ZyXEL Debuts Professional Grade 802.11ac PoE Wireless Access Point

Ceiling-Mountable Device Boasts Multiple Operating Modes for Businesses

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today introduced its NWA1123-AC, a dual band, 802.11ac access point aimed at businesses requiring high performance wireless network with flexible installation option.

"Businesses including healthcare, hospitality and education institutions are upgrading their wireless infrastructure to keep up with the relentless demand for mobility," said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "With our latest 802.11ac Access Point, ZyXEL has afforded these businesses and solution providers servicing them, with a device that will future-proof this effort and secure their investment."

The ZyXEL NWA1123-AC comes loaded with enterprise-class features including:

  • 802.11ac technology offers up to three times the speed and throughput compared to 11n, while a dual-radio design that efficiently supports existing 11n clients, helps ease transition to an all 11ac network.
  • Equipped with an enhanced antenna system embedded within the circular-shaped device, the unobtrusive NWA1123-AC blends into any business environment while offering optimal, multidirectional coverage
  • Finely-tuned 5GHz radio, in addition to a 2.4GHz radio, that boosts the range of the less-congested 5GHz frequency, enabling the NWA1123-AC to offer both coverage and speed
  • Hazard safety features like use of non-toxic casing material to prevent hazardous vapor emission in case of fire; this is especially important to public venues such as offices, hotels and schools.
  • Multiple operating modes support, enabling it to function as a stand-alone access point, a wireless client, and as a repeater/root-AP. The wireless client mode enables remote office peripherals including printers or fax machines to connect to the network. The device also extends Wi-Fi services utilizing the repeater or root-AP mode to prevent excessive cable clutter.

The NWA1123-AC is a great choice for small businesses; its practical features -- designed for business deployments -- include multiple SSID, solid WPA2 security, Layer-2 isolation and 802.1 x radius authentication. All these practical features along with the high-performance RF design make the NWA1123-AC the best solution for building flexible Wi-Fi networks in small businesses.

Pricing and Availability

ZyXEL NWA1123-AC is available now, through all ZyXEL authorized partners for a MSRP of $199.
