ZyXEL Communications has announced the ZLR-2070S fixed LTE CPE/SOHO router. The ZLR-2070S is an all-in-one, multi-service gateway that leverages compact, system-on-a-chip (SoC) technology to deliver non-FPGA-based LTE connectivity. ZyXEL will demonstrate the device live at CES 2010.?
The ZLR-2070S includes broadband Internet connectivity, two VoIP ports, home networking via a four-port, 11n wireless switch, and a USB port (to share devices, such as printers and storage). Service providers also can use the ZLR-2070S to enable Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) and other smart home automation services. The ZLR-2070S offers data rates with up to 50 Mbps throughput.
Based on the router’s 4G wireless connectivity, the device is ideal for providing service in rural or other traditionally under-served markets where new wireline deployments are cost-prohibitive. The level of portability also makes the device ideal for scenarios in which customers need high-speed, multi-user Internet access in a temporary location, such as construction sites or special events.
