ZyXel Updates DSL

BRACKNELL, U.K. -- ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd, the UK subsidiary of one of the world’s leading broadband access solutions specialists, today announced the launch of a new range of DSL modules for low port density deployments as well as the UK’s first fully managed SHDSL router. The solution allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to cost effectively deploy local loop unbundling, especially for less densely populated areas, allowing them to beat the competition for local network provisioning. The combined managed solution supports the new SHDSL.bis standard, offering speeds of up to 8 Mbs - twice as fast as a traditional SDSL router and currently unique to ZyXEL.

“Service providers in the UK are continually being challenged to deliver more and more services to businesses,” said Jon Pearce, product manager, ZyXEL. “We have seen the migration from dial-up to ISDN to leased line technology and xDSL grow rapidly over the past few years. There are currently around 300 different ISPs in the UK, so the pressure for providers to differentiate themselves is more intense than ever before. The new products, utilising SHDSL.bis, will help ISPs provide superfast SDSL speeds cost-effectively in the challenging low density exchanges, enabling them to extend their coverage percentage and thus stand out from the crowd.”
