It has been Telia's ambition for many years to be the leading supplier of unparalleled WiFi experience. The company tries to deliver unmatched broadband experiences with higher speeds, greater capacity, and better coverage.
Zyxel Communications provides Telia with the EX5501 Dual-Band Wireless AX6000 Gigabit Ethernet IAD for a smooth migration to the new WiFi 6 technology.
To leverage all the power of WiFi 6, subscribers need devices that support the new technology. Currently, these are mainly available as smartphones, but more devices, laptops, and tablets are surely coming. Telia needs to upgrade its WiFi service to secure its competitive edge. The technology in Zyxel EX5501 is backward compatible, meaning that the devices subscribers have today will already work well with Zyxel EX5501.
Through this partnership, Telia drastically improves the quality of WiFi, enabling its subscribers to stream and surf on multiple devices simultaneously while still getting super-fast speeds.
The Zyxel EX5501 delivers wireless speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps on the 5 GHz band and 1.1 Gbps on the 2.4 GHz band. WiFi 6 technology optimizes bandwidth usage in the wireless network and provides greater capacity. This allows Telia significantly upgrades its competitiveness in the district to the next level.
With this launch, we’ve reached another important milestone in ensuring that our customers get the best WiFi experience in the home.
