NETGEAR ships 240 Mpbs home wireless

November 7, 2005

Silicon Valley's NETGEAR reported Monday it was ready to ship a wireless network solution capable of speeds previously available only through wired systems.

The RangeMax240 has a breakneck speed of 240 megabits per second capable of supporting cutting-edge voice, video and data services and also eliminates dead spots that currently vex some home wireless systems.

"With many types of digital multimedia content now being stored and streamed locally on the home network, customers are finding that they require even more speed at longer distances from their wireless equipment," explained Patrick Lo, NETGEAR's chairman.

The RangeMax240 system runs off the True MIMO chipset produced by Airgo Networks.
