Zyxel today unveiled the new NWA1302-AC access point. The access point is useful for business applications in, for example, office environments, but also for hotels and schools. Fast, reliable and wireless internet can easily be delivered to users in any room.

Zyxel has deliberately made the new access point simple. System integrators can install the AP in minutes and often no additional switch is required. The NWA1302-AC offers AP technology with an integrated Gigabit switch with PoE. The idea of this model is to install one per room. The access point eliminates the need for an additional network switch, reducing the number of products to be purchased and installed and leaving more time to do business.

Small and medium-sized organisations

“Small and medium-sized organisations with many rooms, such as hotels, schools and offices, often have tight schedules and budgets,” says Peter van der Putten, Head of Channel of Zyxel Benelux. “Anything that can reduce procurement costs or interruptions due to the installation of new equipment helps organizations significantly. The NWA1302-AC takes care of this.

The flexible management of the NWA1302-AC means that there is no risk of making the wrong choice from a management point of view. So they don’t have to choose between, for example, devices that work autonomously or are managed. This is where the NWA1302-AC is suitable, says Zyxel. In standalone mode, the access point handles traffic autonomously, reducing the strain on personnel. However, it can also be switched to cloud-based mode, after which the administrator has full control over the access point from any browser via the Nebula Cloud Center in just a few clicks.

Seamless installation and RF first

Thanks to the user-friendly installation hardware, the NWA1302-AC can be mounted on the wall, in a meter cupboard, under a desk or out of sight behind a table within minutes, without additional installation kits. All this can be done depending on what fits best in terms of signal strength and equipment.

The built-in Ethernet and PoE ports make it even easier to use and make it possible to connect and power other devices in the room, such as smart TVs and IP telephones. The NWA1302-AC is designed based on a “RF-first” approach, which optimizes the radio frequency for each hardware component for maximum coverage and higher data rates.

The NWA1302-AC is now available.
