Netgear at CES 2018: Nighthawk Gaming Router, N-BASET Switch, and More
Netgear is introducing a number of new products at CES 2018 in hitherto untapped market segments within the networking domain. Netgear is introducing the Nighthawk Pro family at CES 2018 to play in that segment.
The Nighthawk Pro has two members - the XR500 Gaming Wi-Fi Router, and the GS810EMX 10G/Multi-Gig LAN Switch. The XR500 takes Netgear's proven Nighthawk X4S AC2600 platform with a dual-core Qualcomm networking SoC with an altered industrial design. The firmware (DumaOS) has been developed in collaboration with Netduma. DumaOS has already been deployed in Netduma's own R1 router. Based on the Netgear partnership, it appears that Netduma is evolving into a router firmware developer. Similar to the Killer Networks-developed firmware for the Linksys WRT32X, DumaOS also claims to reduce lag and ping times with QoS features and prioritization of gaming traffic. Geo-filtering for various games is also available. The router is shipping today for $300. Netgear's marketing slides for the XR500 are available in the gallery below.
The more interesting member of the Nighthawk Pro family is the first NBASE-T smart switch to target the consumer market. We have already seen the Asus XG-U2008 10GBASE-T unmanage
