News - NETGEAR announces NIGHTHAWK X10 R9000 802.11ac/ad Wi-Fi router with Plex

If you have $500 burning a hole in your pocket, and a desperate need to be the first one on your block to have an 802.11ad Wi-Fi router with 10Gbe fiber support (?) - the newly announced NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK X10 is just the thing for you. That's not to say, it doesn't have some useful features though; like powererd TX/RX (new v. X8) anntennas and Plex support (!) built into the box. That said, I've very curious about the transcoding limitations. Anandtech is listing the SoC as one quite similar to what was in the RN212 - which works, but had some caveats attached. Either way, exciting times. For the well heeled anyway Smile. BTW, anyone know where I can find an 802.11ad Wi-Fi adapter?

News - NETGEAR releases 10GbE Smart Switch family for business

It's probably a bit too early for wide adoption of 10GbE in the home, but it is becoming more important for small and medium sized business (large has been there for quite a while). Pricing is also still very business oriented, but it is nice to monitor and see what's available. There are three new managed switches available ranging from 8 to 48 ports.

News - NETGEAR launches M4200/M4300 PoE+ managed switches

The prices of the M4200/M4300 ($1800/$1600-7000) place them solidly in enterprise or large scale CI territory. But that doesn't mean we can't drool a little at the capability Smile. Mostly intended for 802.11AC AP deployments, they offer 10Gbe inbound links and PoE+ out with a variety of port counts. Yum.
