New 802.11a/b/g Products Available
Summit has announced the general availability of the first dual-band Wi-Fi radios certified for Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) Version 4 on Windows CE. The Summit SDC-CF10AG compact flash radio module and SDC-PC10AG PCMCIA radio module enable business-critical mobile devices to exploit the little-used 5 GHz frequency band.
Excitement over 802.11n, the forthcoming IEEE standard for high-throughput Wi-Fi that operates in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, is renewing interest in Wi-Fi operation at 5 GHz. Deploying 802.11n in a Wi-Fi infrastructure improves range and connection reliability for all clients. By supporting 802.11a (5 GHz) in addition to 802.11b and 802.11g (2.4 GHz), the Summit CF10AG and PC10AG modules enable businesses to exploit the range and reliability benefits of 802.11n and migrate devices to 5 GHz to avoid the growing interference in the 2.4 GHz band.
