Iomega is expected to ship its first network-attached storage (NAS) device based on wireless networking technology.
The NAS 100d will be marketed as an entry-level NAS device designed for small office and home office users looking for an inexpensive storage device to put on their networks.
The NAS appliance will come in 160Gbyte and 250Gbyte configurations and will have built-in support for the 802.11g wireless networking standard.
It will feature a simple user interface that will allow users to do automatic back-ups and "drag-and-drop" file restoration. The device will also come with two USB 2.0 ports so that additional storage can be added to the appliance.
