(NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home, is introducing the Nighthawk® X6 Tri-Band WiFi Mesh Extender (EX7700) as the latest member to the Nighthawk family of WiFi Mesh Extenders. This new Nighthawk mesh extender provides powerful whole home WiFi by extending the range of your existing router using patented Fastlane3 technology. With a dedicated 866Mbps 5GHz band for extending Internet speeds to all of your connected devices, the EX7700 is one of the most advanced Tri-Band WiFi mesh extenders available. Nighthawk X6 joins the existing family of Nighthawk Mesh extenders that employ a dedicated WiFi link to provide an uninterrupted flow of data between the primary router and the extender. Nighthawk Mesh allows the same WiFi network name to be used as your primary router to provide seamless connectivity with Smart Roaming. Smart Roaming[1] enables your mobile devices to connect intelligently for optimal WiFi connection from router to the extender or vice versa delivering exceptional streaming when you move throughout your home. Powerful features such as MU-MIMO and Smart Connect ensure every device is assigned a fast WiFi connection. Working with any home WiFi router, this latest Nighthawk Mesh extender expands your WiFi coverage up to an additional 2000 square feet (18.5 metres), with AC2200 WiFi speeds that combine to provide up to 2.2Gbps (866+866+400Mbps)[2].

NETGEAR FastLane3 Technology with Tri-band WiFi enables the Nighthawk X6 to provide a dedicated connection to any existing WiFi router or modem router. Unlike single or dual-band WiFi range extenders, this dedicated link is not shared with devices for internet connectivity and thus maximises the available speeds to improve the overall network throughput. The Nighthawk X6 also sets a new industry standard for a secure networking product. This is the first extender with Secure Boot, which ensures only NETGEAR signed software can run on the device for the prevention of tampering. The four high-performance internal antennas make this new mesh extender ideal for extending WiFi to devices like your smartphone, tablets and smart home devices, while its powerful quad-core processor boosts performance for better 4K streaming and lag-free gaming. Its desktop form factor with two Gigabit Ethernet ports allow you to connect wired devices like game consoles, smart TVs and streaming players to your existing WiFi. “NETGEAR first introduced powerful Tri-band WiFi mesh systems to our product range in 2016 with Orbi Whole Home WiFi systems. We followed it up with Nighthawk Mesh WiFi extenders that provided the mesh WiFi capability without replacing your current WiFi router,” said Sandeep Harpalani, vice president of product management of Connected Home Products for NETGEAR. “As customers have responded with enthusiasm to Mesh solutions to improve their WiFi, we are pleased to introduce our latest offering with Nighthawk X6, which provides a flexible, high performance, secure solution for customers to extend their home network.” Mesh WiFi Network with Existing WiFi Router — Add-on to your existing WiFi router and get the benefits of mesh networking; one network name and seamless roaming.

