LAS VEGAS — January 4, 2017 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is expanding its portfolio of mobile broadband solutions with two new 4G LTE Modems offering a simple, fail-safe connectivity solution. The NETGEAR 4G LTE Modem 1120, 4G LTE Modem 1121 with PoE and 4G LTE Modem 2120 to provide instant 4G LTE connectivity for all your devices and equipment in temporary worksites, or can act as a backup to your primary broadband network for avoiding service disruptions when your fixed wireline connection goes down.NETGEAR will demonstrate the new LTE Modems this week in its suite at the CES® trade show, along with other innovative new NETGEAR products.

4G LTE MODEMS The 4G LTE Modem 1120 is a supremely easy-to-use, flexible LTE connectivity solution for all your devices. Simply connect the Ethernet port on the LTE Modem directly to your WiFi router, switch or computer so the modem can share a 4G mobile broadband connection with download speeds of up to 150 Mbps.

Businesses using Power over Ethernet(PoE)networking equipment (such as NETGEAR ProSAFE® PoE/PoE+ switches) for reliable connectivity and power through a single Ethernet cable can use the PoE-enabled 4G LTE Modem 1121 to extend an LTE connection for deploying video surveillance, wireless access points, and  voice over IP (VoIP)phones.

With dual Ethernet ports, the 4G LTE Modem 2120 is ideal for businesses where continuity is critical.  Even if your business has DSL or cable broadband, the LTE modem can run discreetly in the background to provide an automatic 4G LTE or 3G fallback connection during wireline network outages, ensuring business-critical functions such as retail POS terminal operations keep moving like clockwork.

Unlike other connectivity sources, the NETGEAR 4G LTE Modem can be easily installed in a matter of minutes, making it a practical, instant Internet-without-wires solution ideal for a wide range of environments including rural areas, outdoors, and locations where a wireline option is not readily available:

  • temporary offices at construction sites or emergency response command centers
  • mobile retail businesses such as food trucks
  • temporary retail businesses such as kiosks or pop-up stores at trade shows, sporting events and festivals

“Your business depends on an always-on broadband connection, so you need a reliable internet solution that kicks into action when the situation demands it. NETGEAR 4G LTE Modems provide maximum connectivity at minimum cost, keeping business-critical equipment such as security cameras and payment processing devices online when wireline broadband goes offline, ”said Andrew Green, vice president of mobile network products at NETGEAR. “And if your business is mobile or doesn’t have a long-term fixed location, a 4G LTE modem can get your team online in minutes and provide a secure, reliable local network solution without requiring any tech support.”
