ZyXEL gets Eclipse hardware deal

Broadband networking specialist ZyXEL has won a major deal with business ISP Eclipse Internet to supply routers for customers buying its ADSL and FTTC products.

Eclipse senior technical support analyst Tom Ward-Scammell said the decision to refresh the firm's offerings had been taken in response to customer feedback.

"We evaluated around 30 routers and ZyXEL were one of the partners that came out on top due to their versatility," he explained.

The selected products are capable of supporting speeds of up to 300Mbps through fibre connections, as well as features such as backwards compatability with 802.11b/g wireless standards, among other things.

Eclipse said that strong wireless functionality had been a must have, and extra features, such as the ability to pre-programme wireless capability to be turned off and on at certain times of the day for additional end-user flexibility had sweetened the deal.

ZyXEL UK Service Provider Group head Mark Torrans said the move was "a strong endorsement of our products. We will be supporting and assisting Eclipse to further enhance their service and support to customers."
