ZyXEL Demonstrates Green Initiative at IFA Berlin 2011

August 30, 2011, Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class networking company that provides innovative and reliable Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, medium-sized businesses to home users, announces its demonstration which will highlight its ”Green Initiative” at IFA, which takes place from September 2nd to the 7th, in Berlin, Germany. IFA is a global trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, showcasing the latest products and innovations in the heart of Europe‘s most important regional market. Together with several other Taiwan companies, ZyXEL will demonstrate a few green products at Taiwan’s Image Hall, with the theme of ”Taiwan - Greening Your Life”, organized by an external trade office sponsored by the Taiwan government.

As one of the leading broadband networking companies that has pioneered the way for the “green initiative” and having received many outstanding awards and recognitions from international organizations, ZyXEL will present its latest green products – VDSL2 VoIP IAD (P-2812HNU), Fast Ethernet Switch (ES1100 Series), and Home Router (NBG 4615) at this international showcase. All three products not only feature exceptional functions and performance, but their green design also validates ZyXEL’s total commitment to better environmental care and protection.

Designed with advanced 802.11n Wireless technology, as well as VDSL2/ADSL2+ Dual-Mode functions, the P-2812HNU VoIP Internet Access Device enables service providers and carriers to provide smart home systems and on-demand services as added-values for residential users. It provides not only stable, reliable wireless connections for high-speed data and multimedia transmission, it also features extensive coverage that is free from dead-zones. “Wireless Scheduling”, a green design, enables optimized power efficiency by allowing users to wirelessly manage connectivity schedules, depending on actual utilization and needs. 

The NBG4615 Home Router is designed for home users who desire to make a contribution to a greener environment while utilizing their home equipment. It is enhanced with two advanced technologies - Wireless N and Gigabit - for wireless and reliable connectivity and is coupled with NetUSB™ and a few other environmental-friendly features, such as scheduling, power on/off, and wireless on/off switches, so the NBG4615 enables home users to easily and wirelessly switch on/off, according to usage patterns.

ZyXEL is one of a few networking solutions providers that offer comprehensive solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. The ES1100 Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Switch Series provides multiple port-count options and most distinctively, is compliant with 802.3az, the newest green standard just finalized by IEEE in September 2010. The EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) 802.3az standard is set for power-saving deployment to reduce power consumption by an Ethernet interface, while retaining full compatibility with existing equipment. Additionally, the ES1100 boasts a few more green designs, such as ”Detect Cable Length”, which adjusts power usage according to a connected Ethernet cable’s length; “Detect Inactive Link”, which adjusts power consumption based on the number of active network devices and a “Power On/Off Switch”, which allows users to turn a device on or off remotely.
