The Future of WiFi is Here: Introducing Blazing Fast WiFi 7



The latest WiFi 7 routers and mesh systems from NETGEAR take full advantage of multi-gigabit internet plans. WiFi 7 (IEEE 802.11be), dubbed EHT for Extremely High Throughput, makes blazing-fast whole-home networking a reality in Australia, with low latency, more channel width, and superior performance for high-bandwidth online activities.

Experience Next Generation Connectivity: WiFi 7 Mesh Systems

WiFi technology continues to evolve, including game-changing mesh WiFi systems that create blanket internet coverage for homes of all sizes. Of the new products, NETGEAR Orbi 970 WiFi systems lead the way with mesh satellites that communicate wirelessly with your WiFi router to expand the WiFi network from the front door to the back garden.

With Orbi WiFi 7, your network WiFi device connections are seamlessly handed over to the router or satellite with the strongest signal as you move throughout your space from room to room, and even outdoors. WiFi 7 mesh systems are a great solution for large homes where a single router can’t provide adequate coverage. Mesh WiFi satellites can be strategically positioned for optimal WiFi coverage.

The router and satellite signals overlap, providing strong and stable connections. A three-pack Orbi 970 Series Quad-Band WiFi 7 Mesh System offers potential WiFi coverage of up to 660 sq. m.

Unprecedented Speeds for Demanding Applications

Orbi WiFi 7 mesh systems offer vastly improved speeds compared to the previous WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 standards. Orbi 970 Series WiFi 7 mesh unleashes speeds up to 27Gbps (theoretical maximum 46Gbps) for unparalleled performance. Orbi WiFi 7 is backward compatible, allowing your older legacy devices to function optimally. Here are some major Orbi 970 WiFi 7 advantages.

Faster speeds than WiFi 6E

WiFi 7 increases maximum theoretical speeds from 9.6Gbps with WiFi 6E to a stunning 46Gbps with WiFi 7. Orbi takes full advantage of today’s ultra-fast internet plans with gigabit-plus performance for 4K/8K streaming, multi-player gaming, virtual reality, and large file transfers without buffering or lag.

320MHz high-capacity channels

The all-new ultra-wide WiFi 7 bandwidth means double the potential speed to your devices. WiFi 7-enabled smartphones, for example, can expect transmission rates up to 5Gbps when connected to an Orbi 970 mesh network. The WiFi 7 6GHz band makes 320MHz ultra-wideband possible, allowing more devices to operate without interference.

Significantly lower latency

With Orbi WiFi 7, data-intensive activities like multi-player gaming and video conferencing can be enjoyed in real time without latency. WiFi 7 dramatically improves the user experience and opens the door for immersive next-generation VR and AR.

20% more data transmission

Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) converts data into WiFi signals. WiFi 6 offers 1024 QAM, whereas WiFi 7 offers 4096 QAM (4K QAM), resulting in 20% more data that can be packed into the signal for crystal-clear video quality.

Rock-Solid Reliability, Even in Crowded Networks

New WiFi 7 mesh systems can handle multiple devices simultaneously, making WiFi mesh ideal for connected homes and busy environments. WiFi 7 multi-link operation (MLO) aggregates the WiFi frequency bands to create wider MHz channels, increased data rates, lower latency, and rock-solid reliability in crowded and busy networking spaces.

NETGEAR Orbi 970 leverages the latest WiFi 7 technologies to manage up to 200 client devices in concurrent use without sacrificing Gbps speeds or network stability. Quad-band WiFi 7 multi-link operation includes Enhanced Dedicated Backhaul using the 5GHz band to avoid network traffic congestion. MLO allows devices to send and receive data across the 5GHz and 6GHz WiFi bands, increasing throughput and keeping you connected as you move about the house.

WiFi 7 Preamble Puncturing

Nearby broadband networks and crowded WiFi areas can cause interference, making the connection weak or slow. WiFi 7 preamble puncturing alleviates this problem by splitting ‘puncturing’ a channel into usable portions if interference isn’t occupying the entire channel. The WiFi signal will transmit on the unused channel portion, reducing network congestion and improving WiFi speeds.

Lower Latency for Unmatched Responsiveness

The latency between router access points and WiFi devices has historically been an issue for WiFi networks. Latency is a delay or lag in a system as WiFi data travels from one device to another. It can also refer to the time it takes for network hardware components to respond. NETGEAR Orbi WiFi 7 minimises frustrating delays with ultra-low latency, enabling split-second responses for video calls, gaming routers, and high-definition streaming.

Impossibly Fast, Made Possible

Orbi 970 mesh systems’ unique enhanced dedicated backhaul combines patented NETGEAR quad-band with WiFi 7 technology to create a superhighway between the router and satellites. The result is better throughput at a wider range across your entire property. Orbi WiFi 7 mesh systems deliver internet speeds up to 27Gbps for connecting laptops, iPads, gaming consoles, smartphones, and other WiFi-enabled devices.

With Orbi 970 WiFi 7 whole-home mesh systems, you can establish three separate networks: home network, guest network, and smart home Internet of Things (IoT) network. Orbi WiFi 7 also includes encrypted WPA3 security powered by Bitdefender and the option for Smart Parental Controls to ensure everyone under your roof is protected.

Along with the best wireless technology, the latest WiFi 7 Orbi routers and satellites include multi-gigabit Ethernet ports and USB ports for dedicated device connections. Superfast Orbi WiFi 7 will take you on a quantum leap into the future of networking.
WiFi 7 is the new standard introduced by the WiFi Alliance in 2023. The latest NETGEAR Orbi and Nighthawk WiFi 7 mesh systems and gaming routers use the best WiFi 7 technology along with the best existing technologies such as multi-user multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) and orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA).
