Synad Technologies has been demonstrating to customers its Mercury5G dual mode chipset for 802.11a, b and g wireless standards. Mercury5G is based on Synad's AgileRFTM technology, devised by Synad to deliver interoperability between the three 802.11 standards without compromising data throughput, range or performance.
The AgileRF technology enables dynamic monitoring and switching between 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g, without loss of connectivity to the user, to whichever Access Point provides the optimum service.
Using a Mercury5G mini-PCI card in a Windows based laptop PC environment the demonstration showed interoperability between the 5GHz 802.11a and 2.4GHz 802.11b and 802.11g standards with data transfer across both bands including high quality video streaming. Operation also included third party access points
