Zyxel Releases Update to Enhance User Experience of Nebula Cloud Networking Solution

Zyxel Networks | September 07, 2022

Zyxel Networks, a leader in delivering secure, AI- and cloud-powered business and home networking solutions, today announced the release of the next major update of its popular Nebula Cloud Networking Solution. The new Phase 15 update (P15) further enhances the user experience by streamlining license purchases, guiding users through Nebula’s paid features, improves usability, and increases security and resilience across managed Nebula switches. Nebula Cloud Networking Solution makes it easy to deploy, configure, monitor, and manage a comprehensive portfolio of wireless and wired networking hardware, including access points, switches, security firewalls, and LTE mobile routers from anywhere with an Internet connection. The intuitive interface enables all Nebula distributed networks to be monitored and managed from a single screen via the cloud, eliminating the complexity of remote site access. New Features of the New P15 Update to Nebula Cloud Networking Solution: Security and Resiliance for Nebula Switches – “IP Source Guard” protects networks from IP spoofing attacks by only allowing authorized client traffic based on the DHCP snooping binding table or manually-configured allowed client list. “Auto Configuration Recovery” protects the switch by pausing configuring operations and recovering to the original switch settings when the switch loses connection with the central Nebula Control Center (NCC). Remote Configurator for Mobile Routers – A time-saving remote configurator for mobile routers establishes a connection from the NCC to the mobile router web GUI to enable users to remotely configure 4G routers without having to send staff out to the site. In-Line Overview of Premium Features – Nebula now makes it easy to identify what each premium feature offers and which functions will provide maximum value to the user, prior to purchasing the feature. Simply rolling over each feature displays a visual aid that provides a detailed description of the feature is and its functions, ultimately giving the user better insight into whether or not the feature is worth their investment. Streamlined License Buying – Ideal for prosumers and small businesses, users now have the ability to purchase Nebula-compatible licenses directly through the management portal. The integrated Zyxel Marketplace e-commerce platform in the NCC automates the process, allowing users to purchase licenses up to 10 times faster than buying offline. Channel partners still have the flexibility of buying licenses offline or through the online licensing platform, Circle. Anytime Trials – Available in October 2022, Nebula users will be able to try certain features to explore which best benefit them. This update makes available optional paid features in a free 30-day trial, enabling users to experience the benefits of the full Nebula stack without incurring an upfront cost. Activated at any time, from even more entry points, the unified trial mechanism promises to deliver a consistent user experience across the board. Flexible Firmware Upgrades – Nebula users gain increased flexibility for firmware upgrades, allowing them to manage the timing and version preferences for upgrades. The new options include the ability to automate, schedule, or manually-upgrade hardware to the latest or most stable versions of the firmware, or ignore the update altogether. “The enhancements delivered to Nebula Cloud Management Solution through this update incorporate features designed to address pain points provided through the extensive feedback and insight that we have received from our customers,” explained Shawn Rogers, Market Development Manager at Zyxel Networks. “This update makes the experience of using Nebula easier and more convenient than ever, and includes some new security features that all contribute to making our solution one of the best-in-class networking solutions for SMBs and solution providers.” The Zyxel Nebula Cloud Management Solution portfolio of high-performance access points, switches, and security gateways and firewalls carry limited lifetime warranties and are available now through all Zyxel authorized resellers and e-commerce partners.

NETGEAR Paves the Way for the Fastest Home Broadband Speeds Available With New 10 Gig Orbi Tri-Band Wifi 6 Mesh System

