Aug 18, 2011, Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class networking company that provides innovative and reliable Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small and medium-sized businesses to home users, is happy to present its latest digital home solutions to enable a high quality, digital lifestyle for households in India, Indonesia and Vietnam, where Taiwan government’s TAITRA, an external trade development council, is aggressively rolling-out integrated marketing communications activities to promote awarded ‘Taiwan Excellence’ brands. As one of the awarded companies from Taiwan, ZyXEL is showcasing its state-of-the-art home networking products to further validate this honor.

The three targeted markets are regarded as dynamic and promising markets among the many emerging markets. Take India for example, to extend broadband connectivity across the country, the Indian government kicked off a ”Revolution in Data Connectivity 2009-2014 Program” in 2009, with its goal to increase its Internet subscriber base to 100 million and to provide Internet connectivity to all villages by 2014. (source: cellular-news.com in Sept 2009). In Indonesia, as remarked by the secretary of the Directorate General of Application of Informatics in July 2011, the number of Internet users in Indonesia had reached 45 million, with more and more Indonesians being expected to become Internet users. While in Vietnam, according to a recent report released by the Vietnamese General Statistics Office at the end of July, there were 31.1 million Internet users out of total population of 87 million, an increase of 24 percent from the previous year and 4 million were broadband Internet subscribers, representing a 19 percent increase year-over-year.

As one of world’s leading Internet solutions providers, ZyXEL presents its advanced home network solutions that provide households with the capability of enjoying high-performance, digital entertainment in the comfort of their own home. The P-660HN-T1H is an ADSL2+ Wireless Gateway designed in bright white and stylish photo-frame housing, ideal for placement next to any other modern home electronic appliance. It not only performs at an extraordinarily high speed for data and multimedia streaming and in extensive wireless coverage powered by 802.11n technology, but it also has a built-in, robust firewall security feature that protects users against hackers, network intrusion, and other cyber threats. For multi-devices Internet connectivity, the Wireless N Gigabit NetUSB™ Router – NBG4615 is a perfect option for extensive home networking. Designed with advanced Gigabit Wireless N technology, home users are able to enjoy simultaneous, multimedia applications, such as high-definition video streaming, gaming or Web surfing concurrently over different devices. The built-in NetUSB™ feature allows users to share stored data and multimedia contents in USB or hard drive freely and wirelessly to printers or other media-play equipment for instant print-out or play-back. For households requiring multi-room and multi-floor connectivity, the high-performance Wireless N Access Point – WAP3205 is the best companion to either the P-660HN-T1H or NBG4615, to extend wireless coverage beyond walls and floors. Family members are able to enjoy digital multimedia entertainment, either together or individually, in private, without worrying about network connectivity performance and undesired intervals.

To optimize the home entertainment experience, households are also encouraged to equip themselves with ZyXEL’s full HD digital media streamer (DMA2501), as well as its high-storage capacity, media server (NSA221) to effortlessly enjoy various multimedia contents without the constraints of space and time. With the growing diversity of multimedia applications and contents, households can store massive amounts of photos, music and video footage in the NSA221 and play back on any available display system by connecting with the DMA2501, which supports rich media formats and accessibility to thousands of free Internet radio stations. Both devices are designed with visible and intuitive user interfaces for easy click-and-play, allowing users to retrieve the multimedia contents from the NSA221 and play back through the DMA2501 any time on HD display systems for personal relaxation and family entertainment.
