All-on-one home router for cities, country

Actiontec Electronics Inc. has pulled the covers off the Q1000H Wireless N VDSL Modem Router, which packs in a wireless N radio, Gigabit Ethernet LAN and WAN support, dual-core 32-bit processor, support for HPNA (LAN and WAN), and 32MB of flash memory.The company says the product's versatility reduces capital and operational costs for carriers, as it offers a single CPE solution for their entire network.

Carriers can now use the same CPE device across all their deployment topologies, the Orlando-based company said, from metro to rural areas. As a result, the device fits into any ultra-broadband or broadband access architecture, including ADSL, VDSL, fiber to the curb, fiber to the neighborhood, even fiber to the home. Plus, carriers can seamlessly upgrade residential customers to faster speeds and new services.

“We have been working closely with many of the high speed Internet carriers and the Q1000H directly addresses the application needs and challenges associated with their current and future broadband initiatives,” Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics said in a news release. “By offering a single SKU for an entire broadband architecture, the Q1000H delivers significant operational savings by streamlining ordering, inventory, training, installation, and support processes for the service providers.”

The Q1000H is among the first modems to support HPNA 3.1 on both the WAN (carrier) and LAN (home networking) side, the company said. HPNA technology transforms existing coax cables and phone lines into high speed connections with speeds over 100 Mbps. Support for the latest HPNA 3.1 standard provides guaranteed QoS, ensuring the quality levels needed for broadcast quality IPTV.

The device features integrated support for 802.11n, as well as  MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) smart antenna technology that improves overall home coverage with fewer dead spots. Also included is a fully customizable firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection, denial of service protection, content filtering, intrusion detection, plus WPA/WPA2 and WEP wireless encryption to keep unwanted visitors from accessing the home network.
