ZyXEL offers Wireless LAN Optimizer tool as a free download to help partners drive Wi-Fi Controller and Access Point sales

Uptake of the recently released NXC2500 gateway and NWA5100 ‘smoke detector’ access points exceed expectations as more users look to upgrade their wireless networks

1.10.2013

ZyXEL Communications, a leading supplier of networking and communications solutions, is offering partners its new Wireless LAN Optimizer planning tool as a free download, helping them to deliver more value to customers and fuel sales of the company’s latest Wi-Fi controller and access points. 

The ZyXEL Wireless LAN Optimizer tool enables resellers to identify the best locations to position wireless access points when the company’s NXC2500 Wireless controller – which is designed for SMBs with support for up to eight access points – is being deployed. ZyXEL has seen higher than expected sales of this product during the first few weeks of its availability, suggesting that there is much greater potential for resellers to drive wireless controller sales in the SMB market. 

The open availability of the tool presents a good opportunity to resellers, says Martin Bratičák, Head of Channel CEE at ZyXEL. “Our Wireless LAN Optimizer tool allows ZyXEL partners to offer a really useful added-value service to their customers and in doing so, set themselves apart from the competition. It is very simple to use and will help them to drive sales of both the NXC2500 and our popular ‘smoke-detector’ style NWA5100 Series access points, both of which are selling well throughout the European region.”

With more users wanting to connect more devices to Wi-Fi, more often, there is a growing need for organisations to extend wireless coverage. ZyXEL has seen brisk sales of the NXC2500 and NWA5100 Series since they first became available in the spring. 

“There is a growing awareness of the need to offer wider coverage, but also to ensure that guest access and traffic levels can be properly managed. The NXC2500 is proving to be a popular choice with businesses, hotels, bars, clubs, schools, health centres and other operations of a similar size, where there is a need to provide more extensive coverage and ensure that bandwidth is being allocated and used appropriately. Potential in the SMB market is enormous”, says Bratičák. 

Once downloaded and run on a connected PC, the WiFi Optimizer tool auto-senses the NXC2500 and access points on the wireless LAN. It collects information about performance, interference and conflicts, which the reseller can view and analyse. Using this data, partners can adjust and fine-tune the positioning and set-up of access points to ensure all users experience optimum wireless reception and performance. ZyXEL’s expert engineers are always available to provide technical assistance, should resellers require it. 

The NXC2500 controller is designed to meet the needs of smaller organisations. While the standard version supports up to eight access points, it can easily be upgraded to support up to 24 APs, giving customers a seamless growth path and solid investment protection. It also comes with comprehensive security features, including a built-in RADIUS server. 

The ZyXEL NWA5100 Series of ceiling-mountable APs are specifically designed for use with the NXC2500. Once installed, they are similar in appearance to a normal smoke-detector, so they are ideal for use in public places. Like all ZyXEL wireless products and switches, the NXC2500 and the NWA5100 Series access points come with a lifetime warranty, so return-on-investment is guaranteed.
