The Ultimate WiFi Base Station Covers 1km Range

I’d imagine ideas like this would be great for cities like San Francisco that are getting city-wide WiFi coverage, because the Etri access point boasts a range of up to 1 kilometer (that’s about 3/5 of a mile). Keep in mind that this is a range, meaning that the radius is 1 kilometer, and — if my high school math is correct — the effective coverage area is the neighbourhood of 3.14 square kilometers, or about 2 square miles.

That said, I’m sure this higher end of their claim (Etri is saying that the access point gives a range of between 100m and 1km) is based on having no interference whatsoever in the form of concrete buildings, mountains, valleys, and so forth. The other wireless product that they revealed earlier today is a router offering speeds of up to 240Mbps (MIMO-OFDM).
