SMC Networks has announced that the first in its line of wireless networking products that comply with the 802.11n draft v1.0 specification for wireless networking are shipping and available.

Designed to excel in demanding applications like gaming, high-definition video streaming, file sharing and VoIP, these draft 802.11n products are capable of achieving data transfer rates of up to 300Mbps—25-times the rate of standard 802.11b devices and 5-times the rate of 802.11g.

The SMC Barricade N Wireless 4-port Broadband Router (SMCWBR14-N) is an all-in-one networking solution for connecting wired or 802.11b, g, or n wireless devices to share cable or DSL connections. This platform-independent, multi-function router combines a 4-port 10/100Mbps LAN switch with Automatic MDI-MDIX and a wireless access point (AP) that supports speeds up to 300Mbps. Features of this high-performance 802.11n-draft router go beyond speed, though: it is secured by a NAT firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), incorporates Intelligent stream handling technology and comes with a user-friendly Web-based management interface for ease-of-use.

The device's built-in wireless AP maximises performance and compatibility with next generation IEEE802.11n draft v1.0 specification compliance—incorporating advanced Multiple-In, Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology to deliver incredible speed & range—while maintaining full backward-compatibility with the IEEE802.11b/g standards. Its advanced technology provides enough bandwidth to stream HD video, listen to digital music, play online games, transfer large files, make VoIP calls and surf the Internet—simultaneously. Incorporating Wi-Fi Multimedia technology for quality-of-service via prioritisation and optimisation of applications, and the latest WPA/WPA2 as well as WEP 64-bit and 128-bit wireless encryption for secure connection of both new and legacy devices, the SMC Barricade N Wireless 4-port Broadband Router truly embodies the concept of making available the newest technologies, while accommodating the reality of evolving networks that include both new and older technology.

The EZ Connect N Wireless PCI Adapter (SMCWPCI-N) and EZ Connect N Wireless Cardbus Adapter (SMCWCB-N) make pure draft N connections possible for the ultimate in performance. Connected to a network anchored by an SMC Barricade N Wireless 4-port Broadband Router (SMCWBR14-N) they make 802.11n-draft's truly blazing throughput a reality, providing instant, seamless high-speed network connectivity. The EZ Connect N Wireless PCI adapter (SMCWPCI-N) and EZ Connect N Wireless Cardbus adapter (SMCWCB-N) bring wireless connectivity to desktop and notebook computers to bring fast connections (up to 300Mbps) and great coverage with the same enterprise-class security provided by SMC's 802.11n-draft wireless networking family.

Tested and tuned to truly deliver on the speed and throughput promise of the upcoming 802.11n standard SMC's first 802.11n draft products: the SMC Barricade N Wireless 4-port Broadband Router, the EZ Connect N Wireless PCI Adapter (SMCWPCI-N) and the EZ Connect N Wireless Cardbus Adapter (SMCWCB-N) are available now from SMC Networks' resellers and integrators. Priced at Rs.5,437.95 ($119.99), Rs.4,078.35 ($89.99) and Rs.3,625.15 ($79.99), and fully backward-compatible, the SMC 802.11n draft wireless networking products put the performance of 'n' within reach—and keep 802.11b and g clients in the loop.
