Amped Wireless First to Bring 802.11ac Range Extender to Market
Amped Wireless has introduced the REA20 High Power 700mW Dual Band AC Wi-Fi Range Extender.
The REA20 is Amped Wireless' new flagship Wi-Fi range extender and the first in the industry to be available with 802.11ac technology. A universal range extender, it is capable of expanding any wireless network by repeating, amplifying and rebroadcasting signals from any Wi-Fi router. The industry-pioneering technology built into the REA20 will allow multiple users to download and stream HD or 4K media to different devices simultaneously without buffering delays. The REA20 delivers speeds up to three times faster than range extenders operating on the previous 802.11n Wi-Fi standard.
Compatible with any 802.11 a/b/g/n or ac Wi-Fi router, it features three high-gain antennas and ten power amplifiers, the most ever used in any Wi-Fi range extender. The amplifiers include two 2.4GHz amplifiers, four 5.0GHz 2-Stage amplifiers and four advanced, low-noise amplifiers. The cutting-edge technology packed into the REA20 gives it the ability to eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots, penetrate thick walls and extend Wi-Fi coverage by up to 10,000 square feet, while streaming high-quality media at faster speeds to multiple devices at once.
A USB port for file sharing and five gigabit wired ports are built into the REA20 for connecting additional wired devices such as TVs, game consoles, Blu-Ray players and more. The flagship Wi-Fi extender includes security features such as guest networks, adjustable Wi-Fi coverage controls, user access controls and support for the latest Wi-Fi security to provide users’ with a highly protected Wi-Fi experience.
All Amped Wireless products include Wi-Fi Analytic Tool Apps that provide advanced software applications for Android and Windows devices to assist in analyzing and optimizing Wi-Fi networks to deliver maximum speed and coverage. Amped Wireless products are backed by industry leading, U.S.-based, in-house technical support provided by Amped Concierges.
With a price tag of US$199.99, the REA20 is available from the Amped Wireless store. It will hit major retailers and online shops at the end of August.
