SMC Networks has announced that its entire 802.11g product range is fully compliant with the IEEE standard that was ratified last month. Existing users of the vendor’s 802.11g draft compliant products can also update their solutions with downloads from SMC Networks’ web site.

“Having been among the first companies to introduce 802.11g products under the draft standard, we’re pleased that the IEEE has approved this standard, which will bring a higher performance to the 2.4 GHz space,” says Jamshed Mehdi, managing director, SMC Networks Middle East.

“We’re also pleased to assure our early adopter users that their 802.11g technology is fully compliant with the newly approved standard,” he adds.

SMC Networks has been shipping the draft compliant 802.11g products since the start of the year, but has recently updated the range with Prism Nitro technology, which is designed to improve wireless range and performance. As a result, the vendor now claims that its products can offer up to 50% more throughput in g-only networks and up to 300% greater throughput in mixed mode environment, for example 802.11b and g networks.

The 802.11g products, which include the Barricade G wireless cable/DSL broadband router and EZ Connect G wireless CardBus Adapater and wireless PCI card, are also backward compatible with 802.11b products. Furthermore, the vendor also combines the 802.11g and a standards in the EZ Connect Universal Wireless CardBus Adapter.
