Netgear today announced Orbi WiFi System, which makes easier to enjoy high-speed WiFi throughout your entire home, including the patio, by the pool, up in the attic and even down in the basement. Orbi enables high-speed WiFi to be accessible throughout your home and property, eliminating dead zones.
Orbi by Netgear is the only system to leverage Tri-band WiFi, which has the unique capability of providing a dedicated wireless channel between the Orbi router and each Orbi satellite. Tri-band WiFi is similar to a virtual wire, delivering maximum speeds no matter how many devices connect. This dedicated wireless connection ensures far-reaching coverage, empowering you to enjoy uninterrupted WiFi connections with the fastest internet speeds that you are paying your service provider for.
The installation of Orbi is designed with simplicity in mind and is completed with a few clicks from any mobile device or browser. Intended to act as a full-featured router, Orbi can plug into your gateway or modem. If you would like to upgrade the WiFi on your service provider gateway, simply plug Orbi into your existing gateway and enjoy. The Orbi Kit includes two devices, a router and a satellite, that are pre-paired together for an easy out-of-the-box set-up.
