Cassia Bluetooth Hub Router

Everyone has heard of a Wi-Fi router, but a Bluetooth router is an entirely new concept. When Cassia sent me their new Cassia Hub Bluetooth Router, my first question was, “What do I need it for?” After using it for a few weeks, I not only got an answer to that question, but found it to be an intriguing concept.
As you know, Bluetooth is an up-and-coming technology that many of us use every day. Yet it has two big drawbacks. First, devices can only be paired on a one-to-one basis. Second, the range of Bluetooth is relatively short with many devices maxing out at about 30’.
The Cassia Hub Router solves both of these problems and adds other features as well. The Hub is a white cylinder about 8” tall and 5” in diameter. When seen next to the black Google OnHub Wi-FI router, as shown below, it is similarly shaped, but a bit chunkier. The actual plastic hub itself if about the same width as the OnHub, but the Cassia Hub is encased in a white translucent cover that ads about an 1” to its overall girth.
