Corporate Overview

Actiontec Electronics develops broadband solutions that connect people to the Internet, applications, and content they care about. Our products, including Gigabit Ethernet fiber routers, high speed bonded VDSL2 gateways, 4G LTE routers, DSL modems, and whole-home networking solutions, are deployed by some of the largest telecom carriers in North America. Alongside our service provider partners, we're turning the promise of the digital lifestyle into reality, enabling consumers to enjoy any content on any device in any room in the house.

The connected home is evolving fast, with increasing demands for speed, applications, and content. More devices in the home or office require network connectivity than ever before. We’re committed to helping our carrier customers rise to the occasion and turn these needs into a reality. We’re developing products that not only push faster speeds to the home, but within the home as well. Our whole-home solutions give consumers countless wired and wireless options for connecting their home theater devices, gaming consoles, computers, tablets, mobile devices, and more. And with uncompromised quality, we’re making sure consumers can watch television and HD video just about anywhere in the home.

Additionally, we keep a close eye on the service provider's bottom line, and ensure our products are easy to install, manage, use, and support. We’re pushing manageability (such as TR-069) further into the home, giving end users a more seamless digital experience and making it easier for service providers to manage the many devices used on today’s home networks. We also maintain a large customer support and design team in the United States that enables us to respond quickly to requests as they arise and help our service providers take advantage of each opportunity.

Our company is led by a seasoned management team with over 100 years of collective experience gained at companies such as Apple, Cisco, GenBand, General Motors, IBM, Micronics, Microsoft, Motorola, National Semiconductor, Tellabs and Westell Technologies.

Industry Leadership

Actiontec is a leader in the connected home, with more than 30 million connected home devices sold to date. Our products have been adopted by leading Tier 1 and Tier 2 Internet Service Providers, including Verizon, CenturyLink, Frontier, Telus, TDS Telecom, MTS Allstream, Bell Aliant, Sasktel, and more.

We’re constantly pushing the envelope on what’s possible in the connected home and our innovation has been recognized throughout the industry time and time again. Our smart home service gateway (SG400) and MyWirelessTV were awarded prestigious CES Innovations awards in Design and Engineering. We took home over 40 industry awards in the last two years.

We’re committed to industry alliances and we play an active role in industry organizations, including: Broadband Forum, BMMA (Broadband Multimedia Marketing Association), WiFi Alliance, HomePlug Powerline Alliance, MoCA (Multimedia over Coax) Alliance, HomeGrid Forum, Z-Wave Alliance and the Zigbee Alliance.

Green and Diversity Initiatives

In 2011, we established a formal Sustainability Program that sets aggressive targets in multiple areas, including: water conservation, electronic waste and scrap product recycling, paper recycling, energy usage and more. We're an enthusiastic participant in PG&E's ClimateSmart program and offset 6% of all carbon dioxide produced at our Sunnyvale Headquarters in 2011.

The majority of our modems and routers are ENERGY EFFICIENT, helping families reduce their electrical bills and energy use. We hope our green efforts not only minimize our own impact, but also serve as a model for other high-tech companies.

And since minerals originating from conflict regions can end up in electronics and other products, we’re participating in the Conflict Minerals Pilot Program to bring more transparency to the product supply chain and help promote the responsible sourcing of mineral resources.
