- Tri-Band Antenna for AirPort Extreme Base Station (802.11 n) / Self Installation Kit
How can the AirPort Extreme 802.11 n Base Station be improved?
The new Base Station is quite powerful by embracing the Draft-N 2.0 specification, however there is plenty of room for improvement. The MIMO (Multi-Input Multi-Output) antennas are all quite modest in receptive sensitivity and transmission capability. More sensitive external antennas can remedy this. This is exactly what we are offering.
Additional Flexibility Outside
Having an external setup offers the flexibility of using coaxial cable to put your antennas where the reception/transmission is best. This means you can put your antenna array up very high, maximizing its potential.
Performance and Contents
Our kit offers the upgraded antenna array and a 4 foot coaxial cable to wring more performance out of that new Base Station. This is fully compatible with the other 802.11 standards of A, B, and G. The range increase is up to 50% greater coverage than a standard n Base Station. The speed will climb much closer to the theoretical yield of 300 megabits per second.
