Netgear has launched the Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi Router (R7800) in India.

Nighthawk X4S optimizes usage of available bandwidth. With its dual-core 1.7GHz processor, it claims to provide 802.11ac WiFi speeds up to 2.53Gbps and supports up to four data streams in each WiFi band, maximizing connection speeds for sending data to multiple mobile devices simultaneously.

"You can stream your favorite 4K HD video to one device and play an intense multi-user online video game on a different device, with greater clarity and less buffering, throughout your home," claimed Netgear.

Even though the newest WiFi routers like Nighthawk X4S now support four streams for improved bandwidth, many mobile devices continue to have only single- or dual-stream support due to size and battery life constraints. To solve this problem, Netgear has designed Nighthawk X4S to support the highest possible 160MHz bandwidth, effectively doubling the throughput for supported mobile devices and ensuring the fastest possible speeds.

Netgear Nighthawk routers has external antennas with powerful amplifiers that combine with Beamforming+ to ensure the best WiFi coverage and reliability throughout large homes and even backyards, by focusing WiFi directly at connected devices.

Its 5 Gigabit Ethernet ports (4 LAN and 1 WAN) claim to offer multiple fast wired connections for home entertainment systems and game consoles. Further it has two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and 1 eSATA port offer high-speed, storage-ready access and transfer of your content significantly faster than USB 2.0.

Fast-paced gaming enthusiasts will be thrilled by this 2016 CES Innovation Award honoree, the industry's first shipping router to offer 1.7GHz processor and 160MHz bandwidth for maximum throughput."
