Check this out. The gear is ready, at least at the Wifi level. No 
mention on fibre. It would be interesting to know if there is 
fibre-ready equipment on show at the CES this year. Ash or any other 
linker, are you there?


Continuing the NETGEAR legacy of innovation, the company is a 
double-honoree in the CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering 
Award program that recognizes the industry's hottest product 
categories. Winners in the Home Networking category are NETGEAR 
Stora(TM) (MS2110), a home media storage server, and the NETGEAR 
Wireless-N 300 Router with DSL Modem - Mobile Broadband Edition 
(DGN2200M), which integrates 802.11n Wireless, ADSL2+ and 3G/4G/WiMAX 
for dual WAN capability with failover protection.

"Many of the new products introduced at CES are increasingly 
connected not only to the Internet, but also to each other to improve 
the consumer's entertainment experience. However, for these devices 
to connect to each other, it's essential to have the right network in 
place to deliver faster speeds over larger areas and with greater 
reliability," said Patrick Lo, founder and CEO of NETGEAR. "Like 
plumbing and electricity, the network has become a basic, must-have 
utility. NETGEAR provides the essential technology for networks to 
run efficiently - and we do it better than anyone."
