More of daily life depends on digital devices and network connections than ever before. The steep learning curves of learning how to use such devices can sometimes intimidate users from going forward. ZyXEL steers the “One strategy” to home by offering a digital lifestyle that is easy and convenient for service providers and end users, even those with no experience setting up complex networks.

The heart of the smart home lies at the Dual-Band Wireless Router (NBG6816) and GPON IAD (PMG5618), a combination that builds up extensive network coverage across corners at home and connects networking devices altogether. Devices include the Personal Cloud Storage, a network attached storage device with gigantic 24TB storage capacity (NAS540) which saves literally every file you need for work and leisure, the Powerline Wireless AC extenders (PLA5435) which convert your existing power lines at home for network extension as they are plugged in power sockets, and many more. Coupling the devices with the Home Network Management Solution, ZyXEL OneConnect, allows users to manage their digital home through a centralized and intuitive interface.

These award winners all share one thing in common: simplicity in use or deployment. The simplicity comes from in-house technology integration geared towards customers. ZyXEL’s customer-centric mindset adheres to the five interwoven values judged for the Taiwan Excellence Award - R&D, design, quality, marketing, manufacture in Taiwan.

The Taiwan Excellence Awards is a widely recognized name for innovation. The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) of the Taiwanese Government has organized it since 1992, recognizing products qualified to represent Taiwan and to shine in the worldwide community. Award-winning products, including ZyXEL’s NAS540 and NBG6816 were also showcased in Mobile World Congress 2015 at booth 1D46, Hall 1 in Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain.
