Actiontec Receives Multiple Awards From TMC's Communications Solutions

Three's the Magic Number -- Actiontec M1000 Modular DSL Router, MegaPlug AV Ethernet Adapter, and Wireless Broadband Router All Win 2007 Product of the Year Award From Communications Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Actiontec Electronics today announced three of its products have received a 2007 Product of the Year Award from Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC) Communications Solutions. No company won more honors in this year's awards.

Actiontec's award winners were:

-- M1000 Modular Router: The first of its kind, the M1000 reduces costs for DSL service providers by giving them a single solution to meet the needs of all their customers. Providers can supply customers with the same low-cost base unit and then add user-requested upgrades with simple snap-in modules such as wireless networking, 4-port Ethernet switch for wired networking, a HomePlug AV adapter for powerline networking, and a VoIP adapter.

-- MegaPlug AV Ethernet Adapter: Based on the next-generation powerline HomePlug technology, MegaPlug Adapters use a home's existing electrical wiring to give residential consumers blazing-fast home networking speeds (up to 200 Mbps) to fuel bandwidth intensive applications like online gaming, Video on Demand, and HDTV.

-- Wireless Broadband Router: A triple play powerhouse capable of delivering high throughput multimedia services for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) scenarios, the router offers both Ethernet and MoCA WAN support and provides a built-in 4 port Ethernet switch, Wireless G router, and other LAN networking options for MoCA and HPNA3.

"It is a true honor to receive three awards from Communications Solutions," said Brian Henrichs, VP Business Development at Actiontec Electronics. "This recognition affirms our leadership position in driving the next-generation digital home and enabling broadband service providers to deliver a whole new class of communication and entertainment experiences."

"Actiontec has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."
