Netgear, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products, on Tuesday announced the India-launch of its new AC1200 Wi-Fi range extender EX6120 with streaming speeds up to 1,200Mbps. Netgear EX6120 enables consumers to expand and improve Wi-Fi signals throughout their home. Its high-powered amplifiers eradicate dead zones and maximize Wi-Fi performance with the help of high-power external antennae, keeping iPads, smartphones and laptops, among others, connected as consumers move about their home, the company said in a release.
Netgear EX6120 features 802.11ac technology which makes simultaneous use of dual 5GHz and 2.4GHz and reduces interference. Dual-band technology enables users to keep low-bandwidth everyday-jobs like sending e-mail and Web browsing on a different channel than more intensive ones such as online gaming or HD streaming video.
Range extenders are a fast growing segment for Netgear as more and more customers are choosing it due to the great convenience it offers in enhancing existing home networks. With the Ex6120, Netgear brings the new high speed 802.11 AC standard to range extenders, enabling customers to experience greater range and high speed connections at home, said Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Netgear regional director, India & SAARC.
Netgear AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender (EX6120) would be available in India through authorized Netgear partners and other reseller channels by the first week of March at a retail price of Rs 5,500 with a warranty of two years.
