Netgear has now extended the Orbi Mesh router network to enable Internet coverage in an area of up to 200 square meters, introducing two different versions in India. The launch comes in the midst of the epidemic of coronaviruses, which has caused people to work from home, raising household demands around the world.
The two new Netgear offerings come with a cubic base-router with a diamond-shaped pattern on top, branded as the Orbi mesh wireless network (RBK12) the AC1200, and the Orbis mesh wi-fi network (RBC13) the AC1200.
A single satellite is given with the RBK12 model and two satellites are included with the RBK13 design. Netgear also has its Orbi software, which allows users to monitor their mesh network remotely.
The AC1200 is sold at Rs 11,000 in India for the Orbi Mesh Wireless LAN (RBK12) Module, and the AC1200 for the Orbi Mesh is supplied at a price of Rs. 16,000.
Both models can be purchased from registered Netgear partners and other resellers, online commerce sites, and major retailers.
Netgear’s new Orbi mesh systems deliver even Internet access in your house, without dead-end areas, as far as features are concerned. WiFi connectivity is available in the double band and can provide speeds of up to 1.2Gbps.
The two different versions, the RBK12, and the RBK13, both have two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one for large networking (WAN) and one for LAN. You can also create a guest Wi-Fi network that gives your guests Internet access without sharing their personal network credentials.
Although the RBK 12 Orbi Mesh Wifi Network extends up to one hundred and twenty meters, up to 200 square meters is expected to be covered by the RBK 13. The main router for both new models will power your smart home devices or game console with the integrated satellite/satellites.
The router also has two antennas and is able to switch between 2,4 and 5GHz automatically with the band steering system. In addition, the Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant support is offered.
The new model Orbi are also covered from Bitdefender Netgear Armor and are fitted with Disney Circle Parental Control. In addition, your expectations can be changed and the Orbi App offers notification of suspicious activities.
