Ultimate WiMAX MIMO Technology for Ultimate Mobility
ZyXEL's MAX-206 series CPEs are the world's first WiMAX Forum certified mobile devices that provide the highest link budget while WiMAX networks are still in the early stage of deployment. The router provides users with seamless broadband wireless connectivity and the freedom to surf the Internet and access any information at home, in the office or anywhere under WiMAX coverage. The MAX-206M2 gateway comes with dual 5dBi gain antenna integrated into the device with 27dBm output power and a built-in ICSA certified firewall. Its versatile design, including two VoIP ATA ports, ensures carriers that their investments in mobile WiMAX devices will provide the maximum added-on values for even more applications.
