Press release date: January 6, 2014
LAS VEGAS -- Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long-range wireless solutions for the home and office, today announced the debut of its REC15A High Power Compact 802.11ac Wi-Fi Range Extender. The discreet, wall-plug unit extends the signal of any standard 802.11a/b/g/n or ac Wi-Fi router by repeating, amplifying, and redistributing the signal in a new extended location, such as a far bedroom, backyard, or office.
Standard Wi-Fi devices have an output power of a mere 50 milliwatts (mW). While the REC15A packs up to 500 milliwatts (mW) of Wi-Fi output power into a compact, elegant design - to eliminate dead spots and achieve more range. With four total amplifiers and a high gain, dual band antenna, the REC15A provides up to 5,000 sq. ft. of extended coverage. In addition, the REC15A features ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and simultaneously repeats both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz Wi-Fi signals.
"As more devices like tablets, smartphones, laptops and routers, supporting the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard become available, the need for faster, longer range Wi-Fi continues to grow," stated Jason Owen, CEO of Amped Wireless." With the introduction of the REC15A, Amped remains at the forefront of Wi-Fi extending solutions by offering another high performance, more affordable option for extending 802.11ac Wi-Fi coverage."
At a mere 3" tall by 5" wide, the REC15A can be discreetly installed in any outlet. The REC15A can be set up wirelessly, using a tablet or laptop. Just simply plug it into an outlet, access the web menu, and select a single or dual band network to extend. It's compatible with all brands of standard Wi-Fi routers and Internet service provider gateways. An additional wired port is built into the REC15A for connecting PCs, TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles and any other network device. The REC15A comes with top security features including parental controls like restricted access for certain users, time of day schedules to limit the network's availability, and adjustable Wi-Fi coverage settings.
All Amped Wireless products include the Wi-Fi Analytics Tool App, free for Android and Windows devices to help users analyze and optimize their networks. The app allows users to get the maximum speed and coverage from their device. All Amped products are also backed by industry leading, U.S.-based, in-house Elite Technical Support provided by Amped Concierges.
Amped Wireless will be talking to press and showcasing their latest innovations at Pepcom's Digital Experience! at the Mirage Events Center from 7pm-10:30pm.
