<p>D-LINK LAUNCHES FASTER 802.11G WIRELESS FOLLOWING 802.11B+ SUCCESS</p>
<p>• D-Link delivering up to 8x’s the performance over 802.11b average throughputs.
• D-Link offers the widest scope of 802.11g solutions on the market today
• D-Link and TI first to gain Wi-Fi Certified® status for IEEE 802.11g devices

<p>Sydney &amp; Auckland, October 14 , 2003 — D-Link, today announced that it has launched a new family of 802.11g+ products based on the TI TNETW1130 chipset delivering up to 8x’s the performance over 802.11b average throughputs. The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G+ product line features TI's 802.11g+ technology, which enables high-performance, affordable Wi-Fi devices that are IEEE 802.11g compliant and offer complete interoperability (backward compatibility) and mixed-mode performance with 802.11b products.</p>
<p>"Following the success of our D-Link AirPlus 802.11b+ product line, we are glad to extend our relationship with TI to deliver the D-Link AirPlus G+ 802.11g+ capable products that will help us maintain our Wi-Fi market leadership," said Maurice Famularo, marketing director, D-Link Australia &amp; New Zealand. "Adding the new chipset technology to our high performance G family of products will allow us to offer the widest scope of 802.11g solutions on the market today."</p>
<p>The new D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G+ product family will deliver high-speed throughput allowing consumers faster emailing, Internet downloads and smooth streaming of entertainment applications such as video and audio. Originally targeted for the US, European and Asian markets, D-Link Australia have decided to release this range of high speed wireless in both Australia and New Zealand.</p>
<p>"D-Link and TI have a history of fueling the 802.11b market with the success we achieved with our 802.11b+ line last year. The new 802.11g+ product line will continue that trend by carrying 802.11g to the next level," said Famularo.</p>
<p>The solution draws on both D-Link and TI's history in providing turbo-modes for increased throughput and superior mixed-mode performance with its 802.11b+ products. The D-Link and TI product set was one of the first solutions to gain Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® status for IEEE 802.11g devices.</p>
<p>"By choosing TI's 802.11g+ solution, we are able to deliver high throughput so consumers can get more out of their WLANs," said Domenic Torre, general manager, D-Link Australia &amp; New Zealand. "TI's 802.11g+ solution is optimized to deliver the highest performance and interoperability in any 802.11g or 802.11b network.”
