New Antenna Extends the Wireless Range of Apple Time Capsule

March 19, 2008 in Hardware (E)

[] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek, the leader in wireless Apple products, has developed an antenna upgrade for both models of the Apple Time Capsule wireless backup system. This upgrade offers up to 50% greater wireless coverage than the stock. The increased RF power allows backups from more distant wireless signals and though more walls and floors.

The QuickerTek Time Capsule Antenna Array repositions three much stronger 3dBi antennas outside the Time Capsule case, enabling better signal range and speed during backups - penetrating walls and floors. The antenna array are matched to extend the 802.11n signal through multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) to deliver highest speed "n" wireless networking.

The included 2.4-foot coax cable allows customers the ability to position the antenna for the best wireless performance in each specific application. Placing the Antenna Upgrade up away from common office clutter at desktop level produces the best wireless signals. Once placed, the antennas can be articulatged into the optimal position for maximum wireless performance.

Many wireless users are not aware that a single wall cuts wireless signal by 25% - so you can see how just a couple of walls and a floor can seriously slash the stock wireless speed and range.

The Time Capsule Antenna Upgrade works with all IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n devices and performs to it's full speed (near 300 mbps) potential with 802.11n rated hardware.

The Antenna Upgrade kit includes the antenna array, coax cable and detailed instruction manual. The upgrade should not be attempted by someone without any prior upgrade experience.

QuickerTek can upgrade a customer's Time Capsule when the customer 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. QuickerTek also offers an already upgraded 500GB or 1TB Time Capsule.

This Time Capsule Upgrade is ideal where signal strength and speed are hampered by distance and common office and home wireless obstacles - anything that blocks a straight line-of-sight wireless path.

* Installation Kit $129.95
* QuickerTek Installation $200

1TB Time Capsule:
