Alternative access via 3G/4G connections
ZyXEL DSL customer premises equipment (CPE) provides users with the ability to connect wirelessly to 3G/4G mobile broadband networks in the event of a DSL outage. If, for any reason, the broadband connection should fail, Internet traffic will be temporarily routed through a 3G/4G dongle, which can be plugged into any USB port on the gateway.
When the regular broadband service becomes available again, all traffic will be switched back to the DSL connection – automatically and without any user intervention.
As well as providing fail-over backup for the broadband line, using a 3G/4G dongle provides a way to get instant Internet access when users are away from their home or office.
Compatibility is assured as regular updates and patches for gateways are made available on ZyXEL’s global web site, so users can always find out quickly if their dongle is supported and simply download the appropriate patch file to enable access to mobile broadband services immediately. They can do this without having to completely upgrade the firmware, so it is fast, easy and convenient.
