Superior, Secure WLAN Experience for Distributed Enterprise and CampusSingle-point management for scalable networks
This new, secure WLAN solution is based on the ZyXEL NXC5200 Wireless LAN Controller as well as the ZyXEL NWA5160N, NWA5560-N, and NWA5550-N Managed APs that scales up to 240 APs to provide comprehensive wireless coverage. Real-time functions such as data roaming, authentication and load balancing are performed on the NXC5200 while the NWA5160N, NWA5560-N, and NWA5550-N function strictly as signal converters. The major benefit is the centralized configuration independent of the number of available managed access points as long as there is an IP network available to the administrator.
Secure wireless edge to block threats from mobile users
Mobile users pose more critical threats to company networks than wired users. To address this, the NXC5200 comes with Firewall features such as stateful packet check to regulate data incoming from mobile users. In addition, the license-based Intrusion Detection and Prevention as well as Anti-Virus functions also allow the NXC5200 to act as a gatekeeper on the network edge to block potential threats. ZyXEL keeps the best-of-breed technology and provides strong industry-standard WLAN security with WPA/WPA2-enterprise authentication and a variety of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) supports. The NWA5000-N Series can relieve businesses from critical WLAN security concerns.
Full performance without concerns
The prevalence of 11n wireless networks is putting the capacity of traditional controllers to the test. Fortunately, the NXC5200 is designed to relieve the concerns for IT staff – the high-performance system pumps data through each virtual AP, and it can be configured to bridge locally or enter the NXC5200 WLAN controller for better management. With this feature, the NXC5200 and the NWA5000-N Series can offload the network burden while allowing users to enjoy the 11n wireless performance.
Zero-configuration construction for minimized provisioning efforts
Centralized administration simplifies planning significantly. The NXC5200 and the NWA5000-N Series are designed to enable easy deployment and instant provisioning. After carrying out a site survey, the user can place the NWA5000-N Series managed APs on the most suitable spots; the NWA5000-N Series will automatically look for the NXC5200 to establish connections, and then the pre-defined configuration will be applied to the NWA5000-N Series to complete the deployment. The NWA5000-N Series supports the 802.3af or 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard to utilize the Ethernet cable for minimized cabling construction. The ZyXEL NXC5200 and the NWA5000-N Series can provide simplified installation in addition to better Wi-Fi experience.
Easy, comprehensive guest network management
To IT administrators, one of the major concerns is to deploy a WLAN infrastructures with flexible guess access while providing internal users a separated secure network at the same time. The NXC5200 and NWA5000-N Series feature end-to-end guest network solutions to provide a guest account generator and Web authentication functions. The guest account generator allows dynamic user accounts to be created as soon as the guests check into the front desk for minimized IT management efforts. The Web authentication function provides an easy way to identify guest users and it also works with the embedded firewall policies to segregate guest traffics from the internal users to maintain a clean, safe wireless infrastructure. The ZyXEL NXC5200 and NWA5000-N Series can eliminate concerns for IT administrators while providing the best Wi-Fi coverage at the same time. It is an ideal and secure choice for business Wi-Fi deployments.
