Netgear has announced the launch of its latest Wireless Access Point (WAP) which includes WiFi 6E to provide SMBs with enhanced connectivity.
The Netgear WAX630E is a business-grade tri-band WAP that can be managed in the cloud using the company’s Netgear Insight network management service.
In addition to offering fast throughput and low latency, Netgear’s latest WAP supports the new 6 Ghz WiFi band known as WiFi 6E. The WAX630E is well suited for businesses in the manufacturing, education, hospitality, municipal and retail sectors, although it may also be the ideal solution for small businesses with IT staff. limit.

WiFi 6E provides a wide highway and fast to deliver the capacity and speed required.The new WAX630E is the perfect on-ramp for SMBs.
Netgear’s WAX630E features a tri-band design that enables the latest 6E WiFi technologies. As such, the WAX630E can operate in the widest 160 MHz WiFi channels on the 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands.
