TP-LINK has joined hands with Internet search engine Google to introduce a new Wi-Fi router called OnHub for home users.
OnHub is managed by the Google On mobile app while making it easy to set up and manage WiFi.
The company said OnHub is deployed out in the open and its antenna design is combined with smart software to enhance users’ Wi-Fi connection.
OnHub has circular antenna with 13 built-in, hidden antennas to reduce network interference and optimize network connectivity.
The router automatically installs new features and the latest security updates and supports growing number of smart devices in the home.
“From design to functionality, OnHub delivers a better and more powerful, easy-to-use Wi-Fi experience,” said Andy Chen, vice president Networking Business Unit at TP-LINK International.
Google plans to design new OnHub devices with other hardware partners in the future. ASUS will be its second partner.
The price of OnHub is $199.99. The OnHub Wi-Fi router is available from online retailers in the U.S. including the Google Store, Amazon, and Walmart.com. It will be available for sale in retail stores in the U.S. and in Canada in the coming weeks.
In June, TP-LINK released NC200 Cloud Camera, with a supporting speed of up to 300Mbps Wi-Fi for home or office surveillance.
Also, TP-LINK announced the TP-LINK RE200 AC750 Universal Dual Bank Wi-Fi Range Extender that can extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network.
