The New Orbi WiFi System Combines Internet Devices

Orbi was one of the first WiFi hardware manufacturers to implement consumer mesh networks, making it affordable to spread the same WiFi signal across a larger distance, and the new Orbi WiFi System with Built-In Cable Modem is further expanding the capabilities of consumers' internet. As the name implies, the device is primarily an internet router, but it also has a modem built in, meaning that consumers can get even stronger internet if they use one of these new devices as a node in the mesh network.

The more attractive use case for the new Orbi WiFi System with Built-In Cable Modem is purchasing the device as one's primary modem. That not only eliminates the need to purchase two devices when setting up one's internet, but it makes it far more affordable to set up a mesh network as a result.
