The Ministry of Economic Affairs has organized the Taiwan Excellence Awards since 1992. The awards recognize products that represent Taiwan in the worldwide community and were reviewed and selected by 90 judges who gave the crown to the best-of-breed innovations across sectors.
Zyxel’s award-winning products cover connectivity products and solutions for home, business and telecom service providers. The Armor Z2 gaming router and the dual-band 802.11ac extenders WRE6505 v2, WRE6606 and PLA5236 together build up seamless wired and wireless coverage for the entire home. The devices allow users to extend speedy Wi-Fi throughout the house and light up the Wi-Fi dead corners with 802.11ac technology, whether it’s on the balcony or across floors.
For business, the 802.11ac Smart Antenna Wi-Fi access point (WAC6503D-S) earned a proven record in 2016 of outperforming competing products with an average 75% better throughput, thanks to the world-leading smart antenna design. The VPN firewall (USG20-VPN) helps businesses connect with branch offices, remote locations or telecommuting employees with advanced SHA-2* VPN technology to secure communications, boosting both security and productivity.
For service providers, the LTE4506-M606 is the world’s first 4G LTE-A HomeSpot router which supports both LTE category 6 and 802.11ac technology to help service providers and their customers extend connectivity anywhere utilizing mobile broadband services all over the world. Its palm-size, light-weight design and the one-of-a-kind one touch button for instant Wi-Fi sharing also earned it the 2016 Golden Pin Design Award.
“It has been our singular focus to deliver innovative products and solutions to help solve customers’ pain points – to be their networking ally,” commented Gordon Yang, President of Zyxel. “It’s a great encouragement to be recognized again for this focus.”
