NETGEAR Launches PR460X with Insight Remote Cloud Management to Deliver a Total Network Solution for Residential Installations

Just in time for CEDIA 2023, NETGEAR is launching the newest addition to complete NETGEAR’s Total Network Solution Ecosystem for residential installers – the PR460X – a 10G/Multi-Gigabit Dual WAN Pro Router with Insight Remote Cloud Management. The new PR460X Pro Router – exclusively for authorized integrators – offers blazing-fast speeds, uninterrupted connectivity and stress-free network management.

The PR460X router was designed exclusively for residential and commercial installation projects in mind, and to bundle with NETGEAR Pro WiFi Access Points and select Smart Switches to deliver a complete, seamless and future-proof custom experience.

The high-performance hardware of the PR460X, featuring 10G/multi-gig throughput and multiple Ethernet ports and an SFP+ port, enables super-fast data transfers, accommodating multiple connected devices – from the smart TV and PoE speaker system, to the at-home conference setup and home security system – without compromising speed. For homeowners, the router’s dual-WAN failover protection guarantees that families stay connected even during critical moments as the PR460X seamlessly switches to the backup in the event of a primary connection failure, ensuring continuous access to online services, streaming and smart devices.

The router’s sleek and carefully engineered rack-mountable design looks great in an AV rack with rear-facing ports. For added flexibility, integrators can mount the PR460X with the ports facing the front, tailoring the setup to their specific needs.

Residential installers can complete the total network solution with NETGEAR’s:

Pro WiFi Access Points – a comprehensive product line of WiFi 6 and 6E access points supported by 2.5G Ethernet, fully compatible with Insight Managed Multi-Gig PoE Smart Switches.
Smart Switches – a robust product line of Multi-Gig and 10G PoE switches, spanning 5 to 48 ports with POE+ and POE++ capability for powering Pro WiFi Access Points, for example.

The PR460X’s integration with NETGEAR Pro WiFi Access Points and select Smart Switches through the Insight Cloud Management platform ensures comprehensive coverage and optimal performance. This seamless integration simplifies setup and enhances overall network management, making it hassle-free for both integrators and homeowners. This groundbreaking platform empowers users with easy plug-and-play setup and comprehensive cloud (app and online portal) and local management capabilities. With a four-year Insight subscription included, residential integrators gain real-time control over their clients’ networks from anywhere, 24/7.
