High-power 802.11(b) radio solution for campus area network and wireless community networks.

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt">Solectek Corporation, a

leader in fixed wireless broadband networking, is entering the 802.11(b)

wireless LAN market with an extended range system solution. The AP500 series

product line is aimed at the user base that desires to have a large coverage

area around a single access point. Dr. Eric Lee, CEO of Solectek explains why

the company chose to enter the already crowded 802.11(b) market, “The consumer

sector is now all about prices without sacrificing the high-end features

required in the most demanding corporate applications. Obviously, we need to

offer something unique that will both be different and useful to the user base.

I believe extending the coverage area is something that has been overlooked and

we chose to address that void.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt"> </span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt">The AP500 series will offer

indoor ranges up to 1,200 feet (open space), more than three times more than

most 802.11b products in the market. Further ranges are possible with external

antennas. The product line includes an access point, client cards, and client

bridges for flexible indoor-outdoor configurations. The AP500 series is

complimented by the lower-cost AP200 series for short-range applications.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt">The AP500 series focuses on

large cell requirements and is particularly well suited to address the need for outdoor

extensions of your wireless networks. Applications include campus networking

for schools, colleges, and corporate campuses where many buildings are located

in close proximity. The clients can maintain seamless connectivity in and

between any of the buildings on campus. Such applications could extend to

outdoor coverage needs such as industrial sites, outdoor events, and

point-of-sales transactions.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt"> </span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt">AP500 is also designed to

serve the burgeoning wireless community networks where Internet access is provided to

clients in neighborhoods from a local point of distribution. Says Dr. Lee,

Customers have talked to us about low-cost, simple, high-power radio solutions

for some time. We feel that combining the mature 802.11(b) and our proprietary

radio technology is what they need. We are bringing a decade of

enterprise-level fixed wireless experience right down to the communities.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt"> </span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt"> Solectek also offers the

most flexible, feature-rich solutions for enterprises and larger ISP’s that

require longer distance, bandwidth control, heavy data traffic, Voice over IP,

and enhanced throughput Dr. Lee adds, “We now have solutions for every budget

and feature need. Customers can view Solectek as a one-stop shop for all things

broadband wireless.”</span></p>
