  • 24 May, 2005 12:02

<p>Sydney, Australia (May 24, 2005) - NETGEAR (Nasdaq: NTGR), a leading provider of easy-to-use, high-performance networking products, will ramp up its focus on the corporate market at CeBIT 2005, showcasing its latest range of security, storage and managed switch products designed to meet the needs of enterprise customers.</p>
<p>"We are steadily growing NETGEAR's corporate market share and our new line of powerful business-class products, which allow companies to maximise network security, speed and coverage, further strengthen our position in this space," said Ian McLean, NETGEAR's Asia-Pacific Vice President.</p>
<p>"At CeBIT 2005 we will display our latest selection of innovative security products and Gigabit switches, and also preview our new storage central solution that provides users with an easy and effective way to store, share and back up valuable digital content."</p>
<p>At the forefront of the NETGEAR showcase will be its new high-end security solutions, including the FVX538 ProSafe VPN Firewall 200 and FVS338 ProSafe VPN Firewall 50 Router, which provide businesses with fast, secure virtual private network (VPN) access to remote workers and branch offices. The standards-based, rack-mountable FVX538 firewall supports up to 200 simultaneous VPN tunnels, featuring a high performance CPU and security co-processor for maximum firewall and VPN throughput. The FVS338 supports up to 50 simultaneous IPSec-based VPN tunnels, featuring a built-in serial port for dial-up access and autofailover.</p>
<p>Launching at CeBIT will be NETGEAR's next-generation low-cost Fast Ethernet switches - the FSM7328S (24-ports) and the FSM7352S (48-ports). The Layer 3 managed switches provide maximum throughput and flexibility for growing businesses, making them ideal for high-density workgroups at the edge of the network, or in the backbone of demanding small networks. Both products are feature-rich and deliver wirespeed performance with the added flexibility of front-panel stacking.</p>
<p>NETGEAR will also display its GSM7212 ProSafe Gigabit Switch, which allows businesses to move up to Gigabit power in minutes - benefiting from improved uptime, availability, bandwidth and throughput. With a non-blocking design offering full Gigabit throughput simultaneously to all twelve 10/100/1000 Mbps ports and an extensive range of Layer 2 management capabilities, the GSM7212 provides network administrators with all the tools they need to configure their network for maximum performance.</p>
<p>The WAG302 ProSafe Dual Band Access Point, NETGEAR's latest product to feature its new AutoCell technology, will be unveiled at the event. It uses the RF management features of AutoCell to maximise WLAN performance in high-density, high interference deployments. The WAG302 automatically adjusts signal levels, selecting channels and balancing the load among all access points to avoid interference and ensure total network coverage.</p>
<p>CeBIT attendees will also get the chance to view NETGEAR's latest home networking solutions, including its first-ever range of residential Voice over IP (VoIP) products that deliver convergent voice services to the home networking environment. The VoIP range, currently consisting of a WGR616V 54 Mbps Wireless Router with Phone Adaptor and the TA612V Broadband Voice Adapter with Router, will allow customers to easily take advantage of local VoIP services, saving money on telephone calls and benefiting from a range of call features and services not usually available with traditional home phones.</p>
<p>Further catering to the needs of the consumer market, NETGEAR will showcase its new RangeMax products, which are designed to give users the longest range and speeds of any wireless device on the market. The RangeMax family - including the RangeMax Wireless Router (WPN824), RangeMax Wireless PC Card (WPN511), RangeMax Wireless PCI Adapter (WPN311) and RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter (WPN111) - use seven Smart MIMO (Multi-In, Multi-Out) antennas to deliver 127 unique antenna patterns that adapt 'on the fly' to the network environment by adjusting to RF interference, locations of clients and physical barriers, resulting in extraordinary range and consistent high-speed data transfer performance throughout the home.</p>
<p>NETGEAR's US based Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (Patrick Lo) and Chief Technology Officer (Mark Merrill) will be attending CeBIT to help the Australian team showcase the new home and business networking solutions. They will be located at the NETGEAR stand (number D22) at the Sydney Convention Centre from May 24 to May 26.</p>
