Actiontec Launches Family of Pair Bonded VDSL2 Routers for High Definition IPTV and Triple Play Services

Versatile, High Performance Routers Fit Into Virtually ANY Ultra-Broadband or Broadband Architecture

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Actiontec Electronics introduced two new Pair Bonded VDSL2 Routers to its award-winning portfolio of IPTV residential gateways. The newly launched V2000H and Q2000 routers have been built specifically for the most demanding high-bandwidth triple play services, including HD video/IPTV and Voice over IP. As a result, service providers can quickly roll-out IPTV services, along with a robust bundle of data, entertainment, and communication services. 

Both IPTV routers support pair bonded and single line VDSL2 and single line ADSL2+, letting service providers take advantage of the extended reach and high bit rates of the latest bonded DSL technology. The routers also feature an "Auto Fallback to ADSL 2+/2" function that lets providers deploy the same device on older networks. In addition to DSL support, the V2000H also is equipped with a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet WAN port for FTTH (fiber to the home) applications.

In short, carriers and broadband providers can use the same CPE device across all their deployment regions, including FTTH, FFTN (fiber to the node), and FTTP (fiber to the premises) architectures. There's no need to deploy one device today, and another tomorrow. And, there's just one SKU to manage, one product for customer service to learn -- and upgrading residential customers to faster speeds and new services is seamless.

"Universal flexibility is a key theme in our CPE strategy," said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics. "We believe in building products that can be seamlessly used across different territories and different network topologies, today and tomorrow. Our collaboration with leading service providers confirms that this approach yields significant operational savings."

Both routers feature key technology innovations to support demanding triple play applications, including high-speed network interfaces, robust memory architecture, and state of the art bonded VDSL technology for improved bit rates and reach. By comparison, most residential routers can't come close to the speed and performance of Actiontec's routers.

The V2000H and Q2000 support advanced home networking to facilitate the distribution of bandwidth-intensive services, such as HD video streams, throughout the home -- including multi-room DVR, online gaming, music streaming, file transfers and more. Both routers feature an enhanced wireless N radio and a built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch for speeds up to 1000 Mbps. In addition, the V2000H supports the latest HomePNA (HPNA) technology for distributing IPTV and more over a home's existing coaxial cables.

The new VDSL2 routers make it easy for service providers to offer revenue-generating applications. With optional support for Java Virtual Machine and Java Runtime Software, the V2000H and Q2000 can host a number of Java applications, such as home automation and enhanced security. Applications can be instantly enabled as soon as they're ordered (similar to a mobile app experience), rather than requiring a lengthy full-scale firmware update or other cumbersome process.

The V2000H and Q2000 also support TR-069 remote management capabilities to enable technical support staff to remotely troubleshoot customer problems without a home visit.

Actiontec will showcase the V2000H, Q2000, along with other products in its award-winning IPTV and broadband portfolio, at the ninth annual TelcoTV conference from November 9-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada (Booth Number 151).
