Netgear has today unveiled a new addition to the range of routers with the launch of the new next-generation Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200, that is equipped with 6 antenna.
The Netgear Nighthawk X6 router has been specifically designed for locations that will have multiple concurrent users enabling them all to connect using the new tri-band routing technology.
Just like other routers the Netgear Nighthawk X6 is equipped with both 2.4 GHz and faster but shorter ranged 5 GHz together with an additional 5 GHz band making up the tri-band offering.
Netgear explains in its press release that the Nighthawk X6 router is fitted with a Netgear’s Smart Connect feature, that will automatically separate slower and faster clients onto separate networks to make the most of the Nighthawk X6 tri-band technology and load balancing features. Netgear’s Director of Product Marketing Sandeep Harpalani explains more :
“We double the amount of 5GHz bandwidth,”-“Both 5GHz networks broadcast the same SSID, and the router automatically assigns the client to the best network based on the speed and capabilities of the client.”
Other features of the Netgear Nighthawk X6 include USB ports one of which is USB 3.0 enabling you to stream media from USB attached device using the built-in DLNA or iTunes servers. The new Netgear Nighthawk X6 router is now available to preorder for $300 and will start shipping early next month.
