Arada and Netgear presents innovations for Optimal Wireless Router Signal
Company Arada Systems, developers of innovative and tailored Wi-Fi technology, and NETGEAR, Inc. a worldwide networking company that offers state-of-art products to customers, businesses and Internet service providers, have combined the efforts in order to provide optimal signal performance and range in the new N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router - Premium Edition (WNDR3800).
This new device was showcased at the 2011 International CES show, January 6-9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. WNDR3800 is built by utilizing of Arada's "Auto Channel Selection" (ACS) and "Dynamic Channel Selection" (DCS) technologies.

Having the general proliferation of wireless devices in the limited 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, interference leading to performance problems is a continuously growing issue. Classical attitude was, when interference scanning has only been provided through a backend controller or dedicated external devices. These solutions are extremely expensive and do not switch channels to boost the performance in a dynamic manner. The new ACS/DCS feature means the NETGEAR WNDR3800 is the first absolutely unique router that automatically scans the environment to dynamically choose the best and optimal wireless channel with the least amount of interference. This feature drastically improves all the performance of networking, including VoIP communications.

"Other routers on the market stay fixed on a certain channel which users typically don't change. In the end, all the devices in a neighborhood could be running on the same shared channel leading to slow connections for everyone," states Vivek Pathela, VP and GM of Home/Consumer Products at NETGEAR. "Our new NETGEAR WNDR3800 Premium Edition router with Arada's ACS/DCS automatically operates on the most clear and open channel. That may mean Channel 1 in the morning, but once neighboring networks get busy at night, Channel 9 may become the best channel that the router is automatically reconfigured to." Maintained by threshold indicators based on real-life situations, Arada's ACS/DCS feature precisely detects all interfering wireless signals in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands including those from microwave ovens, cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors or neighboring WLAN networks.

"ACS/DCS interference detection and dynamic channel switching happens in the background and therefore without disruption to users," states Praveen Singh, Arada Systems' President and CEO. "In rigorous real-life testing scenarios ACS/DCS was found to be extremely reliable. There was no disruption to online video streaming nor Skype-based VoIP calls while switching channels to avoid interference. The end result is much better application performance overall. Should the default thresholds need adjustment, the user can easily change them." The new NETGEAR WNDR3800 with Arada's ACS/DCS will be showcased at the 2011 International CES show in the South Hall Lower Level, meeting room MP25975. To make an appointment, contact
