[prMac.com] IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wichita, Kansas - February 21, 2008 - QuickerTek, the leader in wireless Apple products, has upgraded the high-end Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station (802.11n). Dualy Extreme with 1 Watt of RF power, enables the Base Station with additional speed and range - up to five times the standard wireless range. The increased power seeks out more distant wireless signals and locks onto them with twin 500 milliWatt transceivers (or 1 Watt Transceivers) coupled to two antennas that create two combined signals paths for up to five times more wireless range.
Several options are available featuring with 500 milliWatt of RF power (two 500 mW Transceivers) and another option with 1 Watt of RF power (two 1 Watt Transceivers). QuickerTek can install the Dualy Extreme on the customer's Base Station, or an already-upgraded Base Station can be purchased from QuickerTek complete.
Dualy Extreme is ideal for wireless networks at work, school, hotels, coffee shops - anywhere signal strength and speed are hampered by distance and common office and home wireless obstacles. The upgraded AirPort Base Station operates at the full 2.4GHz range using the high-speed MIMO capability.
Two 500 milliWatt or 1 Watt Transceivers inside Dualy Extreme reach out to access points and computers capable of 802.11b/g/n wireless networking, manufactured by a wide variety of common hardware vendors.
And the dual 3dBi antennas (one for each Transceiver) provide the speed necessary for 802.11n wireless that runs in the higher 2.4GHz wireless range. Dualy Extreme may be upgraded with even more powerful antennas for even greater distance and wireless speeds. Both antennas are attached via 3-foot cables so you can get the antennas up and away from common desktop wireless impediments.
Dualy Extreme is also designed to mimic the appearance of the Apple AirPort Base Station, so it blends nicely with other Apple equipment.
