QuickerTek has upgraded the 802.11 ac Apple Airport Base Station Extreme by adding six high gain external antennas to the unit. This antenna upgrade provides dual-band 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz WiFi and also triples the WiFi strength of any version of the new Apple ac Base Station Extreme and/or Time Capsule.
The improvement in wireless power is accomplished by optimizing antenna location, according to the folks at QuickerTek. QuickerTek can either supply a new Apple unit, or the customer may send in their own Apple unit.
Three different upgrades are available: Airport Base Station Extreme AC, 2TB Time Capsule and the 3TB Time Capsule. Prices range from US$398 to $598. Customers can also send in their own unit to be modified at a price of $199. Go to http://ww.quickertek.com .
