ZyXEL NWA5123-AC overview

  • 1Description

With a compact, ceiling-mount design, the NWA5123-AC IEEE 802.11 ac Dual-Radio Unified Access Point from ZyXEL can be installed in a variety of locations including schools, hotels, and office buildings. Inside the enclosure you will find two internal transmit and two receive antennas designed to provide enhanced coverage on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. In addition to dual-band functionality, this access point features 802.11ac connectivity supporting a maximum data transfer rate of 866 Mb/s. Once configured, your wireless network can be secured using WEP/WPA/WPA2-PSK, and WPA/WPA2-enterprise encryption standards.

Ultra-Fast Speed

NWA5123-AC is a 2x2 802.11ac access point (AP) with Gigabit Wi-Fi functionality. The unit's simultaneous dual-band support meets the growing BYOD demands to support more clients with equal signal coverage in both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. There's no latency to transmit high-bandwidth data such as video and voice streaming.

WPA2 Enterprise

The NWA5123-AC features WPA2 enterprise protection and supports a wide range of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. It can be integrated with deployed corporate RADIUS servers.


The Wireless Mesh is an array of access points that form dynamic wireless links automatically. Built on this foundation of mesh networking, ZyMesh is ZyXEL's proprietary protocol for creating wireless mesh links for easy configuration, optimized management, and enhanced reliability.

Wireless Layer-2 Isolation

The Layer-2 isolation protects private networks among client users, allowing users to access their shared devices without entering the rest of a private network for enhanced security. In addition, the intra-BSS blocking prevents different Wi-Fi clients associated with the same AP from seeing each other and each other's data.

ZyXEL AP Configurator

The ZyXEL AP Configurator (ZAC) builds templates that allow users to copy one profile to several APs, allowing batch firmware upgrades and profile backups in three easy steps to significantly reduce configuration time and effort.

Zyxel One Network Utility

To streamline the management process, the NWA5120 series comes with the Zyxel one network (ZON) utility, allowing administrators to assign IP addresses to multiple APs through just one platform. Administrators can avoid the hassle of logging into each AP to change the default IP addresses before physical installation.


ZyXEL APFlex includes Zero-touch AP mode changing and automatic IP configuration functions. The Zero-touch AP mode setting detects if there is an existing ZyXEL controller to choose standalone or managed mode accordingly. Automatic IP configuration removes manual configuration and allows the AP to set itself to fixed or dynamic IP address automatically. Thanks to these two features, IT administrators can skip two critical settings that had to be handled manually on legacy products.

ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer

The ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer (ZWO) provides a powerful tool for centralized management covering initial planning, adjustment during deployment, and maintenance of an AP network. Architects can simulate AP deployment on a map displaying the number of APs needed. During deployment, ZWO also maps actual signal coverage for architects to adjust their AP locations or configurations. Network administrators can access key performance details from ZWO, including channel in use, transmit retry rate, and frame error rate, as well as the devices on the environment map. ZWO's user-friendly presentation saves time and facilitates quick response to the network problems.
