“A new filing with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission has revealed an updated AirPort Extreme wireless base station from Apple is forthcoming,” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider.
“The new hardware was outed this week by the FCC and discovered by Engadget. The filing, made by Apple on June 16, shows a 3×3 802.11n access point, dubbed model A1408,” Oliver reports. “The label includes mention of AirPort IDs in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz range, as well as an Ethernet ID. The hardware carries an FCC ID of BCGA1408.”
Oliver reports, “The documents do not reveal what may have changed in the new hardware model, but it’s likely the new hardware is set for imminent release given the timing of the FCC filing.”
