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.

All ELSA AirLancer Extender products are protected by a two
year warranty and are priced as follows (RRP inc VAT): ELSA AirLancer
Extender 0-30 £199.99, ELSA AirLancer Extender 0-70 £139.99 and ELSA
AirLancer Extender SA £109.99
