Australian operator Telstra has deployed the NETGEAR DOCSIS 3.0 AC1900 Cable Data Gateway as part of the new Telstra Gateway Max. This service is designed to give customers up to three times faster WiFi speeds on their home networks by combining DOCSIS 3.0 capabilities with next-gen dual-band AC1900 WiFi (600+1300 Mbps).

Instead of broadcasting a WiFi signal to a wide area, NETGEAR's gateway, the C6300BD, uses beamforming+ technology to focus the WiFi signal directly to each device. The technology can be supported on older devices that don't have beamforming capabilities built in because it is implicit in the gateway.

The C6300BD utilizes high power amplifiers and an advanced antennae design to offer extended WiFi coverage. An integrated 4-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and USB 2.0 ports provide enhanced data networking capabilities. In addition to multi-channel DOCSIS 3.0 bonding, the NETGEAR C6300BD has an additional Gigabit Ethernet WAN connectivity port for flexible WAN connectivity options.
