NETGEAR changes the face of networking in Australia

  • 09 May, 2006 11:59

<p>NETGEAR (Nasdaq: NTGR), a leading provider of easy-to-use, high-performance networking products, will launch a new range of business-class security, router and managed switch products at the CeBIT exhibition (May 9-11, 2006), bringing high-end capabilities to the mass market.</p>
<p>NETGEAR is consistently first-to-market with innovative networking technologies and products for the small-to-medium enterprise market, e.g. wireless LAN, and will preview the next generation of switches, the latest applications for business security, and integrated products that will de-clutter the office environment, at CeBIT.</p>
<p>“NETGEAR has invested a lot of research and development in its business-class range to expand affordable security, speed and flexibility offerings in the marketplace and make leading technology solutions accessible for all business levels,” said Ian McLean, NETGEAR’s Asia-Pacific Vice President.</p>
<p>At the forefront of the NETGEAR showcase for CeBIT 2006 will be the SSL312 ProSafe SSL VPN Concentrator 25 -- a breakthrough for technology offerings in the business market. NETGEAR’s SSL312 uses the SSL e-commerce protocol to provide secure remote access to corporate networks, facilitating anywhere, anytime access to business applications such as email, office productivity sheets and remote management applications. The ProSafe SSL VPN Concentrator 25 cooperates with third-party firewalls and the easy-to use Web interface ensures privacy and security requirements are maintained by providing automatic cache clean-up after session termination.</p>
<p>NETGEAR will also launch its new range of business-class 10 Gigabit Switches. The GSM7352S and GSM7328S are suited to expanding networks, provide Layer 3 routing and enable converged voice, video and data services over a single network infrastructure.</p>
<p>“NETGEAR is the first vendor to make an SSL VPN protocol available to the general business market. We are also the first to market with the new generation 10 Gigabit switches, which lay the groundwork for IP-based services,” McLean said.</p>
<p>Also on the company’s stand at CeBIT will be the new DG834GV Integrated ADSL2+ Modem and Wireless Router with Voice. The DG834GV Integrated Gateway combines six products in one, reducing the clutter of multiple networking devices and wires, and incorporates an SPI Double Firewall to ensure business-class security. Through the ADSL line, businesses can share their broadband connections to the Internet with all wirelessly and wired networked computers.</p>
<p>The anticipated Skype WiFi Phone will have its Australian preview at CeBIT. The SPH101 Skype WiFi Phone is the first certified device to make Internet telephony a reality for users across the world. NETGEAR’s Skype WiFi Phone will enable users to make unlimited free domestic and international calls to other Skype users over a wireless network without being tied to a computer. The WiFi phone will work anywhere in the world a user has a secured or open access to a WiFi network.</p>
<p>NETGEAR will also unveil the FDVG338 ProSafe Wireless ADSL2+ Modem with VPN Firewall at the event. The FDVG338 supports wireless speeds of 108Mbps and ADSL2+ speeds up to 24Mbps. As well as an ADSL modem, the unit has a 10/100 Ethernet WAN port, allowing users to select between service types. The powerful and affordable FDVG338 is a comprehensive security appliance that supports up to 50 simultaneous VPN connections. Previous NETGEAR business routers only supported Ethernet WAN interfaces.</p>
<p>NETGEAR will also display its XE104 Wall Plugged Ethernet Switch which supports the demands of the digital home by providing broadband Internet access without additional cabling. The XE104 transmits multiple video streams instantly and without interruption, transferring data at 85Mbps with encrypted security.</p>
