Quickertek, Inc. Releases 27db Transceiver for AirPort Base Station;
Adds up to 1/2 Mile Line-of-Sight Range!
[WICHITA, KS] Feb 14, 2005 — QuickerTek, Inc. announced the
availability of a new Wi-Fi transceiver designed to dramatically
increase the effective signal range of the AirPort and AirPort Extreme
Base Stations. It will add up to 1/2 mile line-of-sight. This product
works by not only transmitting a more powerful signal, but also using a
LNA (low noise amplifier) to increase the receiver sensitivity.
If you have Wi-Fi range issues, this is the solution for you . Plus,
the user can add one of these to each end of the network if needed. The
transceiver is also great for point-to-point systems, college dorms,
distant AP’s like house boats trying to connect to wireless access
points etc. Typical installations would include classrooms or fixing
range problems with your ITunes and AirPort Express by adding this to
the PowerBook or Desktop.
The 27db transceiver operates on all 2.4GHz, Wi-Fi systems. The
transceiver is Wi-Fi compliant, supporting both 802.11g and 802.11b.
and works with both OS9.x and OS10.x systems. This product is designed
especially for Apple’s Airport Extreme wireless systems and allows the
maximum power output allowed by the FCC. Apple wireless products have
RF output of 30mW; our product is 500mW.
Rick Estes, President of QuickerTek said,” Adding the 27db transceiver
to an AirPort Base Station configuration is a lot like adding 6 base
stations to your system which will get the maximum Wi-Fi performance.”
This transceiver works on Apple Base Stations (Graphite, Snow, and both
Extremes models). It comes with a 2.2Dbi antenna, but all other
QuickerTek omni and directional Base Station antennas can be added.
The product can also be added to any Mac desktop that has Apple’s
AirPort and AirPort Extreme cards as well as the Base Stations. The
Transceiver can also be bundled with a Buffalo Tech PC Card (or any PC
Card with a external antenna port.)
The kit comes with mounting brackets, adapter cable, wall mounted power
supply and utility software CD. The product does not require any
The 27db Transceiver has a list price of $149.00 and is available from
stock to one week.
QuickerTek is a recognized leading innovator of antennas and RF
products for Apple products.
