Enhanced Coverage

The ZyXEL NWA1123-AC is a standard-based, SNMP-managed PoE Access Point (AP) that features the advanced 802.11ac technology. The smoke detector look exterior makes the NWA1123-AC perfect for indoor ceiling-mount installation; with the optimized antennas built-in, its design solves the common interference issue in ceiling-mount deployments. The NWA1123-AC supports multiple operating modes, such as wireless client and repeater, which make it an ideal, flexible solution for small business, hotels and school environments.

Ceiling Mount Design

Different from traditional business wireless APs struggling between performance and environment cohesion, the ZyXEL NWA1123-AC features embedded antennas and ceiling-mount capability without sacrificing wireless performance. In typical ceiling-mount installations, the access points with external antennas are mostly hidden in the plenum area; to prevent performance degradation, the antennas usually stick out of the ceiling-messy for indoor deployments. The smoke detector-style exterior of ZyXEL NWA1123-AC is suitable for ceiling installation that prevents equipment theft. Although the NWA1123-AC uses built-in antennas, it outperforms APs with internal antennas and blends into the interior better as well.

In addition, the ZyXEL NWA1123-AC adopts non-toxic casing material, since it's usually placed in plenum areas, to prevent hazardous vapor emission in case of fire; this is especially important to public venues such as offices, hotels and schools.

ZyXEL ONE Network Experience

Aiming for relieving customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, ZyXEL ONE Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing customers to focus on the business priorities. ZyXEL ONE Network presents an easy-to-use tool, ZyXEL ONE Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. ZyXEL Smart Connect allows ZyXEL networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling.

High-Density with High-Quality User Experience

It's now common for a user to carry two or more devices that use different Wi-Fi bands; this challenges many places that still use legacy Wi-Fi AP with insufficient capability to serve the high-bandwidth devices. Both NWA1123-AC is compatible with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands to support more users at the same time. Featuring the latest IEEE 802.11ac technology, including the expanded channel binding of 80 MHz and the highest 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation), the NWA1123-AC delivers data speeds of up to 3 times faster. This brings the best user experience through higher number of parallel video data streams for minimized latency on the network.

Easy RF Planning with Same 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Signal Coverage

Most Wi-Fi devices around us operate in the crowded 2.4 GHz band where only three non-overlapping channels can be used for deployments, and complaints for the unsatisfactory network performance are not uncommon. As many recent mobile or laptop devices support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, users tend to choose the 5 GHz band as their first priority; as a result, serving the 5 GHz devices becomes more important than before. With a fine-tuned 5 GHz radio mechanism that boosts performance at the frequency, the coverage of the NWA1123-AC becomes comparable to the 2.4 GHz band to reduce the complexity of deployments.

Multi-Operation Flexibility

The NWA1123-AC PoE Access Point supports multiple operating modes including stand-alone access point, wireless client and repeater/root-AP mode. The wireless client mode enables office peripherals like printers or fax machines to connect to the network in case they are located in places difficult for cabling. The NWA1123-AC also extends Wi-Fi services utilizing the repeater or root-AP mode to prevent excessive cable constructions. The NWA1123-AC comes with a variety of practical features designed for business deployments: multiple SSID, solid Wi-Fi security of WPA2 Enterprise, Layer-2 isolation and 802.1 x radius authentication.