Nighthawk X4S WiFi Extender is capable of expanding to an even greater range through the cascading of multiple units throughout the home. The days of switching WiFi networks from the router to the extender while moving throughout your home are gone, as is the frustration of having WiFi performance cut in half while using an extender. From the front door to the back yard and from the top floor to the basement, Smart Roaming capability in Nighthawk X4S maintains seamless WiFi coverage around your home for mobile devices. Every device is assigned the best optimised WiFi connection available due to MU-MIMO and Smart Connect intelligence. The Nighthawk X4S has a stylish, compact wall-plug design that is effortless to install and blends easily into a room. Smart LED indicator lights on the front will guide you to the optimal location to place your extender to enjoy the best WiFi coverage. Nighthawk Mesh technology powers NETGEAR extenders to boost your existing WiFi with high-performance, seamless WiFi at the push of a button. Without changing your router or gateway, you can now get the ultimate in WiFi coverage throughout the home. “If you love the advanced features of your current router or are locked into the modem-router provided by your ISP, the Nighthawk X4S Extender with FastLane3 Technology offers you an easy way to extend your home WiFi by adding a mesh network without overhauling your network,” said David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home Products at NETGEAR. “Now NETGEAR provides two WiFi extender solutions that boost your existing WiFi like no other extender. With no need to dismantle or replace your existing WiFi equipment, you can now experience the benefits of Nighthawk Mesh WiFi. You need only decide between the wall-plug design (EX7500) or the desktop extender (EX8000). By adding one of these Nighthawk X4S extenders to your network, you can improve speed, range, and performance for all your connected devices around your home from the garage to the backyard without the added anxiety of changing out your original WiFi equipment.” Key Technical Features of Nighthawk X4S Never experience “dead zones” or spotty connectivity issues due to your property, the type of construction materials, or limitations around placement of the router. Nighthawk X4S Tri-band WiFi Range Extender is specifically designed to alleviate these pain points, due to its FastLane3 Technology and its convenient wall-plug form factor. Innovative Tri-band WiFi with FastLane3: Tri-band WiFi enables the Nighthawk X4S to create a FastLane3 dedicated connection to any existing WiFi router or modem router. Unlike single or dual-band WiFi range extenders, this dedicated link is not used for any other purpose and thus maximises the available internet speeds improving the overall network throughput to WiFi devices that are suffering from a weak connection. One WiFi Name with Any Router or Modem Router: A traditional range extender repeats the WiFi signal of your router to other parts of your house, but requires your devices to switch WiFi network names (SSID), one for the router and another for the extender, causing interruptions in the case of streaming video where one would need to login into the extender network. In contrast, the Nighthawk X4S WiFi Extender supports the same WiFi network name and password as your router modem router, for 2.4GHz, 5GHz or both. Your devices connect automatically to the strongest signal as you move around your home and you don’t have to mess with multiple WiFi network names. Smart Roaming: The next-generation Smart Roaming capability of Nighthawk X4S WiFi Range Extender intelligently connects your mobile devices to the most robust WiFi signal so you will experience superior streaming in every corner of your home. You can now enjoy 4K video without buffering or hiccup in performance. Other Technical Features of Nighthawk X4S Extreme AC2200 WiFi speeds — for providing up to 2.2Gbps* (866+866+400) Smart Connect — for intelligently selecting the optimal WiFi band (5GHz or 2.4GHz) for every device Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) — for simultaneous streaming of data to multiple devices Quad-core Processor — for boosting performance for better 4K streaming and lag-free gaming Four (4) High-Performance Internal Antennas — to increase range WiFi Analytics App for Android™ devices — for optimising your network status, signal strength, and channel interference Pricing and Availability NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S Wall-Plug AC2200 Tri-band WiFi Range Extender with FastLane3 and Smart Roaming (EX7500) is available now from major retailers. At an RRP of $279 with the capability of working with your existing WiFi router, the EX7500 is the easiest and least expensive way to build a WiFi mesh system for any home. About NETGEAR, Inc.

(NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is expanding its family of industry-first 5-speed Multi-Gigabit switching products first introduced last quarter. The new NETGEAR 5-Speed switches operate at 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps, or 10Gbps. Through an intuitive interface, the Multi-Gigabit switches provide easy, reliable and affordable connectivity with granular per-port bandwidth control and traffic monitoring without needing to install expensive new cabling to alleviate speed barriers. The five speeds per Ethernet port make them the most flexible and affordable 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit switches in the market. XS512EM 12-Port 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switch with 2 SFP+ Ports, Desktop and Rackmount XS724EM 24-Port 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switch with 2 SFP+ Ports, Rackmount Modern high-performance networking devices such as network cards, gaming PCs, desktop PCs, servers, NAS storage, and AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points now offer both 2.5-Gigabit or 5-Gigabit connectivity. Other 10-Gigabit switches provide a standard 1-Gigabit connectivity to any device requiring less than 10Gbps, but NETGEAR Multi-Gigabit Switches provide additional options for 2.5 and 5Gbps. So, businesses are able to combine legacy Ethernet speeds like 100 Mbps or 1Gbps, with 10Gbps and now 2.5 and 5Gbps, so that all of the devices in your business, small office or home can run at their individual highest speeds. NETGEAR has designed these switches to be plug-and-play, making them capable of easily leveraging the full potential of performance and coverage offered by the latest high-speed devices. Each of the intelligent multi-speed copper Ethernet ports on the switches automatically detects the speed requested by the connected device and the quality of the cabling, and provides the appropriate connection at one of the five speeds. The ports can be connected with regular Cat5E Ethernet cables, without the need to upgrade to Cat6 wiring, thereby reducing wiring costs and hassle. Each switch also has two SFP+ fiber ports with 1-Gigabit or 10-Gigabit connectivity that’s ideal for providing a high-speed uplink to your core network. Both the XS512EM and the XS724EM Switches go beyond basic network connectivity by adding REVS (Reliability, Enhanced Control, Visibility and Security) values to any SMB network: Reliability — Link Aggregation and Loop Prevention assure that the SMB networks are up and running to minimise possible downtimes. Enhanced Control — Improves your network performance with VLAN, QoS and Multicast Support. Visibility — Identifies any possible cable issues or abnormal traffic behavior with cable health test and port statistics. Security — Protects SMB networks for possible threats through Auto DoS and Storm Control. Both the new XS724EM and the XS512EM Switches can operate either in silent mode or with a quiet fan. This whisper-quiet feature, combined with the smaller form factor of the 12-port XS512EM and its flexible, rackmount and desktop mounting options, makes the XS512EM especially ideal for smaller spaces. Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR, said, “New devices on your network today each operate at their own speed for optimum performance. With NETGEAR, your newest devices are able to reach their top performance because our new 5-Speed Switches automatically sense and adjust to the appropriate speed on a per port basis, over existing cabling. They make it easy on your IT budget, too.” The new Multi-Gigabit Smart Managed Plus Switches deliver the full set of powerful features of other NETGEAR Smart Managed Plus Switches — including network monitoring, traffic prioritisation, and network segmentation — to small businesses who want more visibility and control on top of plug-and-play connectivity. Easy-to-use web browser-based management GUI makes advanced setup simple. Features include: QoS, VLAN and network monitoring Auto "denial-of-service" (DoS) prevention Cable test, loop prevention and broadcast storm controls IGMP snooping v1, v2 and v3 support for multicast optimisation Rate limiting and priority queuing for better bandwidth allocation Port mirroring for network monitoring Link Aggregation (static, LACP) to add redundancy and increase speed in your connections Energy efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) for maximum power savings Availability NETGEAR XS512EM 12-Port and XS724EM 24-Port 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switches will be available through authorised NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels and ecommerce sites. Regional variance may apply to the final pricing for end customers depending on the reseller and bundled offerings. Australian and New Zealand local pricing and availability will be announced at a later date. The 5-Speed Multi-Gigabit Switching Product Family In addition to the XS512EM and XS5724EM Switches, there are already several other switches in the uniquely comprehensive NETGEAR portfolio of Multi-Gigabit/5-Speed Switches. Customers can find a solution to fit every need and price point in both copper and fiber options, and desktop and rackmount editions of Unmanaged, Smart Managed Plus, Smart Managed Pro, and Fully Managed Switches.

It’s easy to run a thorough report that includes tips for eliminating specific vulnerabilities, or to simply check the status of your devices and address any issues then and there. Intelligent Network Intrusion Prevention NETGEAR Armor blocks hackers from accessing your smart-home devices such as internet-enabled thermostats, refrigerators, baby monitors, and security cameras.

