AIRcable Host XR™
The only long-range (10 km-class) Bluetooth® USB "Dongle"
Standard USB connector
Works with Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
1 km external antenna included
Extended range for up to 30 km
No external power needed
Aluminum case for reduced interference and increased sensitivity
Extends the range of your existing bluetooth devices!
Built on AIRcable's Bluetusk™ long-range technology
The AIRcable Host XR, equipped with an extremely-powerful, highly-sensitive Bluetooth transmitter, can achieve an unparalleled range of up to 30 km! With a 9 dBi omni-directional antenna, the extended range is up to 2 km, and with the 18 dBi directional antenna, it is up to 10 km. Additionally, given its high sensitivity, it can extend the range of weaker Bluetooth devices like cell phones and headsets by hundreds of meters. With most other devices only capable of obtaining a range of 10 meters or less, no other Bluetooth device comes even close. Plus, this long-range Bluetooth transmitter connects to any computer with a Bluetooth connection and can handle virtually any Bluetooth profile available. Uses include standard data, streaming data, headsets communication (like Skype calls), and stereo headphone communication, amongst others.
With the AIRcable Host XR you can extend the range of communication from your PC to other Bluetooth devices.
The AIRcable Host XR's Bluetooth radio receiver is many times more sensitive than the average Bluetooth device. You can expect about a 10 times more range than with other standard Bluetooth dongles.
