Zyxel Communications Corporation
award 2

ZyXEL released the world's first SISO mobile WiMAX broadband/voice/security NAT router in 2006. In 2007, ZyXEL presented the world's first MIMO mobile WiMAX broadband/voice/security NAT router, which combined TR-069 and OMA-DM protocols to facilitate remote management by operators and lower management costs.

Bringing Customers Closer to Leading Technology through Stylish Household Integration
ZyXEL has long endeavored to naturally integrate hi-tech products into its consumers' living rooms through stylish designs. What looks like an elegant coffee pot or photo frame could actually be an indoor user terminal (the MAX-206M2) for a 4G system. Over the years, such smart designs coupled with top-notch functionality have won over customers for ZyXEL.

Own Brand Promotion and Strategic Partnership with International WiMAX BS Vendors
ZyXEL promotes its own WiMAX products instead of through OEM partnerships. The company works with international WiMAX BS vendors to promote user terminal products along with BS as a total solution for eliminating operator concerns about inter-operability. This way, both ZyXEL and BS vending partners earn benefits from each other's strengths. The target customers are in developing countries that often lack the infrastructure to start delivering broadband otherwise.
So far, ZyXEL WiMAX products have been deployed in Taiwan, Latin America, the Middle East and the USA.
