ZyXEL Strengthens Broadband Access Product Offerings with End-to-End Bonded ADSL2+ Solution

    ZyXEL Unveils Bonded ADSL2+ CPE and Support for Bonded ADSL2+ on All
ADSL2+ Central Office and Remote MSAN/DSLAMs

    ATLANTA, October 23 /CNW/ - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of
secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, today
announced an extension to its ADSL product line with the addition of bonded
ADSL2+ CPE router and support for bonded ADSL2+ to ADSL2+ line cards for MSANs
(IES6000, IES5000 and IES5005) and standalone ADSL2+ DSLAMs (IES1248 Series).

    Utilizing ADSL2+ loop bonding, a service provider can combine two
existing copper phone lines into a single connection that delivers
high-bandwidth access. Carriers and service providers gain the advantage of a
quick, low-cost way to reach more subscribers with advanced broadband services
such as VoIP, IP television (IPTV), and triple-play bundles of voice, data,
and video.

    ZyXEL's bonded ADSL2+ CPE offering, the P663H-51 modem router will
support speeds of up to 48Mbps downstream/4Mbps upstream and include four
10/100 Ethernet LAN ports. Other capabilities include support for TR069
protocol for remote management, SPI firewall and DOS protection for security
and advanced QoS and multicasting features for triple play.

    "We would like to offer service providers all the options for broadband
access, including ADSL2+, bonded ADSL2+, VDSL2, G.SHDSL and PON so they can
choose the solution that best meets their needs," said Munira Brooks, senior
vice president of sales, marketing and business development for ZyXEL. "With
bonded ADSL2+ support, now carriers with original ADSL2/2+ technology will be
able to offer high bandwidth services to their subscribers without additional
investment," Brooks added.

    Benefits of Bonded ADSL2+

    Bonded ADSL2+ technology provides high-speed connections for rich media
services to customers otherwise out of reach because of their distance from
the central office or DLC (digital loop carrier). Even multiple streams of
high-definition television can be supported using bonded ADSL2+. Carriers can
use bonded ADSL2+ in rural areas where copper is much more prevalent and fiber
has not been fully deployed; bonded ADSL2+ technology can help maximize the
bandwidth and performance opportunities of the 'last mile' with a much more
cost-effective, easy to deploy solution.
