At the CES 2014, networking vendor Netgear announced the launch of cable gateways.
The launch of cable gateways is part of Netgear’s strategy to expand its portfolio of cable products for the retail market.
The new gateways offer faster Internet and blazing-fast WiFi in one space-saving. With these gateways, you’ll make modem rental fees on your monthly cable bill a thing of the past.
The new AC1750 WiFi Cable Modem Router is a gateway combining the fastest cable modem speeds of up to 680 Mbps with Gigabit WiFi speeds of up to 1750 Mbps.
The new N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router is a gateway offering cable modem speeds up to 340 Mbps with the fastest 2.4GHz WiFi speed and performance up to 450 Mbps.
The existing CMD31T DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem is for connecting directly to your high-speed cable Internet provider.
Netgear AC1750 WiFi Cable Modem Router Gigabit Ethernet (C6300) combines Intel Puma 6 processor to provide wired and wireless performance combined with 802.11ac WiFi speeds. Its 16×4 CableLabs-certified DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem supports the fastest Internet cable download speeds available today with download speeds up to 680 Mbps — up to 16 times faster than previous-generation DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems — with support for 16 download and 4 upload channels simultaneously.
Netgear N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router is a low-cost alternative to the C6300. It has a built-in high-speed 8×4 CableLabs-certified DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem that supports download speeds up to 340 Mbps — up to 8 times faster than DOCSIS 2.0 — for streaming HD videos, faster downloads, and high-speed online gaming.
It supports 8 download and 4 upload channels simultaneously. It also enables 802.11n WiFi networking speeds up to 450 Mbps (@ 2.4GHz). Like the C6300, it is compatible with current and next-generation WiFi devices and offers advanced Quality of Service (QoS), IPv6 support, and the highest level of wireless security.
Furthermore, you can attach a USB hard drive to the NETGEAR ReadySHARE-enabled USB port on the gateways and you will have wireless access of the storage drive from any device in your home network.
The products are compatible with major U.S. cable Internet providers such as Cablevision, Charter, Cox, Time Warner Cable, XFINITY/Comcast and more.
