SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR® Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced that its CG4500TM Voice/ Data Gateway has received the CableLabs® DOCSIS® 3.0 certification. This unit has the capability for 24 x 4 channel bonding.
The CG4500TM is NETGEAR's most advanced DOCSIS 3.0 Voice/ Data Gateway integrating in one device:
- 24 x 4 Channel Bonding: With rapid growth in the access bandwidth being deployed by telecom providers worldwide, Multi-System Operators (MSOs) are facing a challenging competitive environment. With a 24x4 channel bonded DOCSIS gateway, MSOs now have a compelling solution to address this threat. In addition, a 24 x 4 channel bonded solution like the NETGEAR CG4500TM also enables MSOs to accelerate their migration strategy to an all IP access network, offering up to 1Gbps throughput making it three times faster than any DOCSIS gateway available in the market today.
- Concurrent dual band wireless: With the explosion of connected media devices within the home, supporting operator's multi-screen initiatives is now an imperative. The CG4500TM addresses this requirement with high-performance dual-band concurrent 802.11n wireless networking. The dual-band wireless provides up to 900Mbps (450+450 Mbps) aggregate speed and with simultaneous dual-band technology helps mitigate interference ensuring sustained throughput and reliable connections.
- Integrated MoCA ®: In addition, MoCA is now the preferred technology of choice for MSOs to reliably connect devices within the home. With integrated MoCA, the CG4500TM gateway enables seamless data and video distribution over the in-home coax network.
