Google is attempting to put itself at the centre of domestic wireless networks with a new “smart router” that promises to improve WiFi quality and security.

谷歌(Google)正力求让自己置身于家庭无线网络的中心。该公司发布了一款有望改善WiFi质量和安全性的新型“智能路由器”。

OnHub’s launch comes weeks before Apple is expected to unveil its latest home technology device, with an update to its Apple TV set-top box that will act as a wireless “smart home” hub. The launch also puts Google into competition with many cable companies which offer their own home hubs for watching TV and getting online.

谷歌发布OnHub路由器,比外界预计苹果(Apple)将推出其最新家庭技术设备的时间早了几周——苹果即将发布最新款的电视机顶盒Apple TV,可用作无线“智能家居”中心。此次新品发布也使谷歌处于跟有线电视公司竞争的境地,许多有线电视公司也提供用于看电视和上网的家居中心。

The inclusion of Bluetooth and other methods of wireless connectivity means Google’s $200 OnHub will be able to control the “internet of things” inside the home as more consumers buy connected peripherals such as wireless speakers, thermostats and security cameras.

谷歌定价200美元的OnHub路由器包含蓝牙和其他无线连接技术,意味着它将能够控制家庭内的“物联网”。如今,越来越多的消费者购买了无线音箱、恒温器和监控摄像头等可连接外设。

The project has been developed over the past two years by teams who worked on the Chrome operating system and Google Access, the unit responsible for its superfast fibreoptic-based network.

这个项目是由负责Chrome操作系统的多个团队和Google Access历时两年联合完成研发的。Google Access是谷歌旗下负责其超快速光纤网络的部门。

Google has taken an Apple-like approach to designing OnHub, concealing the antennas that usually protrude from a router inside a cylinder that can be customised with a range of colours and patterns. Google has made other internal improvements to regular routers that it says will make OnHub easier to manage and allow WiFi networks to run faster and over a wider area.

谷歌在OnHub设计上采用了类似苹果的方法,把通常突出在路由器外面的天线隐藏到一个圆筒中,圆筒可以定制为不同颜色和样式。谷歌还在其他方面对常规路由器进行了内部改进,并表示,这将使OnHub更便于管理,使WiFi网络运行得更快,覆盖到更广范围。

While OnHub will remain part of Google after the internet company becomes a subsidiary of new parent Alphabet, under a corporate shake-up announced by chief executive Larry Pagelast week, no information about browsing or viewing behaviour will be used to tailor online advertising, the company says.

谷歌表示,尽管OnHub在公司重组后仍将是谷歌的一部分,但用户浏览或观看行为的相关信息将不会被用于量身定做在线广告。上周,谷歌首席执行官拉里椠奇(Larry Page)宣布了公司的重组方案,谷歌此后将成为新成立的母公司Alphabet的子公司。

The OnHub device may in time work with peripherals from Nest, the smart-home unit that will become a separate Alphabet subsidiary to Google.

OnHub以后或许会跟Nest的外设产品相互兼容。Nest这一智能家居部门将成为Alphabet旗下一家平行于谷歌的独立子公司。
