ZyXEL Introduces P-2602HWNLI-DxA Series 802.11g Wireless ADSL2+ VoIP IAD for Small Offices and Homes

Hsinchu, July 12, 2006 -- ZyXEL Communications (TSE:2391), world's leading broadband access solutions provider, today unveils its P-2602HWNLI-DxA series 802.11g Wireless ADSL2+ VoIP IAD for small office and home users. The new P-2602HWNLI-DxA series responds to the latest user demand on an integrated device for Voice over IP service, and facilitates the users to keep their existing ISDN phone service for VoIP or ISDN phone calls.

The P-2602HWNLI-DxA series complies with standard SIP (RFC 3261) protocol for Internet phone services. In addition, the two POTS ports design allows users to make two VoIP phone calls at the same time.

With intelligent Quality of Service (QoS) management features on the P-2602HWNLI-DXA series, network administrators can allocate network resources effectively to ensure quality of service for time-sensitive applications such as (VoIP and video-on-demand). This also prevents other bandwidth-hungry applications (such as FTP and file-sharing) from hogging network bandwidth.

The ICSA certified ZyNOS operating system gives state-of-the-art firewall protection based on Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) technology and to prevent DoS attacks. Thus the P-2602HWNLI-DxA series provides the first line defense against hackers, network intruders, and other malicious threats.  In addition, IPSec VPN helps ensure secured transmission between two sites, allowing secure connection between telecommuters and branch offices without expensive lease lines.

The built-in ISDN S0 on the P-2602HWNLI-DxA series allows users to keep their existing ISDN phone service for VoIP or ISDN phone calls.

ISDN subscribers can still make and receive ISDN phone calls using the same phone sets through the P-2602HWNLI-DxA series. Now switching between ISDN and PSTN phone services is simple when Internet connection is down.

In case of an unexpected power failure, users can still make regular PSTN phone calls with the user-friendly Lifeline support. This feature also kicks into work when the VoIP service becomes unavailable.

Available now, ZyXEL P-2602HWNLI- DxA series can be ordered via ZyXEL's global sales network, including direct from the company and through partnered service providers. The P-2602HWNLI- DxA series has three different configurations to suit the needs of different ADSL markets:
