AirEqualizer Wins Network Optimization News Innovation Award

LAFAYETTE, Colo., Nov. 13, 2007 -- Network Optimization News (, an online information technology magazine, today announced that the AirEqualizer wireless access point by APconnections has been chosen by its editors as the best new 802.11 wireless technology innovation of 2007.

"We knew this technology was innovative and this award just further confirms it. There is nothing else on the market that can stretch your 802.11 operational range like the AirEqualizer," said Art Reisman, CEO of APconnections. "With our technology, you simply identify the overly taxed APs and selectively replace them with AirEqualizers. The rest of your network technology remains unchanged."

APconnections adapted the award-winning technology behind its widely popular NetEqualizer network optimization appliance in order to create the AirEqualizer. When the access point is congested, the AirEqualizer's fairness algorithm favors business class applications so that large downloads don't slow down latency sensitive applications such as VoIP and video as well as ERM, CRM and other business critical applications.

In addition to the equalizing technology, AirEqualizer comes with standard commercial AP features, including authentication, billing, re-direction, routing, and firewall protection. The AirEqualizer can also be used as a proven hidden node solution.

Like the NetEqualizer, the AirEqualizer is designed to fit easily into any network with minimal setup time. The technology doesn't require users to purchase products from any single equipment supplier, like many other hidden node solutions.
