Huawei home Wi-Fi router sets up in 2 minutesThat's what the company says. We check it out at CES 2018.
[MUSIC] Setting up a home wi-fi system can take about 15 minutes but Huawei's says that it's new router will planquate you're whole home in wi-fi and as few as two minutes. We check out the proto type at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. And while we didn't get a chance to test the claim in person, we can tell you that the system consists of a base unit, about the size of an Amazon Echo, plus these smaller satellite units that you plug into just a regular wall outlet. These smaller units are basically repeaters that help link up wi-fi in areas that are too far from the base unit to reach. WiFi will default to the faster 5 gigahertz network speed. Not the slower 2.4 gigahertz speed that you sometimes see. The system will also support up to 16 hotspots. [UNKNOWN] Says that a single base unit and satellite will handle wi-fi for about three to four rooms. One base and two satellites will cover four to five rooms and a three pack of just that base router and no satellites will sort out a five to seven room house. The routers will make their debut in homes globally this coming April with the US as one of the first launch markets. The routers called Huawei Wi-Fi Q2 will make their debut in April. With the US as one of the first launch markets. [MUSIC]
