Leadership in emerging technologies, including Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, Garner Zyxel a Trifecta of Prizes
Zyxel and its innovative product lines have been recognized at the Taiwan Excellence Awards, with its next-generation Wi-Fi 6 and 5G routers earning the company three separate honors – more than any other networking brand.
The awards, presented at a ceremony in Taipei on 25 November, marked the 16th consecutive year Zyxel has been honored at the event and increased its total prize haul to 95 awards.
This year’s success comes as the result of Zyxel’s forward-looking R&D in innovative technologies. In the past 12 months, the company has rolled out new lines of Wi-Fi 6 and 5G products, which have already been deployed in offices, factories, schools, hotels, and homes worldwide.
And the winners are…
Zyxel’s first award-winning product was the Armor G5 multi-gigabit router, which unleashes unprecedented data rates by utilizing Wi-Fi 6. The new standard in connectivity is complemented by a 64-bit 2.2 GHz quad-core processor with 13 high-gain antennas, allowing the Armor G5 to handle more than 30 simultaneous connections without compromising on speed. The router also fully supports Open VPN, allowing users to protect every connection and device on their network – even those that don’t normally allow VPN protection, like smart TVs and gaming consoles.
Similarly, Zyxel was awarded for its NR5101 5G NR indoor router – one of the first solutions on the market for 5G new radio (NR) fixed wireless access (FWA). The router delivers robust bandwidth and low latency even to areas that fixed broadband cannot reach. By leveraging the latest 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technology, it creates an ultra-high speed, dead zone-free Wi-Fi experience for users.
Gary Chen, Managing Director, Zyxel India said, “We at Zxyel are happy to receive the prestigious award from Taiwan Excellence, this award further adds to the global expertise and acceptance for the Zyxel as a brand. It conveys the innovation Zyxel brings to the market for our global satisfied customers. I thank Zyxel team for their continuous efforts in bringing these awards home again and again. Lastly, thanks to Taiwan Excellence jury for nominating Zyxel and awarding us with this award.”
Zyxel’s final honor was for a router in the same ground-breaking product line: the NR7101 5G NR outdoor router. It features the same lightning-fast 5G-powered speeds as the NR5101 but comes specially built for toughness, with a hardened IP68-certified enclosure with industrial-grade components that can withstand even the harshest environment and weather conditions.
The Taiwan Excellence Awards were established by the Ministry of Economic Affairs in 1993 and recognize products that offer innovative value. Entries are judged on their achievements in R&D, design, quality, and marketing.
