The Zyxel PMG5617GA is a dual-band wireless ONT Home Gateway Unit (HGU) fully compliant with ITU-T G.984 and Wireless IEEE 802.11ac/n that provides ultra high-speed fiber access along with 4-ports GbE LAN for wired connection, 2-port FXS for VOIP services, one USB 2.0 port and 2×2 11AC and 2×2 11N Wireless LAN configuration.
With years of Zyxel’s worldwide GPON end-to-end experience in the field, the PMG5617GA is flexible to fit into various deployment environments based on unique network topology requirements from customers. Furthermore, the Zyxel CPE OPAL trunk contains a rich software feature set that substantially help the GPON PMG product series to accelerate the time-to-market speed and to become more powerful on delivering customization software features to operators.
Apart from adopting the latest 802.11ac technology to expand dual-band concurrent wireless connections, the Zyxel PMG5617GA enhances its WiFi circuit design to ensure superior, stable wireless performance on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands while maintaining backward compatibility with any IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi-certified device. Besides, the Zyxel PMG5617GA further incorporates Front-end Module (FEM) into its hardware design to eliminate most possible dead zones in any environment for end users to enjoy a seamless wireless experience everywhere with this standalone ONU home gateway.
Keeping the same Web GUI and management interface, such as CLI command set that makes it extremely easy for Telco operators to migrate from the existing wireless N300 ONT to the new dual-band wireless PMG5617GA that provides outstanding triple-play experience without huge investment on operating expenses. Moreover, the ultra-thin hardware design significantly minimizes the housing height to 32mm with brushed finish on surface makes the PMG5617GA not only an advanced optical terminal Home Gateway Unit, but also a delicate, elegant decoration for the interior space.
