ZoomAir Internet Gateway IG-4165
Selected As Outstanding Networking Device
MA, April 4, 2002 — Zoom Telephonics, Inc. (NASDAQ:
announced today that its ZoomAir Internet Gateway IG-4165
has been named "Editors Choice" by ZDNet in a comparative
lab-based review of wireless networking products. The ZDNet
Editors Choice Award represents excellence in a given product
category and is presented to products which the reviews editors
feel demonstrate superior design, performance, usability,
quality, and value.
The ZDNet review determined that
the IG-4165 demonstrated the highest throughput in their networking
tests. In addition, the unit was found to offer a number of
unique features including a parallel port print server, which
allows printer sharing even without the attached PC being
on, and multiple ports for connection to both broadband and
serial communications devices for Internet access.
Firewall security was also described as a significant strength
of the IG-4165, with the ability to dynamically open ports
based on an outgoing port number as well as offering the option
of placing a system outside the firewall as a "DMZ"
host. The unit also offers advanced stateful inspection of
all Internet traffic.
The ZDNet review concludes by
describing the ZoomAir Internet Gateway as a "great product
all round," which delivers high wireless throughput and
provides wired connections, support for both dial-up and broadband
Internet connections and functions as a print server.
