ZyXEL Communications, the Taiwanese telecomms solutions provider, is aiming to grab a slice of the region's broadband infrastructure market with the launch of its series of IP-based DSL Access Multiplexers (DSLAMs) at Gitex 2003.

The three solutions, the IES-1000, IES-2000 and IES-3000, offer broadband services such as broadcast video at speeds ranging from 128Kbits/s to 16Mbits/s.

They include an internet group management protocol-based snooping feature to optimise bandwidth utilisation, and management via SNMP or the web. The DSLAMs also provide port- and tag-based VLAN features and new mechanisms have been integrated to ensure Quality of Service (QoS).

The vendor is positioning the solutions as more cost effective than typical ATM-based DSL access systems, especially in areas where broadband services are not currently available.

"ZyXEL's solution minimises the cost of ownership, provides better bandwidth utilization and ease-of-use competitive edge for new services that today's providers need," says Yuh-Lung Chen, VP of ZyXEL's central office equipment business unit.

"By eliminating the need for ATM infrastructure, the solutions are expected to save potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in initial infrastructure costs, while generating new revenue sources and reducing provisioning and operational expenses," he adds. K8-71
