Google is working on a mysterious new 'WiFi access point' device
So this could be the new Chromecast, or something related to it.Then again, Google also just introduced a router called OnHub, so maybe it's an extension or repeater of some sort. Or, it could be something totally different, like a router meant to be used specifically with Google Fiber, the company's internet network.
As usual in these types of filings, Google has redacted most of the details, but the filings contain one photograph of the bottom of the device where the label will be affixed (shown above)."Device is a 802.11b/g/n WiFi Access Point operating in 2x2 MIMO 20 and 40 MHz bandwidth modes," Google writes in the filing. The device goes by the catchy FCC identifier of A4RGFMN100.In a separate FCC filing a week earlier, Google revealed another device, A4R-WT1, which it referred to as a "connectivity bridge."
The label image that Google submitted for the connectivity bridge was a drawing, rather than an actual photo.
