Netgear Announces Nighthawk M6 and M6 Pro Mobile Routers
NETGEAR's M6 Pro is the first mobile router to support WiFi 6E. Customers will be able to access 4G/5G Networks using the new NETGEAR Nighthawk M6 mobile hotspots. The hotspots offer multi-gigabit Internet speeds.
As the world continues to explore hybrid and mobile living, coupled with remote work and learning environments, the need for efficient and secure Internet access has become an integral part of daily life. In fact, 10.9 million Americans described themselves as digital nomads in 2020—an almost 50% increase from the previous year-- with another 19 million planning to become one in the next two to three years. Answering this critical demand, we've once again partnered with AT&T to provide two-tiered products in the M6 series, both of which are ideal for mobile or fixed wireless access in the home or office setting, even providing 4G LTE support when 5G is not available.
The best-in-class M6 Pro offers advanced features such as 5G mmWave-Sub-6 dual connectivity, 2.5 G Ethernet port, switchable WiFi 6 and 6E capability, and 8x the capacity and speed of 4G, so users always have the fastest connection no matter where they are. The first mobile hotspot with WiFi 6E, the M6 Pro makes the 6 GHz band available for the newest, fastest connected devices. mmWave will serve users for many years to come, as data usage grows and 5G mmWave becomes more sophisticated. More people and devices can connect simultaneously to enjoy fast downloads, lag-free gaming, 8K streaming, and more throughout the home or office.
The M6 features 5G Sub-6 and WiFi 6 connectivity with 4x the capacity and speed of 4G. Connecting to up to 32 devices at once, the entire household can enjoy smooth and crisp 4K steaming, gaming, and uninterrupted video calls. With either device, AT&T customers will be able to access 5G Internet on all their connected devices, even those that don't support 5G. The Gigabit Ethernet and USB-C ports make connecting easy and the robust battery provides many hours of on-the-go usage.
Additional Business Benefits
In addition to new consumer benefits, both mobile routers from NETGEAR offer leading-edge business solutions for the modern hybrid office environment. By leveraging NETGEAR Insight Pro Cloud Management, organizations can easily manage, deploy, and configure mobile routers for staff with complete visibility and simple control—centrally applying company policies, profiles, monitoring, and more for one or a group of devices. Business owners can also locate deployed devices, get reports on cellular and other usage, and more.
FirstNet Ready. The new NETGEAR Nighthawk M6 and Nighthawk M6 Pro Hotspots will be FirstNet Ready, which means first responders can use them to tap into specialized capabilities designed to meet their needs on FirstNet -- the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America's first responders and the extended public safety community. First responders maintain voice communications with always-on priority and preemption on LTE, while the intuitive FirstNet network determines the best route for data traffic, whether that's 5G or LTE.
