Zyxel Communications announced today the ONE Connect solution designed for consumers to blanket Wi-Fi throughout the home in a breeze.
Centered on the ONE Connect mobile app, the solution is designed to simplify the process for consumers to create whole-home coverage with Zyxel routers, wireless extenders and powerline adapters. Users will be able to easily extend wired or wireless signals through walls, across floors or in a large area with minimal and simple app-based setup. This means more Netflix upstairs and no more dropping FaceTime calls in the backyard.

Designed with simplicity

Designed to minimize setup steps required, the ONE Connect app guides users on copying existing configuration to a newly added device and automatically prioritizes network traffic to deliver the best user experience for each connected user. A few taps on the app allows users to quickly pause children’s Wi-Fi access or provide temporary Wi-Fi to guests.

A Wi-Fi blanket for homes from large to small

For gaming and streaming enthusiasts or consumers with a townhouse, the Armor Z2 AC2600 Wi-Fi Router and the powerline adapters PLA5206 v2 and PLA5236 ensure lag-free gaming and full-HD video streaming across a large area. Thanks to powerline adapters that allow signals to travel through mains from power sockets, users no longer have to run long and messy cables across rooms.

For mid-size homes, the NBG6815 router and the WRE6606 Wi-Fi extender deliver gigabit 11ac MU-MIMO Wi-Fi throughout the home – even to the terrace or backyard, as the WRE6606 can be powered by a portable power bank and placed anywhere. For the design-conscious, the device’s aesthetic, elegant design easily blends in with any modern home decor.

For those living in a small condo or flat, the entry-level MU-MIMO router NBG6617and the MU-MIMO wireless extenders WRE6606 are more than enough to bring speedy 802.11ac Wi-Fi to multiple users at the same time.

ONE Connect is not just a tool to speed up home network setup, it helps consumers gain a 360° view of their home network through one interface,” said Bill Su, AVP of Zyxel Smart Living Business Unit. “The solution will be rolled out to more Zyxel devices in the future, so that consumers looking for whole-home coverage will be able to find their best suited bundles.
