Huawei's new whole-home Wi-Fi system combines Powerline and mesh networking

Huawei's new whole-home Wi-Fi system combines Powerline and mesh networking”

Joining the likes of Google and Samsung, who each have their own mesh Wi-Fi system, Huawei unveiled the Q2 hybrid 5G powerline hybrid home Wi-Fi system, so your new Mate 10 Pro can stream clearly from any room on your house. As reported by TechCrunch, these network systems now account for roughly 40 percent of all new Wi-Fi router sales.

If today's announcement from Huawei is anything to go by then it's safe to say that WiFi mesh networking definitely is the way forward. Even those can slow down if you get too far away from the main hub, though - something Huawei's Q2 system has found the answer for. What makes Huawei's mesh Wi-Fi system stand out is its use of a "powerline" network system which will allow network traffic to be directed throughout your home via the existing electrical system, eliminating the need to use Ethernet cables. The company also promises that you'll be able to connect up to 192 devices and that the switching time for the network is about 100ms. Like other similar systems, Huawei's Q2 solves those problems by implementing a "mesh Wi-Fi with a unique G.hn gigabit PLC (power-line communication) module, which can easily traverse walls and break physical barriers".

Why this matters: Huawei's troubles with entering the US market are well documented, but as one of the world's largest networking companies, a mesh system could be a way for it to get some brand recognition.

Engineered for utmost security, HUAWEI WiFI Q2 adds an anti-brute force algorithm to prevent outside and unwanted access to the network to complement Wi-Fi encryption and password protection. TP-Link announced a similar system at CES past year, but it doesn't look like it ever went on sale. A 3-base system will sell for $349, while a 1-base system with 2 satellites will sell for $219, said Huawei. The HUAWEI WiFi Q2 features a dynamic interplay of advanced hardware and software to boost speed, reliability, and range; delivers full-coverage wireless connectivity that's simple to set up; and guarantees a stable signal throughout the entire home. These will sell in three-packs, though the company will also sell individual base and satellite routers.
