ZyXEL WAC6553D-E overview

  • 1Description

The WAC6553D-E 802.11ac Dual Radio External Antenna 3x3 Outdoor Access Point from ZyXEL offers more than 700 optimized signal patterns. The ZyXEL smart antenna continuously calculates the suitable physical-layer path for each individual client. This feature not only provides the signal by shaping to various patterns, it also mitigates interference from other wireless clients.

The access point smart antenna allows you to migrate from wireless n to wireless ac without re-configuring or adding additional APs to a network. The smart antenna adjusts wireless patterns, doubling performance with stronger signals to increase sensitivity and improve interference resistance. In addition, advanced Wi-Fi features load balancing and smart-client steering that ensure a smooth, consistent, and uninterrupted wireless access experience.

With the ZyXEL APFlex feature, the access point is easy to install. While deploying large groups of access points with AP controllers in place, APFlex enables streamline and hassle-free installation, simple switching between Managed/Standalone AP modes and automatic integration of APs into the network environment. When operating, DCS (Dynamic Channel Selection) balances the AP channels to reduce signal interference. Furthermore, the universal bracket allows for flexible ceiling track mounting in three simple steps, eliminating the need for tools. The bracket width adjusts to fit a variety of ceiling track configurations, adapting to any building’s structure.

ZyXEL Smart Antenna
The ZyXEL smart antenna continuously applies an algorithm to provide the signal. The smart antenna mitigates RF interference over more than 700 optimized patterns for each individual client. Even in high-density environments like airports, classrooms, and other crowded venues, the smart antenna delivers remarkable performance.
Tool-less Installation
The WAC6553D-E features a mounting bracket design that makes installation easy. Mounting can be completed in just three simple steps without the need for tools. The adjustable-width of bracket is suitable for a wide range of ceiling track configurations.
ZyXEL APFlex includes zero-touch AP mode changing and automatic IP configuration, allowing IT administrators to skip these two repetitive non-value pre-configurations, and focus more on critical configuration tasks.
ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer
ZWO (ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer) is a software tool that simplifies initial AP planning, adjustment during deployment, and after-sale maintenance of a wireless network.
WPA2 Enterprise
Certified with industrial-strength WPA2 enterprise protection and support for a wide range of EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) types. Access Points can be seamlessly integrated with deployed corporate RADIUS servers.
Wireless L2 Isolation
The wireless Layer-2 isolation protects private networks among client users by allowing you to access the shared devices without entering the rest of a private network for enhanced security. In addition, intra-BSS blocking prevents different Wi-Fi clients associated with the same AP from seeing each other and each other's data.
ZON Utility
ZON (ZyXEL One Network) utility allows administrators to assign IP addresses to multiple access points through just one platform. Administrators can avoid the complication of logging onto each AP to change the default IP addresses before physical installation.
Wireless Mesh is an array of access points automatically forming dynamic wireless links. 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.
ZyXEL AP Configurator
ZAC (ZyXEL AP Configurator) builds templates that allow users to copy one profile to several access points, allowing batch firmware upgrades and profile backups, significantly reducing configuration time and effort.
