ZyXEL today announced the launch of the NWA5123-AC 802.11ac Dual-Radio Unified Access Point. Designed to function as either a standalone or managed solution, the new enterprise-class access point is ideal for growing businesses, hospitality, and education environments.
The plenum-rated NWA5123-AC, which features an unobtrusive smoke detector ceiling mount design and is PoE-capable for easy deployment, can be configured as a fully-functional standalone device or can be centrally managed by a WLAN controller. The embedded internal antenna array enhances wireless performance and eliminates coverage dead spots, while features such as Dynamic Channel Selection (NCS), load balancing and Smart Client Steering optimize capacity and interference management making the access point an ideal solution for high-density environments such as smart classrooms, office buildings, and hotels.
“Growing businesses need a wireless LAN infrastructure that delivers a critical balance of performance, scalability, reliability, and affordability, to address their ever-changing network access and bandwidth requirements,” stated Shawn Rogers, Market Development Manager at ZyXEL. “Our new NWA5123-AC provides users with an enterprise-class WLAN solution that can be quickly and easily scaled from one or two standalone access points in a small office environment to a complete centrally-managed solution for midsize and larger environments. Using our ZyXEL One Network, the network can be quickly expanded without extensive IT experience making this an ideal solution for even the smallest of businesses.”
