|CHINO, CA – March 20, 2014 – Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long-range wireless solutions for the home and office, today announced the availability of the new BoostBand™ Technology firmware update for the recently announced REC15A. The REC15A is a High Power Compact AC Wi-Fi Range Extender that extends the range of an existing Wi-Fi network by an impressive 5,000 sq. ft with ultra-fast 802.11ac speeds.
Now with the help of Amped Wireless’ exclusive Boostband™ Technology, the REC15A is even more powerful. This new technology increases the overall speed and performance of the Range Extender by streamlining dual band network traffic between the Extender and the router through a single Wi-Fi frequency band. When enabled, BoostBand™ Technology will route all data through the fastest frequency band, typically the 5GHz 802.11ac connection, to take advantage of the increased bandwidth associated with the new Wi-Fi standard. Utilizing a single frequency provides the REC15A with more computing power to devote to delivering data packets faster, resulting in faster downloads, media streaming, and data transfers. With BoostBand™ Technology, users can still connect to the Range Extender using both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies.
“Our core focus, as a brand, is providing reliable long range Wi-Fi connections to our customers,” stated Lacey Neddo, Brand/Marketing Manager of Amped Wireless. “Range and speed go hand-in-hand as a slow, far-reaching signal is just as miserable as a fast, short-reaching signal. The development of our BoostBand™ Technology is just one more advancement in our pursuit to creating the best Wi-Fi solutions on the market. We give you extreme range, with ultra-fast speeds.”
At a mere three inches tall by five inches wide, the REC15A can be discreetly installed in any outlet. The REC15A can also be set up wirelessly, using a tablet or laptop, in minutes. 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. One additional wired port is built into the REC15A for connecting PCs, TVs, Blu-ray™ players, game consoles and any other network device. The REC15A is equipped 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 to reel in the signal strength.
The REC15A has a retail price of $99.99 and is available for order from the Amped Wireless Store today. It will be available at major brick and mortar retailers and online retailers within the next two weeks. For more information and to place orders, visit: REC15A.
