Elevating Home WiFi with NETGEAR Orbi 970 Series

NETGEAR®, Inc. has introduced its latest innovation in the realm of home connectivity with the Orbi 970 Series. This new addition to the acclaimed Orbi line is equipped with cutting-edge antenna design and proprietary technology, aiming to revolutionize the WiFi experience. Drawing from over two decades of expertise in WiFi technology, the Orbi 970 Series promises unmatched performance, boasting speeds of up to 27 Gbps, alongside a sleek, space-efficient design and advanced antennas providing 360-degree coverage for any household layout.


In an era marked by the proliferation of high-speed internet, an increasing number of connected devices per household, and the growing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications like 4K/8K video streaming, HD Zoom calls, and immersive gaming, the necessity for faster WiFi speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity has become imperative. This is where WiFi 7 steps in. Building upon the groundwork laid by WiFi 6E, WiFi 7 expands the channels to 320 MHz, delivering unprecedented speeds and performance. The Orbi 970 Series harnesses the full potential of this new standard with innovative technology, ensuring seamless coverage throughout the home, catering to all devices simultaneously.

Setting itself apart from competitors, the Orbi system employs exclusive Quad-Band technology and Enhanced Dedicated Backhaul, leveraging WiFi 7 features such as multi-link operation (MLO) to create a dedicated 5 GHz band combined with a 6 GHz band. This configuration doubles the connection speed between the router and satellites, achieving a 10 Gig wireless backhaul for reduced latency and maximum speed. Additionally, the system’s Smart Connect feature intelligently selects the optimal WiFi band for each connected device, further enhancing performance.

The Orbi router features a 10 Gig internet port along with one 10 Gig and four 2.5 Gig Ethernet ports, ensuring compatibility with the fastest speeds available today. Its sleek, cylindrical design not only optimizes performance but also blends seamlessly into any home environment. With 12 high-performance internal antennas and powerful amplifiers, the Orbi system provides comprehensive coverage from wall to wall, front to back.

David Henry, President & GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR, expressed, “The Orbi 970 Series is another major milestone in delivering the extraordinary power of our patented Quad Band technology across the whole home – from the wine cellar to the game room to the backyard grill – with speeds up to 2.4x faster than WiFi 6.”

The Orbi 970 Series also comes bundled with one year of NETGEAR Armor™ Powered by Bitdefender®, offering comprehensive security for connected devices. The Orbi app facilitates convenient setup and network management from anywhere, ensuring a hassle-free experience for users.

For those requiring extended coverage, the Orbi 970 Series mesh system covers up to 10,000 square feet and supports up to 200 devices. Additional satellites can be added to further extend coverage, each equipped with one 10 Gig and two 2.5 Gig Ethernet ports for enhanced speed and reliability on wired devices.

With technical specifications including ultrawide bandwidth, 4K QAM, Multi-link Operation, Enhanced Dedicated Backhaul, and more, the Orbi 970 Series is primed to meet the demands of today’s hyper-connected homes.

The Orbi 970 Series is currently available in classic white and black limited editions, offering the following options: RBE973S, which includes a router and 2 satellites in a 3-pack configuration priced at S$3,799; RBE972S, featuring a router and 1 satellite in a 2-pack setup priced at S$2,799; and RBS970S, an add-on satellite available separately at S$1,499.
