Nighthawk MK93S Tri-Band System unlocks speeds of up to 5.7Gbps for homes up to 7,500 square feet
San Jose, Calif. – Sept. 13, 2023 – NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of award-winning connected products designed to simplify and improve people’s lives, today introduced the Nighthawk Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6E System (MK93S), engineered for exceptional mesh WiFi range and performance. The system, consisting of a router and two satellites, delivers 50% improved WiFi performance over the previous model1and faster WiFi speeds up to 5.7Gbps2. With the powerful quad-core 1.7GHz processor and new WiFi 6E tri-band technology, it offers less congestion, ultra-low latency, and more bandwidth.
With the capacity to support up to 100 devices, the MK93S system provides enough bandwidth to connect smart home devices, stream multiple 4K/8K movies, hold important Zoom video calls, monitor security cameras or baby monitors, and compete in online games, all at the same time. And the new compact, elegant design enables it to be placed anywhere around the home to eliminate dead zones, so strong WiFi can be enjoyed even in those typically hard-to-reach areas. The patented antennas amplify the signal for strong, consistent coverage that won’t degrade, ultimately providing advanced whole home coverage of up to 7,500 square feet with an integrated, adaptive network that adjusts the connection between the router and satellites for best performance.
WiFi needs have grown significantly in the past few years, and more people are relying on fast, consistent WiFi to keep them seamlessly connected throughout their home. But many who have upgraded their Internet speeds with their service providers for multi-gig connectivity may not have a home network to take advantage of the increase speed. The MK93S includes a new 2.5Gig Internet port to lock in ultra-fast internet speeds (up to 2.5Gbps) helping users to get the most from the service they purchase. It also includes seven Ethernet ports for wired connections to gaming consoles or IoT gateways.
Customization is key in today’s multi-device home environment. The MK93S includes the ability to create unique, customized WiFi networks on the 2.4GHz, 5Ghz, and 6Ghz WiFi bands. The system’s powerful 3×3 2.4Ghz radio increases the performance and range for IoT devices, such as door locks, pool heaters, smart sprinklers and security cameras which are usually outside or at the perimeter of the home. With a dedicated 2.4Ghz SSID, these devices can be separated from high speed/low latency traffic such as streaming and gaming. And with Dynamic QoS, internet traffic is automatically prioritized by application and device to enable smoother streaming for the devices that require it.
“We’re seeing customers upgrading their internet services and paying for the highest available speeds, but they’re unable to fully benefit from those speeds without the use of a mesh router system like the new Nighthawk Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6E,” said David Henry, president & GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR. “The Nighthawk Tri-Band system is designed to help people cost effectively get the most out of their internet speed and drive greater network efficiency to unlock powerful WiFi range and performance.”
