We have been working with LitePoint for over six years and know we can count on their technology to ensure we ship the highest quality products with the shortest test development cycle.”
TP-Link is moving to the IQxel from the LitePoint IQflex® for networking products supporting multiple WiFi standards including 802.11a/b/g/n/ac.
