By Ashok Bindra February 02, 2012

Long-range wireless communications solutions provider Amped Wireless has released a high-power wireless Gigabit router capable of delivering up to 10,000 sq. ft. of wireless coverage for large homes, backyards, and offices using iPads, tablets, smartphones and laptops. To offer this kind of coverage, Amped Wireless’ high-power Wireless-N Gigabit router R10000G uses a high-speed 620 MHz processor and premium dual high-power Wi-Fi amplifiers, as well as dual high-gain 5 dBi antennas.

For connecting additional wired network devices, the R10000G features Gigabit wired ports and includes smart features, such as, guest networks, adjustable Wi-Fi coverage controls, parental controls, website blocking and support for the latest Wi-Fi security, including one touch Wi-Fi protected set-up.

Other key features of the Gigabit router include 5x Gigabit networking ports, smart security features and SPI firewall, and adjustable Wi-Fi coverage. In addition, it provides up to 4 Wi-Fi networks for guests, and prioritizes bandwidth with QoS.

To boost wireless performance, the Gigabit router uses advanced Wi-Fi amplifiers with output power capability of 600 mW. The dual high-gain 5 dBi antennas maximize range and performance. Typically, according to Amped Wireless, Wi-Fi devices do not utilize wireless amplifiers and are equipped with antennas that have zero antenna gain.

The manufacturer said that the company is also offering Elite Support, which is a technical support and customer service program, to all customers free for one year, from the date of purchase of an Amped Wireless product.

“Our primary goal is always to provide our customers with the best products and service possible. With the economy still on the road to recovery and call center jobs being outsourced from the U.S. to other countries, we felt that by keeping jobs in-house, in the U.S., we would be able to keep customer service levels high, while at the same time assist the U.S. economy. It’s a win, win scenario for us. In addition to Elite Support, we have also introduced the Range Increase Guarantee program to the guarantee the performance of our products before a customer purchases it,” said CEO Jason Owen.

According to Amped Wireless, R10000G carries a retail price of $149.99 and is available from major retailers and resellers in the country.
