Zoom Ships New World-Class Wireless-G
Boston, MA , September 23, 2005
— Zoom Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZOOM)
announced today the expansion of its wireless-G product line
with the shipment of three new Wi-Fi® products - a USB
adapter, a PC Card for notebook users, and the AP+2. The AP+2
is a wireless access point which can also be used as a game
adapter to provide wireless connectivity for Playstation®
and Xbox® users, and as a repeater to extend the range
of a wireless network.
Zoom designed these products with three things in mind –
performance, ease of use, and international compatibility.
The Zoom Wireless-G products not only provide the latest
802.11g 54 Mbps technology, but also incorporate proprietary
enhancements that can dramatically improve throughput performance,
providing effective speeds up to 140 Mbps when communicating
with another Zoom Wireless-G device. Zoom Wireless-G products
can be used in 802.11b and 802.11g networks, and in mixed
networks using both technologies. Because Zoom’s Wireless-G
products are based on the 802.11 standard, they work well
in networks that include products from Belkin®, D-Link®,
Linksys®, Netgear®, Zoom® and other producers
of 802.11 products.
All products in the Zoom Wireless-G line include multi-lingual
documentation in seven languages, and meet the regulatory
requirements for wireless products in the US, Europe, and
most of the rest of the world.
The Wireless-G line provides the perfect complement to Zoom’s
full-featured X6 ADSL 2/2+ modem with built-in 802.11g. The
X6 also incorporates a router, 4-port switch, and powerful
SPI firewall to provide a complete connectivity solution for
Zoom Wireless-G products support both WEP and WPA wireless
security to help eliminate network intrusion, and are backed
by Zoom’s 2-year manufacturer’s warranty and excellent
U.S.-based technical support
