ZyXEL Communications, a leading supplier of networking and communications solutions, is giving retailers and e-tailers the perfect opportunity to catch the new wave of demand for higher-speed 802.11ac wireless connectivity that is expected to follow the recent release of the first Apple MacBook Air to support the emerging standard.

The company has launched two new routers that support speeds of up to 1750Mbps (NBG6716) and 750Mbps (NBG6503), bringing the highest performance wireless technology within the reach of all consumers. With the new MacBook Air leading the way, other laptop, tablet and mobile vendors are certain to follow suit and start including support for 802.11ac on their systems.

“This will trigger a surge of buyers seeking out routers that support the new standard and thus create a major opportunity for retailers and e-tailers. Until now, consumers have had no compelling reason to upgrade to 802.11ac. Now that support for this standard is being included in new mobile devices, that’s going to change very quickly indeed. By bringing these new and much faster routers to market now, ZyXEL is giving retailers and e-tailers every opportunity to catch the wave of demand that will undoubtedly be triggered by these new devices over the coming weeks and months”, says Martin Bratičák, Head of Channel CEE

ZyXEL has launched two models to meet the needs of users who want the very highest performance for home entertainment systems, such as HD video streaming and gaming, and those who want a more affordable 802.11ac option. Both offer significant performance benefits over the previous 802.11n standard, with the highest performance model offering speeds up to three times faster. They support simultaneous dual-band operation, enabling the less congested 5GHz frequency to be used for live video and other services that need continuous bandwidth availability, and the 2.4GHz band to be used for email data and web browsing.

The NBG6716 also comes with Qualcomm® StreamBoost™ Quality of Service (QoS) technology, which identifies different types of traffic, automatically,  and gives each application the bandwidth it needs to ensure the best possible performance for live TV and video streaming, gaming and voice.

With many consumers now connecting multiple devices to their home wireless network, these capabilities are becoming more important, says Harris. “In the modern home, there could be three or four users connecting two or three devices each at any one time. They will expect to be able to watch live HD video, play interactive games, listen to music, make use of social media and surf the web on demand, without any kind of compromise in performance. With their dual band support and with StreamBoost technology on the NBG6716, the new ZyXEL 802.11ac routers enable them to do all of that simultaneously, thus ensuring the best possible experience for every user on the home network.”

The higher speed NBG6716 is designed to appeal to users what want the very highest performance for multiple connections from their home router. The NBG6503 meanwhile, provides excellent 802.11ac features and benefits at an even more affordable price. Firmware upgrades are provided for both routers, automatically and free of charge.ZyXEL has also launched two new Wireless USB 3.0 Adapters to work with the new 802.11ac Routers, the NWD6505 Dual-Band Wireless AC600 USB Adapter and the NWD6605 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 USB Adapter.

Both the NWD6505 and NWD6605 Dual-Band Wireless USB Adapters take advantage of the latest 802.11ac technology. The accelerated throughput of 802.11ac over the less congested 5-GHz frequency band offers optimal, lag-free experience with streaming video, audio, VoIP, gaming, web browsing, and other entertainment and communication applications. Each is fully backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networks.

The ZyXEL NWD6605 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 USB Adapter delivers data transfer rates of up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz channel or 867 Mbps on the 5 GHz channel. It features two antennas, enabling it to deliver wider coverage and provide better wireless performance. It’s ideal for HD video streaming, online gaming, multiple downloading, and sharing multiple large files simultaneously.

The NWD6605 also uses a USB 3.0 interface for the fastest networking experience. USB 3.0 interface is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 with transfer data rates of up to 5 Gigabit per second. ZyXEL’s NWD6505 Dual-Band Wireless AC600 USB Adapter delivers data transfer rates of up to 150 Mbps at 2.4 GHz or 433 Mbps at 5 GHz1.

The NWD6505 and NWD6605 adapters are geared for desktop and laptop users who require a dual-band wireless AC network connection for faster HD video, media streaming and online gaming.  The compact, stylish, and lightweight design of the ZyXEL NWD6505 and NWD6605 also offers excellent portability for road warriors, vacationers, students, and others on the move.
