New York-based Wi3 Solutions is hoping to revolutionize the way people get their Internet connections, and it's already being recognized with some of the tech industry's biggest awards.
Wi3 WiPNET is an upgradable cartridge that goes over existing cable TV connections to create a user installable Ethernet network. Sure, it sounds a lot like your standard router, but developer Wi3 Solutions claims their product combines the best of the Ethernet and cable modem worlds, so you don't lose speed if you're sharing the coax cable with your TV, and you can share your connection with a greater number of devices without much interference. What's more is that Wi3 WiPNET doesn't disrupt Internet or WiFi services you already have installed.
In today's world where most of the electronics individuals are WiFi compatible, interference can be a huge issue in homes where everybody has a personal device. But the beauty is that this installable Ethernet network is easy to upgrade and can evolve with new tech innovations without having to rewire your existing setup.
Wi3 Solutions announced that Wi3 WiPNET will launch in early 2012.
