Gigabit speed in the living room

Smart TVs, streaming boxes such as Apple TV® or Amazon Fire TV®, Sky Receiver®, audio receivers and gaming consoles: A lightning-fast Internet connection is the basis for state-of-the-art home entertainment. Unfortunately, a new router rarely makes up part of a multimedia corner and WiFi signal strength is not high enough for enjoying streaming services and online games free of stuttering. devolo is launching the GigaGate as an all-in-one solution, a WiFi bridge for supplying all devices in a household multimedia centre with high-speed Internet.

Simple set-up and gigabit performance

The GigaGate Starter Pack base is connected directly to the router by an Ethernet cable. The GigaGate satellite is then positioned in the multimedia corner. The two GigaGate components now establish four simultaneous WiFi connections in the 5 GHz band automatically using self-aligning antennas. This technology maximizes the bandwidth between the GigaGate base and the GigaGate satellite. The devolo GigaGate features a transfer rate of up to 2 Gbps.
