Wireless LAN System features tripled capacity.
February 23, 2006 -
TrueReuse(TM) for Wireless LAN System brings together Interference-Free(TM) channel blanket topology for achieving wide coverage and seamless mobility, with real-time frequency reuse inside channel blanket, for multiplication of total capacity system-wide. With TrueReuse enabled, system is able to decide when to permit multiple access points to transmit to multiple clients, simultaneously on same channel, without causing co-channel interference, even in dense access point deployments.

Extricom Sets New Industry Standard with TrueReuse Wireless LAN
Technology Triples WLAN Capacity to Power Advanced Wireless Services
NEW YORK, February 8/ -- Extricom, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance
wireless LAN infrastructure solutions for the enterprise, today unveiled TrueReuse(TM), a breakthrough technology that sets a new standard for Wi-Fi(802.11) capacity.
At DEMO 2006, Extricom formally introduced TrueReuse via a live demonstration that achieved a three-fold increase in channel capacity on a system deployed entirely within the confines of the conference ballroom. This level of channel reuse and corresponding capacity increase, in such a constrained space, is unparalleled by other competitive offerings.
"Capacity is rapidly replacing coverage as the key element in the design and deployment of enterprise-class wireless LANs," said Craig J. Mathias, a Principal with the wireless and mobile advisory firm Farpoint Group (Ashland, MA). "The ability to dynamically manage radio bandwidth to maximize throughput for multiple classes of traffic will become a core requirement for all enterprise installations going forward."
The release of TrueReuse for the Extricom Wireless LAN System brings together two complementary and powerful ideas: the Interference-Free(TM) channel blanket topology, for achieving robust coverage and seamless mobility with radically simple deployment, and real-time frequency reuse inside the channel blanket, for a multiplication of total capacity system-wide. With TrueReuse enabled, the system is able to decide when to permit multiple access points to transmit to multiple clients, simultaneously on the same channel, without causing co-channel interference, even in a dense access point deployment.
"TrueReuse is the path to the long talked-about Gigabit wireless LAN," said Gideon Rottem, CEO and Co-Founder of Extricom. "Combined with our architecture's robust coverage, seamless mobility, and ease of deployment and maintenance, the Extricom WLAN System delivers the large-scale, multi-service flexibility that enterprises are seeking."
General availability of TrueReuse is expected early in the second quarter of this year.
Extricom designs high-performance, enterprise-class Wireless LAN infrastructure solutions for data, voice (VoWLAN), video and other real-time, mobile and mission-critical applications. Extricom's unique technology enables radically simplified deployment, dramatically lower total cost of ownership, and the co-existence of bandwidth-intensive voice and data services, all on the same WLAN system, without compromise to capacity, coverage, seamless mobility and security. Extricom is privately held, with strategic investors that include Motorola, Magnum Communications Fund, and Vertex Venture Capital. Learn more at www.extricom.com.
