ZyXEL Debuts Mini-Compact Travel Router

Enabling road warriors and vacationers to share Internet access among laptops, smartphones and tablets with ease

December 26, 2012, Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small- and medium-sized businesses to home users, today introduced its NBG2105 Wireless Mini Travel Router. The handy, palm-sized device enables business and leisure travelers to share a wireless Internet connection with several people using a variety of Internet-ready devices.

The new travel router allows users staying in hotels where only wired Internet access is offered to share encrypted connection among multiple laptops, ultrabooks, game consoles, smartphones and tablets. Its compact, stylish design will appeal both business and casual travelers who need lightweight, easy-to-carry mobile routers. With shared Internet connection rather than paying for multiple connections, businesses and families will enjoy significant savings.

The NBG2105 Wireless Mini Travel Router features Router/Client/WISP+UR function modes for user to easily take advantage of its convenient 3-way switch to select the modes that meet individual needs; it also has a “Clone MAC” switch and a “Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)” button for business travelers to easily share secure registered Internet access among multiple wireless devices.

In addition, the Wireless Mini Travel Router can also function as a portable USB-to-Ethernet adapter for mobile computing devices that do not have a built-in Ethernet port, so users can benefit from the maximum flexibility for the mobile devices to get connected anytime, anywhere.

The brand new Mini Travel Router provides a ZyXEL-exclusive advantage: the Mini Travel Router comes with a USB wall adapter with multiple plug shapes and a micro USB cable to accommodate different power plug types in various countries. This exclusive bundle brings users not only extreme mobility for Internet connection, but also relieves concerns on recharging mobile devices.

The NBG2105 Travel Router offers smart green features to reduce operating costs while taking care of the environment: it automatically adjusts power consumption by detecting link status and the length of connected Ethernet cables; when no active data transmission is detected, the device automatically enters a power-saving mode to avoid energy wastes to save electricity bills. In addition, the NBG2105 can also detect the length of connected the Ethernet cable and then adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length, the less power – and money – it consumes.

ZyXEL’s new Mini Travel Router NBG2105 is definitely the best companion while in travel. For product details, pls visit NBG2105 or contact ZyXEL’s local sales representative for product availability.
