Dallas, Apr 26, 2006, Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices LLC today announced availability of the Siemens 5881 Broadband Security Router and Siemens 5883 Wireless Broadband Security Router. Both devices enable service providers to offer SMB subscribers the power of a flexible, secure, high-availability enterprise network at a price made for the SMB budget.
