Product Description

ZYXEL WAC500 Dual Band IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 1.17 Gbit/s Wireless Access Point


ZYXEL WAC500 Dual Band IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 1.17 Gbit/s Wireless Access Point - 2.40 GHz, 5 GHz - MIMO Technology - 1 x Network (RJ-45) - Gigabit Ethernet - Ceiling Mountable The Zyxel WAC500 802.11ac Wave 2 Dual-Radio Unified Access Point is a highly future-proof WLAN solution perfect for growing business, hospitality and education environments. With a 3-in-1 standalone/controller/cloudmanaged design, users can initially use it as a standalone AP, and convert it to a controller-managed or Nebula cloud-managed AP when WiFi demand grows. The WAC500 is designed with industry-leading technology to provide trouble-free wireless quality to lower IT overhead. The embedded antennas and signal output are fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and maximum signal coverage. It also supports such features as dynamic channel selection, load balancing and pre-authentication for superb WiFi experience.

Benefits

Ceiling-mount design blends into environments

Different from traditional business routers, low-profile ceiling-mount design of Zyxel WAC500 provides better coverage and performance. The WAC500 is a PoE AP with a multifunction design that solves all problems by offering an advanced antenna design to enhance wireless performance and to eliminate coverage dead spots. Moreover, the signal outputs have been fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and excellent signal coverage especially for hospitality and education environments.

The Zyxel WAC500 is constructed from non-toxic casing materials, making it safe to install in plenum areas, as it won't release hazardous vapor emissions in the event of a fire. This is life-critical issue, particularly when deploying in public venues such as offices, hotels, and schools.

NebulaFlex Pro-simply manage it your way!

The NebulaFlex Pro provides extended flexibility, allowing users to easily switch among standalone, on-promises controller or our intuitive NCC (Nebula Control Center) modes any time according to your needs without additional cost while protecting wireless technology investments. The privilege of one-year professional pack you can get once upon registration on Nebula includes wireless health, sitewide topology, 365-day statistics on the devices and clients monitoring along with more upcoming advanced features on NCC and its App.

Zyxel one network experience

Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, Zyxel one network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our 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. Zyxel one network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to WiFi AP and to Gateway.

Ultra-fast Gigabit WiFi experience

Featuring the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the WAC500 not only provides data rates of up to 1200 Mbps, but also optimizes signal with its advanced antenna design to bring the best user experience through a higher number of parallel video data streams for minimized latency on the network. Additionally, the concurrent dual-band support enables WAC500 to satisfy clients using both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz at the same time and is perfect for high-density applications such as hospitality, education and business.
