~ Delivers Fastest Online Gaming and 4K HD Streaming for Fast-paced gaming enthusiasts ~ ~ 2016 CES Innovation Award honoree, the industry’s first shipping router to offer 1.7GHz processor and 160MHz bandwidth for maximum throughput ~
NETGEAR® Inc. (www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, has launched the new Nighthawk® X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi Router (R7800) (www.netgear.com/R7800) in India. Nighthawk X4S is an ideal router for fast-paced gaming hobbyists, as Nighthawk X4S not only delivers an extremely fast WiFi connection to any device, but 160MHz-capable mobile devices enjoy up to twice the throughput provided by other routers.
Nighthawk X4S is a CES® Innovation Award honoree at 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show for its advanced, industry-leading features supporting the outstanding Internet performance required for whole-home coverage in the connected home of today — and the smart home of tomorrow.
On the launch of Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi Router (R7800), Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Regional Director – India and SAARC, NETGEAR said “Nighthawk X4S is a great router choice because of its amazing combination of the fastest network processor used in a retail router with the latest WiFi technology for ensuring your mobile devices support the best possible online experiences today and in the future. Fast-paced gaming enthusiasts will be thrilled by this 2016 CES Innovation Award honoree, the industry’s first shipping router to offer 1.7GHz processor and 160MHz bandwidth for maximum throughput”
Nighthawk X4S optimizes usage of available bandwidth for supporting lag-free gaming and smoother streaming of HD video. With its powerful dual-core 1.7GHz processor, it provides extreme 802.11ac WiFi speeds up to 2.53Gbps* and supports up to four data streams in each WiFi band, maximizing connection speeds for sending data to multiple mobile devices simultaneously. You can stream your favorite 4K HD video to one device and play an intense multi-user online video game on a different device, with greater clarity and less buffering, throughout your home.
Even though the newest WiFi routers like Nighthawk X4S now support four streams for improved bandwidth, many mobile devices continue to have only single- or dual-stream support due to size and battery life constraints. To solve this problem, NETGEAR has designed Nighthawk X4S to support the highest possible 160MHz bandwidth, effectively doubling the throughput for supported mobile devices and ensuring the fastest possible speeds.
