Maximizing Channel Utilization, Bandwidth Management and Security Services for SOHO

Hsinchu, July 4, 2006 -- ZyXEL Communications Corp. (TSE: 2391), the world's largest DSL router provider, today unveils its P-334U/P-335U 802.11a/g Wireless dual band router designed exclusively for the home and small office users. ZyXEL P-334U/P-335U boasts high-speed 802.11a/g Dual Band wireless connection, intelligent bandwidth management, and robust firewall. The versatility of ZyXEL P-334U/P-335U allows the users to take advantage of both wireless standards in a secured broadband sharing environment.

ZyXEL P-334U/P-335U integrates the IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g standards in one device to provide high speed and quality transmission for users of both wireless standards.  In addition to its built-in 4-port switch, ZyXEL P-335U also features printer sharing capability via a USB port, allowing home or small office users to print wherever they are.

To maximize bandwidth utilization for "Triple Play" applications, ZyXEL's exclusive and smart Media Bandwidth Management v2 automatically prioritizes bandwidth sensitive service such as video streaming and IP phone. This intelligent function ensures smooth operation of multiple bandwidth-hungry applications without degrading the quality of Internet experience.

ZyXEL P-334U/P-335U will support the IEEE 802.11e Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) standard with future firmware upgrade. WMM allows users to allocate more WLAN network resource to preferred video or voice services for a better multimedia experience.

For security, ZyXEL P-334U/P-335U comes with built-in SPI Firewall and DoS/DDoS protection to fight against malicious threats.  Thanks to ZyXEL's exclusive OTIST ("One-Touch" Intelligent Security Technology) technology, data encryption between the P-334U/P-335U and ZyXEL's 802.11a/g series wireless cards is activated by simply pressing a button on the router. The 256-bit WEP key, WPA and WPA2 features further ensure the most stringent wireless security available.
