MWR211 Provides Portable Internet Connectivity, Enabling Users to Stay Online Anytime, Anywhere

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - ZyXEL Communications Inc., a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, today announced a free upgrade to its mobile wireless router model MWR211 that will add 4G cellular access as an option, enabling users to connect to Verizon LTE or Sprint WiMAX networks, via compatible USB dongles. The upgrade broadens consumers' options to connect to the highest-quality bandwidth for a superior wireless experience at no additional cost.

Ideal for business travelers, casual vacationers, RVs or kiosk applications, the MWR211 can work with any cellular provider's data service.

"The mobile router category has been very successful for ZyXEL," said Steven Joe, executive vice president of channel business for ZyXEL. "Our latest 4G upgrade is free for all MWR211 customers and emphasizes ZyXEL's commitment to enhancing the product value for end users, even after the sale is done."
