Netgear to launch router for new way to WiFi

New Delhi, Dec 8 (IANS) Netgear, a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, on Tuesday introduced a Wifi router for your home that sets a new standard for speed, features and performance.

The latest addition to the company’s premium Nighthawk product line of Wifi routers, Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router (R8500), delivers amazing internet performance with combined WiFi speeds up to a blistering 5.3Gbps-plus, a new record for a home router, the company said in a release here.

This quad-stream, tri-band router provides more internet bandwidth for all the devices in your home, so everyone in the family can stream movies and music, download files, surf the web, share photos, and enjoy online gaming — simultaneously and without lag.

Engineered initially with an elegant modern design, the Nighthawk X8 is powered by an extremely powerful 1.4GHz dual core processor for faster connections — the industry’s first, patent-pending Active Antennas to boost range.

It supports more wired connections with six Gigabit Ethernet ports including two that can be aggregated for faster file transfers.

Due to the recent popularity of mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets, the average household today has more than 12 Wifi devices connecting to its network, according to a new survey conducted by market research firm Market Lab. The production of these devices is expected to grow exponentially in the next few years as the “Internet of Things” (IoT) smart home becomes a reality, the company said.

The next-generation Nighthawk X8 Wifi router from Netgear ensures the bandwidth required to support this ever-growing number of networked devices.

Today’s homes combine many new and old Wifi devices that slow down overall performance. The Smart Connect feature of the tri-band Nighthawk X8 is engineered to intelligently segment slower and faster devices into the most appropriate Wifi band so that not only can the fast devices run faster, but even older devices will offer better performance.

Netgear Nighthawk X8, Tri-Band, Quad-Stream AC5300 WiFi Router will be available in India from January at a price of Rs.27,000.
