Swisscom's new universal connection kit allows customers to enjoy cable-free HD TV in more than one room and easily connect other devices such as PCs and media players to the Internet. The simple, wireless solution was developed by Swisscom in conjunction with Quantenna and Netgear. The WLAN kit will be available from 1 November 2010 for CHF 299 from Swisscom Shops or the Swisscom Online Shop.
The new WLAN solution offers significantly improved coverage and transmission speed thanks to a clever combination of transmission technologies, such as the use of multiple antennas for each device (known as multiple-input multiple-output transmission) and the targeted transmission of signals in the direction of the receiver. This allows problem-free access to even bandwidth-heavy services such as HD TV in several rooms using the new universal connection kit, with no need for cabling throughout the home.
The universal connection kit with three stations will be available from 1 November 2010 for CHF 299 from Swisscom Shops or the Swisscom Online Shop.
