The Arris SBG7600 is a next-generation WiFi Cable modem of ultra high speed. It uses Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) radio technologies. Furthermore it is inter-operable with other products that use these radio technologies. You may install a mobile app to sync the device and get security, internet access, parental control for the connected devices on your WiFi home network. Since this is a cable modem with Wi-Fi it’s possible to connect a computer or other network-enabled devices. This is done through either the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connections or one of the four Ethernet ports available.
The modem connects to the coaxial cable connection in your home. Finally, it also comes with a WPS button for quick and easy connection of WPS-enabled devices.
