    CHICAGO, June 18 /CNW/ - Focusing on its vision to enable the
transformation of the average household into a modern Digital Home, ZyXEL
Communications continues to bring integrated technologies to consumers that
are fast, secure, easy to use and affordable. This week at the NXTcomm 2007
conference in Chicago, ZyXEL will showcase a full range of broadband access
and digital lifestyle products including IP xDSL Multi Service Access
Platforms, broadband gateways, FTTx solutions, WiMAX CPEs, HomePlug AV,

communications and entertainment products can be viewed at booth # 3275 at
McCormick Place, where the company will also conduct live demos exhibiting
ZyXEL's broadband access solution streaming voice, video and data and products
for a connected digital home.

    In addition to its broad product lines and innovative live demos, ZyXEL
will showcase its new multi-service access platform, the IES-6000. With the
IES-6000, the flagship of ZyXEL's IP DSLAM offerings, service providers can
easily provide advanced and flexible DSL service to more subscribers with less
operating and capital expenditure. Versatile line cards allow a single
IES-6000 chassis to support ADSL2/2+, VDSL2, G.SHDSL and POTS / VoIP services.
The IES-6000 has dual 10G uplink, DC power inputs, failover-enabled management
switching features and hot-swappable FAN modules with bottom-top ventilation

    "We offer a complete IP access solution from MSAP to CPEs to service
providers who are migrating to next generation IP networks to offer rich,
value-added voice, video and data services," said Munira Brooks, senior vice
president of sales, marketing and business development at ZyXEL. "As consumers
strive toward building a residence that is fully connected, we have products

    Live Demos

    At its NXTcomm booth, ZyXEL will host live demonstrations of a complete
central office and customer premise solution offering IPTV service over
multiple DSL technologies and digital home solutions. Visitors will have a
chance to witness the power of the company's end-to-end QoS, which enables the
convergence of voice, data and video services as well as multicast technology
for optimum bandwidth utilization.

    The "Central Office" demonstration will feature the IES-6000 Multi
Service Access Platform (MSAP), a switch that cable companies use to offer
three different flavors of DSL service - ADSL2+, VDSL2 and G.SHDSL. This
demonstration will simultaneously provide IPTV service over ADSL2+ and VDSL2
technologies. It will also include lifeline POTS enabled service using ZyXEL
VOP-1248 line card for the IES-6000 that converts analog voice to SIP / H.248
based VoIP traffic.

    The "Customer Premise" demonstration will showcase two residential
scenarios. One home scenario will have two simultaneous HD IPTV streams beamed
through a VDSL2 connection over ZyXEL's P-870 series VDSL2 gateway. The other
home scenario will be powered with an ADSL2+ (P-660 Series) connection and
will represent a modern digital home with networking over powerline (PLA-400),
a digital media streamer (DMA-1000) streaming HD video to the TV from a
central storage and media server (NSA-220).
