Alternative to UniFi! Everyone can have the fastest WiFi

An alternative to UniFi, Zyxel’s series of Wi-Fi 6 access points is enjoying a tremendous success in the market.

Zyxel has launched a brand new series of access points supporting the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard in response to the ever-growing demand of businesses and organisations for fast wireless data transmission and for the connectivity of more and more clients. The new interior access points NWA50AX and NWA90AX and the exterior access point NWA55AXE have become a major sales success – no doubt also due to the highly affordable price compared to their far more expensive competitors.

Another reason the new Zyxel access points have fast become a bestseller is that they make the modern Wi-Fi 6 (the 802.11ax standard) wireless technology available to a much wider range of users. All that is needed to upgrade to the advanced wireless standard is to simply replace the existing access points with new ones while keeping the current network cables. Zyxel also offers a solution for installations where Power over Ethernet (PoE) is not an option. For these scenarios, each of the new Wi-Fi 6 access points comes with a suitable power adapter (the NWA50AX and NWA90AX models) or a PoE injector (the NWA55AXE model designed for outdoor installation). With all of their parameters, these access points are an alternative to UniFi.

Cloud network management

Another outstanding feature of the new Zyxel access points NWA50AX, NWA90AX and NWA55AXE is the ability to manage them centrally through the Nebula cloud service. This allows network administrators to monitor their organisation’s entire wireless network and configure each of the access points at any time and from anywhere – simply through a web browser or our application for smartphones and tablets.

The process of adding new access points to the network has also been simplified as much as possible. All you need to do is scan the QR code on the device with a smartphone for the device to automatically and quickly take over the wireless network settings from the previously installed access points. Fully sufficient for everyday management of access points and wireless networks, the basic version of the Nebula cloud service is available free of charge, offering the benefits of managing the new Zyxel access points in the cloud without any additional license fees.

Fast Wi-Fi both indoors and outdoors

Featuring discreet and compact design, the NWA50AX and NWA90AX access points provide reliable coverage indoors and connectivity for a large number of clients. The only difference between them is that the higher NWA90AX model has additional firmware functions for managing extensive business networks. Besides these two devices, the new series also includes the NWA55AXE outdoor model that features IP55 protection from dust and water ingress and is designed to cover car parks, courtyards, gardens and other outdoor areas. The Zyxel NWA55AXE access point is also perfect for creating inter-building wireless connectivity using the Zyxel Smart Mesh technology.

Key features of the new Zyxel access points:

  • Support for the Wi-Fi 6 standard (IEEE802.11ax/ac/n/g/b/a)
  • Throughput up to 575 Mb/s in the 2.4 GHz band and 1200 Mb/s in the 5 GHz band
  • Support for up to 8 separate Wi-Fi networks with different SSID’s
  • The latest WPA3-PSK encryption standard
  • Both local and cloud management using the Nebula platform
  • Easy to install and configure
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)

To support sales, Zyxel has prepared a marketing campaign called “An alternative to UniFi” featuring a new corporate visual material and “Just Connect” philosophy. The campaign highlights the ease of transition to the advanced Wi-Fi 6 standard, streamlined management of the new access points through the Nebula cloud service and the price that is significantly lower than that of competing products.
