|D-Link To Launch 802.11g+ Products Based On TI
D-Link Systems, Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc. announced that D-Link
will launch a new family of 802.11g+ products based on the TI TNETW1130
chipset that delivers up to an 8x improvement over 802.11b average
throughputs. The D-Link AirPlus XtremeG+ product line features TI's
802.11g+ technology, which enables high-performance, affordable Wi-Fi
devices that are IEEE 802.11g compliant and offer complete
interoperability and mixed-mode performance with 802.11b products.
The new D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G+ product family will deliver high-speed
throughput allowing consumers faster e-mailing, Internet downloads and
smooth streaming of entertainment applications such as video and audio.
TI's TNETW1130 802.11g solution draws on TI's history in providing
turbo-modes for increased throughput and superior mixed-mode performance
with its 802.11b+ products. The TNETW1130 was one of the first solutions
to gain Wi-Fi CERTIFIED status for IEEE 802.11g devices.
"Following the success of our D-Link AirPlus 802.11b+ product
line, we are glad to extend our relationship with TI to deliver the D-Link
AirPlus G+ 802.11g+ capable products that will help us maintain our Wi-Fi
market leadership," said Steven Joe, president of D-Link.
"Adding the TI TNETW1130 "G+" technology to our high
performance G family of products will allow us to offer the widest scope
of 802.11g solutions on the market today."
"D-Link and TI have a history of fueling the 802.11b market with
the success they achieved with D-Link's 802.11b+ line last year. The new
D-Link 802.11g+ product line will continue that trend by carrying 802.11g
to the next level," said Allen Nogee, principal analyst from
"By choosing TI's 802.11g+ solution, D-Link is able to deliver
high throughput so consumers can get more out of their WLANs," said
Marc Cetto, general manager of TI's Wireless Networking Business Unit.
"TI's 802.11g+ solution is optimized to deliver the highest
performance and interoperability in any 802.11g or 802.11b network. We are
pleased to add D-Link to the growing list of worldwide customers that have
adopted the TNETW1130 for their 802.11g products."
