Actiontec Lowers the Cost and Complexity of Broadband Deployment with a Single CPE Solution for any Network Type
With multiple WAN support for VDSL, Gigabit Ethernet, and HPNA networks, Actiontec launches one of the industry
Orlando, FL (TelcoTV09) - November 10, 2009 - Actiontec Electronics announced the V1000H Wireless N VDSL Modem Router - a residential powerhouse that packs in a wireless N radio, Gigabit Ethernet LAN and WAN support, dual-core 32-bit processor, support for HPNA (LAN and WAN), and superior memory architecture (32MB Flash, 64MB SDRAM). The product's unique versatility dramatically reduces capital and operational costs for carriers, as it offers a single CPE solution for their entire network.  

With built-in VDSL2 with Auto Fallback to ADSL 2+/2, HPNA 3.1 (HomePNA), and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the WAN side, the V1000H provides unprecedented deployment flexibility. Carriers can now use the same CPE device across all their deployment topologies - in metro areas, rural, and anywhere in between. As a result, the versatile device fits into any ultra-broadband or broadband access architecture, including ADSL, VDSL, fiber to the curb, fiber to the neighborhood, even fiber to the home.  Plus, carriers can seamlessly upgrade residential customers to faster speeds and new services all while using the same V1000H modem router as before.

"We have been working closely with many of the high speed Internet carriers and the V1000H directly addresses the application needs and challenges associated with their current and future broadband initiatives," explained Brian Henrichs, Chief Business Development Officer at Actiontec Electronics. "By offering a single SKU for an entire broadband architecture, the V1000H delivers significant operational savings by streamlining ordering, inventory, training, installation, and support processes for the service providers."

As one of the most robust home gateways ever built, the V1000H ensures a glitch-free experience for HDTV, standard TV, voice, media sharing, online gaming, and other multimedia applications. The V1000H is among the first modems to support HPNA 3.1 on both the WAN (carrier) and LAN (home networking) side. HPNA technology transforms existing coax cables and phone lines into high speed connections with speeds over 100 Mbps. Support for the latest HPNA 3.1 standard provides guaranteed QoS, ensuring the quality levels needed for broadcast quality IPTV.

The device features integrated support for 802.11n, the latest and fastest wireless networking protocol. With performance speeds six times faster than earlier standards, 802.11n lets consumers download HD movies in minutes or enjoy an online gaming experience that nearly rivals wired cables. The V1000H also features MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) smart antenna technology that improves overall home coverage with fewer dead spots. Also included is 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 unwanted visitors from accessing the home network.

Actiontec will demonstrate the V1000H, along with other products in its award-winning IPTV and broadband portfolio, at the eighth annual TelcoTV conference from November 10-12 in Orlando, Florida (Booth Number 209).
