NEW YORK -- Extricom, a designer and manufacturer of high-performancewireless LAN infrastructure solutions for the enterprise, today unveiled TrueReuseTM, a breakthroughtechnology that sets a new standard for Wi-Fi (802.11) capacity.

At DEMO 2006, Extricom formally introduced TrueReuse via a live demonstration that achieved a threefoldincrease in channel capacity on a system deployed entirely within the confines of the conferenceballroom. This level of channel reuse and corresponding capacity increase, in such a constrained space,is unparalleled by other competitive offerings.

“Capacity is rapidly replacing coverage as the key element in the design and deployment of enterpriseclasswireless LANs,” said Craig J. Mathias, a Principal with the wireless and mobile advisory firmFarpoint Group (Ashland, MA). “The ability to dynamically manage radio bandwidth to maximizethroughput for multiple classes of traffic will become a core requirement for all enterprise installationsgoing forward.”

The release of TrueReuse for the Extricom Wireless LAN System brings together two complementary andpowerful ideas: the Interference-FreeTM channel blanket topology, for achieving robust coverage andseamless mobility with radically simple deployment, and real-time frequency reuse inside the channelblanket, for a multiplication of total capacity system-wide. With TrueReuse enabled, the system is able todecide when to permit multiple access points to transmit to multiple clients, simultaneously on the samechannel, without causing co-channel interference, even in a dense access point deployment.

“TrueReuse is the path to the long talked-about Gigabit wireless LAN,” said Gideon Rottem, CEO and Co-Founder of Extricom. “Combined with our architecture’s robust coverage, seamless mobility, and ease ofdeployment and maintenance, the Extricom WLAN System delivers the large-scale, multi-service flexibilitythat enterprises are seeking.”
