Sonnet Technologies, a leader in upgrades and useful accessories for Apple, Mac desktop and notebook computers, announces the introduction of the Aria Extreme-n 802.11n wireless mini-PCIe card. This small form-factor card, measuring 2" x 1-1/8", delivers draft 802.11n wireless network connectivity to Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac (Intel), Mac mini (Intel), and Windows notebook computers with an available mini-PCIe slot. Sonnet delivers added value by including the specialized tools and detailed installation instructions that enable do-it-yourself installation for Mac mini, Mac Pro, MacBook, and MacBook Pro users.
Aria Extreme-n adds 802.11n wireless connectivity to compatible Macs without a wireless card, and upgrades systems originally sold with an 802.11g AirPort Extreme card; Aria Extreme-n mounts into the AirPort card slot and connects to the computer built-in antenna(s). Aria Extreme-n uses Mac OS X's AirPort drivers and configuration tools, configuration is completed in a few simple steps. Aria Extreme-n is backward compatible with 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g routers and other equipment.
802.11n networks can deliver up to five times the speed and twice the range of 802.11g networks, the previous wireless networking standard. Sonnet'ss Aria Extreme-n can connect up to three antennas, depending on computer configuration, to maximize its performance with 802.11n routers that also feature multiple radios and antennas. 802.11n devices utilize MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) technology that enables multiple concurrent data stream transmission, and provides enough bandwidth to allow simultaneous high-speed Internet access, HD video streaming, large file transferring, VoIP telephony, and more. Aria Extreme-n supports AES, TKIP, WEP, and WPA2 encryption for secure network configuration, so you can work wirelessly with confidence.
