    A single platform with Dual WAN functionality supporting carrier service offerings via VDSL2, ADSL2/2+ or FTTH via Gigabit Ethernet WAN (EWAN) interface
  • Superior xDSL Pair Bonded Performance
    SNR Margin equalization across pairs, the weakest line will benefit from the excess margin on the stronger line. Line disconnects will not cause service interruption; Includes PTM (Packet Transfer Mode) over ADSL2+ mode substantially reducing overhead resulting in increased throughput
  • Superior Wireless Performance
    Wi-Fi 5 technology providing whole-home Wi-Fi coverage with 3 external antennas delivering 1600Mbps (1300Mbps on 5GHz and 300Mbps on 2.4Ghz) data rates; Beamforming and Band Steering support for added optimization & efficiency
  • BEC Wi-Fi Insights
    To assist with determining help analyze and troubleshoot common Wi-Fi issues. Quickly identify channel conflicts, signal levels, frequencies and a host of Wi-Fi/RF details to improve connection speed and network performance
  • Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS)
    Automatic prioritization techniques to allocate more bandwidth to delay latency-sensitive applications such as IPTV, OTT streaming, gaming, and voice
  • Robust Protection and Security
    Integrated firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), denial of service (DoS) mitigation, filtering, and parental control
  • Multiple Configuration Profiles
    Up to 8 completely custom profiles with configurable transitions can be created to support tiered service offerings, connectivity over multiple WANs, VLANs, multiple service networks or simply backup/test profiles
  • Save to Default
    Known good working network configurations are maintained in event that the subscriber presses the reset button, or in the case of a brownout/blackout. On the fly config changes can be saved and retained indefinitely
  • Cloud Management and Network Visibility
    BECentral®, BEC’s Cloud Management Platform, is designed to minimize deployment, lower support expenses, and maximize the operational efficiency and profitability of the operator. Includes support for FCC performance measurements with automated test execution, and report generation
