Actiontec Takes Home Connected Home Honors in 2013 Mobile Merit Awards

Actiontec’s WCB3000 Wireless Network Adapter named runner-up in Connected Home category

Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 24, 2013 – Actiontec Electronics announced that its WCB3000 Wireless Network Extender/Adapter with MoCA was named runner up in the 2013 Mobile Merit Awards. The wireless extender was honored in the Connected World/Connected Home category.

The Mobile Merit Awards recognize companies, individuals and technologies that have shaped the way in which the world communicates today. Through nominations the Mobile Merit Awards notes the excellence achieved in the global mobile industry. This year’s winners were judged based on industry impact, innovation, technologies, social importance, implementation and overall success factor.

Actiontec’s new WCB3000 WiFi extender helps eliminate dead zones in a home’s Wi-Fi network, so users can enjoy all their favorite devices in any room they choose. It uses a wired MoCA connection and offers dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios, giving it the best performance around for extending the home’s Wi-Fi network. In fact, the WCB3000 adapter is the first to offer dual-band concurrent radios for less congestion and better wireless performance.

The WCB3000 can either work directly with a MoCA router/gateway or it can be paired with an ECB2500 MoCA network adapter allowing homeowners to create their own MoCA coax network to reliably extend whole home wireless coverage.”

“The Wireless Network Adapter is an important part of our Whole Home Wireless strategy – which aims to give homeowners the best possible WiFi service in the most areas of the home. We’re honored to be recognized by the Mobile Merit Awards. This year’s awards had so many innovative entries from across the globe, which is a reflection of the strength of the industry as a whole,” said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics.