The Orbi™ Pro Tri-band WiFi System for Small Businesses by NETGEAR (SRK60) with patented Fastlane3 technology joins the award-winning Orbi Tri-Band Home WiFi System product family as the industry’s first purpose-built WiFi solution specifically designed for small business owners to install themselves. Orbi Pro is the perfect WiFi solution for commercial locations such as professional offices, restaurants, retail, or bed and breakfast inns, which would benefit from easy to set up WiFi. With Orbi Pro, there is no wiring, professional installation, or added IT costs. “Many small business would find value in having WiFi for their guests, employees and business systems, but the cost and complexity of setting up and managing such a network is beyond their means,” explained Nader Attar, senior product line manager for SMB WiFi and Security at NETGEAR. “The Orbi Pro Tri-band WiFi System guided install allows anyone to set up separate WiFi for guests, employees and business traffic. The product is designed to complement office décor and sit unobtrusively anywhere or be mounted out-of-the-way.” NETGEAR’s patented FastLane3 Technology is made up of three critical components: (1) Tri-band WiFi, (2) a dedicated WiFi link from the extender to your router, and (3) optimised antenna design. The Orbi Pro Tri-band WiFi System includes an AC3000 router and matching satellite engineered to cover a site of 460 square meters, and up to 920 with two add-on satellites. With setup and management features that make it easy to add Orbi Pro satellites to cover larger areas, Orbi Pro delivers enterprise-class WiFi and advanced router features with the network performance and reliability a growing business demands. Admin, Employee and Guest Networks Orbi Pro comes with three pre-defined WiFi networks for traffic separation: an administrative network for business connectivity, an employee network for internet access, and a guest network for visitors to enjoy the internet. Admin Network: Designed to provide access to critical infrastructure such as private servers, VoIP systems, or computers that contain sensitive data like patient files, Point of Sale (PoS) terminals, printers, etc. It enables access to the Gigabit Ethernet ports on Orbi for connecting wired devices. Employee Network: Designed for employee BYODs (Bring Your Own Device) which need access to the internet, but do not need access to the systems on the Admin Network or the Gigabit Ethernet Ports. It has an SSID that is different than the admin network, and its password can be easily changed as employees leave. Guest Access Network: Completely isolated from the other two networks, it is designed to be used by customers, patients, clients and other visitors. Their devices get access to the internet through a captive portal for only a limited amount of time as easily set by the network administrator. Orbi Pro delivers the seamless WiFi performance to keep your company, employees, and customers online, for up to 40 simultaneous connections.

(NASDAQ: NTGR) is introducing the NETGEAR Insight™ solution, a revolutionary new way to instantly discover, configure, and continuously monitor and manage your network of NETGEAR Wi-Fi access points, switches and storage devices. Insight is an industry first – offering plug-and-play set up and management of your network from an easy-to-use mobile app with no mandatory fees for the app or the subscription. Until now, setup and management of small business network devices has been tedious, requiring owners or IT managers to configure each device individually. The new NETGEAR Insight app management solution is the answer to the once diverse landscape of network management tools. The Insight app allows for easy multi-device configuration and instant management of your Insight Managed switches, wireless access points and network storage— from wherever you can connect to the internet. The NETGEAR Insight app is free to download from the Apple® App Store℠ and Google Play™, and is also offering instant registration of any NETGEAR Business product, and provides a unified, single-pane-of-glass view of your NETGEAR network devices with easy access to both product information and support. “At NETGEAR, we have designed our products with the small business owner in mind. With limited budgets and few resources at their disposal, small businesses need intuitive IT solutions,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of NETGEAR for Business. “The ideal scenario is easy-to-use networking that can be managed on the go, that consistently works to provide the 24/7 connectivity which is crucial to keeping a business afloat and the business owner’s mind at ease.” Jonker added, “Unlike enterprise network management solutions where the SMB is an afterthought, Insight is laser-focused on the SMB space and their growing need for performance, scalability, and mobility. Most cloud-managed networks are expensive, complex and ignore the most important screen of all, the one that is always with you – your smartphone. Whether your network is at your home, your store or a remote location, this line of networking products provides you with a secure way to identify, troubleshoot and resolve issues which might arise, anytime, anywhere.” Insight enables easy management of NETGEAR Smart Cloud wireless access points, switches and ReadyNAS storage products all from the app on a mobile device.
