[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas. - August 23, 2007 - QuickerTek has already developed an upgrade for the Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11n Base Station. The new N Base Station is already fast and has huge range, but the new QuickerTek N Antenna Upgrade offers even better wireless performance.
The QuickerTek N Antenna Array brings the antenna outside the Base Station case, which enables better signal gathering capabilities. The "array" is a set of matched antennas to extend the 802.11n specification requiring multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) to deliver the high speed "n" wireless networking experience.
Using the included 4 footcoax cable, customers can position the AirPort Extreme N Base Station for best wireless performance in their own office or home. Often placing the Base Station up and out of the way of common office clutter at desktop level, provides the highest possible performance.
Once an AirPort Extreme Base Station is upgraded, it retains backward compatibility with previous wireless standards. It works with all IEEE 802.11 b/g/n networks and performs to it's full speed (near 300 mbps) potential with 802.11n rated hardware.
To have QuickerTek upgrade a customer's Base Station, the customer simply ships it to QuickerTek, we perform the upgrade and then return ship it back to the customer using the customer's shipping preference the same day it was received.
The Upgrade kit includes the antenna array, 4 foot coax cable and detailed instruction manual. The upgrade is rather detailed and it should not be attempted by someone without any prior upgrade experience.
The new Antenna Array Upgrade can be purchased three different ways: a customer-installed upgrade is available for $129.95 USD; QuickerTek can install it on the customer's Base Sation for $179.95 USD and finally an already-upgraded Base Station is available for $349.95 USD for plug- and-play use.
