From the smartphone to the socket, from the television to the green lighting and irrigation system. More and more devices of everyday life are “smart” and require a fast Internet connection via WLAN. With ordinary routers, you will quickly come up against the load limit and often the WLAN is not available in all areas of the house. Smart home Wi-Fi networks help with so-called mesh technology. We looked at the NETGEAR Orbi system including the new outdoor extension for you.
Tri-band mesh for best performance
NETGEAR’s Orbi provides an excellent and reliable Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi system to cover even larger environments with a stable Internet connection. With Orbi, end devices cannot only be connected to the grid at lightning speed but simultaneously form a homogenous unit with the remaining smart home products and applications.
A simple Wi-Fi network can quickly reach its limits in a variety of applications and users. The result is dropouts or a slowed down data connection. Mesh WLAN made by NETGEAR eliminates all these problems: An Orbi router and one or more Orbi satellites form a mesh network that consists of several individual WLAN networks, which are automatically combined into a single network. The special feature of this is that the entire WLAN has only one name (an SSID) and the connected device always receives the best and fastest WLAN performance without having to change the WLAN – no matter where the user is.
In order to maintain optimal performance, Orbi – in contrast to conventional dual-band routers, mesh systems, and repeaters – additionally works based on significantly higher performance and faster tri-band WLAN. With its patented FastLane3 ™ technology, which establishes a separate wireless connection between the router and the satellite that both devices talk to each other, this ensures that the actual data connection remains free for what it is intended to do transmission of the data content. This guarantees that the maximum connection speeds can be used – in every corner of the house, no matter how many devices are connected.
With Orbi, NETGEAR delivers a whole family of possibilities, all of which guarantee a superfast, stable WLAN. From a single Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi router to a powerful Orbi kit that includes a router and satellite, to an expansion with the Orbi Voice smart speaker or an outdoor product, the Orbi Outdoor. Unique advantage: Everything can be combined with each other, can be extended at any time if the personal requirements change and can also be seen inside and out. Gone are the days when Wi-Fi routers led a sad existence in the farthest corner of the room.
Installation directly “Out of the Box!”
Elaborate and complicated installations of a WLAN system are not to be feared with Orbi. The NETGEAR Orbi Kit contains at least two devices – a router and a satellite for extended distribution of the WLAN signal. Setting up the devices is easy: the system is configured directly with the Orbi app, which is available free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
The router is connected to the Internet modem/gateway via LAN cable, and then the ideal location for the satellite is determined with the help of Orbi. Within a very short time, a secure and high-performance WLAN network with just one network name (SSID) is set up. Other satellites or other Orbi products can also easily be integrated into the existing system in just a few clicks.
With the Orbi app, you now have complete control over all devices connected to the WLAN, can measure the Internet speed and limit the access of the children over the internet is also available in “Parental Control”. For morre information Netgear Orbi Support you can visit Netgear Orbi Login.
