Apple Deal: Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station on Sale at B&H

The Sixth Generation AirPort Extreme Base Station From Apple Features Simultaneous Dual-Band 802.11ac Wi-Fi Support

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 02, 2016) - B&H is pleased to share the great price on the Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station featuring simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi support. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band the wireless devices use, they'll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.

With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the AirPort Extreme Base Station can reach data rates of up to 1.3Gbps, which is triple the 802.11n standard. 802.11ac Wi-Fi also provides double the channel bandwidth with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for data to flow faster. When using a 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi device, AirPort Extreme can still optimize the connection for those Wi-Fi standards as well.

Apple has redesigned the AirPort Extreme to be taller with antennas located at the top of the device. Apple also increased the number of antennas to six, three for 2.4GHz and three for 5GHz. The vertical redesign of the AirPort Extreme also contributes to a smaller footprint and more desk space.

With AirPort Extreme, getting Wi-Fi network up and running is quick and easy. That's because a setup assistant is built into iOS and into AirPort Utility for OS X. There are no complicated steps to follow and no obscure terminology to learn. The setup assistant does all the work,

Up to Three Times Faster Wi-Fi

With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the AirPort Extreme Base Station takes Wi-Fi speeds up to 1.3 Gbps, which is triple the previous 802.11n standard. This means up to three times faster Wi-Fi. Additionally get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. And if one has 802.11a/b/g/n devices, AirPort Extreme maximizes those connections as well.

AirPort Extreme features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band the wireless devices use, they'll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance

With 802.11ac technology comes the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. Most base station antennas emit an equal and constant Wi-Fi signal in all directions. But the beamforming antenna array knows where an 802.11ac device is on the network. Then AirPort Extreme targets its signal to that device. So your Wi-Fi signal is stronger, clearer and faster.
