NETGEAR INTRODUCES NEW MOBILE 4G AND 5G WIRELESS SOLUTIONS FOR RELIABLE INTERNET CONNECTIVITY FROM ANYWHERE
New modems and routers provide internet connectivity over mobile wireless as an alternative to traditional wired broadband
SAN JOSE, Calif. — January 11th, 2021 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the worldwide leading provider of advanced networking products for home and office, has announced two new mobile products: the Industry’s first WiFi 6 mobile wireless router - the Nighthawk® 4G LTE WiFi 6 Router (LAX20) - and the NETGEAR® 4G LTE Modem (LM1200). With a continued mission to provide connectivity for households and businesses regardless of where they may be located, these two mobile wireless products provide the capability of connecting home or office networks in the absence of traditional cable, DSL or fiber broadband options.
The Nighthawk LAX20 router supports advanced WiFi 6 networking technology delivering 1.8Gbps of high-performance WiFi and improved network capacity to handle a greater number of connected devices on the home network. Combined with a 4G LTE modem for instances where traditional wired internet options are not available or reliable, the Nighthawk LAX20 router provides an alternate mobile internet connectivity option. The new router also serves as an ideal solution for those who need internet access for limited time frames for instances such as a vacation home or short-term rentals.
The 4G LTE wireless capability is also designed for those who need to maintain a consistent high- speed connection when wired broadband is not fast enough, spotty or unavailable. Having a consistent and reliable internet connection has come to be regarded as a necessity with the surge of online activity due to the massive increase in work from home, distance learning and video streaming for entertainment. Certified for both AT&T and T-Mobile and other major wireless carriers worldwide, the Nighthawk LAX20 Router provides the peace of mind that you’ll have internet access even during a network outage with its fail-over capability to seamlessly switch over to LTE when needed. A great solution for families and those who value their network security, the new Nighthawk 4G LTE WiFi 6 Router also comes equipped with NETGEAR Armor for advanced cyber threat protection for the home network and all connected devices.
The NETGEAR LM1200 modem is an affordable and reliable internet connection via the 4G LTE network when faced with slow internet options (DSL) or the lack of a fixed-line broadband service. The latest 4G LTE modem from NETGEAR is certified to work with AT&T and T-Mobile at launch. Get connected easily to strong and reliable internet using a 4G SIM on the LM1200 and connect to a WIFi Router or Mesh solution for internet connectivity throughout your home. Also, the Nighthawk® M5 5G Mobile Router, recognized as CES 2020 Innovation Award Honoree, is now available worldwide. The Nighthawk M5 is designed to provide faster internet speeds with low latency via the WiFi 6 network and 5G wireless connectivity. It is flexible enough to be used on-the road or for short vacation stays for reliable internet connectivity to multiple devices for the entire family providing the capability to stream HD video or play online games simultaneously. It is also perfect for mobile and remote business staff with its secure, reliable and private WiFi connection.
The Nighthawk M5 Mobile Router can be the ideal solution for those who work or learn remotely and can serve as an alternative or backup option for home internet with the gigabit Ethernet port and external antenna ports which allow the home user to improve signal reception. With the option to connect the M5 Mobile Router to an existing home router, through the 1Gbps Ethernet port, the Nighthawk M5 brings 5G speeds into a home network and it can also be used as a fail- over option for uninterrupted internet. The router includes a long-lasting lithium-ion battery, which is rated to provide up to 13 hours per charge and can also be removed when used in a stationary location such as a home or office.
Nighthawk® M5 Mobile Router is currently available from AT&T in North America for $509.99 and will also be available during the first half of 2021 as a retail unlocked device for North American customers.
