House and Home, Technology and Gadget

The day “D” and “H” time since Google unveiled a new arsenal of devices among which a new one that heralds the arrival of the big “G” to our home directly taking control of our wireless network-fi. We are talking about Google WiFi.

Google is the new wireless router company of Mountain View but what is the objective and the strengths of this device against the broad competence found in this product range? That is what we will try to discern.

Google’s intention is to not fail us wireless connection at any point in our house, something that can make using an access point or a PLC. The difference is that Google intends to extend the Wi-Fi through the use of a number of plug -in modules.

It is for it to install several points Google WiFi with which cover a large enough area (ensure good coverage even in houses of 140 m2). Google WiFi for its operation uses a system called mesh-WiFi signal equally just to the points that need it most.

Each Google WiFi has inside a quad – core CPU, a WiFi dual – band (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) and two Ethernet and in the case of a set of three of these devices ports, would you need to provide a good connection up to 418 square meters.
