Norton Core™ is a secure, high-performance WiFi router that helps protect your home network and an unlimited number of your connected devices, including computers, mobile and smart home devices against malware, viruses, hackers, and cybercriminals before they can infiltrate your home and compromise your personal information.
The holiday season is upon us once again and in this day and age that usally means that new technology is on our shopping lists. From the latest model smartphones to current generation video game consoles and tablets, we are connected via WiFi more than ever before. With all of those devices connected and battling for bandwith in the home, accessability and safety are paramount. One thing most people don’t take into account while upgrading to the newest gadgets is our aging routers. Routers project our internet signal through the air that allows our devices to share the bandwith. In order to get the most out of our newer devices we need a rputer that can handle the workload without slowing down or dropping the signal entirely. The new Norton Core™ Secure WiFi Router could be just what you are looking for this holiday season.
The Norton Core™ is one of the most advanced routers on the market today. Not only is it visually pleasing with its multi-faceted aesthetic properties, it features a 1.7Ghz dual core processor and 1GB RAM and 4GB Flash memory its power can keep up with the most demanding devices. 2 USB 3.0 ports and 3 LAN ports provide room for wired devices such as desktops and external hard drives too. It utilizes IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac protocols for older and newer devices to take advantage no matter what bandwith your device is capable of. Core supports speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, ensuring blazing fast 4K streaming and lag-free gaming on a Dual Band 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz spectrum. The Norton Core router even looks into the future by providing technology that most devices aren’t even capable of yet. Its 4×4 AC2600 MU-MIMO technology allows for simultaneous beamforming of internet signal to 4 devices at once! Older routers only allow a single device at a time to access signals before letting another have a turn. Usually this doesn’t affect things too much as it happens in rapid succession, but MU-MIMO (Multiple User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) breaks up this bandwidth into separate, individual streams that devices can share equally.
Once you replace your old router, just download the Norton Core™ app and follow the prompts to setup. The app allows you to access and monitor your connections for each device on the network. You can manage your childrens’ screen time, control time limits and set content filters, you can even disable any device on the network at the touch of a button!And of course Norton is well known for their virus protection, and they decided to include that feature built into the Norton Core™! It automatically notifies you via the app of any malicious websites or trojan horse software that would seek to infect your investments. It provides you with a network security score and gives advice on how to improve that score over time. Automatic updates will constantly keep you on top of the game with the latest software and security patches as well.
So if you are looking for a gift for a tech savvy family that seems to have it all already or just looking to upgrade due to an influx of high tech gadgetry, please consider the Norton Core Secure WiFi Router from Best Buy and you’ll never have to worry about slowdown or security issues again.
