Netgear LAN Switch and Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router (XR500) Offers Reliable Safeguards Against DDoS Attacks.
Netgear has introduced a pair of gaming-oriented connectivity products offering a wide range of customization and prioritization options. The first device is the XR500 gaming router, which is basically an updated version of Nighthawk Pro line from Netgear.
The second device is Netgear’s Nighthawk Pro LAN Switch (SX10), which is a robust, eight-port switch. Both the products have been designed to enhance the connection-dependent online gaming experience for gamers. The products were unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.
Both products are high-end safeguards against the threats such as latency woes and distributed denial of services attacks (DDoS attacks). These kinds of attacks are targeting competitive titles at a much larger scale than ever before.
Netgear’s XR500 gaming router now comes with a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, game-focused software dashboard and four gigabit Ethernet ports. The dashboard allows constant monitoring of bandwidth usage. The router is also equipped with geofilters that prevent laggy players trying to connect from the far-off location from getting connected. Furthermore, the router has a built-in VPN client that protects your identity online.
The Netgear SX10 has eight ports each of which can facilitate gigabit connections with two additional five-speed 10-gigabit uplinks. The LAN switch can access the Netgear Gaming Dashboard software for tracking bandwidth usage while it can establish special integration with the Nighthawk Pro router series to further enhance connection speed and minimize latency.
