ELSA extends the range of its wireless LANs Wednesday 29 August 2001 PDF Print THEALE, 29 August 2001 - Networking and computer graphics vendor ELSA has brought out two new external antennae that will extend the range of its 11Mbs wireless LANs (WLANs) for LAN bridging and to cover wide areas beyond the range of standard wireless LAN equipment. ELSA has also developed a lightning protector for all its external antennae. The ELSA AirLancer Extender 0-30, with an operating range of up to 1Km, is designed to create wireless LAN bridges. With a narrow signal spread of just 30* and a high gain of 14dBi, the ELSA AirLancer Extender 0-30 can deliver up to 11Mbs throughput across a campus, a business park or a public highway. For large indoor or external areas such as exhibition halls or a shopping mall, the ELSA AirLancer Extender 0-70 delivers a 70* signal spread with a range of up to 400m, point to point or 600m in a point to multi-point configuration. Both ELSA AirLancer Extender antennae can be wall or mast-mounted and are supplied with relevant fittings and coax cable to connect to the ELSA LANCOM L-11, IL-11 WLAN access points, ELSA AirLancer MC-11 and PCI-11 network cards. Both ELSA AirLancer Extenders comply with IEEE 802.11b For all outdoor applications of WLAN antennae, ELSA also recommends the lightning protector or surge arrester; the ELSA AirLancer Extender SA. Fitted between the antenna and the coax cable with proper earth connection, the ELSA AirLancer Extender SA protects sensitive LAN hardware from high voltage surges with minimal signal loss.
