The American manufacturer is addressing the audience of users who do not want a universal routing solution, and are based on Bezeq's network infrastructure
Wait, wait. Before you dive into this post, it is recommended that you read the title of the post again - Netgear announces modem New VDSL.
Along with growing demand, which stems from the strengthening of the "wholesale market" companies, the lack of VDSL modems in the Israeli market has long been felt.
The need for this type of product stems from the desire of many customers to use universal routers, which do not include a modem and exhibit better capability and performance than those of integrated VDSL router.
Such simple routers have been recommended by many times and they included models sold abroad (such as theC1000A OrQ1000 Sold in EBAY) and those sold in Israel (such as theTD-W9970 Of TP-LINK or theDSL-G225 Of D-LINK).
Last week, Netgear announced a VDSL modem that adds another dimension to this image. The machine is called DM200, Including all Features The VDSL modem is supported by VDSL2 and Vectoring and is backward compatible with ADSL connections.
As expected, at the back you can find an RJ11 socket for connecting the telephone line and a single LAN port that operates at speeds of up to 100Mbps. In addition, a socket for connection can be found there Power Supply (12V, 0.5A), On / Off button and Reset button.
At the front of the modem are placed 3 LEDs - voltage, xDSL connection and LAN connection.
Although the LAN port is designed, first and foremost, to connect to a universal router (and if necessary, directly to the computer) the modem can be forced to function as a simple and weak router, devoid of wireless capability. Instructions for making this setting can be found In the user manual Of the DM200.
The DM200 will be available in the US in the coming months but in Europe its availability is much more attractive. At this point it can be ordered from stores British Amazon With a delivery date of about two and a half weeks. The cost of the DM200, including taxes and delivery to your home in Israel, is about £ 50, which translates to about NIS 250.
