NETGEAR, a networking solutions provider, has enhanced its business product portfolio with new wireless access points, firewalls and storage solutions designed for K-12 education facilities and SMB customers.
The new products are designed to offer easy-to-deploy access, security and storage for customers in SMBs, hospitality and healthcare sites, and K-12 schools, the company said.
The company has also redesigned two of its popular firewalls and a rack-mount ReadyNAS storage appliance with new, more powerful processors to provide significantly improved performance but with the same lower total cost of ownership, the company said.
New product additions from NETGEAR include the following:
- Dual Band High Powered 802.11n Weatherproof Outdoor Access Point (WND930)
- Dual Band 802.11ac Wireless Access Point (WAC120)
- Updated products with powerful new processors include:
- ProSAFE 8-Port Gigabit VPN Firewall (FVS318G-200)
- ProSAFE 4-Port Dual WAN Gigabit Firewall with SSL and IPsec VPN (FVS336G-300)
- ReadyNAS 2120 Series Network Attached Storage (RN2120-200)
“We’re pleased to complement our already extensive business solution portfolio with our first outdoor wireless access point as well as our first access point using dual band 802.11ac WiFi, the next-generation in wireless technology,” said Peter Newton, senior director of product management for NETGEAR’s Commercial Business Unit.
The new NETGEAR WND930 Weatherproof Outdoor Access Point extends network reach beyond fixed walls to provide WiFi access for outdoor environments. It is an ideal solution for hotels, resorts, schools, healthcare facilities, multi-dwelling apartments, and other organizations needing high-throughput, high-capacity outdoor wireless coverage for parks, playing fields, pool areas, parking lots, and other sites.
The WND930 is a dual band concurrent 802.11n Outdoor Access Point that offers up to 500 mW of RF output power combined with a high gain internal antenna to maximize coverage. It has an IP-67 industrial grade enclosure with an embedded heater that enables it to operate in temperatures below freezing.
The new NETGEAR Dual Band 802.11ac Wireless Access Point delivers high performance, next-generation WiFi for small business environments and is ideal for users deploying one or two access points in their offices or branch locations to connect laptops, smartphones, tablets, VoIP phones, and surveillance cameras.
The new WAC120 Access Point is backed by the NETGEAR 3-Year Limited Hardware Warranty along with 3-Year Next Business Day Shipping for part replacement and 24×7 Lifetime Technical Support. The WAC120 is available now at an MSRP of $159 in the U.S.
The NETGEAR ProSAFE FVS318G VPN Firewall is designed to offer security, remote access and reliability for small business environments with five to ten users. The FVS318G offers maximum security by segregating publicly accessible servers from private assets, such as client laptops and desktops. A built-in eight-port Gigabit switch simplifies LAN connectivity.
The NETGEAR ProSAFE Dual WAN Gigabit Firewall with SSL and IPsec VPN offers the best of both worlds by supporting two types of VPN tunnels, SSL and IPsec, for optimal secure network connections for a 50-user office. The new FVS336G supports WAN-to-LAN throughput up to 350 Mbps, which is 10 times the previous edition, for the same cost-effective price.
NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS product line of network attached storage helps in centralizing, securing and controlling access to digital assets. The solution pairs the latest in performance with innovative efficiency technologies such as unlimited snapshots, thin provisioning and cloud-managed replication.
