ZyXEL Introduces Premium Dual-Band Wireless Router to Support Two Separate High Performance Home Networks

Supercharged Gateway Doubles Performance, Enabling Users to Stream Digital Content and Browse the Internet on Different Frequency Bands for an Enhanced Experience

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity, home entertainment and routing products, today announced the availability of the NBG5715, a simultaneous dual-band, 450Mbps wireless-N router. A premium model in ZyXEL's wireless-N series, the NBG5715 creates two separate, concurrent networks to double performance compared to a traditional router. This enables consumers to browse the Internet over the standard 2.4 GHz band, while high-bandwidth, low-latency activities, such as streaming Internet movies or playing lag-free games online, can be performed over the 5 GHz band. The router also uniquely features two USB ports to accommodate sharing both a printer and a storage device over the network.

An innovative design that incorporates three MIMO antennas, ZyXEL's NBG5715 is capable of transfer rates up to 450Mbps simultaneously on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands. This design offers power users maximum flexibility in planning a high-performance home network. It's also ideal for families with home offices who can now separate business and home network on different frequency bands.

Two built-in NetUSB™ ports allow families to share multiple peripheral devices, like storage, printers and scanners, over the home network. To ensure reliable wall-to-wall wireless connectivity throughout the home, the NBG5715 applies an innovative SmartRange technology, which pinpoints wireless clients like laptops and tablets and transmits directly to them. Further enhanced with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, the NBG5715 offers consumers all the latest connectivity options for their home. The NBG5715 also features top security features and 5 VPN tunnels for home office users. An intuitive web interface makes it easier to navigate through all the router's advanced features. ZyXEL's NBG5715 also includes a power on/off button to save energy and reduce a user's environmental impact.

"We've assembled all the latest advancements in wireless and networking technology in our smartly designed NBG5715," said Steven Joe, executive vice president of channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "We are confident that the NBG5715 will please even the most discerning user with its form and function."

Availability and Price
The NBG5715 is currently available from all ZyXEL authorized resellers and e-commerce partners at an MSRP of $250.
