Netgear is introducing a set of gateways for cable broadband, DSL, fiber and broadband wireless access networks, all aimed at supporting converged multimedia services.

Models include a DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Data Gateway, designated the CGD34NT. The product incorporates the latest version of Wi-Fi, 802.11n, as well as QoS and Gigabit Ethernet. It is also available in EuroDOCSIS 3.0.

A Wireless-N MoCA Router delivers data and real-time multimedia content like HD video or VoIP within a home via coax. It also supports low-latency and embedded QoS.

Upgraded to wireless-N, it extends the possibilities of customers’ wireless home networks by providing wireless speeds of up to 300 Mbps. It integrates with the

Netgear Coax-Ethernet Adapter Kit (MCAB1001), which turns existing in-home cable TV outlets into Fast Ethernet outlets for HD video streaming and online gaming applications.

A series for Gigabit Ethernet gateways is designed for FTTC, FTTH and VDSL deployments. There are families of gateways for ADSL2+ and VDSL2.
