ZyXEL Launches 802.11ac Home Router
Unleashing Extreme Wireless Performance from Latest Mobile Devices
Jun 10, 2013, Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class networking company that provides wired and wireless Internet-enabled solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, medium-size businesses to home users, launched NBG6503 – ZyXEL’s first high-performance home router built with the leading-edge 802.11ac dual-band technology. The new capability of NBG6503 802.11ac Wireless AC750 Home Router ensures high wireless streaming speed and reliability, especially when the traffic is packed with high-definition multimedia contents.
As multimedia applications evolve to integrate with more high-definition digital contents, users of smart mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones also face challenges competing for connection speed and reliability. The new groundbreaking 802.11ac technology operates packet transmissions concurrently on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, which allows bandwidth-intensive HD applications to stream over the less-congested 5GHz band for optimal Wi-Fi performance. With such robustness, optimized throughput and bandwidth efficiency, traffics on both bands can not only achieve speeds of up to 750Mbps but are also interference-proof for better streaming quality. For example, users of the latest 11ac-capable mobile handsets such as HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z can enjoy flawless full HD 1080p video playback freely.
As family members usually use different mobile devices simultaneously for different purposes, the NBG6503’s built-in QoS (Quality of Service) functionality intelligently prioritizes data flow over the bands used by the devices for better performance. Users of bandwidth-driven applications such as video calls, interactive video/audio streaming and online gaming are guaranteed to enjoy high bandwidth efficiency and wireless connection quality.
While hurdle-free wireless connection brings convenience and enjoyment to people, network security becomes a huge concern in the cyber world. The NBG6503 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless Home Router features an easy-to-setup WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) design that activates wireless network security in seconds with a simple press on the WPS button.
ZyXEL commits to developing green products, and the NBG6503 is no exception. The scheduled power-saving mode allows users to schedule the utilization duration according to the actual usage pattern; the power for wireless connection is automatically turned off when the connection becomes inactive to reduce electricity consumption. Moreover, the wireless output management feature enables home users to decide wireless coverage as such both the unnecessary high power usage and the corresponding expense can be avoided.
Empowered with the leading-edge 802.11ac dual-band technology, the new NBG6503 home router is bound to bring home users with refreshing wireless experience.
