devolo
Streaming 4K video, hi-res audio, gaming and fast NAS access - a stable, lightning-fast Internet and network connection is the basis for state-of-the-art home entertainment. Aachen, Germany-based devolo AG has created GigaGate, a new high-speed WiFi bridge that transmits a gigabit Internet signal from a router to the multimedia corner of a living room. With a transmission capacity of up to 2 Gbps, the bridge creates a precise WiFi connection that delivers a fast Internet connection exactly where it‘s needed: for smart TVs, streaming boxes, gaming consoles and all other multimedia devices.

Simple set-up, maximum performance

The devolo GigaGate Starter Kit consists of two components: the Base and the Satellite. The Base is connected to the router using a network cable. Utilising high-speed WiFi in the 5 GHz band, the GigaGate Base automatically connects to the Satellite via beamforming. The maximum transmission speed between the Base and Satellite is 2 Gbps. Communication between GigaGate components is encrypted using WPA2, specifically AES 128-bit. Both Starter Kit components are ready to use immediately. Simply set up, switch on and get going.

The Satellite, featuring a gigabit port and four multimedia ports (Fast Ethernet), provides ample capacity reserves and connection options for all Internet-capable multimedia devices at the location of use. In addition, the Satellite offers 2.4 GHz WiFi at up to 300 Mbps for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, etc. This is why the devolo GigaGate is the ideal all-in-one solution for also enjoying full Internet speed in the living room.

Home entertainment with the perfect Internet connection

Streaming services like iTunes®, Netflix®, Amazon Prime®, Sky Go® and Maxdome® make enjoying videos on the family couch more convenient than ever before. A multimedia corner in a living room needs a fast, stable Internet connection for these services to reach their full potential. In many cases, a router‘s WiFi signal is not sufficient for enjoying multimedia content in the living room at the best possible quality free of stutter.

devolo GigaGate closes this gap and delivers high-speed Internet precisely where it is needed. Supplying multiple rooms is no problem at all: additional Satellites are available separately. Up to eight Satellites can be connected to a single Base.

Price, availability and technical details

devolo GigaGate is now available in stores. The package consisting of a Base and Satellite costs 229.90 euros (RSP). An individual Satellite is available for the recommended retail price of 139.90 euros. devolo provides a three-year manufacturer‘s warranty for all components.
