NETGEAR | January 04, 2022
NETGEAR unveiled new corporate networking equipment just in time for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) (CES). NETGEAR is the market leader in networking devices for small and medium-sized organizations. This includes the inclusion of the Orbi Pro range of the NETGEAR® Orbi Pro WiFi 6 AX5400 Mesh System (SXK50).
The company's newest tri-band mesh system is the 2022 CES Innovation Award Honoree, designed to give SMB clients next-generation coverage, speed, and security. Additionally, the Ultra60 PoE++ Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Plus Switch (MS108EUP) has been launched as an appropriate partner to the NETGEAR WAX218/WAX610/WAX630, making it suitable for small and medium workplaces or home labs.
The problem for small firms is providing employees with work-from-home WiFi that is reliable, fast, and secure. The Orbi Pro SXK50 is equipped with the newest version of WiFi 6 technology and sits between the SXK30 and the top-of-the-line SXK80 in the Orbi Pro lineup. It delivers WiFi coverage and connection capacity comparable to WiFi 5, with no dead zones, at a price point that is acceptable for budget-conscious organizations. Orbi Pro SXK50 delivers outstanding performance, simple management, expanded device support, and many levels of business-grade protection to help thwart criminal attacks.
“The key concerns for business WiFi customers are reliability, robustness, security, and performance. The Orbi Pro line satisfies all of those needs, but its security features are what set our devices apart from the competition,”
-Doug Cheung, Director Product Line Management, NETGEAR Business WiFi.
In comparison to earlier Orbi Pro models, the Orbi Pro SXK50 can connect to four times the number of devices.
