ZyXEL Recognized in CRN’s 2016 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide
“We are particularly proud to have been selected for inclusion in CRN’s Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide this year because it highlights our dedication to helping our channel partners grow their businesses and increase their revenues through the new ZyXEL Freedom Program,” explained Jeff Gallifent, Channel Chief and Director of Channel Sales for ZyXEL. “ZyXEL’s comprehensive portfolio of networking products and solutions, combined with the benefits provided through our robust, but simplified partner program truly gives resellers a vendor partner that is dedicated to helping them succeed.

The research team compared the APs in co-channel interference environments and found that ZyXEL’s WAC6503D-S outperformed competing APs with as much as 75 percent higher throughput.
