TMCnet Contributing Editor
Netgear (News - Alert), an ethernet extender provider, announced its offering of four new mobile products for network operators at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) (MWC).
Netgear officials say, “The new line-up of mobile broadband routers is designed to take mobile broadband to the next level of performance.”
“Built on Netgear’s expertise in mobile networking, these new routers integrate features from its line of wired broadband devices, together with the speed and performance provided by European 3G and LTE (News - Alert) (4G) mobile networks," officials added.
According to company officials, the four new models all offer either 3G or LTE connection, including wired 10/100 Fast Ethernet (FE) WAN, FE LAN & 802.11N WiFi (News - Alert) for multiple user sharing.
The line-up of new products includes:
MBR1200: Quadband 3G HSPA+ (21Mbps x 5.76Mbps) with HSPA fallback and failover to wired FE WAN
MBR1310: Quadband 3G DC-HSPA+ (42Mbps x 5.7Mbps) with HSPA+/HSPA fallback and failover to wired FE WAN
MBR1517: Euro LTE (100Mbps x 50Mbps) with HSPA+/HSPA fallback and failover to wired FE WAN
MBR2000: Quadband 3G DC-HSPA+ (42Mbps x 5.7Mbps) with HSPA+/HSPA fallback and failover to ADSL2+.
Company officials continued its description of the new products by saying, “All of the new mobile broadband routers are ideal for residential and business customers. These devices can be located in city or rural locations using the internal high gain antenna or optional external antenna for poor signal areas. Auto failover from wired to mobile broadband enables operators to deliver service level agreements (SLAs) to business customers where the cost of network outages is high."
