Faster WiFi 6 that’s ideal for SMBs and prosumers
The new Pro versions of the Zyxel NWA 50AX and NWA90AX access points offer a significant uplift in performance, both for WiFi users and on the network connection, as Patrick Hirscher, EMEA Wireless Market Development Manager at Zyxel, explains.
It always pleasing when you get something right. When you manage to deliver a great service and deliver exactly the right product or service to customers at the right time, it’s very satisfying. That’s how we have been feeling about our NWA50AX and NWA90AX WiFi 6 access points since they were released in the EMEA region just over a year ago.
They have provided (and continue to provide) a simple, uncomplicated solution to the everyday needs of SMBs and prosumers. They provide all the essential features and capabilities you need and will support up to four wireless networks. They also can also be managed locally or through our cloud-based management platform, Nebula. This means you – or your MSP – can monitor and manage and even install the devices remotely. Even someone that is not at all technical could perform this task. With Zyxel, you can just connect and go.
By the way – just in case you are wondering – the difference between them is simply that, with the NWA90AX, you get additional features, such as a captive portal for guest access and WPA Enterprise authentication.
Otherwise, these two devices are almost identical – and importantly, both access points provide transmission on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, which gives you added range and flexibility. And both devices also support transmission speeds of up to 1800 Mbps – which has been the standard maximum theoretical bandwidth for WiFi 6. They also both have a 1 Gbps uplink for connection to a wired network.
But of course, customer needs continue to grow, and technology never stands still. It’s really important that we make use of new developments when they come along. That’s why we are now launching new versions of both these popular access points – the NWA50AX Pro and NWA90AX Pro – that provide WiFi speeds of up to 3000 Gbps and come with a 2.5 Gbps uplink.
The enhanced performance of the Pro versions will deliver distinct advantages to small businesses and home users that find themselves needing to support a growing number of users and devices, and greater use of video conferencing and collaboration applications.
The uplift to 3000 Gbps bandwidth will be especially attractive to businesses, cafes, shops and other places that have a lot of guests signing on and off the WiFi all the time. The faster, 2.5 Gbps uplink to the network will make these access points an even better option for small WiFi clusters that sit at the edge of a larger network.
Other than that, the new Pro versions of the NWA50AX Pro and NWA90AX Pro offer the same features and benefits as the versions that are already available on the popular earlier versions. Yes, they will cost a little more to buy, but still offer tremendous value for any SMBs or prosumer who wants the very best WiFi 6 performance for all users on all devices, at an affordable price.
