(NASDAQGM: NTGR) ( www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, and Com Hem ( www.comhem.se), Sweden’s leading cable service provider, announced today the launch and deployment of the new NETGEAR EuroDOCSIS® 3.0 N600 WiFi with Voice cable gateway (CG3700EMR).

The CG3700EMR is a high-performance voice and WiFi gateway offering both wired and dual-band, 2.4 and 5.0 GHz, simultaneous wireless connection for fast, N600 (300+300 Mbps) connectivity and extended reach. Voice capabilities provide end-users with carrier-grade telephone service. “We’re pleased to be rolling out the CG3700EMR with Com Hem. The CG3700EMR cable gateway is a great addition to Com Hem’s suite of products and services that will extend to their customers a reliable, easy-to-use, secure connection for all of their connected devices,” said Naveen Chhangani, Director of Product Marketing, Service Provider Business with NETGEAR. “With the ever-increasing demand for whole-home connectivity, it is imperative for operators to continue to improve and standardize their product portfolio to include leading technologies like dual-band, dual concurrent WiFi. We’re happy to be able to help Com Hem fulfill this need.” The CG3700EMR can handle multiple connected devices within the home or small business with ease. It is not uncommon for end-users to experience interference when using large numbers of wireless connected devices at the same time as small appliances within the home, like a microwave or cordless telephone. This occurs due to the devices sharing only one frequency; the CG3700EMR is able to operate simultaneously on two frequency bands—2.4 and 5.0 GHz—dramatically minimizing interference, creating a more stable signal with superior reach than single-band gateways. “NETGEAR’s CG3700EMR is a significant addition to the Com Hem product family. NETGEAR has a proven track record of high quality, simple-to-use cable products and the CG3700EMR is no exception. Minimizing the cross-talk within the home wireless network with a dual-band, dual concurrent gateway will allow us to provide our customers with improved performance speeds and range which is more important than ever as there are more wireless devices within the home. The CG3700EMR will help us continue to offer our customers the best technology,” said Marie Johansson, Director of broadband and telephony at Com Hem.
