JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR) ("ParkerVision"), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced today that it will begin taking orders for Milo, its new distributed Wi-Fi system for consumers, by the middle of August. Milo delivers the combination the company believes consumers are looking for in affordability without compromising performance. Milo will initially be available for purchase at Amazon.com, as well as the Milo online store at milowifi.com.
Designed for scalability, Milo systems provide "whole home" Wi-Fi coverage for small and large residences alike, eliminating dead-zones and slow data rate areas while adding coverage in difficult to reach locations. In field tests, users, including those with state-of-the-art Wi-Fi routers, benefited by Milo's unique capability for adding new wireless coverage areas while not duplicating existing coverage that was already working well.
ParkerVision CEO Jeffrey Parker stated, "We are excited for the launch of the Milo Wi-Fi product line. Milo has been designed for broad appeal to home and small office users who want reliable Wi-Fi everywhere without the investment of hundreds of dollars. Today's consumers continue to add Wi-Fi enabled devices such as phones, tablets, cameras,
thermostats, doorbells, lights, power sockets, televisions, and more. Reliable distributed Wi-Fi is essential to enjoying the benefits of the internet-connected home and is at the core of one of today's greatest new markets; the internet of things and smart homes."
Mr. Parker continued, "Current consumer Wi-Fi solutions for spotty coverage include either poorly made and ineffective extenders and repeaters or expensive mesh networking devices. Milo is an affordable solution that is perfect for small and large homes alike. With Milo's cloud-based self-optimization and a US-based team of customer service representatives, our commitment is to ensure every Milo user can achieve the benefit of Wi-Fi everywhere."
