NETGEAR announced the latest WiFi 6 addition to the Orbi Pro portfolio. The Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini (SXK30) Dual-band Mesh System with its attractive price point is designed for small businesses and home-based offices.
With an WiFi 6 (802.11ax) multi-node mesh system, the base configuration of an Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini system (SXK30) comprises a router and a satellite. Each router and satellite also include an integrated NETGEAR Ethernet switch and delivers aggregate WiFi speeds of up to 1.8Gbpsi.
The base configuration of the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini Mesh System (SXK30) provides up to 4000 sq. ft. of coverage. Up to three (3) additional satellites (sold separately), expand the WiFi coverage of the system to up to 10,000 sq. ft.
Work-from-home security and performance
In an era where business professionals and students are working and learning from home, network congestion and security are real issues. The Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini Mesh system provides the capability to maintain secure and separate WiFi channels.
Featuring the latest WiFi data security protocol, WPA3, along with support for up to 4 separate SSIDs and VLANs, the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini Mesh System enables network streams to be securely separated from each other, for example by creating a work-from-home network stream, a learn-from-home network stream, an entertainment network stream, and a guest/customer network stream.
To enable a business-friendly network environment, Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini has four gigabit ethernet LAN ports in each satellite unit and three such LAN ports in the router unit. This makes it easier to securely connect wired peripherals, such as printers, scanners, point-of-sale systems, TVs, cameras, gaming consoles, etc.
“Work-from-home and distance learning are here to stay. However, choppy audio or dropped video calls and extended file transfer times have become commonplace disruptions to daily operations. The new Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Mini Dual-band Mesh system satisfies the demands of users working or learning from home. It is a business-friendly WiFi network, offering higher speeds, improved security, and greater coverage, thus helping enhance user productivity and mixed network security,” said Doug Cheung, senior product line manager of SMB Wireless for NETGEAR.
