Netgear Nighthawk D3.1 Modem Targets Smart Homes
Netgear this week began offering a new DOCSIS 3.1 modem capable of delivering speeds of up to 2 Gbit/s to residential, or small and midsized offices.
OTT services and high-speed broadband are driving consumer demand for faster, more feature-filled modems, rather than relying on rented units from cable operators. Therefore, modem leases, a long-time source of revenue for operators, are under attack from some consumers -- especially cord-cutters -- who want to be more self-sufficient and reduce their costs.
Netgear's Nighthawk Multi-Gig Speed Cable Modem (CM1200) appears directed at consumers seeking gigabit Internet for their homes, IoT devices or offices. The D3.1 device is designed for 4K and 8K streaming, according to the vendor, as well as online gaming. It also is fully compatible with previous cable standards and is ready for today’s service plans as well as future upgrades. Related posts:
