Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

BT has unveiled a wireless ADSL broadband modem that allows up to ten people to share a single broadband connection.

Designed for the home market, the BT Voyager 2000 has a range of up to 50m indoors and 250m outdoors and costs £359.97 (inc VAT).

The ADSL modem with a built-in base station enables multiple connections (up to 10 PCs) to one ADSL broadband subscription. It can also be used to network all home computers and laptops (up to 10 PCs) sharing a printer.

It's estimated that one in four UK households already owns two or more PCs, and this figure is set to increase. More information on the Voyager 2000 can be found here.

The launch of this new product is likely to be of interest to Matthew Bross, who today was appointed as chief technology officer (CTO) of BT. He joins the monster telco from US broadband networks service provider, Williams Communications, where he was senior VP and general manager of emerging markets.

Bross, 42, replaces Chris Earnshaw as CTO following his retirement in September.

Last week, BTopenworld chief exec Alison Ritchie was named as BT's broadband supremo responsible for driving BT Group's whole broadband strategy.

As BT's first chief broadband officer, Ms Ritchie will direct the company's policy on broadband across the whole of BT Group (including BT Wholesale, BT Retail and BTopenworld) in a bid to develop a "co-ordinated approach" to the dominant telco's delivery of high speed Internet services. ®
