ZyXEL UK announces Wireless N Gigabit Ethernet Router

100Mbps throughput to meet the needs of Super-fast Broadband

November 29, 2010

ZyXEL Communications UK, the world’s leading broadband access solutions provider today announced its home-orientated wireless N Gigabit Ethernet Router aimed at service providers.  The announcement comes as the race to offer consumers with super-fast broadband speeds of 100Mbps hots up. While the speeds on the network side are increasing, outdated hardware such as the router needs to keep pace or it may act as a bottleneck.  
 
Designed for super-fast broadband (FTTx /cable) the ZyXEL NBG4604 Wireless N Gigabit Managed Router integrates a Gigabit WAN port, a four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and a 802.11b/g/n WLAN access point. With routing performance of up to 100Mbps, this router is ideal to get maximum throughput and eliminate bottlenecks. 
 
Crucially for service providers the NBG4604 supports TR-069 based remote management ensuring that installation and support calls are kept to a minimum. For service providers who don’t support TR-069 the NBG4604 enables pre-configured customisation so that they too can offer a ‘plug n play’ experience. 
 
Richard Bayliss, Lead Developer, at Made Simple Technology, who has tested the product on a Virgin Media home cable line comments, “The NBG4604 product has clearly been thought about for service providers offering next generation services. The TR069 feature on the router gives a lot of functionality from a remote provisioning perspective. The speed is fantastic and can handle down and upstream speeds with ease, overall it is simple to set-up, with no complications and no wireless issues.”

Key product highlights include:
 - 300Mbps* Wireless N with Gigabit Ethernet for optimised media streaming with whole-home coverage
 - 100Mbps routing performance for super-fast broadband services
 - TR-069 remote management for easy installation
 - For those service providers without TR-069 a pre-configured customised option is also available
 - Multiple SSIDs for secured private access and public access sharing
 - SPI firewall protection 
 - VLAN enables efficient bandwidth allocation for triple-play services**
 - Support for two-levels of user access e.g. admin and user
*The wireless data transfer rate is theoretical. The actual data transfer rate may vary depending on the network environment.
