Google’s newest mesh router is expected to be available for sale in India in the coming days, as part of the company’s $300 million acquisition of Indian start-up Meshrouter, which it acquired last year.
The new Google mesh, which is called Meshr, is designed to be a “smart” router that can connect to multiple mesh networks.
Meshr will support “multiple mesh networks,” which means that a Google Mesh router can be used on multiple mesh-connected devices, such as a car, a home network, a shared home network or a VPN service.
Mesh router manufacturers will be able to integrate the mesh with their own applications.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Meshr CEO and co-founder, Jitendra Kumar, said, “We believe that this is a first-class platform that will serve India well.”
Meshr will be made available in Indian markets by the end of March.
In the U.S., it will be offered by Google’s Motorola Mobility unit.
The announcement comes as Google and Google Fiber are gearing up for their second wave of investment in India, a country that has the fastest Internet speeds in the world.
According to a Bloomberg report, Google Fiber is expected have 4,000 fiber-optic connections by March 2021, with more to follow.
