Marvell today announced a draft 802.11n single-stream Wi-Fi device.
The Marvell 88W8786 supports bit rates up to 150 Mbps and has been sampling with "multiple customers" since "mid 2008". The company said products using the device are expected to be in production this quarter.
NETGEAR introduced two new draft 11n dual-band routers, a 3G router, two networked media players and a diskless version of its popular ReadyNAS Pro six-bay NAS. The company also announced new service-provider-only products and a new HomePlug AV powerline to Ethernet bridge.
Ralink Technology today announced a 450 Mbps, 3 stream, draft 802.11n router chipset with beamforming technology.
Guess we missed this one in the flurry of CES releases. On Monday, Iomega announced two Home Media Network Hard Drives that will hit store shelves later this month at MSRPs of $159.99 for 500 GB and $229.99 for 1 TB.
The single-drive NASes run EMC's LifeLine Home software and have iTunes, UPnP AV and DLNA media servers, gigabit Ethernet LAN connection, USB 2.0 port for printer sharing and storage expansion and EMC Retrospect Express backup software bundled in for Windows and Mac OS client backup. Also bundled is 2 GB of free MozyHome online storage.
SanDisk announced its Ultra Backup USB portable flash drives. The drives are designed to protect photo, music, video and other types of digital files with the touch of a button and no software installation.
The drive protects backed-up files with password-protected access control and AES hardware-based encryption.
The Ultra Backup ships in April in capacities of 8 GB - 64 GB with MSRPs between $39.99 and $199.99.
