 Solving the WLAN Problems of Tomorrow, Today

802.11ac Dual-Radio Ceiling Mount PoE Access Point

Zyxel delivers speed and convenience with its refreshed NWA1123-ACv2 802.11ac 2x2 PoE access point (AP), offering streamlined controller-less deployment for a trouble-free wireless LAN experience. Building on the solid reputation of its predecessor, this ultra-fast AP brings together remarkable performance and coverage enhancements, along with a user-friendly interface and robust design components. The smoke detector-style exterior makes this AP ideal for indoor ceiling-mount installation, providing smooth Wi-Fi service without detracting from interior design aesthetics. The NWA1123-ACv2 also supports repeater operating mode, making it a flexible solution for small businesses, hotels, and school environments.

Best interior performance in a smoke detector design
Users no longer have to choose between performance and environmental cohesion when deploying business wireless APs. The smoke detector-style form factor of the Zyxel NWA1123-ACv2 with embedded antenna module and optimized radiation pattern is suitable for ceiling installation. This design element not only helps it outperform comparable APs, but also allows it to blend seamlessly into interior spaces and prevent equipment theft. The Zyxel NWA1123-ACv2 is constructed from non-toxic casing materials, making it safe to install in plenum areas, as it won’t release hazardous vapor emissions in the event of a fire. This is life-critical issue, particularly when deploying in public venues such as offices, hotels, and schools.

Zyxel One Network experience
Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, Zyxel One Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our customers to focus on the business priorities. Zyxel One Network presents an easy-to-use tool, Zyxel One Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. Zyxel Smart Connect*1 allows Zyxel networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. Zyxel One Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway


Best-ever user experience
The biggest achievement with the NWA1123-ACv2 is optimized antenna and RF design that create a thoroughly enhanced Wi-Fi experience via a combination of improved software and hardware. Additional improvements to the NWA1123-ACv2 include dynamic channel selection (DCS) and load balancing. DCS avoids interference from co-channel and channel overlapping at initialization, while load balancing allows administrators to easily limit the number of clients associated with each AP. These advanced functions ensure that users can enjoy a stable wireless networking experience over the ideal Wi-Fi channel on the optimal AP.

Ultra-fast Gigabit Wi-Fi experience

Featuring the latest 802.11ac standard, NWA1123-ACv2 not only provides data rates of up to 1200 Mbps, but also optimizes signal with its advanced antenna design to bring the best user experience through a higher number of parallel video data streams for minimized latency on the network. Additionally, the concurrent dual-band support enables NWA1123-ACv2 to satisfy clients using both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz at the same time and is perfect for high-density applications such as hospitality, education and business.

Streamlined deployments for optimized WLAN experience

NWA1123-ACv2 features APFlexTM to simplify managed/standalone AP mode configuration to integrate with network environments automatically and to eliminate the need for pre-install preparations. To deliver optimized wireless experience for users, NWA1123-ACv2 features Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS), Load Balancing and Smart Client Steering, etc.

Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) avoids interference from co-channel and channel overlapping at initialization, while Load Balancing enables administrators to set limits on the number of clients associated with each AP. Furthermore, Smart Client steering features Band Select, Signal Threshold and Band Balancing for stable, reliable wireless connections. Band Select and Signal Threshold monitor the capabilities of each wireless client and steer them to the less-congested band and the AP with better signal. Band Balancing detects dual-radio clients and distributes clients across 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands on AP. These advanced functions ensure NWA1123-ACv2 to provide a smooth, consistent and uninterrupted wireless access experience.
