NETGEAR, Inc. has announced a technology collaboration with 3G infrastructure supplier Ericsson resulting in the launch of the new NETGEAR MBRN3300E 3G Mobile Broadband Router with internal 3G radio, available now.
Ericsson contributes its knowledge in 3G mobile networks, while NETGEAR contributes with the expertise in routing, firewalls, wireless and IP networks. NETGEAR will showcase the MBRN3300E during the GSMA Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona this year.
"We are thrilled to cooperate with Ericsson, the global leader in 3G mobile broadband network technology," said Michael Clegg, vice president and general manager of the NETGEAR Service Provider Business Unit. "This collaboration furthers our position with mobile operators, and the resulting mobile platform can be migrated to higher speeds and enabled with added features going forward. It is a clear win-win partnership."
Mats Norin, vice president of Mobile Broadband Modules at Ericsson, added, "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."
The MBRN3300 Mobile Broadband Router combines a 3G WAN with 802.11n wireless and Ethernet LAN. The Mobile Router sports 270 Mbps on the wireless LAN side and a full-featured firewall.
Utilizing the Ericsson 3G mobile broadband technology, the MBRN3300 offers cost-efficient Internet access for home and business users and is suitable for locations that lack wired infrastructure, or as an Internet access from trains, buses, automobiles, RVs or boats.
This new NETGEAR mobile broadband router offers live Parental Controls and content filtering, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), VPN pass-through and Denial of Service protection, and guest networks with multiple SSID capability to enable customers to set up multiple wireless networks within a home or small business.
Users also have automatic Quality of Service (QoS) for video, voice and gaming, plus a broadband usage meter to ensure accurate measurement of download Internet traffic with customized alerts.
