EZ Connect™ N Wireless PCI Express Adapter Delivers Speed and Full Backward Compatibility
Barcelona, Spain – 17 May 2011. SMC Networks (www.smc.com), a leading provider of LAN hardware and broadband connectivity devices, today announced the launch of its new EZ Connect™ N Wireless PCI Express Adapter, the SMCWPCIeS-N.
Designed for the home and office, this wireless PCI Express adapter provides the speed, coverage, and security demanded by today’s wireless users. The SMCWPCIeS-N is Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ for full compliance with the IEEE 802.11b/g/n standards and is able to achieve wireless speeds of up to 150Mbps, enough to simultaneously stream video and audio, play online games, transfer large files, make VoIP calls, and surf the Internet.
Frank Emmerlich, European Marketing Manager, commented: “The SMCWPCIeS-N is perfect for customers that have a mix of 802.11b and g devices as it offers full backward compatibility with these earlier wireless standards while also supporting 802.11n, the state of the art wireless standard that added 40 MHz channels to the physical layer (PHY) to reach wireless speeds up to 150Mbps. Support for 802.11n means this new PCI Express adapter more than doubles the speed of wireless networks relying on 802.11g devices, yet is about the same price. In cost-conscious times, this creates real value for our customers.”
SMC Networks understands security is a key consideration in many home and business networking environments, that’s why the SMCWPCIeS-N supports the latest WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption standards, which prevent unauthorized access to wireless networks and ensure data is secure. Wireless security can also be set up easily using a Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) utility.
