ZyXEL Commits to Demonstrate Complete Solutions in 2008 WiMAX Expo Taipei
Hsinchu, Taiwan, June 2, 2008 -- ZyXEL Communications (TSE: 2391), world's leading broadband access solution provider and Taiwan's first maker to offer comprehensive WiMAX product ranges, today announces that the company will demonstrate several innovative WiMAX products in the 2008 WiMAX Expo Taipei taking place at Taipei Show Hall II between June 2nd and 6th. The product ranges include WiMAX data cards, outdoor and indoor CPE, Micro, Pico and Femto base stations, as well as ASN gateways, among others.
WiMAX is a new technology of broadband wireless communication and ZyXEL has devoted to WiMAX products development since 2005. ZyXEL jumped into 16e mobile WiMAX products development instead of fixed WiMAX products from day one and release the world first SISO mobile WiMAX broadband/voice/security NAT router in 2006. In 2007, the world first MIMO mobile WiMAX broadband/voice/security NAT router combined with TR-069 and OMA-DM protocols to facilitate the remote management of operators during deployment and operation stages to low down the management costs, which also made differentiations from the other WiMAX equipment vendors.
As one of the few Taiwanese companies capable of both developing and producing WiMAX gears, ZyXEL has WiMAX base stations in different scales: MAX-3200 (Pico), MAX-1200 (Femto) and MAX-2021 (Micro). In the Forum, ZyXEL will display its advanced WiMAX MIMO equipments catered for different user needs, such as the MAX-706 ExpressCard, stylish and versatile MAX-206M2 Indoor SOHO router with integrated omni antenna and the MAX-306 outdoor router.
With rich experience in the home wireless device market, ZyXEL strives to fuse high-tech products and home environments to bring users customized solutions that suit them best. For instance, the MAX-206M2 WiMAX indoor router borrows the shape from a coffee kettle or a photo frame for customers to choose from, while disappearance of the antenna makes the device more akin to an appliance and more acceptable to home users. The intimate design not only makes MAX-206M2 the center of many trade shows, but also makes ZyXEL the leader of home-style technology products.
Today, ZyXEL's effort devoted into the WiMAX field bear its fruits. The company leads the WiMAX market with unparalleled expertise and products, and had won the coveted "Best of WiMAX World USA" international award in two consecutive years: the MAX-100 PCMCIA Card and MAX-200 Indoor Simple CPE in 2006, followed by MAX-3200 Pico Base Station and MAX-1200 Femto Base Station in 2007.
"ZyXEL has established strategic alliance relationships with many renowned WiMAX equipment makers and completed interoperability tests." said Dr. Yuh-Long Chen, ZyXEL's President. "To ZyXEL, the initial niche markets are mostly service providers in countries with developing infrastructures. ZyXEL has many recent successes on international WiMAX procurement projects, such as the 802.16e Mobile WiMAX equipment purchase of Taiwan's CHT in Taoyuan, along with other similar deployments in Central and South America, Middle East as well as North America."
