OnHub: ecco il nuovo router di Google

19 Agosto 201519 commenti

Ieri Google ha annunciato che la compagnia si sta muovendo nel mercato dei router Wi-Fi. Il nuovo router sarà prodotto grazie ad una collaborazione con TP-LINK, e sarà chiamato OnHub.

Secondo il colosso di Mountain View, OnHub offre un semplice setup, in grado di essere mantenuto senza difficoltà, e altamente affidabile.

Similmente a Apple AirPort Extreme, OnHub è abbastanza alto da integrare antenne interne, ed è gestito da un app per dispositivi mobile Android e iOS. L’applicazione permetterà inoltre di vedere che dispositivi stanno usando la banda, e di applicare determinate regole di QoS (Quality of Service).

Durante la fase di setup iniziale il router si connetterà automaticamente al miglior canale con la minima interferenza, che poi può autonomamente regolare se necessario. Gli aggiornamenti software sono automaticamente scaricati e installati, il che sembra rendere onore alla promessa di Google sull’affidabilità nella connessione.

Per quanto concerne le specifiche tecniche, OnHub è marchiato come tipologia di router AC 1900, quindi essenzialmente si tratta di un router 3×3 802.11ac con un data rate di 1300Mbps su un collegamento 801.11ac, e “solo” 600Mbps su un link 802.11n.

Inoltre, oltre ad offrire la possibilità di Access Point wireless, che è stato reso il punto di forza, OnHub supporta i maggiori protocolli impiegati dai dispositivi di Home Automation, come ad esempio:

  • Bluetooth Smart
  • Google Brillo/Weave
  • IEEE 802.15.4

Questo nuovo router firmato Google e TP-LINK è disponibile alle prenotazioni già da adesso, e sia la versione blu che la nera hanno un prezzo di 199$.

Ecco le FAQ presenti nel sito web di OnHub:

Can I expect better Wi-Fi performance? Yep, and here’s why…

OnHub works with your existing Internet service and wireless devices so you get smooth streaming and speedy downloads. It can’t change the connection from your Internet provider, but it can improve the Wi-Fi connection to your devices. It’s an AC1900 router, which means fast Wi-Fi on all your devices. Plus, its software finds you the best Wi-Fi connection, and its circular antenna design provides reliable coverage in more directions in your home. For more technical details, see OnHub’s full tech specs.

 

How is OnHub different from other routers? It’s built for the new ways you use Wi-Fi.

Today, we’re using Wi-Fi in ways our old routers were never meant to handle. That’s why we built OnHub, a new router thoughtfully designed for you and your home – and every way you stream and share.

OnHub looks different from other routers out there because it’s designed to be out in the open, which gives you the best signal. It has a dimmable light ring, the cables are minimized to look tidier, and its high-performance antennas are neatly hidden away inside its shell.

OnHub combines high-performance hardware and innovative software, with the easy-to-use Google On mobile app. The app speaks in a language you understand. That means it guides you through simple setup, makes it easy to see which devices are connected to your network, and offers help if there’s ever an issue.

Plus, it’s designed to last, even as the way we use Wi-Fi changes. It’s built to support a growing number of “smart devices” over time because it includes Bluetooth® Smart Ready, Weave, and Thread. OnHub also automatically updates without interrupting your Wi-Fi connection so you’ll always have the latest features and security upgrades.

 

Will it work with my Internet service provider (ISP) and existing network setup? You bet.

As long as you have a broadband connection, OnHub is ready for action. It can serve as a replacement for your old router, or if you have a modem+router combination unit, OnHub can act as an upgrade to the router component. It works with cable, DSL, Fiber, and all major Internet service providers. To learn more, visit the Help Center or contact our support team.

 

How many connected devices can OnHub support? Up to 128.

Today, we’re using Wi-Fi to stream and share on more devices than ever before. We have laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, and even “smart thermostats.” OnHub lets you connect them all by simultaneously supporting up to 128 devices.

Cosa ne pensate? Il prezzo è eccessivo? Ditecelo nei commenti.
