According to Cox Communication, the new top of the line home networking device called the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway is a combination of two network devices. An ARRIS 3.1, 2-port, wired gigabit router, and a NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK, 802.11ac, dual-band Wi-Fi router.
The combination of these two routers gives the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway its advertised abilities.
ARRIS is a network-hardware making company based out of The United Kingdom. The company has been making networking hardware since 1995.
Who Is The Manufacturer Of The Cox Panoramic Gateway Modem/Router?
As a result of making excellent hardware for the past 25 years, the company has built itself a shining reputation within the telecommunication industry. The ARRIS company – which has now merged with the networking giant CommScope – is known for its high end, extremely fast, gigabit routers. It’s also the reason why a big telecommunication company such as Cox Communication has decided to use an ARRIS router within their new home networking product.
As per the information given by Cox Communication, the ARRIS the router used in their panoramic Wi-Fi gateway is a 3.1 2-port, wired gigabit router.
The 3.1 refers to the DOCSIS version. The DOCSIS 3.1 is a newer DOCSIS version. It gives the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway much higher networking speeds than if it were using a DOCSIS 3.0 version.
A 2-port router is a router with 2 ethernet ports for a wired connection. When your router has the term, ‘gigabit wired connection’, written in its specifications, it means that the router has 2 ethernet ports that support gigabit speeds for wired connections.
So choosing this ARRIS router gives the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway the ability to have gigabit-speed connections.
The second router used inside the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway is made by NETGEAR. NETGEAR is a network-hardware making multinational company whose main headquarter is based in California, the United States of America. Other than its main branch the company has branches spread out between 25 other countries. The company has been making networking hardware since 1996.
As a result of making excellent hardware for the past 24 years, the company has built itself a shining reputation within the telecommunication industry.
NETGEAR is not just a major player when it comes to making, top of the line routers, it’s also considered a giant in retail and as an internet service provider.
The routers made by NETGEAR are considered one of the best in the world, its new products have all the new and exciting features like the much-coveted gigabit speeds, higher gigahertz frequency channels, MI-MIMO, etc. As a result of Netgear’s excellence within the networking industry, Cox Communications decided to use its router when making the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway.
The second router used inside the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway is a NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK, 802.11ac, dual-band Wi-Fi router.
802.11ac refers to a set of Wi-Fi protocols, and 802.11ac is the fifth generation commonly known as 5G. This Wi-Fi protocol supports 5 gigahertz frequency band and its subsequent channels. So a panoramic Wi-Fi a gateway that uses this technology will provide faster 5 gigahertz speeds.
A dual-band router like the NIGHTHAWK supports two frequency bands, a 5 gigahertz band, and a 2.4 gigahertz band. As a result, the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway can support a 5 gigahertz frequency band for faster data transfers and a 2.4 gigahertz frequency band for signal longevity.
Aside from it being a rental product, the panoramic Wi-Fi gateway is a high-end networking device.
