Taiwanese home-networking equipment maker Zyxel is taking its communications gear on the road to show Thais exactly what a plugged-in home can be like.
Zyxel Thailand Managing Director Sitthicheep Somkiat was behind the wheel when the Zyxel Z-Home pulled into Central Festival Pattaya Beach July 8. The recreational vehicle was loaded bumper to bumper with a full slate of communications technology, from wireless modems and routers to home security systems.
