Model # GT701D
he new Actiontec Ethernet DSL Modem with Routing Capabilities
is really two devices rolled into one. It’s a full rate DSL modem
and it’s a router, capable of connecting to one computer, via
Ethernet port, and even more using a switch or hub, with a minimum
amount of hassle. And because of its sleek design, small footprint
and ENERGY STAR rating, this “green modem” has become the DSL
Modem of choice for many of our customers.
Full Rate ADSL2+ Modem
ADSL2+ is the DSL standard that enhances modem performance by
tripling the available bandwidth (from 8 Mbps to 24 Mbps). Say
goodbye to stuttering, pixilated video streams and the endless wait
while downloading large files. There’s more room for voice data, as
well, so you can enjoy free or low-cost Internet telephone conversations.
Leading Chipset Architecture
The DSL Modem includes TI’s TNETD7100 Broadband
Communication Processor and Peripherals. The TNETD7100 is the
industry’s most densely integrated system-on-a-chip ever offered to
the ADSL CPE market by Texas Instruments. The TNETD7100 is
considered an ADSL bridge/router solution, integrating a broadband
communications processor and peripherals, ADSL physical layer, ADSL
line driver, and Ethernet physical layer.
Environment Friendly
The new GT701D Ethernet DSL Modem with Routing Capabilities
earned the ENERGY STAR rating, signifying that it uses at least 30%
less energy than modems with conventional power adapters. With its
superior energy efficiency, this DSL Modem helps consumers save
money on their electricity bill while protecting the environment
through fewer harmful emissions from power plants. In addition to
its energy efficient design, the DSL Modem features a small footprint
that helps minimize its environmental impact – with less materials,
packaging, and waste.