NETGEAR | October 12, 2022

NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of award-winning connected products designed to simplify and improve people's lives, today launched a new addition to its Orbi line. The Orbi 860 Series builds on the award-winning Orbi 850 Series by future-proofing the best seller with a 10Gb Ethernet port, supporting multi-gig internet connections; upgraded antenna design for greater WiFi performance and a bundled year of NETGEAR Armor™, providing homes with an automatic shield of security against internet threats across every connected device. Following on the tremendous success of the Orbi 850 Series (WiFi 6 AX6000 Mesh System RBK853), the Orbi 860 Series joins NETGEAR’s industry-leading WiFi 6 Whole Home Mesh WiFi portfolio. The past few years have seen huge changes to internet usage spurred by the pandemic, including a dramatic increase in just about everything from home-- working, shopping, learning, and socializing. As Internet Service Providers enable faster multi-gig internet speeds, up to 10 Gigabits per second, and hackers create new sophisticated cyber-attacks, high-performance and secure WiFi become imperative. Same Brand, New Heights With NETGEAR’s latest WiFi 6 tri-band and patented dedicated backhaul technology, the powerful Orbi 860 Series mesh systems are designed to keep connections strong and running at maximum speeds in every room without slow-downs or buffering, providing families the bandwidth to address household demands even when simultaneously 4K/8K streaming, Zoom conferencing and WiFi calling from a bedroom, basement or outside in the yard. In an environment where homes are connected with Gigabit plus internet (1.4 to 10 Gigabit) and have an increasing number of connected devices – more than 25 on average -- the new Orbi 860 Series provides the best WiFi experience for WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 devices. It’s an upgrade from the Orbi 850 series with a stepped-up internet connection, from 1 Gigabit to 10 Gigabit, and new antenna system with wider coverage areas. The new Orbi RBK863 3-pack WiFi Mesh System provides up to 8,000 sq. ft. of coverage (500 more than the 850 Series) with up to 6Gbps WiFi speed1 and support for 100 devices operating at the same time. This coverage can easily be expanded with additional Orbi RBS860 satellites. To achieve this industry-leading performance and wider range, NETGEAR uses patented dedicated backhaul WiFi technology and antenna design. The exclusive tri-band mesh system with NETGEAR’s pioneering innovation ensures speeds stay fast as more WiFi devices connect to the home network with less dropped connections. "When we launched our flagship Orbi product line in 2016, we set a new benchmark for connected home products with faster speeds, higher capacity and wider coverage areas with our patented tri-band mesh design,” said David Henry, president & GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR. “Our new Orbi 860 Series is designed to continue to deliver on the promise of superior WiFi. It provides the capacity to capitalize on higher incoming Internet speed, up to 10 Gigabit, an increasing number of devices and even better WiFi range than the Orbi 850 Series. On top of that, we couple it with one of the industry’s best internet security protection services to help customers to secure all their home WiFi connected devices, including laptops, phones, tablets, speakers, cameras, baby monitors, TVs, light bulbs, light switches and more.” Technical Specifications: Faster Speeds with WiFi 6 – WiFi 6 offers four times the speed, capacity, and bandwidth of WiFi 5. You get best-in-class performance regardless of activity or device type. Stays Strong Even as You Connect More Devices – Enjoy consistent, peak speeds and high performance on up to 100 devices across 8,000 square feet with Orbi’s patented tri-band mesh router-satellite WiFi connection. 20% WiFi Boost with Exclusive Antenna Array Design – With unique WiFi optimization and a new, improved antenna array, the Orbi 860 system provides more range and speed compared to the previous Orbi 850 Series. Multi-Gig Speeds with 10GbE Internet Port – The 10Gb Internet speed port enables you to connect to the latest cable and optical fiber offerings over 1 Gbps up to 10Gbps, and you can plug in your wired devices to improve performance via four Gigabit Ethernet ports on each router and satellite. Seamless WiFi for Multiple Devices – Say goodbye to slow connections. WiFi 6 makes shared bandwidth much more efficient and prevents connection delays. Dedicated Backhaul – Unlike competitors with a shared backhaul, Orbi’s patented dedicated backhaul connects the router to satellites with a dedicated WiFi pathway exclusively used for communication between the base router and the satellites while our competitors share that link when communicating with other connected devices. This dedicated backhaul design ensures blazing speeds throughout your home and on all your devices. Connections stay strong all the time. Orbi® App – Easily set up your WiFi system, manage your network remotely, pause the Internet on any device, track your Internet data usage and more. Built-In Security & Services For added peace of mind, the Orbi 860 Series includes a year of NETGEAR Armor to protect the connected home from online threats. Unlike traditional endpoint antivirus products, NETGEAR’s Armor is built into the router as a comprehensive security solution to monitor activity going to and from the Internet, protecting computers, security cameras, baby monitors and other IoT devices, flagging external threats while eliminating the need for multiple security subscriptions or software. Additionally, it provides on-the-go protection and VPN for phones and laptops. Armor acts as a strong and effective “front- and backdoor lock” to any home network. The Ultimate 10 Gig WiFi 6 Router NETGEAR will also offer a standalone Orbi router (RBR860S) for those who live in smaller homes or apartments and desire the best WiFi performance as well as the flexibility to easily expand to Orbi mesh as their needs change. The iconic white Orbi RBR860S router is available now on NETGEAR.com. The Orbi 860 Series Mesh System and satellites will come in white as well as black, making them elegant and unobtrusive complements to any home decor. The system is available now in the US on NETGEAR.com exclusively.
