ZyXEL Launches Industry-First Enterprise-class Green Integrated Service Gateway

Secured Voice and Data Communications for Businesses

September 23, 2011; Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company providing leading Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small- and medium-sized businesses to home users, today launches an industry-first single system platform that integrates data processing, VoIP communications and network security functions. Built upon an innovative concept, the brand-new ISG50 Integrated Service Gateway Series aims to specifically equip business users with a high-performance network management centre to efficiently perform uninterrupted, exceptionally secured business communications over VoIP with protection against emerging network threats. Adopting the newest EEE 802.3az green standard, the ISG50 even cuts power consumption by up to 73%.

The new ISG50 Series is a multi-function integrated service gateway that supports businesses and their remote offices with IP telephony, Firewall, VPN (Virtual Personal Network) and routing services powered by one single platform. IP telephony enables inter-office and intra-office extensions with the Internet Protocol for optimal efficiency and cost of business communications. As smart phones reshape the personal and business communication landscapes, the ISG50 Series allows smart phone users to stay connected with a single mobile device through App configuration without missing a call delivered over any protocol.

Powered by ZyXEL’s leading-edge network security technology, the ISG50 Series comes with field-proven Firewall and VPN features to protect data and voice communications from phone hacking, abuse and intrusion from any current and emerging forms of threats to prevent unexpected business loss. The distinctive security feature ensures voice communications to remain safe and sound anytime, anywhere.

Moreover, the ISG50 Series is the world’s first enterprise-level integrated service gateway adopting the EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) 802.3az standard for power-saving deployments. With the pioneering design, the device can save power consumption up to 73% to underscore ZyXEL’s commitment to a green environment. Just finalized by IEEE in September 2010, the standard aims at reducing power consumed by the Ethernet interface while retaining full compatibility with the existing equipment.

With the powerful integrated functions and performance from a single platform, IT managers are relieved from configuration chores and interoperability headaches among various networking devices, while resources business owners invest on network management are better integrated and optimized to enhance the overall operational efficiency as well. Better yet, the solid integrated architecture of ISG50 will empower businesses to take early initiatives preparing for the upcoming trend of network unification for cloud applications.
