Product Introduction: [International CES 2015] Amped Wireless Range Extenders boost Wi-Fi coverage to 10,000 square feet
By Amped Wireless 2014-12-30
December 29th, 2014, Chino Hills, CA - Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless solutions for the home and office, today announced the debut of two new, first of their kind, high power, ultra-fast AC1200 and AC1750, plug-in Wi-Fi range extenders. The REC22A and REC33A are easy to install, simply plug them into any wall outlet, and after a few minutes of set up they'll boost Wi-Fi coverage by up to 10,000 sq ft, eliminate dead spots and improve Wi-Fi connections at ultra-fast Wi-Fi speeds never before available from a plug-in Wi-Fi range extender.
Most homes have numerous laptops and mobile devices that connect to the in-home Wi-Fi network on a daily basis, often at the same time. Power struggles ensue as one mobile device attempts to stream video, another music, while yet another downloads a game and checks email, all in different rooms in the home. Walls, appliances, ceilings and floors combined with high usage demand typically create Wi-Fi dead and slow spots. But, with the REC22A and REC33A, up to 10,000 square feet of additional Wi-Fi coverage can be achieved without sacrificing speed.
The REC22A is a High Power AC1200 Plug-In Wi-Fi Range Extender with eight High Power Amplifiers, one external High Gain Dual Band Antenna, one internal High Gain Dual Band Antenna and one gigabit wired port for connecting devices like televisions or gaming consoles. The REC22A can deliver speeds up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz frequency and up to 867Mbps on the 5.0GHz frequency...
Designed to provide slightly more power and speed for the heaviest of Internet users, the REC33A High Power AC1750 Plug-In Wi-Fi Range Extender. It features twelve High Power Amplifiers, one external High Gain Dual Band Antenna, two internal High Gain Dual Band Antennas and one gigabit wired port. The REC33A delivers speeds up to 450Mbps on 2.4GHZ and up to an impressive 1300Mbps on 5.0GHz.
"The REC22A and REC33A give customers a blazing-fast option to extend their Wi-Fi coverage without adding to the collection of cable television receivers, gaming consoles, routers and other electronic devices that already eat up shelf space in a home," said Lacey Limbrick, Brand/Marketing Manager at Amped Wireless. "These are the first compact, plug-in Wi-Fi range extenders to pack this much Wi-Fi power and speed in such a small package. We are extremely proud to be the first ones to provide AC1750 and AC1200 speeds, coupled with our award winning Wi-Fi range, in a discreet wall outlet design."
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 fine tune their network 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. The Elite Support team is ready for calls, emails, and chats seven days a week.
The REC22A and REC33A will be available to customers early 2015.
