Netgear Inc has launched the PR60X 10G/multi-gigabit dual WAN pro router, the latest addition to its total networking solution platform, Insight. With up to 18Gbps bi-directional WAN-LAN throughput performance and dual WAN failover interfaces, the PR60X is a networking solution for small and mid-sized businesses. 

Netgear has reimagined connectivity for businesses with the launch of the PR60X Pro Router,” says Iphie Chen, Senior Product Line Manager, SMB Business Unit at Netgear. 

“10G broadband is coming to every business in the very near future.  Businesses need to be able to support those speeds on their router to get the most out of their high-speed broadband connection. Our expert team created the PR60X to help small businesses and the VARs that manage their networks, using high performance hardware and prioritising network reliability, reduced latency, high-speed data delivery, and versatility. It seamlessly combines with our portfolio of Pro WiFi Access Points, Smart Switches, and our Insight cloud management platform for an optimised business network that’s easy to deploy and manage.” 

With 10G/Multi-Gigabit throughput, 10G/2.5G dual WAN ports and 10G/2.5G/Multi-Gigabit LAN ports, it can handle internet and device speeds of today and for years to come. 

The PR60X assures uninterrupted internet connectivity for critical applications and services with its dual WAN fail-over design. 

As the gateway to a company’s network, the router protects against malicious incoming traffic. The built-in firewall blocks unauthorised access to the network and monitors the communications between the network and the outside world. 

The PR60X also sports a sleek rackmount design with ports in the rear for simple, clean integration among pre-existing data networking equipment. It also includes reverse mounting rack ears for front-facing ports, if desired, helping users to attain a unified, traditional look. 

Its technical capacity and Netgear’s support make it a reliable and affordable, cloud managed 10G routing solution for any small business. 

Netgear includes a three-year warranty and 90-days free phone and chat support for the PR60X, making it a simple and stress-free networking solution for businesses to adopt.

Key features include up to 18 Gbps WAN-LAN bi-directional throughput enabled by ARM A73 Quad Core 2.2GHz CPU and a dedicated hardware network engine, 1×2.5G WAN and 1x10G configurable WAN/LAN ports plus 3×2.5G LAN and 1x10G SFP+ LAN ports, dual WAN ports for failover, accommodating two internet connections to maintain a reliable link – the first connection functions as the primary and the other as a backup. 

It also includes eight VLANs for network segmentation (for more secure and efficient use of network resources, separate the network into up to eight segments), eight DHCP servers for better security and manageability (multiple DHCP servers enable multiple Layer3 independent networks for a higher level of security and intra-network manageability, one for each VLAN) and IPSec VPN provides up to 30 VPN tunnels for businesses to connect remote workers, branch offices and partners to the main corporate network.

The latest edition of Netgear’s cloud management platform, Insight 7.0 covers the entire network, including the PR60X router, providing remote configuration and management 24/7 from any location. 

Netgear Insight is a comprehensive tool that IT managers and VARs can use to remotely manage networks, from access points to switches, routers and more. This is especially important for today’s small businesses that may not have a dedicated IT team onsite. VARs can remotely monitor the health of their client’s managed networks and address issues in real-time to ensure systems are running smoothly.  

Netgear offers a comprehensive product line of WiFi 6 and 6E access points, supported by 2.5G Ethernet, fully compatible with Insight Managed Multi-Gig PoE Smart Switches for the fastest internet and intra-network throughput. 

The Pro WiFi Access Points offer choices in dual band and tri-band radio configurations, with the same security and management feature set but various performance and price points. 

Rounding out the complete network solution are NETGEAR’s Insight Managed Smart Switches. The product line spans five to 48 ports with POE+ and POE++ capability.  

The Netgear PR60X is available in the UK now for £669.99.
