Ultra-high performance wireless networking solutions compliant with 802.11n Draft 1.0
April 11th 2007 – USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company, has announced the availability of its Ndx Wireless Product Family. The new products use USRobotics’ Ndx wireless technology to deliver data throughput up to the equivalent of 270 Mbps bandwidth performance, and range up to five times greater than current, standard 802.11g products.
“Our Ndx products provide consumers and businesses with the enhanced range and throughput they’re looking for in the next generation of wireless products,” says Steven D. Dalrymple, USRobotics’ CEO. “They also deliver upon the commitment USRobotics made to ship products that are interoperable with products from other vendors, and will behave correctly when in close proximity to legacy 802.11b/g networks.”
Compliant with the IEEE 802.11n Draft 1.0 standard for wireless networking products, the Ndx family is also fully compatible with previous wireless standards and products, including those meeting the 802.11b and 802.11g standards, USRobotics’ own MAXg wireless product family, and other accelerated wireless technologies.
The Ndx family features five products aimed at advanced consumers and small- and medium-sized businesses looking for secure, flexible, and high performance wireless networking. They will be available in June at retailers and e-tailers throughout Europe and the Middle East. The products are:
