Netgear Brings Beamforming+ To Select 802.11ac Routers
If you're wondering what exactly the tech is, listen up. Netgear says that Beamforming+ is a "smart, signal-focusing technology that extends coverage, reduces interference and dead spots, and boosts the speed of your 802.11ac WiFi connections." Basically, Netgear took the Beamforming standard and tuned it up for its own designs, recognizing the location of a wireless device on your network and directing the WiFi signal directly at the device, constantly checking and tracking moving devices such as your mobile phones and tablets.
This targeted approach amplifies the WiFi signal by adjusting the phase of the transmitted signal, delivering stable WiFi connections for voice and video. The result is a highly tuned WiFi network that optimizes overall wireless performance and delivers the experiences you want, such as fast downloads, clearer voice calls, uninterrupted HD video, and lag-free gaming.
