Sunnyvale, Calif., November 9, 2009 – Actiontec Electronics announced that two of its DSL solutions have been selected to power MTS Allstream Inc.’s (“MTS Allstream”) high-speed residential DSL service. A wholly owned subsidiary of Manitoba Telecom Services, MTS Allstream is one of Canada’s leading national communication solutions providers.
Actiontec Electronics has shipped more than 17.5 million Internet access devices across the globe. Since launching its initial DSL modem to the market, Actiontec has continued to stay in the forefront of industry standards, DSL and home networking technologies. The company’s experience in modem design and supply-chain process delivers great value and affordability to carriers and access providers.
“MTS Allstream is pleased to include Actiontec’s innovative products in our broadband service offering,” said Kelvin Shepherd, President Consumer Markets, MTS Allstream. “We look forward to working with Actiontec as they play a key role in our ability to provide fast Internet speeds and a dependable and energy efficient service to our customers.”
MTS Allstream selected Actiontec’s GT724WG 54 Mbps Wireless DSL Gateway and the GT701D USB/Ethernet DSL Modem. The GT724WG combines a full-rate ADSL2+ modem, a 4 port Ethernet switch and 802.11g wireless gateway in a sleek, easy-to-use package. Support for the ADSL2/2+ standard can triple the available bandwidth from 8 Mbps to 24 Mbps – giving bandwidth-hungry consumers the speed needed to enjoy fast downloads, online entertainment, high quality video streams, and online gaming. The gateway also includes an Internet firewall with four user-configurable protection levels, as well as WEP security to protect the home network from outside threats.
With an ENERGY STAR adapter and small footprint, the green GT701D helps customers reduce their energy bills and protect the environment. The compact device combines a full-rate ADSL2/2+ modem with a router capable of networking two computers via wired ports, or more through a switch or hub.
