Netgear and Verizon announced a mobile broadband router for Verizon's brand new LTE network.
The MBR1000 supports wireless data speeds of 5-12 megabits per second (Mbps) downstream and 2-5 Mbps upstream on the Verizon Wireless' LTE network. The device is designed to support theoretical LTE speeds of up to 100 Mbps downstream by 50 Mbps upstream.
The MBR1000 delivers a full customer-side LAN with four Fast Ethernet ports and 802.11n Wi-Fi at up to 270 Mbps and features redundant WAN network availability with a separate Fast Ethernet WAN uplink port. The MBR1000 Dual WAN feature gives customers the option to switch between WANs for “always on” network service should their selected primary WAN experience an outage – an especially important feature for fixed business applications.
Equipped with an internal 3G/4G mobile broadband modem, the MBR1000 expands coverage by improving throughput beyond what is currently available to routers using USB mobile broadband modems because of its high-performance antenna configuration.
