Marine Wi-Fi system ships
QuickerTek has unveiled the QuickerTek Marine System (QMS), a wireless network specifically designed for marine and RV applications. The QMS allows boaters to use the internet at any marina with any number of on-board computers. QMS includes all of the necessary marine-related products, such as mounting hardware and software required to install as well as operate a high-speed wireless network. A universal repeater supplies an RF signal boost for computers on-board, while a wireless connection is established to the marina via 802.22b and/or 802.11g access point or Apple Base Station. QuickerTek's QMS is available for $1,000.
