ASUS and Google Announce the OnHub SRT-AC1900 Router
Fremont, California (October 27, 2015) — Today ASUS adds a new face to its award-winning family of networking products with the ASUS OnHub. We’re proud to collaborate with Google to rethink routers and make them easier to use. The ASUS OnHub is a seamless, natural extension of your home or office that anyone can set up, share, and maintain.
With the Google On app, setting up the ASUS OnHub is simple and intuitive. The Google On app steps through the process, taking you out of the box and onto the Internet in minutes. The app also displays network traffic, tests your Internet connection speed, and helps with troubleshooting. It can even grant remote management control to a friend or family member if there is someone you rely on for help.
The ASUS OnHub’s subdued design blends into your environment, so it naturally fits out in the open where it can provide the best wireless performance. Onboard intelligence automatically seeks out the least-crowded Wi-Fi channel to help keep bandwidth high and latency low. Seven antennas radiate 802.11ac Wi-Fi up to 1900 Mbps, so modern devices can connect at top speed.
Unique to the ASUS OnHub, Wave Control adds a new dimension to the OnHub formula. Simply wave your hand over the router to put your smartphone, notebook, or other device in the fast lane, ensuring smooth movie streaming, uninterrupted video calls, or lag-free gaming regardless of other network traffic.
Automatic updates make the ASUS OnHub self-sufficient and forward-looking. Critical security patches are applied automatically to protect your network from threats, and new features are added over time along with support for future smart devices. Updates are installed in the background, at moments when network utilization is low to minimize any interruptions to your connection.
The ASUS OnHub is available for pre-order today for $219.99 at Newegg. It will be in stores in the coming week. You can learn more in this post on the Official Google Blog.
This is a pretty exciting release as the SRT-AC1900 will offer up some great features and functionality.
