Actiontec Debuts Powerful VDSL2 Modem Featuring Dual-core 32-bit Processor, Built-in 802.11n Wireless and Plenty of Memory to Easily Manage the Entire Digital Home
Actiontec's Q1000 is one of the most robust routers available today with enough processing power and memory to drive the next generation of broadband
Sunnyvale, Calif., June 30, 2009 - Actiontec Electronics today announced the Q1000 Wireless N VDSL Modem Router, the latest addition to its line of triple play VDSL2/ADSL2+ Universal DSL Wireless Gateways. Sporting a Wireless N radio, Gigabit Ethernet switch, and capacious amounts of memory, the Q1000 represents one of the most powerful DSL routers ever built.

While most modems on the market provide only a single 32-bit processor and limited memory, the Q1000 boasts a powerful wireless N radio, gigabit Ethernet, a dual core 32-bit processor, 32 MB Flash, and 64 MB SDRAM. This high performance platform means the router can simultaneously support a wide range of demanding multimedia applications, including HDTV, Voice over WiFi, media sharing, and online gaming.

"As consumers continue to drive the demand for a richer online experience, carriers are continually looking for ways to deliver faster speeds and more entertainment and communication options," said Brian Henrichs, vice president of business development at Actiontec Electronics. "The Q1000 offers a new standard in home router performance - and ensures that bandwidth-hungry, multi-tasking consumers have all the processing power they need today and tomorrow."

The powerful home gateway also features Gigabit Ethernet on the LAN or home networking side. With support for blazing speeds up to 1,000 Mbps, the Q1000 ensures users can stream HD video content, simultaneously download or upload large data files and more without having to worry about network slowdowns, hiccups or a loss in voice, video or data quality.

Along with Gigabit Ethernet, the Q1000 also supports 802.11n wireless, and is backward compatible with older wireless protocols. The router's MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) smart antenna technology improves home coverage and minimizes those despised dead spots that plague other WiFi products. The router also includes a fully customizable firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection, denial of service protection, content filtering, intrusion detection, plus WPA/WPA2 and WEP wireless encryption to keep home networks secure.

While the Q1000 supports the latest VDSL2 access technology, it also features an "Auto Fallback to ADSL 2+/2" function that lets carriers deploy the same device on older networks. Cost and complexity are significantly reduced as there's only one SKU to manage and less inventory to handle. In addition, the router is equipped with TR-069 remote management to minimize costly truck rolls and provide superior customer service.
