ZyXEL Enables Wireless Coverage Beyond

Superior Wireless Coverage Enabled by Multifunction Ceiling-Mount Access Points

April 19, 2011; Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet products and solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications and service providers to small and medium-sized businesses and home users, today launches a multiple functioning, wireless, access point product – NWA1121-N1, the most ideal device for large interior wireless deployments. Designed with combinational leading-edge wireless technologies, as well as a smooth-shaped housing with hidden antennas, the ceiling-mount wireless Access Point delivers high performance, extensive wireless coverage and will blend in tastefully with any space when being mounted on ceilings. It is the best choice for deployment, to fulfill your wireless connectivity requirements at large premises, such as hotels, academic institutions, shopping arcades, indoor playgrounds, and the like.

To overcome a few problems, such as dead spots and coverage inefficiencies that greatly diminish the wireless connection’s quality, the NWA1121-N1 Access Point adopts, not only Mainstream 802.11n Wireless Technology, it also boasts more enhancing features, such as TX Beamforming, LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check), and MLD (Multicast Listener Discovery). Empowered by these multiple, sophisticated features, ZyXEL’s NWA1121-N1 Access Point ensures not only high transmission speed of up to 300Mbps, it also enjoys impressive stability and reliability, as well as wider coverage that reaches out farther by another 50%. Such a combination of these dynamic performances mark a breakthrough for wireless connectivity and provide optimal advantages, particularly for multi-accessing requirements, such as hotel guests at different spots, customers in a shopping arcade, or professors and students, who need ubiquitous connectivity in all campus buildings for their tutorials and studies. Moreover, in compliance with 802.3af PoE (Power of Ethernet) standards, the Access Point makes installation much more cost-effective – resulting from the savings gained by having no electrical wiring costs to pay for, as well as costly manpower hours being wasted.

With foresight to the steadily growing popularity of IPv6, the NWA1121-N1 WLAN Access Point enables enterprise customers to adapt to the new Internet Protocol effortlessly and without interruption.. Designed with dual-stack architecture that supports the coexistence of both IPv4 and IPv6, the Access Point ensures users a hassle-free transition period and advanced preparation for future implementation needs.

One more advantage is the design of eight SSIDs (Service Set Identification) that help administrators effectively designate traffic for different user groups, based on application services. To ensure all comprehensive application needs are met, while being a simple, yet effective management tool for administrators, there are up to eight SSIDs offered to map the Virtual LAN security level settings to classify users with different traffic. This function allows businesses to employ consistent user management with the wireless edge.  

With a commitment to a greener and safer environment, the NWA1121-N1 adopts a Plenum-rated LOSH material (Low-Smoke Zero Halogen). The material has been proven non-toxic and environmentally-safe, without any hazardous vapor emissions. This sensible and reliable design makes the Wireless Access Point suitable for all public wireless deployments.
