Forsway partners with Zinwell for next-gen Forsway Odin F-60 satellite terminals

February 24, 2022

Gothenburg & New Taipei City, February 24, 2022: Forsway, a leading Swedish provider of innovative satellite software and hybrid satcom terminals today announced a new partnership with Zinwell. A leading provider of digital cable, satellite, wireless equipment, 5G and IoT products and more, Zinwell has been chosen as Forsway’s hardware R&D and manufacturing partner for its next generation platform of Forsway F-60 satellite terminals.

The new F-60 model is intended for both fixed installations and connected vehicles, where Forsway is currently involved in an ESA funded development project. The Zinwell partnership is viewed as the start of a long-term relationship where the new hardware platform will be designed to target and serve several unique user groups.

Based on a combination of innovations from Forsway and Zinwell, the new Forsway Odin F-60 terminal will be launched with advanced capabilities for satellite reception and routing, including DVB-S2X and GSE, high performance networking, embedded LTE, and expandable internal storage.

- “Forsway’s prime criteria was finding a partner open to address evolving new challenges within the satellite industry and to harness the opportunities,” says Edvin Lindqvist, CTO at Forsway.

- “The benchmark Forsway hybrid approach to satellite connectivity demands a highly skilled R&D team, continues Edvin Lindqvist at Forsway. We have found the right combination with resources from Forsway and Zinwell to develop and create viable, robust, cost-efficient satellite terminal solutions for connectivity and video for the underserved and those still lacking broadband connectivity.”

According to Forsway, making satellite broadband connectivity affordable in underserved markets is a significant challenge requiring not only affordable broadband from satellite operators, but also a focus on forward-leaning hardware innovation to fulfil operator expectations. The need for high quality state-of-the-art design while prioritising cost-efficiency is crucial to meet customer demand.

- “Chester Wu, VP, Sales Division II, “Zinwell is very pleased to join a long-term cooperation with Forsway to address the challenges of creating a next generation of dynamic, robust hybrid satellite terminal solutions at an affordable price, not yet achieved by the biggest players in the market. Together we have big ambitions, and the right expertise to take the challenge.”

- “Reducing the connectivity divide in the majority of under-connected markets cannot be achieved with costly terminals as offered by some of the newest global headliners,” continues Edvin Lindqvist of Forsway.

MaxLinear Wave-2 Technology Selected by Zinwell for New Family of Home Networking Products

January 15, 2019

  • Gigabit-class powerline backhaul provides significantly higher data rates and lower latency than traditional Wi-Fi mesh solutions
  • Advanced TR-069 support delivers carrier-grade remote management capabilities

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, and Zinwell, a leading manufacturer of wired and wireless broadcast and broadband communication equipment, today announced a new family of home-networking products based on MaxLinear Wave-2 powerline technology.

Zinwell’s new product family includes several devices that enable consumers and service providers to build gigabit-class Wi-Fi networks with whole-home coverage:

  • PWS-9121 (base model) and PWS-9131 (pass-through model) are 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi extenders that leverage MaxLinear Wave-2 technology as a gigabit-class powerline backhaul. Both devices include a Gigabit Ethernet port and an easy-to-use push-button configuration. They are available in EU and US plug versions.
  • PLS-9111 (base model) and PLS-9141 (pass-through model) are Gigabit Ethernet adapters with embedded MaxLinear Wave-2 powerline connectivity. Both devices are available in EU and US plug versions.

By leveraging MaxLinear’s industry-leading powerline technology, Zinwell can offer a solution that delivers a robust whole-home Wi-Fi experience while avoiding the problems often found in other Wi-Fi mesh solutions (wireless signals blocked by walls, interference from neighbor wireless networks, unpredictable latency). Because powerline technology is not affected by walls or congested wireless spectrum, consumers experience a high-performance Wi-Fi service that meets the requirements of 4K and 8K IP video, online multi-player gaming and cloud-based file sharing. Service providers see a reduction in truck rolls and customer complaints, while simultaneously increasing their remote diagnostic and proactive management capabilities.

All Zinwell home-networking products based on MaxLinear Wave-2 technology are fully compliant with the latest version of the ITU-T standard, and are certified according to FCC, UL and EN50561. All products support IPv6, remote firmware upgrades, 8-level QoS, IGMP snooping for multicast IPTV, web-based management, AES-128 encryption and VLANs. A carrier-grade version which includes TR-069 remote management is also available.

“Zinwell is one of the leading providers of networking products for the consumer and service provider market, with several years of experience building powerline products,” said Will Torgerson, Vice President & General Manager of the Broadband Group for MaxLinear. “We are excited that Zinwell has chosen our Wave-2 technology to power their new generation of home-networking products.”

“MaxLinear’s Wave-2 powerline technology provides the fastest data rates in the industry, so it was an easy decision for us to select it to power our newest home-networking products,” said Mark Yang, Digital Product BU Head at Zinwell. “Using our extenders and adapters, carriers can deliver on their promise of gigabit broadband anywhere in the home, without any of the performance and latency problems associated with other Wi-Fi mesh solutions in the market.”
