Netgear wants you to be able to stream from your garage, if necessary

Netgear, a leading provider of home networking, is expanding itsOrbi Home Tri-band WiFi System with two new offerings designed specifically for smaller to mid-sized homes. These new additions join the Orbi WiFi System (RBK50), first introduced in December of 2016.

The demand for improved WiFi in homes is becoming more and more common. The new Orbi systems address a broad range of home environments, from studio apartments, terraces and units to single family homes and larger estates. Netgear is also introducing new form factors for Orbi that provide even more choice of style and flexibility of WiFi placement so consumers can have a full coverage of WiFi in their homes.

The two new Orbi Tri-band WiFi Systems are as follows:

  • RBK30: The new Orbi Tri-band WiFi System includes an AC2200 router and wall-plug day/ designed to cover an area of up to 200 square metres.
  • RBK40: This new Orbi Tri-band WiFi System includes the AC2200 router and matching satellite, which are designed to cover a property of up to 250 square metres.

As the inventor of the WiFi Range Extender category, Netgear says that a significant percentage of consumers prefer the flexibility of a wall-plug form factor, especially when placed in common areas such as hallways and kitchens. The new RBK30 Orbi Tri-band WiFi kit with its wall-plug satellite is particularly well suited to address consumers that fall into this category.

Lauded for its innovative design and engineering, Netgear Orbi boasts an industry-first Tri-band architecture with a dedicated 5GHz wireless connection between the router and satellite. This is designed to provide reliable coverage and high speeds throughout the home, in every corner.

The coverage means consumers can have WiFi everywhere on their property, without dead zones; even while streaming 4K HD video content or other bandwidth-intensive media.

David Henry of Netgear speaks on the importance of reliable WiFI in the modern era.

“Today, WiFi is now considered to be as critical as any other home utility. You would not be willing to settle for sub-par electrical coverage or inadequate plumbing and you should not be expected to contend with a wireless network that does not deliver the coverage and performance you need,” he says.

“With this new expanded portfolio of Orbi Tri-band WiFi systems, we are introducing solutions to provide the best WiFi for an even broader range of households. We believe that no one should be without the best WiFi experience available.”
