Product Description

Zyxel NWA5121-N - Unified Wireless-N Access Point (300Mbps)

Ceiling-mount design blends into environments
Different from traditional business routers, the slick "smoke detector" ceiling-mount design of ZyXEL NWA5121-N provides better coverage and performance. The ZyXEL NWA5121-N is a PoE AP with a multifunction design that solves all problems by offering internal as well as external antennas to enhance wireless performance and to eliminate coverage dead spots.
This ZyXEL NWA5121-N's signal outputs has been fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and excellent signal coverage especially for hospitality and education environments.The ZyXEL NWA5121-N has been designed with plenum rating and made of non-toxic materials without hazardous emission - the safe design makes it more suitable for public indoor wireless deployments.
Effortless conversion from standalone to centrally-managed
The ZyXEL NWA5121-N Unified APs can be configured as a fully functional standalone AP and also capable to work with Wireless LAN Controller to form a robust controller-based WLAN solution with centralised management when Wi-Fi demand grows, as well as auto AP provisioning over both LAN and WAN connections. After being installed and powered on, the APs automatically look for the Wireless LAN Controller and establish connections. Utilising the CAPWAP protocol, connections can be established between the controller and APs without needing to change the existing LAN infrastructure.
Continuous wireless services for better reliability and network quality
The ZyXEL NWA5121-N 802.11n PoE AP features coverage-enhancing 11n technologies such as TX Beam forming, LDPC and MLD to eliminate issues of dead spots and inefficient coverage. With MLD, the ZyXEL NWA5121-N boosts the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) to 3 dB for more stable wireless services and better performance. Meanwhile, TX Beam forming also eliminates dead spots by expanding the coverage with continuous, dynamic changing of signal phases. With non-stop wireless services, the ZyXEL NWA5121-N provides reliable network connectivity for better business productivity.
