Netgear is looking to strengthen its reputation in Saudi Arabia even further during this year’s GITEX Saudi Arabia. The wireless networking vendor is once again lining up alongside its valued in-country channel partners to ensure that the Netgear brand and product portfolio is well positioned during the show. Netgear has announced that its RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N routers have become the first wireless networking products in the industry to ship with Intel’s ‘connect with Centrino’ certification. The branded networking products provider’s routers (WNR834B and WNR854T) have successfully passed the certification process ensuring compatibility and interoperability with Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N. “As Netgear always strives to develop the most innovative products on the market, we are proud to be the first networking vendor to achieve the new ‘connect with Centrino’ certification,” said Ahmad Zeidan, channel sales manager at Netgear Middle East. “This delivers a strong, irrefutable message to our customers in regards to the performance, interoperability and compatibility. During the certification process, the RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N Routers were not only tested for compatibility with Intel(R) Next-Gen Wireless-N, but were evaluated for performance, extended range and the ability to eliminate WiFi dead spots.” Samir Al-Shamma, general manager Gulf countries at components powerhouse Intel said: “Intel established the ‘connect with Centrino’ programme to ensure that users of Centrino mobile technology receive superior rate, range, and robustness in their wireless network.” Netgear announced in late 2006 that its sales hit US$2m in its first six months of operations in the Middle East, confirming the vendor’s arrival as a major player in the regional sector. The company puts its success down to its innovative and user-friendly range of products, which cover key areas, such as wireless networking, LAN hubs and switches, power over ethernet, and voice over internet protocol (VoIP).
