Netgear has shipped its ProSAFE Single-Band Wireless-N Access Point (WN203) to satisfy demand from small and medium-sized businesses to improve the performance and security of their wireless networks.
Offering Power over Ethernet (PoE), business-class security features, and an external antenna option, the WN203 operates in the 2.4 GHz band with up to 300 Mbps throughput speeds.
The WN203 Access Point provides a standalone configuration for easy setup of a reliable, high-performance and affordable 802.11n wireless solution.
The capabilities of networks in small offices and home offices are being stressed by the bandwidth demands of new media, voice, video and data. Networks are struggling to support the rapid increase in the number of devices accessing the network — traditional desktop computers and printers, mobile devices, smartphones and tablets, as well as IP phones and security cameras.
Thomas Cheng, senior product line manager for Netgear business wireless products, comments: “The WN203 is our most feature-rich standalone wireless access point for small businesses and home offices. Whether it’s an office with 5 employees or a 50-room motel, the WN203 enables the customer to expand and upgrade a wireless network quickly and easily, adding access points when and where needed, and at a price that’s easy on the bottom line. Netgear makes an extra effort to meet the needs of small businesses for an access point that couples affordability with many high-performance features under a lifetime hardware warranty.”
The Netgear WN203 is available worldwide at a suggested retail price in the U.S. of $145.
