Netgear releases Orbi Quad-band WiFi 6E Mesh System
Netgear announced the launch of the Orbi 960 series quad-band WiFi 6E Mesh system, divided into a white version (RBKE963) and black version (RBKE963B), consists of a Wi-Fi 6E router (main) and two satellite connection points (secondary) access points. This is an upgraded version of the Orbi 850 series tri-band WiFi 6 Mesh system (RBK853). A fourth frequency band has been added to the original 6GHz WiFi frequency band to provide a much-needed WiFi frequency band for new laptops and smartphones, thereby avoiding interference with the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
In addition to the normal wireless network upgrade, the Orbi 960 series quad-band WiFi 6E Mesh system also pioneered a dedicated WiFi 6 backhaul, which is used for data exchange between the router and two satellite connection points, so as not to affect the performance of other devices connected to the network. Netgear said that this network system can provide lightning-like network connections for families with a living area of 9000 feet, and retain the possibility of expanding to larger spaces.
