Building on the magnificent success of the 2.4GHz WiFi Patriot Solwise are pleased to bring you the Patriot-DB, a Dual Band version offering 2.4GHz and 5GHz AC frequencies.
The Solwise Patriot Dual Band can be used as a general-purpose outdoor access point and includes a range of additional modes enabling it to function as a high performance WiFi client device. These capabilities allow the Patriot-DB to receive weak WiFi signals in caravan/lodge parks, campsites, marinas, and similar spaces where public wireless services are made available.
When the campsite offers WiFi but your ‘van is right at the other end of the site you may need something to help you get a better signal, the Solwise Patriot range are perfect for this. The antenna will receive the campsite WiFi signal and the supplied cable threads through into the ‘van which you plug straight into your laptop.
Many campers are not bothering to take laptops on holiday any more preferring the simplicity of an iPad/tablet or just using their smart-phones to keep in touch with social networking or to find local attractions. These ‘smart’ devices rarely have the right connectors so the beauty of the Patriot is you can connect it up to an internal Access Point which then creates a mini hotspot in your ‘van allowing you to connect your iPad/tablet, Smart-phone, notebook, laptop or hand held games console to the campsite WiFi.
The Patriot-DB has the capability to relay WiFi by simultaneously receiving a signal on the 2.4GHz band and broadcasting on the 5GHz band, or even vice-versa, effectively boosting the connectivity and speed on hand held client devices like smart-phones and tablets from otherwise weak WiFi networks. We would, however, advise caution using the repeater functions in public spaces due to interference and bandwidth restriction issues. Where the outer walls of a lodge, vehicle, or vessel may prove restrictive for wireless signals, the Patriot-DB could be mounted to the exterior to establish a connection to the site’s WiFi network and connected to a suitable indoor access point/router to provide a private service within your boat/van/lodge.
