Efficient Networks introduces wireless, powerline DSL gateways
Efficient Networks Inc. is debuting its new SpeedStream DSL Gateway Family of products that includes a gateway combining a DSL modem with 802.11g wireless networking technology in a single box and a gateway combining DSL access with 802.11g wireless and powerline networking technologies.
"The demand for merging wireless and powerline with DSL has been tremendous," said Tom Willie, vice president and general manager at Efficient. "Subscribers aren't just looking for higher-speed Internet access. They want a true broadband experience, complete with rich, compelling content and valuable service offerings."
Products in the family include the SpeedStream 6400 Powerline/Wireless DSL Gateway, the SpeedStream 6300 Wireless DSL Gateway, and SpeedStream 6200 Wireless-Ready DSL Gateway.
All of the gateways come with new ControlNet embedded software, which extends content of a service provider's portal directly to the customer premises by embedding service provider offerings within the advanced routing code of ControlNet. The software also features Web site monitoring, parent-controlled content filtering and time-of-day Internet access controls.
