Broadband service providers were not left out in the cold Las Vegas weather by Netgear this year with quite a few announcements of high performance products.
New Mobile Broadband Solution
The new mobile Broadband router (MBR1000) with both 3G/4G and Ethernet WAN delivers performance that rivals wired broadband. It is ideal for remote locations and nomadic usage by providing an instant WiFi Internet hot spot. The dual WAN feature makes it perfect for business deployments where cost of network outages is high, with the HSPA+/LTE and wired Broadband operating in fail-over. The MBR1000 is also an ideal solution for use while in transit such as on trains, buses and boats and in IP-enabled fleet management applications.
New Gateway and Telephony Solutions
NETGEAR’s newest offerings for wired service providers include an OSGi-enabled VDSL2 and GigE dual WAN gateway (VEVG3700) that can be used in DSL, FTTH or DOCSIS networks. The new high-performance gateway features Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi Dual Band, as well as a CAT-iq DECT base station and wired VoIP lines (offering 6 x 6 IP-PBX functionality), making it perfect for both residential and small business applications. The VEVG3700 gateway is also a DLNA /UPnP server so it can seamlessly access digital media content that is stored on an attached USB device or devices on the LAN.
Netgear also announced a new stylish Digital Home Hub (DHH1000), the VDH1000 and VDB1000 DECT handset and charging base. The DHH1000 has all the same great features as the VEVG3700, but includes ADSL-2+ WAN. The VDH1000 and VDB1000 is a cordless 1.8/1.9GHz DECT solution that has an LCD display and delivers high quality voice telephony, advanced calling features, long reach and co-exists with WiFi.
New Cable Gateway Solution
The new cable gateway (CG3202) is the first DOCSIS 3.0 Dual Band WiFi cable solution, delivering top performance for real time applications including video, audio, voice and online gaming. This full-featured gateway has been developed for the connected home or business with multiple computers and multiple applications. This product is also available in EuroDOCSIS 3.0 (CG3302).
The VEVG3700, DHH1000 and CG3202/CG3302 are the latest products in a family of OSGi-enabled gateways from Netgear that enable easy integration of applications such as home security, appliance control, health monitoring, energy management and media sharing services.
