Belkin launches Pre-N line
Belkin has announced its new Wireless Pre-N Router and Notebook Network Card products. Powered by Airgo Network's True MIMO technology, Belkin says its Pre-N products improve wireless reliability and performance, and enable users to work with high-bandwidth applications, such as audio and video streaming. This line will begin shipping on 15 October 2004, initially in North America.

The company listed the benefits of this new technology:

  • 4x greater coverage than standard 802.11g
  • 4x greater speed than standard 802.11g
  • Improved resistance to interference from neighboring Wi-Fi(R) systems and other 2.4GHz devices
  • Improved performance with 802.11b and 802.11g devices whether employed at the client, AP, or both.
  • Does not drop to the lowest common networking speed in mixed-mode environments
  • Seamless compatibility with 802.11b and 802.11g

    "Our research shows that, with current wireless technology, people are experiencing poor coverage and performance at farther distances in their homes due to interference from other wireless networks, cordless phones, and other appliances," explains Eric Tong, VP Marketing and Product Development. "Our Pre-N products with True MIMO will empower users by providing a wireless network that makes poor coverage issues a thing of the past."

    Belkin utilizes True MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) from Airgo Networks in its Pre-N products. True MIMO is the first technology to address the issues of coverage, speed, and interference in larger homes and offices.

    True MIMO is a smart-antenna technique that uses multiple antennas to transmit and receive wireless signals. It reaches a step further than other smart-antenna technologies by transmitting multiple signals on each antenna. As a result, Belkin's Pre-N products with True MIMO technology create a robust wireless connection while providing a larger coverage area with the bandwidth and quality of service needed to run advanced applications, such as streaming video or Voice over IP (VoIP).

    True MIMO is one of the underlying technologies being considered for 802.11n, a standard in the works for the next generation of Wi-Fi technology.

    The Belkin Pre-N wireless line includes a wireless ruter (F5D8230-4; MSRP US$179.99) and a Notebook Network Card (F5D8010; MSRP US$129.99).
