Share

We’ve see a fair few interesting goodies from Buffalo in the past but mostly to do with memory solutions. Buffalo has already had a presence in the wireless networking market and will be continuing that with its first draft-n standard router and accessories. Draft-n refers to the new 802.11n standard of wireless networking which enables data rates up to a whopping 300Mbps and with greater range thanks to MIMO functionality.

Buffalo has reported that it will be releasing these new networking devices in the UK in June and the line up with consist of the AirStation Nfiniti Wireless Router/Access Point, PCI Adapter and CardBus Adapter for laptops.

Draft-n standard is pretty exciting for us because the greater transfer rates mean that wireless transmission of high definition signals – perhaps from IPTV – would be made much more possible. The companies we’ve asked about this all seem to be pretty certain that the new standard is paving the way for a lot more wireless transmission of entertainment media about the home and High Definition is sure to play a part in that someday.

The AirStation Nfiniti Wireless Router, Wireless CardBus Adapter and Wireless PCI Adapter will be available from June for aroung £110 for the router, £85 for the CardBus adapter and £85 for the PCI adaptor plus VAT.
