Amped Wireless is announcing the availability of the new BoostBand Technology firmware update for the REC15A High Power Compact AC Wi-Fi Range Extender.
By incorporating Boostband Technology, overall speed and performance of the REC15A is enhanced, as the former streamlines dual band network traffic between the extender and the router through a single Wi-Fi frequency band. When enabled, it will route all data through the fastest frequency band, typically the 5GHz 802.11ac connection, to capitalize on the increased bandwidth associated with the new Wi-Fi standard.
Utilizing a single frequency provides the REC15A more computing power to devote to delivering data packets faster, resulting in faster downloads, media streaming, and data transfers. With BoostBand, users can still connect to the range extender using both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies.
The REC15A retails at US$99.99, and is available for order from the Amped Wireless Store today. It is also set to release at all major retailers and online retailers within the next two weeks. You can download the latest firmware here.
