NETGEAR RANKED AS LEADING NAS/UNIFIED STORAGE VENDOR IN 2011

NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR),a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced that Gartner, Inc., has ranked NETGEAR the number one vendor in NAS (network attached storage)/unified storage system units. NETGEAR sold more units worldwide than any other vendor. In addition, in terms of revenue, NETGEAR is ranked number one for NAS/unified storage systems under $5,000, number three for systems under $25,000, and number six overall.

Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, recently published their Market Share: Network-Attached Storage/Unified Storage Worldwide 2011 report on March 14, 2012. The results place NETGEAR alongside the largest traditional enterprise storage vendors. NETGEAR moved up two positions to become the sixth largest overall NAS vendor in worldwide revenue, advanced one position to number three in $25,000 segment revenue and maintained its revenue leadership position in the $5,000 or less market segment. In addition, Gartner reports that NETGEAR’s revenue growth rate was more than double the market average in the $25,000 unified storage segment and nearly twice the overall iSCSI market average. These results further confirm customer preference for reliable, affordable and simple offerings over traditionally expensive and complex solutions.

“We’re a growing small business that has experienced a disaster recovery first hand,” said John Wages, owner of a Sir Speedy printing franchise. “No one should go through an event like what our family and our business did when a fire hit the office. It’s just not realistic for us to purchase expensive and complicated offerings from larger storage vendors, but our data is still critical to our livelihood. We’re very glad we chose NETGEAR."

"Last year alone over 100,000 businesses selected NETGEAR storage solutions, choosing NETGEAR more often than any other NAS vendor in the world," said Drew Meyer, senior director of product line management at NETGEAR. "It’s clear that traditional enterprise storage vendors are not aligned with the needs of customers and channel partners evaluating solutions in the entry-level unified storage segment. We are very pleased to have Gartner’s confirmation of our market leadership."

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E
