Solving the WLAN Problems of Tomorrow, Today
The ZyXEL NWA5120 Series 802.11 a/b/g/n Unified Access Point is a highly future-proof WLAN solution perfect for growing business, hospitality and education environments. With a 2-in-1 standalone/managed AP design, users can initially use it as a standalone AP, and convert it to a controller-managed AP when Wi-Fi demand grows. The Series is designed with industry-leading technology to provide trouble-free wireless quality to lower IT overhead. The embedded antennas and signal output are fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and maximum signal coverage. It also supports such features as dynamic channel selection, load balancing and pre-authentication for seamless roaming and a superb Wi-Fi experience.
Ceiling-mount design blends into environments
Different from traditional business routers, the slick "smoke detector" ceiling-mount design of ZyXEL NWA5120 Series provides better coverage and performance. The NWA5120 Series is a PoE AP with a multifunction design that solves all problems by offering internal as well as external antennas to enhance wireless performance and to eliminate coverage dead spots. Moreover, the signal outputs have been fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and excellent signal coverage especially for hospitality and education environments.
The ZyXEL NWA5120 Series has been designed with plenum rating and made of non-toxic materials without hazardous emission - the safe design makes it more suitable for public indoor wireless deployments.
Effortless conversion from standalone to centrally-managed
The ZyXEL NWA5120 Series Unified APs can be configured as a fully functional standalone AP and also capable to work with Wireless LAN Controller to form a robust controller-based WLAN solution with centralized management when Wi-Fi demand grows, as well as auto AP provisioning over both LAN and WAN connections. After being installed and powered on, the APs automatically look for the Wireless LAN Controller and establish connections. Utilizing the CAPWAP protocol, connections can be established between the controller and APs without needing to change the existing LAN infrastructure.
Easy to RF planning with the same 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signal coverage (NWA5123-NI)
As more and more mobile or laptop devices support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, users can choose 5 GHz as the first priority for default searching and balance heavy network loading with the 2.4 GHz band, besides, to have always on and stable connection become one of the essential elements of Wi-Fi network.
The ZyXEL NWA5123-NI 802.11 a/b/g/n Dual-Radio Unified AP consists of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band radio to match the concurrent Wi-Fi services with either frequency.
The higher frequency of the 5 GHz band provides a shorter signal range compared to the 2.4 GHz band with the same transmit output power. The NWA5123-NI consist of high 5 GHz transmit output power can boost the 5 GHz signal range, providing signal coverage equal to the 2.4 GHz wireless network. Therefore, the complexity of deployment can be considerably reduced.
Continuous wireless services for better reliability and network quality
The ZyXEL NWA5120 Series 802.11n PoE AP features coverage-enhancing 11n technologies such as TX Beamforming, LDPC and MLD to eliminate issues of dead spots and inefficient coverage. With MLD, the NWA5120 Series boosts the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) to 3 dB for more stable wireless services and better performance. Meanwhile, TX Beamforming also eliminates dead spots by expanding the coverage with continuous, dynamic changing of signal phases. With non-stop wireless services, the NWA5120 Series provides reliable network connectivity for better business productivity.
