Beacon Transcript – Do you love to browse the Internet but that annoying Wi-Fi signal always seems to crash when you most need it? That should stop being a problem as Google’s new routers are presented as tiny devices capable of great things.
Google Wifi, as the new device will be called, is not the first product of this type to be tackled by the company. In the past, the internet giant had a number of collaborations in view of creating a router (see the OnHub, created with the help of TP-Link and ASUS) but this tiny device will be produced solely by Google.
The company has come up with a new approach on the signal matter, as their plan is to replace the singular, bulky router with a number of smaller, slimmer ones. The tiny, neatly-designed devices will work by forming a mesh network that will make it easier to connect to your wireless network from any place in the house. By spreading them throughout the house, clients will no longer face the signal problem that occurs with the current devices whose signal strength weakens the further away one gets from the room containing them.
Space and aspect were also taken into consideration when the product was conceived so as to make it an easy fit in any space. Coming to the size of a small puck, the Google Wifi sports a sleek, white design with its simplistic shape and a sole, central LED circle placed in the middle so as to offer the user status information.
Google’s new routers will not only be small, they will be smart as well as they have been programmed to auto-detect and connect to the channel with the least interferences and also the fastest bandwidth. The user would only have to find a place, while the device will do the rest of the job.
The device’s technical specifications include, amongst others, an AC1200 2×2 Wave 2 Wi-Fi (which can be expanded) TX Beamforming, Bluetooth Smart Ready and two Ethernets ports per spot, that can be configured for WAN or LAN. It will be powered by a Type-C USB and come with a 15W charging adapter. Its 512MB DDR3L RAM will accompany 4 GB of eMMC storage and it will have a quad-core processor.
The Google Wifi should be released on the market in December, with preorders starting in November and will come to a price of $129 per piece or $299 for a pack of three.
Tiny but smart, Google’s new routers are set to offer a solution to our connectivity issues. Any thoughts?
