This year’s Communications Solutions award winners for Actiontec were:

  • Wireless VDSL 2/ADSL 2+ Gateway: Actiontec’s new line of triple play VDSL2/ADSL2+ Universal DSL Wireless Gateways are designed to fuel the next generation of high-speed data, HDTV, and Voice over IP services. The advanced gateway offers throughput speeds up to 100 Mbps upstream and downstream over existing copper access lines – enabling carriers to deploy ultra-broadband service via any access architecture including CO-based DSLAM, remote DSLAM, or FTTx and any access protocol (ATM or PTM).
  • Next Gen Wireless Broadband Router: The Next Gen Wireless Broadband Router sets new industry benchmarks for performance, enabling service providers to increase service speeds beyond 100 Mbps and better meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated consumer base. With its unprecedented high performance hardware design, the router can handle multiple high-throughput media streams simultaneously, including standard and HDTV-based video programming, online gaming, music, live sports, children’s entertainment, and more.
  • GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem: Actiontec’s GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem combines a full-rate ADSL/ADSL2+ modem, 4-port Ethernet switch, and 802.11g wireless router into a sleek, easy-to-use device. Actiontec’s Wireless DSL Modem is designed to make DSL hassle-free. The built-in Auto-Connect tool automatically detects the type of DSL service, as well as network settings for most North American DSL Internet Service Providers. As a result, home users no longer need to scratch their heads trying to make sense of the alphabet soup of acronyms, or dig through their paperwork or call technical support to find their correct settings. With the GT724WGR, configuring your DSL service is as easy as plugging in the modem.
