Left Zyxel

Recently I've left Zyxel where I worked for three years on a Linux-based home class router (CPE). It was a nice place to where I've met wonderful friends and learned a lot. It was also encouraging and interesting work.

I still have a few ideas for the CPE market that are not completely supported in current developments of various competitors. Things like modern web-2.0 dynamic UI, better error reporting, overall performance optimization, testing, centralized management and so on promise a lot for a vendor that will be able to handle such a suprisingly complicated product like CPE. Cell phones are much more active market comparing to routers, although the class of home devices seems to be no less important then cell phone one. For example I amazed by overall T-Mobile G1 quality and haven't seen anything comparable on router's market. Probalby US market is different though. Recent future with 4G, extensibility and wideband access everywhere promise a lot.

Let's hope one day there will be a team that could implement it. Also I hope to buy a router made by me very soon.
