WN3000RP reduces Wi-Fi deadspots; enhancements support Apple iOS and Android mobile apps

Global networking vendor, Netgear, recently announced three new enhancements to its ReadyNAS Ultra systems and introduced its universal Wi-Fi range extender, WN3000RP.

The ReadyNAS Ultra systems enhancements now support Apple iOS and Android mobile apps and include a new firmware that increases performance by 50 per cent and a new pricing system.

The [[xref:|Intel|All on Intel]-powered platform enables the two new ReadyNAS Remote mobile apps to seamlessly extend stored digital content beyond the desktop to Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The private cloud ensures personal music, movies, photos and files can be downloaded, uploaded, viewed and edited securely.

The RAIDiator firmware version 4.2.17 increases high-definition (HD) video playback and transfer speeds. It also supports the latest 3TB hard drives.

Netgear A/NZ director of consumer channels, Brad Little, said, “Consumer NAS products with remote mobile client access will cater to Australian’s who don’t trust cloud services because of security issues or because they don’t want to add another layer of complexity.”

The Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra range is available with lowered prices starting from RRP $489.

The ReadyNAS Remote mobile app is available for $2.99 from the iTunes Store and Android Market.

The company also launched its latest universal Wi-Fi range extender, the WN3000RP.

It reduces Wi-Fi dead spots and increases wireless coverage for video streaming, online multi-player gaming and smartphone downloads.

The solution automatically repeats the wireless signal from Wi-Fi routers or gateways, providing consumers the ability to move anywhere in the house without having to worry about losing connection.

The compact and self-contained device can be plugged into any power socket and features dynamic LED indicators that gauge the best location for the device. It works with all common Wi-Fi security standards – including WEP, WPA and WPA2.

The universal Wi-Fi range extender WN3000RP will be available in July from all major retailers for RRP $129.
