ZyXEL Demonstrates Service-On-Demand Solutions for Home Monitoring and Telehealth Services With OSGi Technology at CES 2011

Broadband Networking Provider Displays IPv6 and VDSL2 Gateways, Offering End-to-End Design and Manufacturing Expertise for Simplified Deployment

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 4, 2011) - Consumer Electronics Show - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, will showcase several forward-looking technologies at CES 2011, January 6-9, at the Renaissance Hotel.

Exhibiting four separate live demonstrations, ZyXEL will present IPv6-ready gateways, service-on-demand solutions based on the OSGi specification, telehealth gateways and VDSL2 channel bonding to meet the latest demands within the telecommunications ecosystem. ZyXEL also collaborated with leading vendors Celeno Communications and Entra Health Systems to bring the latest developments to its growing customer base looking for Wi-Fi home networking applications and wireless glucose meters, respectively.

Specializing in developing custom networking devices, ZyXEL provides solutions that facilitate faster deployment, easier integration and superior reliability for its customers. The first customer premises equipment (CPE) vendor to secure IPv6-ready certification, ZyXEL offers the broadest collection of integrated smart gateways with IPv6 and OSGi for service-on-demand, which will be on display at CES. The company will demonstrate its gateways' ability to communicate with IPv6 DHCP and FTP servers, while simultaneously supporting dual IPv4 and IPv6 protocol stacks for telecommunication providers making the transition to next-generation technology.

ZyXEL will also showcase its OSGi software modules installed on home gateways for home monitoring via webcams and energy control features that enable families to remotely turn on and off appliances. The OSGi modules can be remotely provisioned, offering service providers the ability to customize services to fit the needs of individual subscribers without replacing the gateways, resulting in greater cost-savings and quicker deployments.

"We've invested heavily in developing hardware and intelligent software to offer our customers the widest selection of integrated smart gateways with future-proof technologies such as IPv6 and OSGi for service-on-demand," said Brian Feng, senior vice president of ZyXEL. "We are excited to display our latest innovations at CES, as we continue to strive to meet our customers' needs and be on the leading edge of development."

ZyXEL will also demonstrate how its telehealth smart home gateway can facilitate remote digital health monitoring, such as diabetes management. ZyXEL's solution can communicate with a glucose monitoring sensor over Bluetooth, then convey the information to a web portal via 3G or wired Internet for viewing by healthcare professionals and patients. ZyXEL can enable several other telehealth applications as well. Lastly, the company will showcase gains in throughput achieved with VDSL2 channel bonding technology.
