Anaheim, Calif., September 10, 2012 – Drawing upon a deep heritage of innovation in 3G, Wi-Fi and WiMAX technologies, Zyxel Communications today introduced its all-in-one LTE512x series CPE to the North American market. The LTE512x delivers 4G fixed broadband Internet along with a complete range of connectivity options – Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, VoIP ports and support for smart home services like home automation and monitoring.
A leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity, connected home and routing products, Zyxel designed the LTE512x with a high performance LTE module and a MIMO antenna array supplying up to 100Mbps (downlink) and 50Mbps (uplink) connectivity for rich, triple-play services including IPTV and Video-on-Demand, voice and high speed Internet. The LTE512x series includes the LTE5121 supporting Band 4/17 and the LTE5122 supporting Band 13.

Zyxel’s LTE512x series distributes its LTE-based Internet throughout the home via Gigabit Ethernet, 300Mbps 802.11n Wi-Fi, SIP-based VoIP ports, and USB. Virtually any Internet-capable device can connect to the LTE5121 and LTE5122 and share devices such as printers and storage. Service providers can utilize its expansion options to enable new consumer applications, including home automation and monitoring with ZigBee, Z-Wave or Bluetooth-based sensor systems.

Enhancing ease of use, LTE signal strength LEDs help consumers identify the best position and placement of the device for optimal wireless connection. In addition to its two sets of dual internal antennas for LTE and Wi-Fi, the LTE512x series offers the option to add two external high-gain antennas for improved signal strength and higher performance. Another enhancement includes a user-friendly SIM card cap preventing accidental ejection of the SIM card, ensuring continuous service.

“The LTE512x series reaffirms ZyXEL’s commitment to leading every broadband access technology and offering service-rich CPEs to operators,” said Brian Feng, Senior Vice President for ZyXEL. “This new LTE series broadens our CPE portfolio while adding another option for fixed broadband delivery for our customers.”

In making the LTE5121 and LTE5122 an ideal choice for modern digital homes, Zyxel has loaded the device with open standards technology including SIP for Voice over IP, TR-069 to help operators remotely manage and troubleshoot the device, and DLNA for consumer entertainment device media streaming compatibility.
