Netgear and Ericsson team up to deliver the MBRN3300
Both Netgear and Ericsson have come together to create what is known as the new Netgear MBRN3300E 3G Mobile Broadband Router with internal 3G radio, where the latter offers its leadership and expertise in 3G mobile networks, while the former delivers its experience in routing, firewalls, wireless and IP networks. If you’re going to head down to Barcelona next week for the Mobile World Congress, then make sure you make a beeline for the Ericsson pavilion as the MBRN3300E will be featured there for all four days.
Already available, the MBRN3300E Mobile Broadband Router will merge a 3G WAN with 802.11n wireless and Ethernet LAN, which means you can always share your portable Internet connection with others through the creation of an ad hoc wireless hotspot, or hooking up older devices without wireless connectivity through the age-old method of an Ethernet cable. As for performance, you need not worry about speed, since this model can output 270 Mbps on the wireless LAN side and boasts a full-featured firewall for data security purposes. Thanks to the incorporation of Ericsson’s 3G mobile broadband technology, the MBRN3300E can deliver cost-efficient Internet access for home and business users, making it the perfect choice for locations that lack wired infrastructure as well as offering Internet access from trains, buses, automobiles, RVs or boats.
Apart from all of the above-mentioned, additional features include Live Parental Controls and content filtering to make sure you know what your kids are doing, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), VPN pass-through and Denial of Service protection for added security, Guest networks (multiple SSID) capability to enable customers to set up multiple wireless networks within a home or small business, Automatic Quality of Service (QoS) for reliable video, voice and gaming, and a broadband usage meter to ensure accurate measurement of download Internet traffic with customized alerts whenever you are about to hit your monthly bandwidth threshold, potentially avoiding excess usage charges that add up quickly to a phenomenal amount.
