U.S. Robotics is upgrading its wireless products and promising users connectivity at data transfer speeds up to four times faster than other 802.11b standard equipment. While 44 M/bits/s speeds will be standard for new users, existing customers with 22 M/bits/s wireless products will be able to freely download firmware and driver upgrades from the company’s web site (www.usr.com.me).

According to U.S. Robotics, enterprises will benefit from these enhancements as network users will be able to transfer data and information more quickly and effectively. Additionally, the solutions, which utilise Texas Instruments 802.11b silicon chip technology, will be compatible with standard 802.11b Wi-Fi devices and planned 802.11g products.

“The performance enhancement comes at a time when wireless users are increasingly using their networks to share and transfer extremely large multimedia files, such as MP3, video and digital photography,” says Yusuf Syed, regional sales manager, Middle East, U.S. Robotics.

“This new feature will double our current throughput compared to our line of 22 M/bits/s solutions, which already offer twice the speed of standard 802.11b products,” he continues.

U.S. Robotics will provide updates or upgrades for a range of its 22 M/bits/s wireless products including its Wireless/Cable DSL router, Wireless Access points, Wireless PC cards and PCI adapters.

U.S. Robotics also says that its products will remain user friendly and simple to deploy, as well as providing users to securely share internet access, files and printers.
