NETGEAR 4G LTE Modem keeps you online

Get secure, affordable, super-fast connectivity with 4G LTE for instant internet or for backup connectivity in case of service disruptions

SYDNEY September 20, 2017 — NETGEAR®, Inc.. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), has released a new 4G LTE Modem offering mobile broadband, along with a fail-safe connectivity solution.

The 4G LTE Modem 2120 provides lightning-fast 4G LTE connectivity for all your devices and equipment at your home or business and can be used as a standalone solution to your needs, without the need for fixed line broadband. With dual Ethernet ports, the 4G LTE Modem 2120 is ideal whether you’re a family who loves to stream movies, or a business that needs a reliable connection capable of providing multiple devices instant connectivity, any time, anywhere.

NETGEAR’s 4G LTE Modem 2120 can also act as a backup to your primary broadband network for avoiding service disruptions when your fixed wireline connection goes down - a great solution where continuity is critical. Even if your business has DSL or cable broadband, the LTE modem can run discreetly in the background to provide an automatic 4G LTE or 3G fallback connection during wireline network outages, ensuring business-critical functions such as retail POS terminal operations keep moving like clockwork.

Unlike other connectivity sources, the NETGEAR 4G LTE Modem can be easily installed in a matter of minutes, making it a practical, instant Internet-without-wires solution ideal for situations where fixed line option is not sufficient for your needs or readily available:

• Temporary offices at construction sites or emergency response command centres

• Mobile retail businesses such as food trucks • Temporary retail businesses such as kiosks or pop-up stores at trade shows, sporting events and festivals

David Robles, Marketing Manager ANZ at NETGEAR said: “We’re seeing more and more Australians opting for mobile modems in a variety of different situations - from at home to their workplaces. What’s more, with cheaper data and growing allowances, many are choosing this as a preferred option over a fixed line connection.

“The 4G LTE Modem 2120 was developed to provide a new option for those who require lightning-speed connectivity, with the freedom that comes with using a portable modem. At NETGEAR, our ultimate aim is to ensure our customers have failsafe networking solutions, whatever their needs.”
