TP-LINK and Google’s OnHub
On Tuesday, August 18, 2015, TP-LINK® announced that they've collaborated with Google to design and build OnHub, a new Wi-Fi router. OnHub was built to keep up with the latest home router technology to help make Wi-Fi faster, more secure and easier to use.
OnHub was designed so owners will keep it out in the open, where it's performance will be improved – It has fewer wires, a shell to keep cords tidy and subtle lighting. It features a unique circular antenna with 13 built-in hidden antennas that reduces network interference and optimizes network connectivity.
Managing OnHub is done using the Google On mobile app for Android and iOS. During setup, OnHub will select settings that are optimized for the home. During use, it automatically adjusts the settings if the network changes. The router will also automatically install new features and the latest security updates.
