Like previous Orbis, the high-band 5 GHz radio is dedicated to backhaul duties, freeing the other three radios, including the new 6 GHz radio for servicing client devices. And like other NETGEAR routers and mesh systems, it comes with a trial of NETGEAR's Armor security suite.
All this new 6E Orbi goodness doesn't come cheap, however. The RBKE963 SKU (router and two satellites) will be available for preorder today in the US for $1,499.99 MSRP, and "shortly" in the UK on NETGEAR’s online stores, shipping "in time for the holidays". You can also get the RBKE963B Orbi WiFi 6E Black Edition for a limited time only (same price) on NETGEAR.com. The RBSE960 Add-on Satellite will run you $599 MSRP.
