Netgear is launching its highest performance VDSL Router - the Nighthawk X4S AC2600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Router (D7800). With a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and built-in DSL modem, it's the first DSL modem router on the market to support the latest Wave 2 WiFi technology with Quad-Stream on both bands as well as Multi-User MIMO-capability.
The Nighthawk X4S AC2600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router provides a built-in fast DSL modem for broadband that is compatible with legacy ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ connections as well as faster VDSL and VDSL2 speeds. Its Gigabit Ethernet WAN port is compatible with any Internet service so that Nighthawk X4S also offers a future-ready upgrade to fiber/cable options.
Quad-stream Wave 2 WiFi, the industry's latest WiFi technology, means the X4S supports up to four data streams in each WiFi band, maximizing connection speeds for faster gaming and smoother HD video streaming with higher clarity and less buffering. Moreover, high-powered amplifiers, four high-performance external antennas and Beamforming+ improve the X4S range and reliability to extend WiFi coverage and reduce dead spots.
With MU-MIMO technology designed for simultaneous streaming of data for multiple devices, Nighthawk X4S provides major bandwidth improvement in next-generation mobile devices. It is especially appropriate for home networks with multiple device connections such as smartphones; notebook, tablet and desktop computers; gaming consoles; smart TVs; and Blu-ray® players. Instead of sending data to one device at a time, like traditional WiFi routers, the Nighthawk X4S with MU-MIMO will deliver data in parallel to multiple devices simultaneously, essentially doubling the throughput. As a result, you can stream 4K video to one device while also playing an intense multi-user video game on a different device.
Moreover, Nighthawk X4S offers a unique Dynamic QoS prioritization capability. Instead of treating all devices and applications as the same, Dynamic QoS recognizes each individual application and the device it is running on, and prioritizes their network traffic accordingly. Whether you are using your smartphone, tablet or laptop computer for gaming, streaming, transferring files or web browsing, Nighthawk X4S ensures that you are getting the most effective network connection for the best possible experience.
