The Wireless over Copper Solution

Posted: 15th Feb, 2006 By: MarkJ
The Netherlands based computer peripherals developer, Tornado, has launched the Tornado 251 WirePlusTM. Uniquely this device can extend the wireless signal of an 802.11 wireless access point by using regular copper (phone) wires:

The Tornado 251 WirePlusTM is a wireless extender for existing wireless users that is plugged into telephone outlets. The Tornado 251 WirePlusTM converts the wireless signal and passes it, through the existing copper phone wires, from an outlet near the access point to one or more remote outlets. The signal uses a frequency range different than ADSL and voice and therefore does not affect the quality of other services on the same line.

This new way of extending wireless connections reduces the transmission distance and guarantees the maximum bandwidth (higher speed) available from your 802.11 access point to the area in the building where it is needed.

Unlike wireless signals, Tornado 251 WirePlusTM performance is not impaired by interference from other wireless applications such as cordless phones and endures no loss in transmission because of concrete walls, floors or metal objects. Dead spots and low quality reception issues are gone forever. The Tornado 251 WirePlusTM delivers full wireless coverage in each corner of a building. More information about the Tornado 251 WirePlusTM can soon be found on http://www.TORNADO.nl .


It's a clever idea, although there is a slight irony to improving the performance/coverage of a wireless network by using wires.
