Super Wi-Fi – Really! – Long way off still!

Well since the FCC approved the standard back in September of last year we have not heard much about this.  Well I think we are still a long way away from seeing this in the main stream.  It is going to be very expensive, there might be a few verticals that will be the first to start using.

Most companies and organization have or are upgrading to N Access Points today, I don’t see them doing it again so soon.

This new wireless networking standard promises speeds up to 22Mbps to devices as far as 100-kilometers (roughly 62-miles) away from the nearest transmitter. This new band of Wi-Fi on steroids comes through the patch of “white space” frequencies that were previously used to analog television broadcasts.

Wireless Access Point & Cloud Management in the NEWS

Yesterday was a great day for Amer and PowerCloud Systems.

A press release sent,  plus an Article written about our Access Points & Cloud Management and details of the solution provided for a School District in Alabama.   One of our first install of 100 access points is up and running and has gone very well – the customer is extremely happy with how easy the install went and the performance of the access points.

Wayne Caudle, Boaz City School District IT director: “We prepare students for success in the 21st century and that requires a digital-classroom environment with great Wi-Fi connectivity as its foundation. Our high school students bring laptops to class and many use smartphones and even tablets on campus. Robust connectivity is a must-have, and Amer Network delivers a Wi-Fi solution that can manage this increasing demand.” “Amer’s cloud-based solution exceeded our operational requirements from Day One. Students and staff effortlessly connected across campuses and between buildings. Teachers can immediately start expanding their lesson plans to make technology a more integral part to their classroom instruction. Features such as enhanced security and network monitoring enable us to provide an online environment that is safe, controlled and powerful.”
