CES 2012: NETGEAR unveils new consumer networking, storage and media products

By Telecom Lead Team: NETGEAR has launched a number of
new WiFi, networking, storage and media streaming products at CES 2012.

These new products are set to transform the home
computing and entertainment experience for consumers around the world, and
cement the company’s position as the global leader of complete connectivity
solutions, NETGEAR said in a press release.

“NETGEAR is leading the home networking revolution
by redefining what the home network does and expanding its capabilities and
functionality to help make people’s lives richer, more rewarding and more
productive than ever before. The smartest phone, the most capable tablet, the
most feature rich connected TV, even smart appliances, all need a high
performance, reliable and secure network to live up to their fullest
potential,” said NETGEAR
CEO Patrick Lo.

NETGEAR’s Universal Dual Band WiFi Range Extender
(WN2500RP) extends dual band WiFi coverage for any home network. The WN2500RP
offers simultaneous dual band WiFi which extends both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands
concurrently, reducing the effects of WiFi interference. The device is easy to
install and set up with no need for a CD or Ethernet cable. With NETGEAR’s
exclusive FastLane technology, customers can enjoy fast WiFi speeds at longer

NETGEAR’s N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter (WNDA4100)
connects a notebook or desktop computer to a wireless network with ultra high
speeds. The WNDA4100 delivers up to 450 Mbps WiFi speed on 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz
frequencies and is the ideal complement to the N900 Dual Band Wireless Router
(WNDR4500) and Media Storage Router (WNDR4700). Push ‘N’ Connect offers a
secured connection and easy setup at the push of a button.

The NETGEAR Media Storage Router (WNDR4700) embodies the
intersection of two of the most important consumer technology trends of the
last few years: The desire to store and stream large amounts of HD content and
other media around the home and the need for high-speed, secure wireless
connectivity for the rapidly growing number of Internet enabled devices in the
home – everything from smartphones and tablets to game consoles, TVs and

The Media Storage Router comes with an integrated 2TB
hard drive that is consumer-upgradable at any time.  The Storage Router
also provides two high-speed USB 3.0 ports for adding more storage capacity or
for converting existing external USB hard drives into networked drives, making
it the most advanced combination of wireless router and storage available to
consumers today.

NETGEAR also announced two products that make it easier
than ever to connect Ethernet-enabled gaming and home theater devices to your
home network. For consumers who want simple plug-and-play networking for a
single device, such as a TV or a game console, NETGEAR’s new Powerline 500 Nano
(XAVB5101) instantly converts a standard electrical wall outlet into a
high-speed network connection that easily accommodates the most demanding
multimedia tasks. 

NETGEAR announced that Hulu Plus is now available on the
NeoTV Streaming Player. Hulu Plus is the leading streaming service for
current and back season TV episodes and acclaimed movies.
