ZyXEL Partners with Polkast to Reshape Digital Life Experience

February 23, 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, introduces an exciting new mobile feature for digital home users. Incorporated with Polkast solution in the newly launched ZyXEL NSA300 Series media servers, it enables users now to easily connect tablets and smartphones with direct access to Media Servers to form an instant personal cloud for secure remote access to the proprietary media libraries. ZyXEL users can now not only enjoy their multimedia contents at home, but also anytime, anywhere.

With ZyXEL Media Servers, home users can freely store and retrieve massive multimedia contents such as digital photos, home videos and high-definition audio and video files for personal enjoyment or simultaneous sharing among family members. Now with the popular Polkast personal cloud service, ZyXEL users can also access and share media libraries away from home by searching through thousands of files, browsing photos, and watching stored videos through the free Polkast mobile app.

Unlike public cloud services, the ZyXEL personal cloud has neither storage limit nor time-consuming uploading/downloading processes. When in the connection on the same local network (LAN), the Polkast mobile app can take advantage of super-fast Wi-Fi speeds for nearly instantaneous transmissions. This exciting personal cloud service is now available for users of any NSA300 Series media server model to download from the iTunes and Android app stores.

As Internet reforms people’s life with a wealth of data, resource and information alone with explosive development of digital applications, people expect to stay connected to their contents using every device, wired or not. In additional to the rich features, the innovative personal cloud technology built into the NSA300 Series Media Servers also makes it the best-in-class choice for the modern digital lifestyle.

For complete information about the NSA models and the respective features and functionalities, please visit the personal cloud video and media server series (NSA325, NSA320 and NSA310), or contact your local ZyXEL sales representatives. In the upcoming 2012 CeBIT in Germany, visitors are invited to the ZyXEL booth to witness the impressive power rooted into the mobile feature.
