NETGEAR has unveiled a new VDSL modem router, AC 1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL with dual band Gigabit to support better WiFi speed and better range with any DSL Internet Service Provider.

The new Modem Router is designed for larger homes and for home environments supporting 10 or more devices such as smartphones, notebooks, tablets, laptops, computers, smart TVs, gaming consoles and Blu-ray players, NETGEAR said.

Company claims that the new AC 1600 Modem Router provides a built-in fast VDSL modem for broadband that is also compatible with ADSL2+ connections.

The new Modem Router delivers fast wireless up to 1.6Gbps and Gigabit Ethernet speeds, within the home Local Area Network.

The VDSL/ADSL Modem Router is compatible with AC WiFi devices and backward compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n and enables wireless HD streaming throughput with its high power amplifiers.

The new AC 1600 Modem Router also supports Beamforming+ technology which boosts speed, reliability and range of Wi-Fi connections to extend coverage and reduce dead spots.

The latest iOS and Android dual band wireless tablets and smartphones can also have the connectivity with this technology.

To wireless access and share content on USB hard drives from any device in the home network, AC 1600 Modem Router offers two built-in NETGEAR ReadySHARE enabled USB ports.
