GVTC-ZyXEL Partnership gives customers enhanced home Wi-Fi experience


SMITHSON VALLE — GVTC is maximizing the ultra-fast Internet connections it offers customers in the GVTC GigaRegion® with the deployment of two powerful ZyXEL Wi-Fi products.

GVTC’s Home Wi-Fi solution now features the ZyXEL EMG2926 dual-band wireless 802.11ac / 802.11n gigabit router and the ZyXEL wireless AC750 Range Extender. 

ZyXEL’s EMG2926 is the primary router with carrier-class Wi-Fi designed to operate simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, allowing for optimal user experience. The 802.11ac wireless offers superior throughput over the 5GHz band, making it ideal for video streaming applications. In addition, the EMG2926 features TR-069 enabling remote configuration and management for rapid support and superior subscriber experience.

The ZyXEL Wireless AC750 Range Extender complements the ZyXEL EMG2926 by increasing Wi-Fi coverage in a customer’s home. Specifically, the Wireless AC750 Range Extender broadens your wireless network coverage by eliminating dead spots for whole-home coverage. Users are able to enjoy the fastest video streaming, gaming and Web browsing on devices anywhere in the house.

The ZyXEL router duo is an ideal solution for delivering reliable connectivity to GVTC customers when multiple wireless devices are in use in the household. The ZyXEL combination also ensures a solid connection for the growing number of devices tied to the Internet of Things (IoT), such as Smart Home technology and Wi-Fi enabled appliances.

“GVTC is committed to leading the industry in servicing and supporting the connected home and assisting customers with any Wi-Fi issues as the proliferation of devices continues to explode,” said Tom Zanoli, GVTC Internet Product Manager. 

“Today, residential broadband customers are demanding impeccable wireless experience and mobility throughout their homes, and GVTC is committed to exceeding customer expectations,” said Brian Feng, Zyxel senior vice president. “ZyXEL is proud to have been chosen by GVTC in an effort to help their customers reach their full Wi-Fi potential.”
