1. Taiwan's Leader of WiMAX Base Station Technology
In addition to its constant development of CPE products employing the WiMAX technology, ZyXEL also made its appearance in the WiMAX central office equipment arena in 2005; the company had launched WiMAX base stations of micro, pico and femto scales, and successfully completed the field tests for these equipments as well. ZyXEL has since become Taiwan's leading, and even only, company with development,
manufacturing and system testing capabilities of WiMAX products; and the ability to make femto-class base stations also proves ZyXEL's strong WiMAX expertise over other vendors. With the growth of WiMAX infrastructure, femto base stations are expected to be more prevalent in homes. As the mainstay of the global WiMAX market, ZyXEL's femto-class products will be more imperative then ever to become the key of Taiwan's next-generation telecom environment.

2. Home Wi-Fi Device with Best Coverage and Excellence Speed
Designed for home Wi-Fi environments, the ZyXEL MAX-1200 WiMAX Femto Base Station provides the best coverage. The device not only helps WiMAX operators to enjoy more flexibility in fundamental deployments, but also allows users to easily setup and take advantage of their wireless networks. To meet the needs of home markets, ZyXEL has made considerable investment on WiMAX technology to design this low-power base station with features like limited local coverage, high-speed wireless transmission and high stability. In addition, the home-oriented design of the MAX-1200 fits any place in the house for less blind spots and better WiMAX signal coverage.

3. Home Technology of Stylish Design and Taste
The exterior of ZyXEL MAX-1200 goes well with everything in a home setting. Its elegant white bake lacquer case with matching chrome-plated trims is unusual in the technology products, while the simplistic LED signal lights are also an eye-catching touch to the already stylish home design.

4. Easy Installation for Users, Remote Management for Operators
Since ZyXEL's MAX-1200 WiMAX Femto Base Station comes with the auto-provisioning feature, service operators don't have to configure each unit individually. On the other hand, its plug-and-play design also saves time for customers; just plug in the power cord and the Ethernet cable and it's ready to go. To further simplify the administration tasks, the TR-069 specification is supported for operators to perform remote management and software download/upgrade for the MAX-1200 in order to lower the deployment, operation and maintenance costs while generating more profits.

5. Maximize Bandwidth Utility with Effective Management
Comparing to larger base stations shared by tens of users, the ZyXEL MAX-1200 WiMAX Femto Base Station limits the number of concurrent users to 4-6 to maintain better throughputs for each user. The connection based on Femto Cell reduces competition among users to achieve higher speed, and relieves burdens from large base stations to empower the overall network performance as well.

6. Advantages to Network Operators
(1). Expanded profit base: better coverage and wireless connectivity will encourage the usage of mobile media service, which in turn generates more profits from each user.
(2). Reduction of wires loop costs: the backhaul cost of connection to operators' core networks will be shared by the users through DSL, cable or fiber optics fees without the involvement of network service providers.
(3). Customer loyalty and migration: the cooperation between wired network and Femto base station operators can effectively retain customers from switching operators and attract more people to use the Femto base stations.
