True dual-band radio optimized for High-quality HD media, gaming and Web browsing

The ZyXEL NBG6716 enables you to enjoy HD video streaming. Users can browse the Web on the 2.4 GHz band while watching HD video or play online games over the less-crowded 5 GHz band with smooth playback and low latency.


Specialized Smart QoS for the best movie, video and gaming experience

The ZyXEL NBG6716 adopts Smart QoS that takes advantage of the intelligent StreamBoost™ adaptive routing technology to bring unprecedented performance to home networks. It prioritizes bandwidth usages for optimized multi-stream HD video, gaming, IP voice services and Web browsing through assigning appropriate bandwidths to each application automatically. Smart QoS features an intelligent patent-pending algorithm that handles streams automatically to manage Internet traffic flows without user configuration; and it also minimizes the impact from large packets and lower-priority traffics on latency-sensitive tasks to effectively eliminate interruption to online games and video steaming applications.
