For long we’ve been waiting for a knight in shining white armour that can protect us from the tortures of buffering, unclear streaming in 144p and long hours of download that puts life on pause. To make sure your pages load faster than you can say “THAT WAS QUICK!” Netgear presents your new favourite WiFi system, the Orbi.
Here are some basic things you need to know.
What is Orbi?
Orbi is the world’s first tri-band home WiFi system. Unlike the dual band routers that get congested when multiple devices connect, Orbi plays it smart by sorting devices into different signals that provide maximum speed. This AC3000 device contains 6 high-performance antennas that deliver a throughput speed of 1733 Mbps and 866Mbps on the 5GHz bands, and 400Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. So even if your entire neighbourhood of 50 (and we’re not kidding) decides to borrow your network, the WiFi will still quench your need for speed by staying fast & furious throughout.
So you can chill while binge watching your favourite shows or upload your snaps without stopping. Orbi’s got your back!
It breaks all barriers
There’s always that corner of your house where the WiFi signal doesn’t seem to reach. An Orbi WiFi router’s range extends up to 2,000 square feet and if that’s still not enough, you can buy one or two extra WiFi satellites that’ll add 2,000 extra square feet, each. The best thing is that adding satellites does not reduce or affect your speed. So you can rest in any corner but your internet will always run on the fast lane, unlike other typical range extenders that create a separate WiFi network where the hassle of logging into those different networks turns into a habit. Orbi’s satellites are all part of the same network. Hence, you can surf through the net seamlessly.
It’ll also make your devices feel alive by cancelling out the dead zones in your home.
You’ll connect in style
When it comes to design, we’re thinking out of the box by getting into curves. So you won’t feel like pushing your router in a dark corner, but rather display it with pride. At the rear of the base are four separate Gigabit LAN ports, Reset, Sync, and Power buttons, and a USB 2.0 port.
A few less things to complain about
With 4GB Flash memory and 512 MB RAM, you’ll have enough space so your relationship with the router doesn’t get too clingy.
Orbi wants you to take it easy so it will work with your Internet service provider without needing to change your current equipment. With a single WiFi name for your router and its satellites, your network will be ready in no time and with just a couple of clicks. You can use the Orbi app, available in the iOS and Android app stores to install & personalize your home’s WiFi system.
How can you get your hands on one?
After changing the way people WiFi around the world, this revolution is finally ready to hit India. Orbi is available for purchase on Amazon. So don’t let bad connectivity ruin your day, get your hands on this fantastic piece of modern technology now.
