ZyXEL Introduces Additional IPv6 Compliant Networking Solutions

IPv6 protocol-activated VDSL2 products give Service Providers configuration options for more value-added services to customers

June 14, 2011
Wokingham, UK, June 14, 2011 – ZyXEL Communications UK, the world’s leading broadband access solutions provider announced today the availability of additional IPv6 compliant networking products, as an extension to ZyXEL’s existing IPv6 product portfolio, which began in 2004. With the launch of the new VDSL2 offerings ZyXEL confirms its position as a pioneer and leader in supporting IPv6 deployment.

ZyXEL received its first IPv6 Ready Logo Certification in 2004. Additional VDSL2 Integrated Access Devices (IADs) and CPE products received the “Phase II IPv6 Ready” Golden Logo in 2010. Today, ZyXEL is perfectly positioned to provide IPv6 products and solutions to service providers worldwide.

This newly developed ZyXEL End-to-End IPv6 Compliant Bonding Solution includes VDSL2 DSLAM with two models (VES1724 and VES-1608FE-57), a line-card (VLC1424G-56) for extendibility and pair-bonded VDSL gateways (P-873HNUP) featuring dual-functions with a Gigabit Ethernet WAN interface for FTTH applications and 802.11n Wi-Fi connection for up to 300Mbps. Critically for service providers and carriers, the gateway supports HomePNA 3.1 with a data transfer rate of up to 320Mbps, and unified USB Port Support Print Servers, USB-based NAS (network attached storage) or Z-Wave Wireless Device Controllers for a variety of Smart Home Applications.

With the arrival of IPv6 and its impact upon triple play services such as high-speed Internet access, voice and audio streaming, HDTV/Internet TV and interactive gaming, VDSL2 represents an ideal xDSL broadband networking technology that overcomes last-mile bottlenecks. Internet packages including higher bandwidth and advanced services will benefit Service Providers and carriers with more ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) to help sustain business continuity and to develop more growth. Bandwidth optimisation, and value-added features are significant considerations for infrastructure investment, particularly for DSL operators, who are facing aggressive competition from cable operators and fibre operators. Designed to increase both bandwidth and loop length, ZyXEL’s Pair-bonded VDSL2 Solution aims to provide operators and carriers the flexibility and cost-efficiency to upgrade their existing xDSL infrastructure with higher capabilities, to achieve higher performance and expandability, while developing more services at an affordable investment cost.

Looking to the trend for smart home applications, the pair-bonding solution will be ideal for several bandwidth-demanding applications such as IPTV, smart TV, home energy management, home automation and LTE (Long-Term-Evolution) femtocell applications that will allow operators to realise digital applications for customers’ needs. In compliance with the advanced IPv6 Internet protocol, the end-to-end pair-bonding solution ensures developers immediate readiness that avoids future upgrades or replacement costs.

In addition to its VDSL2 Pair-bonding Solution, ZyXEL offers a comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions compliant with IPv6. For complete information please visit:
