Centralized management and provision
With demand for Internet connection of mobile devices growing rapidly, high scalability WLAN and centralized management become necessary for wireless device deployments. The Zyxel NXC5500 WLAN controller has great scalability to manage up to 512 APs centrally. The NXC5500 utilizes CAPWAP protocol to minimize issues of Wi-Fi deployments that are new, or belong to extension programs on top of the existing networks.
Adaptive and resilient Wi-Fi deployments
The Zyxel NXC5500 features with ZyMesh to solve the complex cable deployments when extending Wi-Fi coverage, and provide high resilience Wi-Fi service with multiple route selections for each repeater APs. In the past, administrators had to assign a channel and MAC addresses in each AP while setting up a WDS link to extend Wi-Fi service; now they can make auto provision and manage easily.
WLAN optimization and enhanced RF management
All wireless networks face a major challenge: ensuring Wi-Fi clients get service levels they’d need. Therefore, there are several kinds of Wi-Fi clients exist on the network, and these users tend to make their own connectivity and roaming decisions. The NXC5500 can monitor the capabilities of each wireless client and steer the client to the best radio on the best AP by band select and signal threshold. Also, the NXC5500 can detect status of neighbor AP and adjust output power automatically to ensure a non-stop Wi-Fi service.
Secured wireless edge and access management
The NXC5500 features with diversified Wi-Fi security features and comprehensive access control to help enterprises and businesses address the wireless security issues that arise with BYOD.
