According to PCRange CEO, Raaj Menon, the new Billion routers are ready for the National Broadband Network (NBN). "As well as fast Internet access, these routers provide a digital nerve centre for the connected home. We expect huge demand from customers wanting to upgrade from older generation equipment.
“What makes these routers amazing is not just their performance, but their great set of features, including concurrent dual-band wireless, Gigabit, VoiP, NAS storage - all in one affordable unit!"
“Building on the success of Billion’s best-selling 7800N model, the Billion BiPAC 7800VDOX and 7800VDPX routers additionally contain a fibre-ready Wide Area Network (WAN) port, concurrent dual-band Wireless N networking and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) capabilities,” Menon said.
Other benefits touted by Menon with the new 7800 V series routers include easy access to the user-set Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) feature, which reduces the signal to noise ratio on the communications link between the router and the telephone exchange, and “providing the highest possible sync speed whilst maintaining stability of the ADSL2+ link.”
And, Menon says that both the Billion BiPAC 7800 VDOXand 7800VDPX also contain strong support for rich media content with preset IPTV and VoIP profiles, a USB port for Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and an integrated print server and DLNA media services.
“Both devices can be configured to allow guest access to their wireless networks, providing convenient and low-risk network Internet sharing in a busy family home,” Menon adds.
The routers have gone to market backed by a three-year warranty, with the Billion BiPAC 7800VDOX at an RRP of $249, and the 7800VDPX costing $229.
