TORNADO Introduces "Wireless over Copper" Solution at CeBIT 2006
Spijkenisse, the Netherlands, Februari 15th 2006 - TORNADO, supplier of computer peripherals, introduces their first "wireless over copper" solution: a wireless extender called Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM). The Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM) enables consumers to easily extend the wireless signal of their 802.11 wireless access point by using regular copper (phone) wires. With this new solution, TORNADO provides full wireless broadband coverage at each location in a small office and home office environment.
The Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM) is a wireless extender for existing wireless users that is plugged into telephone outlets. The Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM) converts the wireless signal and passes it, through the existing copper phone wires, from an outlet near the access point to one or more remote outlets. The signal uses a frequency range different than ADSL and voice and therefore does not affect the quality of other services on the same line.
This new way of extending wireless connections reduces the transmission distance and guarantees the maximum bandwidth (higher speed) available from your 802.11 access point to the area in the building where it is needed.
Unlike wireless signals, Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM) performance is not impaired by interference from other wireless applications such as cordless phones and endures no loss in transmission because of concrete walls, floors or metal objects. Dead spots and low quality reception issues are gone forever. The Tornado 251 WirePlus(TM) delivers full wireless coverage in each corner of a building.
