Product Description

Zyxel Wac6503d-s 802.11ac 3x3 Smart Antenna Ap

Breakthrough Smart Antenna technology for any environment
The WAC6500 Series of 802.11ac APs delivers industry leading performance,thanks in part to its innovative Smart Antenna design. Featuring more than 700 optimized antenna patterns,the ZyXEL Smart Antenna continuously calculates the ideal physical-layer path for each individual client. This feature not only offers the best possible signal by shaping to various patterns,but it also mitigates interference from other wireless clients. The WAC6500 Series's ultra-fast capabilities makes it perfect for delivering premium performance in interference-laden environments,such as conference rooms,airports,educational facilities and other high-density venues. And the series' enhanced adaptability further simplifies one-to-one AP replacement.

Best-in-class coverage and performance
In a Wi-Fi market crowded with 802.11ac APs,the WAC6500 Series stands out with regard to performance and coverage due to its unique RF design. The AP's three-stream hardware configuration provides power of up to 30 dBm while providing unequaled receive sensitivity as low as -102 dBm. The ZyXEL Smart Antenna doubles the WAC6500 Series' performance over conventional internal antennas,and performs three times (3x) better than legacy 802.11n APs.

Easy and instant deployment with APFlex,DCS,and tool-less bracket design
ZyXEL APFlex eases installation by resolving the managed/standalone AP mode configuration,automatically integrating into the network environment with or without Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP),eliminating the need for pre-installation preparation. Other helpful features include Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS),avoid the interference of co-channel and overlapping channel at initialization. In addition to software solutions,the WAC6500 Series' simplifies installation through creative design features. For example,the universal and tool-less bracket design allows for flexible ceiling track mounting without the need for special tools. From software to hardware,the WAC6500 Series makes setup and operation fast and simple.

Efficient and reliable Wi-Fi network
The WAC6500 Series ensures users get the best possible overall network performance by utilizing load balancing and client steering. Load balancing allows administrators to set limits on network traffic and the number of clients associated with each AP. Client steering monitors the capabilities of each wireless client and steers them to the less congested band and better signal AP. When it comes to deployments in challenging cabling locations,wireless mesh networks help extend Wi-Fi coverage. ZyXEL's proprietary ZyMesh creates reliable and resilient mesh links instantly. Yet the configuration is intuitive and centralized manageable on NXC controller. ZyMesh improves network reliability through true wireless connectivity with repeater APs selecting multiple routes to provide backup and failover for uninterrupted service. Together,these three technologies provide the WAC6500 Series with unbeatable efficiency and reliability.
