Netgear’s Cable Orbi features whole-home WiFi mesh networking. The Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem Router System is easy to set up and maintain, as well as fully expandable, and reliable. It is the first whole-home WiFi router in the industry which has an integrated app setup, a high-performance FastLane 3 Tri-Band WiFi system inside, and a Netgear DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem.
The brand new Cable Orbi creates ultra-fast mesh WiFi coverage for homes up to 4,000 square feet, according to Netgear. It could cost you a starting price of $299.99, which is actually free and you can even buy the Cable Orbi bundled with a satellite mesh point for around $399.99.
Netgear says that the new Cable Orbi solution will quickly pay for itself with the money you save from eliminating ongoing expense. It includes a 32×8 channel bonding configuration which supports a maximum of 1.4 Gbps downstream and 262 Mbps upstream bandwidth.
“We’re excited to be the first retail offering to combine the benefits of Orbi whole-home WiFi mesh networking with an embedded cable modem in a single, space-saving device,” said David Henry, Netgear’s SVP of connected home products. “With the Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem System, you’ll benefit from incredibly fast cable downloads and blazing-fast WiFi for an uninterrupted data flow to more connected devices, everywhere in your home, plus tons of great Orbi features like voice commands and smart parental controls, which will be added to the offering soon.”
