Buffalo adds compact travel router to AirStation product range

New portable router offers users added mobility with on-the-go network access

London, United Kingdom, 17 July 2013: Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage and networking solutions, today launches a travel router that provides users with on-the-go high speed wireless internet connections.

The new portable AirStation Wireless N300 Travel Router quickly and simply transforms any wired device into a Personal Hotspot, giving users added mobility and convenience with the latest addition to Buffalo’s AirStation range.

Buffalo’s new wireless networking offering provides speeds of up to 300Mbps from any cable connection, and includes an integrated USB power cable and a break-resistant LAN, making it ideal for use with laptops and smartphones.

In addition to travel use, the AirStation Wireless Router also has a guest port feature, which enables users to share the router’s wireless network with others, without disclosing the password. Users can connect multiple devices without risking personal security, by isolating the connection to devices with WEP and a limited UI change.

Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology, said: “The new AirStation Travel Router provides users with high-performing, uncompromised networking capabilities while on-the-go. The compact device provides excellent coverage for highly mobile users, enabling flexible placement options and a consistently high device performance. It offers multiple user options and the integrated cable means there’s no need to worry about having to carry bulky cables around with you.”

The device is the latest addition to the AirStation portfolio, headed up by Buffalo’s world-first 802.11ac router and media bridge, which launched in July last year. The wireless family also includes Buffalo’s AirStation™ Pro Selectable Dual Band PoE Wireless Access Point, AirStation™ Wireless AC866 Dual Band USB Adapter and AirStation™ Nfiniti™ Wireless-N Dual Band Ethernet Converter, Access Point and Bridge, all of which enhance both home and office internet connections and network speeds.
