(NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking products that power businesses both large and small, today launched the NETGEAR 10G/Multi-Gigabit Dual WAN Pro Router (PR60X) making it the latest addition to their total networking solution platform, Insight.
NETGEAR’s line of cutting-edge Smart Switches, Pro WiFi Access Points, Insight cloud-based management platform, and now the PR60X professional router, reaches a new height. With up to 18Gbps1 bi-directional WAN-LAN throughput performance and dual WAN failover interfaces, the PR60X solidifies NETGEAR's leadership position in networking solutions for small and mid-sized businesses.
"NETGEAR has reimagined connectivity for businesses with the launch of the PR60X Pro Router,” said Iphie Chen, Senior Product Line Manager, SMB Business Unit at NETGEAR. “10G broadband is coming to every business in the very near future. Businesses need to be able to support those speeds on their router to get the most out of their high-speed broadband connection. Our expert team created the PR60X to help small businesses and the VARs that manage their networks, using high performance hardware and prioritizing network reliability, reduced latency, high-speed data delivery, and versatility. It seamlessly combines with our portfolio of Pro WiFi Access Points, Smart Switches, and our Insight cloud management platform for an optimized business network that’s easy to deploy and manage.”
PR60X Pro Router
The PR60X is designed for the future with performance, security and ease of use in mind. With 10G/Multi-Gigabit throughput, 10G/2.5G dual WAN ports, and 10G/2.5G/Multi-Gigabit LAN ports, it can handle internet and device speeds of today and for years to come. The PR60X assures uninterrupted internet connectivity for critical applications and services with its dual WAN fail-over design.
As the gateway to a company’s network, the router protects against malicious incoming traffic. The built-in firewall blocks unauthorized access to the network and monitors the communications between the network and the outside world.
The PR60X also sports a sleek rackmount design with ports in the rear for simple, clean integration among pre-existing data networking equipment. It also includes reverse mounting rack ears for front-facing ports, if desired, helping users to attain a unified, traditional look. Its technical capacity and NETGEAR’s expert support make it a reliable and affordable, cloud managed 10G routing solution for any small business.
NETGEAR includes a 3-year warranty and 90-days free phone and chat support for the PR60X, making it a simple and stress-free networking solution for businesses to adopt.
