During CES earlier this year, NETGEAR announced the introduction of the new WiFi 6E technology to the Nighthawk performance router lineup, the Nighthawk® Tri-Band WiFi 6E Router (RAXE500). We are happy to announce that as of last week, the Nighthawk WiFi 6E Tri-band router is now available exclusively from NETGEAR.com.
We have all learned that working and learning from home has placed greater demands on our home WiFi networks. Every device on the network is in an on-going contest to compete for more bandwidth on the crowded WiFi channels, which, up until now, only consisted of the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. This new performance router delivers support for 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and the newly available 6 GHz band – a new uncongested spectrum that can be used to broadcast WiFi signals and connect to more devices with faster speeds, increased capacity, and reduced latency, essentially working as the express lane for your connected devices.
RAXE500 Next-Generation WiFi 6E Router
Simply put, the Nighthawk RAXE500 resolves the congestion challenge and enables households to connect more devices on their networks with faster speeds and greater reliability. An important step for the industry, this is the first offering of a new radio band to the WiFi network in over 20 years. Ushering in a new era of WiFi alongside the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Intel AX210, we expect to see more WiFi 6E products released over the course of the coming year with widespread adoption among consumers, which emphasizes the importance of a router that can support this latest WiFi standard.
The Nighthawk RAXE500 is designed to conceal the eight high-performance antennas under the wings, which are optimally positioned for best performance extending strong and reliable coverage delivering the fastest WiFi speeds available. Infused into this sleek design, there are also two 1Gb and one 2.5 Gb ethernet ports to directly connect Multi-Gig devices such as game consoles, desktop PCs, access points, cable modem, NAS or a switch to the router.
For advanced control and an easy installation process, the new Nighthawk WiFi 6E router comes equipped with the NETGEAR Nighthawk® App, making it easier to get more out of your network. With the app, the router can be installed with just a few quick and easy steps. Once set up, you can use the interactive dashboard to control router settings, run speed tests, monitor traffic, open a guest WiFi network and more.
The blunt reality of today is that we are all more dependent on connectivity than we have ever been, and home WiFi networks must operate with high efficiency in order to keep step with the demands of the modern household. The Nighthawk WiFi 6 Tri-band Router (RAXE500) exceeds these expectations with a product that delivers performance for the betterment of today and tomorrow.
