Rokland Launches RokAir Wireless USB Adapter as Alternative to Apple Airport
Rokland LLC (http://www.rokland.com) has announced the launch of RokAir, a new wireless USB adapter that is compatible with Apple Macintosh laptops and desktops and serves as an Airport alternative. All you need is an available USB port and Mac OS version 10.3 or 10.4 to use this adapter. It also works with Windows Vista and Linux releases.
"We've been in the wireless networking market for over six years," said Rokland spokesman Jason Opdyke. "We've carried various products and brands going back to the days of frequency hopping and RF wireless technology. This is one adapter to which we are very comfortable attaching our own brand name."
The RokAir is a pen-style USB device which also works with Linux operating systems in addition to the usual Windows suspects like 98SE through XP, as well as Windows Vista and the Mac operating systems noted above. "We have listened to our customers and they have told us what they want is a device compatible with a wide array of operating systems like Mac OS and Linux, but that is also portable and yet of very high power," continued Opdyke. "This device operates at 100mW of output power which is more than three times that of the original Airport line, and twice that of Cisco b/g wireless cards. And yet with the built-in heatsink, users can run the device for a long period of time."
The RokAir is poised to be one of very few Mac-compatible wireless adapters available to consumers this holiday shopping season. "If you know any one with a Mac computer, this would be a great gift for them," commented Opdyke. "You can even link up wirelessly with an Apple TV."
The RokAir wireless USB adapter from Rokland is available online at http://www.rokland.com with a special holiday street price of $27.99 plus shipping. A product spec sheet is available at http://www.rokland.com/rokair.pdf
