Established in 1992, the Taiwan Excellence Awards recognize products that showcase innovation in Taiwan to a worldwide community. The Ministry of Economic Affairs organizes the annual event, and winners are selected by a panel of 90 judges for demonstrating “best of breed” innovations across multiple sectors. The 2018 Taiwan Excellence Awards marks the honor that a Zyxel product was selected from among nearly 1,500 entrants for the prestigious Silver award.

The accolade for the Multy X Tri-band WiFi System was particularly significant as Zyxel was the only networking brand among the finalists. The Multy X Tri-band WiFi System delivers high-performance, reliable wireless network coverage throughout the home, bringing complete signal coverage to larger living spaces. Along with providing uninterrupted high-speed WiFi, Multy X is remarkable for its ease of use and simple setup via an intuitive smartphone app. Features like parental control, guest networking, and Alexa-enhanced voice controls can be effortlessly implemented and managed via the app.
