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. In Thailand and Malaysia, products will be sold through local
distributors.

Yamaha plans to gain a better understanding of the network requirements of
products and services in these two countries as it continues to develop the
business in neighboring countries and expanding its product and service
portfolios.
