Netgear’s Orbi Outdoor Satellite extends your Orbi home network to the yard
Netgear has a new (and pricey) addition for your Orbi Home WiFi System. The company recently announced the Orbi Outdoor Satellite. As its name suggests the basic idea is to extend your Wi-Fi network beyond the house and into the yard. That way you’ll never again drop your connection while taking out the garbage. The weatherized device is available now with an MSRP of $330.
Netgear says a single Outdoor Satellite adds an additional 2,500 square feet to an Orbi network. Designed for both home and commercial deployment (the latter when paired with Netgear’s Orbi Pro for Small Businesses), the RBK50Y can separate guest and employee traffic. It also offers a dedicated admin network.
