IBM UltraConnect Antenna

IBM/Lenovo UltraConnect

UltraConnect was IBM's, now Lenovo's name for the built-in antennas that could support both the 802.11a and the 802.11b wireless networking standards. It has gone through two iterations: UltraConnect and UltraConnect II. While UltraConnect was IBM's marketing umbrella for antennas supporting the 802.11a, b, and g standards, UltraConnect II was Lenovo's marketing umbrella for antennas supporting the 802.11a, b, g, and n standards.

The UltraConnect antennas are built into the top portion of the ThinkPad's display lid, which are connected to a wireless network controller.
