QuickerTek Upgrades the New Apple AirPort Express
November 21, 2012 in Accessories
[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek has announced the first and only upgraded Apple AirPort Express. While the AirPort Express is a great product, sometimes you just need a little more range than it provides right out of the box. To respond to this, QuickerTek's upgrade puts two powerful 3dBi antennas on top, giving it a 20% boost to its signal strength, with a corresponding increase in range. No extra software is needed, so connecting to your network is just as simple as it is with the original AirPort Express. It works just as easily as before- it's just stronger.
But while this alone is noteworthy, QuickerTek went the extra mile to make it even better than the antenna upgrade alone could provide. QuickerTek's connectors allow you to use other antennas such as a high gain omni directional or directional antenna (also available from QuickerTek) to match the unique situations for different users.
If you want to upgrade the antennas it's easy too. The hard work for upgrading them has already been done with the addition of the connectors. Just take the old antenna off, and screw the new antenna or antenna cable on. If you have a long one story building or one that's several stories, QuickerTek's upgrade to the AirPort Express is flexible enough to accommodate almost any situation.
* Extends the range of Wi-Fi using external antenna
* 20% increase in signal strength from existing unit
* It has the same footprint as the original unit
* No 3rd party software required
"We love the fact that Apple has made an access point that you can open up and make better," said Rick Estes, owner of QuickerTek. "We've taken advantage of this." QuickerTek is always thinking about ways to make everyone's life easier. This is done either by making totally new products, or by taking a good product and making into a great product, as they did with the upgrade to the AirPort Express.
