Two Actiontec Products Named as Finalists in 2010 American Business Awards(SM)

Wireless N VDSL Modem Router and MI424WR Wireless Broadband Router Honored in the Telecommunications Category

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Actiontec Electronics announced today that both its MI424WR Wireless Broadband Router and Wireless N VDSL Modem Router have been named Finalists in the "New Product or Service of the Year - Telecommunications" category in the 2010 American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. More than 2,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May.

This year's Stevie® Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 21 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than six hundred executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The event will benefit Oceana (, the largest international organization focused on ocean conservation. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network.

"We're honored that two Actiontec products were named to this prestigious group. It's a great testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team, and it further confirms our company's leadership role in driving the next-generation digital home forward," said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics.

Actiontec's Wireless N VDSL Modem Router is a residential powerhouse that packs in a wireless N radio, Gigabit Ethernet switch and WAN port, dual-core 32-bit processor, support for HPNA (LAN and WAN), and superior memory architecture. With support for VDSL2, HPNA 3.1 (HomePNA), and Gigabit Ethernet on the WAN side, Actiontec's router provides unprecedented deployment flexibility. Carriers can now use the same CPE device across all their deployment regions (in metro areas, rural...), meaning there's just one SKU to manage, one product to support, less inventory to handle -- and upgrading customers to faster speeds is seamless.

Actiontec's second finalist, the MI424WR Wireless Broadband Router, serves as the centerpoint for all high speed Internet activity in the home. The router is the first device to feature a dual-core, 64-bit processor that allows it to support home networking speeds up to 1 Gbps. By setting a new industry benchmark for performance, service providers can increase service speeds beyond 100 Mbps and better meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated consumer base by rolling out value-added, bandwidth-intensive applications, such as parental controls, online gaming, music, live sports, children's entertainment, movies and television programming.
