the latter; Beacon 1 Trio.

Beacon 1 is Nokia's second Wi-Fi system and the more budget-friendly of the two-current platforms. It is available as a single unit or as a three-pack; what Nokia calls Trio. This system uses application-based setup on both iOS and Android which also enables remote management along with a browser-based login to Nokia Wi-Fi Portal which gives you a large format option for monitoring your network at home or away.

Hardware for the Beacon 1 includes the Broadcom BCM6846 paired with Micron DDR3 and MXIC Flash for the OS. As for radios, we have the BCM43217 for the 2.4GHz and BCM4352 for the 5GHz; This gives the Beacon 1 300Mbps capabilities for long-range 2.4GHz and 867 Mbps for the high-speed 5GHz band. Also included are two RJ45 port for Gigabit WAN and LAN connectivity.

MSRP of the Nokia Beacon 1 comes in at $129.99 for a single node and $299.99 for the Trio. Warranty is listed at one-year.

Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
