Amped Wireless Extends Touch Screen
Wi-Fi Line with AC Extender Solution
Boost the range of any Wi-Fi network, with a few taps of your finger, on the TAP-EX2
December 30th, 2014 - Chino Hills, CA – Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless solutions for the home and office, today announced the next model in its TAP Series of Touch Screen Wi-Fi devices, the TAP-EX2. The TAP-EX2 is a High Power Touch Screen AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender and was recently chosen as a 2015 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. Designed to boost any existing Wi-Fi network, the TAP-EX2 eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots and provides ultra-fast 802.11ac connections.
This Range Extender is sleek and compact, but it is a true powerhouse with the industry’s most simple setup. It boosts the signal of a Wi-Fi router by repeating and amplifying the signal, extending Wi-Fi coverage to areas like upstairs rooms, out to the yard, or to the far office. Standard Wi-Fi devices utilize only 50mW of output power. While the TAP-EX2 delivers up to 800mW of Wi-Fi output power, all in an attractive table-top design. More output power means more Wi-Fi range, it allows a signal to push through walls and eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots for good. With 6 total amplifiers and high gain antennas (one dual band external, one internal), the TAP-EX2 provides up to 10,000 square feet of extended coverage.
“With more and more devices continually entering the home environment, a powerful Wi-Fi network is essential,” stated Lacey Limbrick, Brand/Marketing Manager at Amped Wireless. “With our latest innovation, the TAP-EX2, we now have an AC solution with a user interface designed for anyone to use. Just a few taps on the touch screen and you're up and running in minutes. It was designed to simplify the Wi-Fi setup process and to solve a common problem and that’s exactly what it does. It’s the next development in our TAP Series and we’re very excited to share the news today.”
The setup of the TAP-EX2 is done entirely on the touch screen display. After powering on the Extender, the user taps to scan for the Wi-Fi network they would like to extend, then selects that network from the list and setup is complete. The touch screen also allows the user to control many features of the Range Extender including the setup and management of Guest Networks, the Wi-Fi Access Schedule, User Access Controls, the strength of the Wi-Fi signal in Signal Coverage Controls and many other settings.
“Being named a 2015 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree is another great milestone/achievement for our team,” said Jason Owen, CEO of Amped Wireless. “By creating a product that harnesses our award winning, high power technology and an intuitive touch screen setup, we are able to provide homes with a strong Wi-Fi network that they are comfortable interacting with. We are very excited about this award and look forward to launching many more innovations at CES 2015.”
On January 5th, Amped Wireless will be talking to press and showcasing their latest innovations at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! at the Mirage Events Center in Las Vegas from 7pm-10:30pm. From January 6th-9th at CES 2015, Amped Wireless will also be displaying the TAP-EX2 along with other long range Wi-Fi products at its booth, located in South Hall 4, Booth #36533 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
