The Industry’s First Quad-Radio 802.11n Access Point, operating at Full Strength with Standard Power-over-Ethernet, Highlights Series of Technology Innovations

New York and Tel Aviv, March 25, 2008 – Extricom, a leading provider of high-performance enterprise-class wireless solutions for converged voice (VoWLAN), data, video, and location-based services, today announced its new suite of 802.11n draft 2.0 compliant products. Extricom’s fourth-generation solution is the only system to enable disruption-free introduction of full-performance 802.11n in the enterprise, for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands, at the lowest cost-per-port.

It has become clear that, in order to achieve the promise of greater bandwidth, all solutions announced to date impose three disruptive and expensive conditions on any 802.11n implementation: limit ‘N’ devices to the 5GHz band, leave the 2.4GHz band only for legacy devices, and install costly non-standard power-over-Ethernet (PoE) schemes to meet the increased energy demands of 802.11n access points (APs). In stark contrast to this, the Extricom WLAN System, based on the unique Channel Blanket™ architecture, avoids the technical and deployment obstacles presented by all other vendor solutions.
