About Yamaha's network devices
Yamaha developed communication LSIs and ISDN communication devices based on the advanced digital signal technology that it cultivated for digital musical instruments, and had entered the Japanese router market in 1995. Since then, Yamaha has been supplying a number of products that focus on business-use routers, taking the lead in incorporating advanced technologies such as the VPN and IPv6 for the past 18 years, and driving the shift of networks for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) into broadband environments. Cumulative shipment of these products has reached 2.4 million units, earning Yamaha the No. 1 market share position of enterprise routers in Japan(*).
Following the product delivery in Japan and China, Yamaha aims to establish stable corporate networks across SME offices in Thailand and Malaysia by providing these countries with their reliable enterprise VPN router, RTX810. Additionally, Yamaha will promote simple and efficient network settings and management through various functions, including visualization of LANs, which have achieved popularity in Japan's market, in the course of the sale of smart L2 switches, SWX2200-8G and SWX2200-24G.
The sale of these products will facilitate the management and settings across all offices in Japan, China, Thailand, and Malaysia by using the same Yamaha network products, enabling the creation and implementation of highly-reliable networks.
