Overview:

Superior Coverage from Multifunction Ceiling Mount Access Point

The ZyXEL NWA1120 Series is a standard-based, SNMP-managed PoE Access Point (AP) that includes two 802.11n models: the 2.4 GHz NWA1121-NI and concurrent 2.4/5 GHz NWA1123- NI as well as the newly introduced NWA1123-AC featuring the advanced 802.11ac technology. The smoke detector look exterior makes the NWA1120 Series perfect for indoor ceiling-mount installation; with the optimized antennas built-in, its design solves the common interference issue in ceiling-mount deployments. The NWA1120 Series supports multiple operating modes, such as wireless client and repeater, which make it an ideal, flexible solution for small business, hotels and school environments.

  • Compact ceiling-mount design with optimized RF performance
  • High performance for better Wi-Fi experiences (IEEE 802.11n/IEEE 802.11ac)
  • Easy RF planning with the same 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signal coverage (NWA1123-NI, NWA1123-AC)
  • Flexible operating modes (standalone, client mode, root-AP/ repeater mode)

Benefits:

Ceiling-mount design with best interior wireless performance

Different from traditional business wireless APs struggling between performance and environment cohesion, the ZyXEL NWA1120 Series of PoE AP features embedded antennas and ceiling-mount capability without sacrificing wireless performance. In typical ceiling-mount installations, the access points with external antennas are mostly hidden in the plenum area; to prevent performance degradation, the antennas usually stick out of the ceiling—messy for indoor deployments. The smoke detector-style exterior of ZyXEL NWA1120 Series is suitable for ceiling installation that prevents equipment theft. Although the NWA1120 Series uses built-in antennas, it outperforms APs with internal antennas and blends into the interior better as well.

In addition, the ZyXEL NWA1120 Series adopts non-toxic casing material, since it’s usually placed in plenum areas, to prevent hazardous vapor emission in case of fire; this is especially important to public venues such as offices, hotels and schools.

High-density with high-quality user experience

It’s now common for a user to carry two or more devices that use different Wi-Fi bands; this challenges many places that still use legacy Wi-Fi AP with insufficient capability to serve the high-bandwidth devices. Both NWA1123-NI and NWA1123-AC are compatible with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands to support more users at the same time. Featuring the latest IEEE 802.11ac technology, including the expanded channel binding of 80 MHz and the highest 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation), the new NWA1123-AC delivers data speeds of up to 3 times faster. This brings the best user experience through higher number of parallel video data streams for minimized latency on the network.

Easy RF planning with same 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signal coverage (NWA1123-NI, NWA1123-AC)

Most Wi-Fi devices around us operate in the crowded 2.4 GHz band where only three non-overlapping channels can be used for deployments, and complaints for the unsatisfactory network performance are not uncommon. As many recent mobile or laptop devices support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, users tend to choose the 5 GHz band as their first priority; as a result, serving the 5 GHz devices becomes more important than before. However, the coverage of the higher-frequency 5 GHz band is inherently smaller comparing to the 2.4 GHz band, given the same output power. With a fine-tuned 5 GHz radio mechanism that boosts performance at the frequency, the coverage of NWA1123-NI and NWA1123-AC becomes comparable to which at the 2.4 GHz band to reduce the complexity of deployments considerably.

Multi-operation flexibility and practical business features

The NWA1120 Series of PoE Access Points supports multiple operating modes including stand-alone access point, wireless client and repeater/root-AP mode. The wireless client mode enables office peripherals like printers or fax machines to connect to the network in case they are located in places difficult for cabling. The NWA1120 Series also extends Wi-Fi services utilizing the repeater or root-AP mode to prevent excessive cable constructions. The NWA1120 Series is the best choice for small businesses for its practical features designed for business deployments: multiple SSID, solid Wi-Fi security of WPA2 Enterprise, Layer-2 isolation and 802.1 x radius authentication. All these practical features along with the high-performance RF design make the ZyXEL NWA1120 Series the best solution for building flexible Wi-Fi networks in small businesses.
