Among the new technologies that Netgear showed off at CES this year are: the Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot, the Nighthawk ultra-high speed cable telephony modem for Xfinity Voice (CM1150V), the SMB-targeted WAC124, and Netgear Armor cybersecurity on Orbi Whole-Home Wi-Fi Mesh Systems, available via future firmware update on RBR50 based systems and will include a free 90-day subscription.

The Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot is the world's first standards-based millimeter wave mobile 5G device, available exclusively on the AT&T Mobile 5G Network. The 5G mobile hotspot uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem, the world's first commercial 5G NR modem featuring millimeter wave.

The CM1150V is a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem with telephone jacks, and it supports all of today's internet service plans and is designed to support Multi-Gig high-performance internet plans, now and in the future. The CM1150V includes two telephone ports that automatically prioritizes voice over internet protocol (VoIP), for clear and uninterrupted telephone calls.

The SMB-targeted WAC124 AC2000 Wi-Fi router was designed to be low-cost and easy to install. The 4x4 MU-MIMO WAC124 has maximum link rates of 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 1734 Mbps and supports up to three separate SSIDs. Interfaces include 5 GbE ports (one WAN, four LAN) with Auto Uplink and one (unspecified) USB port.

Netgear Armor, powered by Bitdefender, is a multi-layer cyber security service that will be available via software update to existing Orbi customers in coming months. As Orbi Mesh Wi-Fi provides better whole home coverage for today's smart homes, Netgear Armor actively detects and protects all devices from cyber threats such as viruses, malware, spyware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets, by blocking any attempts to access websites, URL’s or IP addresses that could steal your information or identity.

With the Orbi app, you will receive instant notifications when malicious threats are detected and blocked. With Netgear Armor’s advanced cybersecurity protection, Orbi users will be able to protect their home and family from cyber threats. The service will be free for the first 90-days and includes Bitdefender Total Security software for an unlimited number of personal devices, available for PCs, Macs, and iOS and Android mobile devices.
