Symantec, the US cyber security company is going to utilize the CeBIT 2018 for launching its Norton Setup Core Router having the advanced network security tools along with the parental control features, in Australia. But this launched Norton Core Router will cost approx hundreds of dollars for the time period of five-years.
Symantec, the company offering the security solutions claims that this device will offer the protection to smart devices from being hijacked by a botnet or virus. Once the users purchase this Norton Core Router device based on CeBIT 2018, will get an unlimited subscription of the Norton Setup and thus, extending its protection down to the smart devices, individually.
This CeBIT 2018 based Norton Core Router has been shaped like a sphere that is surmounted to sell for between $499 and $599. The most curious question that arises is whether the device is a router or overpriced security that might draw people within the annual security subscription.
For offering a better deal to its users, Symantec is providing the cloud backup of 25 GB for allowing them to sign in to the Norton’s cloud security.
Calling this device as ‘Core Security’ might sound some new but, its actually the Norton Setup i.e. Norton Security Premium that could easily purchased through the official Norton website, separately.
Once the one year plan of the Norton Core Router gets completed, the users need to pay $104 dollars per year for getting the new Norton Premium Protection License. This Norton Core Router has been installed with the processor of 1.7 GHz. Apart from this high speed processor; the device has number of additional features like RAM of 1 GB along with the eMMC Flash Memory of 4 GB, dual-band radios of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz supported by an AC wave 2 Wi-Fi of 802.11, just above MU-MIMO streaming technology.
The Norton Core Router, shaped like a sphere hides by an antenna tower having the size of 7 cms alonf with four dual-band antennae positioned within the phased array for offering the coverage of 365 degrees.
The directional antennae have the capabilities of tracking the user’s notebook placed in any direction, to boost the signals. It has been noticed while testing the Norton Core Router that it struggled a lot to keep itself top-performing AC2600 routers launched by other manufacturers.
The biggest plus point offered by the company, Symantec within this new device is easy to configure. All the users have to download the Norton Core App either to their Android or iOS device & create the Norton Setup Account. The procedure of setting up the router is similar to that of steps followed to set any compatible router with Google Wi-Fi app.
