While it may be essential to how we operate on a daily basis, WiFi has its drawbacks. It can often be slow and unreliable, depending on where you are in a given area. Thankfully, Huawei is looking to fix all that with their latest WiFi Q2 routers, which not only feature mesh networking capabilities, it also includes power-line communication, which extends WiFi coverage using your house’s electrical wiring to make sure dead spots are a thing of the past.
The WiFi Q2 also includes its own dedicated channel for IoT connections and defaults to the 5GHz band. The device can also support up to 16 hot spots, and switching between hotspots will take less than 100 milliseconds. Gigabit speeds are also supported, depending on your ISP. Huawei is calling the setup of the WiFi Q2 a “plug-and-play” solution, so minimal setup will be required.
Huawei’s WiFi Q2 will be available in three configurations: a premium set with three AC1200 modules which feature hybrid functionality, or a three-pack with AC1200 models that aren’t hybrid, as well as one basic kit that has only the base and satellite units.
Pricing and availability have not been released yet, but the device will launch globally sometime in the near future.
