NETGEAR (www.netgear.com), has launched two new Cable Gateways at the 2014 International CES trade show in Las Vegas. The new gateways (www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/cable-modems-routers) offers faster Internet and WiFi in one space-saving device. According to NETGEAR — With these gateways, you’ll make modem rental fees on your monthly cable bill a thing of the past.
NETGEAR now has a full line-up of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem and gateway products to offer for the retail market:
- The new AC1750 WiFi Cable Modem Router, combines the cable modem speeds of up to 680 Mbps with Gigabit WiFi speeds of up to 1750 Mbps.
- The new N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router, a gateway offering cable modem speeds up to 340 Mbps with 2.4GHz WiFi speed and performance up to 450 Mbps.

The NETGEAR AC1750 WiFi Cable Modem Router Gigabit Ethernet (C6300) (www.netgear.com/c6300) is equipped with Intel Puma 6 processor combined with 802.11ac WiFi speeds. Its 16×4 CableLabs-certified DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem supports download speeds up to 680 Mbps — with support for 16 download and 4 upload channels simultaneously.
