KarlNet Joins Apple and Lucent in Providing the Apple Airport

Columbus, OH - December 31, 1999

When Lucent and Apple innovate to bring wireless networking to the mass market, they turn to KarlNet Incorporated.

In the creation of Apple's flagship wireless network product, the Airport Base Station, it was crucial to provide a low-cost, feature-rich, 11 Mbps IEEE 802.11-compliant Access Point that was useful both to networking professionals and home users. Since the Airport Base Station was designed especially for home and education users, special attention was paid to provide an easy-to-use solution that provided the innovative new features that home and educational users need. In order to achieve their goals, Apple and Lucent joined with KarlNet to extend the KarlBridge wireless base station software with additional features, such as PPP Dial-on-Demand and a Network Address Translator for connecting multiple users through a single Internet connection. Through their partnership with Lucent and Apple, KarlNet has created a truly plug-and-play wireless Internet connection device!
