ANAHEIM, Calif.-Zyxel Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access and connected home products, today announced the launch of Nebula, a fully cloud-based network infrastructure solution. The Nebula product line, which includes high-performance wireless access points, security gateways, and managed Gigabit Ethernet switches, will enable organizations to deploy multiple networks and centrally monitor, manage and maintain them via a single, intuitive dashboard.

Ideal for deployment by businesses and organizations with multiple locations across the country or around the world, Nebula enables IT administrators to securely monitor and manage the networks at all of their locations in real-time from a single dashboard, centralizing the IT function and eliminating the requirement for highly-trained IT staff at branch locations.

For resellers and managed service providers (MSPs), Nebula enables them to deploy and centrally manage of multiple networks for multiple customers around the city or even across the country. The ability to monitor and manage networks in real-time from anywhere via a single website can enable resellers and MSPs to establish new service offerings and create new revenue opportunities.

  • Easily Manage Multiple Independent Networks – Ideal for resellers and MSPs, Nebula allows on-demand management of multiple sites and makes it easy to replicate multi-site configurations. The system gives resellers and MSPs the ability to continuously monitor the network performance and proactively identify network issues even before their customers are aware, ensuring business continuity and significantly shortening the network troubleshooting and repair process. 
  • Intuitive, Browser-based Network Management – The Nebula Control Center provides real-time visibility and metrics for all of the organization’s Nebula-based networks.

  • Easy Configuration – Using the iOS and Android Nebula Mobile App, Nebula devices can be easily installed and registered using QR codes, enabling them to be automatically discovered through the Cloud. This removes the need for on-site technical expertise when deploying hardware, significantly reducing the costly labor expenses of traditional network deployments.
