We've moved!

As of May 1st, 2017, Aigean has a new home!

At some point in the middle of last year it became very apparent that the space we were in was not going to sustain any more substantial growth. With a cramped laboratory, no dedicated shipping area, and little-to-no storage room, we clearly needed a new HQ. We have since settled in a nice space a little more than twice the size minutes away in Downtown Oakland Park.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of those who have helped us grow over the past two years and we're excited to continue to grow with all of you.

Dealers, please note the change of address in your system(s). All shipments, mail, pick-ups, etc. should be sent to the new address effective immediately.

3496 NE 12th Terrace
Oakland Park, FL 33334

 

Happy Holidays!

We want to take just a quick moment to extend to each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday wishes. We are absolutely blessed to be able to have the opportunity to meet, connect, and interact with so many of you from around the world. The past year has been incredible and we are very excited to see what 2017 brings for us, our dealers, and their customers.

To all of you around the world, may the joy of the season fill your hearts and homes all year long and thank you from all of us to all of you.

Holiday Hours
Our office will be closed December 26 through December 30th.  Technical support, however, is on call during this time. Any phone calls and emails will be responded to promptly.

A Two-Year Warranty Period is Now Standard

In addition to our AN-7000 introductory announcement earlier today, we have another that warrants its own post. We would like to announce, effective immediately, that all of our products, aside from the LINK, now come standard with a two-year warranty. This also applies retroactively to all existing matching devices.

We have been so pleased with the performance and reliability of our products over the past several months, that we want to offer our customers the best possible guaranteed service and warranty their products to the best of our abilities. We feel that a two-year period reflects not only the durability of our products, but demonstrates our commitment to a reliable experience and can confidently ensure many years of service.

We have updated our Warranty Information to reflect the changes.

As always, our goal is to exceed your expectations now and forever. We hope that this change is one more reason why Aigean stands above the rest.

 

 

Introducing the AN-7000!

The marine industry's first
High Power, Dual-Band Wi-Fi Client

 
 

We have been extremely busy over the past couple of months iterating hardware, developing software, and field testing the industry's first high power, dual-band Wi-Fi client. Finally, we are able to share our excitement and announce the launch and availability of the AN-7000!

The AN-7000 is the be-all end-all solution for outfitting or upgrading any vessel's wireless system. Before today, the only way to connect to 5 GHz networks was through the use of our LINK5, which required manual swapping hardware or a broadband router to switch between 2.4 and 5 GHz networks. Not only have we bridged the gap and developed a unified, dual-band system, but each radio features a full watt of output power, making it the ultimate high power Wi-Fi client. This is truly the first of its kind developed specifically for the marine industry and we’re super excited to get it in your hands and on on your vessels.

5 GHz-capable access point adoption has been relatively slow up until the last couple of years. As our internet use increases exponentially, our yearning for high-fidelity content grows, and our devices have gained support, the need for high-throughput connections has undoubtedly advanced as well. 5 GHz offers much higher maximum speeds and far less interference, over it’s 2.4 GHz counterpart. Installation of dual-band capable off-the-shelf routers and industrial access points has become commonplace and that popularity is bleeding into the marine industry at an alarmingly high rate. So popular, in fact, that many marinas are now 5 GHz only. As the trend continues, our AN-7000 will absolutely thrive in marine environments of today and tomorrow!

Please visit the AN-7000 product page for additional information.

We will be accepting AN-7000 orders immediately following the 2016 International Boat Show. We hope to see you all there!
