How Does It Vary From The Traditional Routers?
One of the prominent reasons behind hampered Wi-Fi performance is when someone expects to distribute the signals across the entire home through a single router. In case of traditional routers, the Wi-Fi signals do get easily affected through the walls or barriers. Additionally, transmitting better signals to every room inside the home becomes difficult through these devices.
To address the concerns as of above, Google Wi-Fi is made in a way so that one can put additional Wi-Fi points in different rooms, for the better Wi-Fi connectivity to each section of the home. Moreover, the unused sections can be switched-off to ensure the sections in use get better signal.
The Mesh Wi-Fi Concept:
The Google Wi-Fi is made up of a technology called mesh Wi-Fi. Within the mesh network, every Google Wi-Fi point develops a high-efficient connectivity, and these points jointly function to come up with the best path in between the points for the user’s data. As a result, the user gets best Wi-Fi coverage across the entire home; not just at the zones closer to the router.
In fact, one can even move from one point to the other within the home, while being in video calling, despite worrying about the connectivity issues. Here one doesn’t need any Ethernet cables. Well, that’s not the whole story; Google also surfaced its voice assistant called Home, against the competitor Amazon’s Echo.
