Netgear teams up with Ericsson to launch new mobile broadband router

New router integrates internal 3G HSPA radio, 802.11n wireless and ethernet LAN

By CBR Staff Writer

Netgear has entered into collaboration with Ericsson, under which the Swedish telecoms products supplier will supply mobile broadband module technology to Netgear.

Netgear has launched a new MBRN3300E mobile broadband router that includes an internal 3G radio and combines a 3G WAN with 802.11n wireless and ethernet LAN, and sports 270Mbps on the wireless LAN side and firewall.

Utilising the Ericsson 3G mobile broadband technology, the new router offers internet access for home and business users and is suitable for locations that lack wired infrastructure, as an alternative to DOCSIS, DSL or fiber to the home (FTTH); and internet access from trains, buses, automobiles, RVs or boats, Netgea said.

According to Netgear, the new mobile broadband router features include, live parental controls and content filtering; stateful packet inspection; VPN pass-through and denial of service protection; guest networks (multiple SSID) capability to enable customers set up multiple wireless networks within a home or small business; automatic quality of service for video, voice and gaming; a broadband usage meter for measurement of download internet traffic with customised alerts; and push ‘n’ connect with Wi-Fi protected setup (WPS).

In addition, it also includes on/off switches for power and 3G / Wi-Fi to help customers conserve energy and optional car power charger and a battery pack.

Mats Norin, vice president of mobile broadband modules at Ericsson, said: Mobile broadband connectivity over HSPA in routers opens up new opportunities in yet-untapped home, SOHO and semi-nomadic user scenarios. We are excited to deliver mobile broadband connectivity to a new segment, home network routers for Netgear.
