Rebotnix Technologies based in Germany has this week unveiled a new Ethernet adapter they have designed for iOS devices, allowing you to, when necessary, connect your iOS device to a network via a wired connection.
This RB-Connect Ethernet adapter has been specifically designed to provide fast Ethernet connectivity for your Apple iOS straight from the box and is now available to back via Kickstarter priced at €99.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about its construction, design and functionality. Its creators explain a little more about what you can expect from the RB-Connect Ethernet adapter.
The idea from RB-Connect was born when my wife was in our kitchen and had no wifi signal at all for her iPad. For 10 years I create high end telecom communication tools and when I spoke to my senior engineer Peter Simon about this Ethernet problem for iOS we found a way to do it.
After some research we figured out, that there is a way from Apple to get an Ethernet wired connection for Apple iOS devices without using external power to the device. At the same time we found a way for not using an external USB Hub, or Ethernet switch vs. a ton of cables to enable this ethernet IP-Stack. That was the day RB-Connect was born.
Why we want to create RB-Connect? The picture shows the old way to get Ethernet cable speed for iOS. The setup is complex, you needed several adapters, cables and external power supply. Internal corporate and networks in educational institutions are often restricted to devices with ethernet access like in Hotels, Airplanes, Hospitals, Web-agencies where you can often get much faster internet speeds over a wired network connection.
