TP-LINK has collaborated with Google to introduce OnHub, a new kind of wireless router that gives you a fast connection, makes Wi-Fi management simple, and gets better over time. The $200 OnHub addresses some of the most significant challenges associated with Wi-Fi today. It’s designed to be out in the open, where it works its best. It has fewer wires, a shell to keep cords tidy and lighting that is subtle and useful. OnHub’s innovative antenna design combined with smart software continually work to enhance users’ Wi-Fi connection. With its extensive router heritage, TP-LINK’s expertise was an integral contribution to OnHub’s design, in particular its unique circular antenna with 13 built-in, hidden antennas that reduce network interference and optimize network connectivity.
OnHub is managed by the Google On mobile app, making it easy to set up and manage Wi-Fi. During setup, OnHub selects the settings that will work best for the home, then automatically adjusts if things change so the network is always performing at its best.
OnHub is designed to get better with time. The router automatically installs new features and the latest security updates. OnHub is also Bluetooth Smart, Weave, and 802.15.4 ready, so it can support a growing number of smart devices in the home.
