Zyxel WiFi 6E APs enable organizations to reduce network interference

Zyxel Networks announced a family of WiFi 6E access points (APs) that enable businesses to enjoy the performance benefits provided by using the newly opened 6 GHz WiFi spectrum.

Ideal for deployment in crowded, high-density environments, Zyxel’s new WiFi 6E Access Point series includes: WAX640S-6E AXE7800 Tri-Band WiFi 6E Access Point (4×4 + 2×2 + 2×2), WAX620D -6E AXE5400 WiFi Dual Band 6E Access Point (2×2 + 4×4) and NWA220AX-6E AXE5400 Dual Band WiFi 6E Access Point (2×2 + 4×4).

WiFi 6E offers the ideal solution to WiFi spectrum congestion by using the 6 GHz band, which offers 2.5 times more capacity, super-wide channels for bandwidth-intensive applications, and no interference from microwaves and devices that are not WiFi 6E. Zyxel WiFi 6E Access Points are designed to increase performance in high-density environments such as SMBs, schools, hotels, and other hospitality venues that have to accommodate an increasing number of WiFi devices on their networks.

Typically, each person on the network has multiple devices that need to connect, such as phones, laptops, tablets, and smart watches. Zyxel WiFi 6E access points offer a solution that enables organizations to keep up with the increasing demand on their WiFi networks as more WiFi 6E clients are used.

Features and benefits of Zyxel WiFi 6E access points:

  • Extended range in the 6GHz band – Zyxel 6E Boost technology helps increase the distance covered by WiFi 6E by employing four 6 GHz streams using a combination of finely tuned 4×4 6 GHz radios, quality RF filters and optimized components, to extend the range of the AP and maximize device connectivity from greater distances in high-density environments.
  • Wi-Fi solution ready for the future – The WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E access points feature BandFlex, an industry-leading radio design that can be configured to operate on either the 5 GHz or 6 GHz bands. More affordable than full tri-band access points, the WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E access points can be deployed to offload WiFi traffic in congested areas to 6GHz, or they can be deployed as 5GHz access points and switch to 6GHz when more are available. compatible devices are operating in a particular area.
  • Minimize interference for maximum performance – Zyxel WiFi 6E access points feature an advanced RF filter with advanced cellular coexistence that minimizes interference from nearby 5GHz channels and 4G/5G mobile networks. WAX640S-6E also includes a smart antenna that continuously monitors the connection and adaptively adjusts its antenna patterns to mitigate shared channel interference and increase WiFi performance.
  • flexible management – WAX640S-6E and WAX620D-6E come with a one-year Nebula Pro Pack license and support cloud-based, controller standalone management of Nebula, providing full management flexibility in any network environment. NWA220AX-6E can be managed as a standalone device or via the cloud with a free base package license for Zyxel Nebula.

“Performance and connectivity issues caused by interference and congestion have long been an issue with WiFi networks, and is particularly problematic in high-density environments and when using latency-sensitive applications such as VR/AR. , 8K video streaming and online gaming. ” explained Shawn Rogers, manager of market development for Zyxel Networks. “Our family of WiFi 6E access points enables businesses to greatly reduce network interference by using the new 6 GHz WiFi spectrum. Zyxel WiFi 6E products provide extended range and management flexibility, to provide a cost-effective solution for upgrading existing WiFi infrastructures to deliver reliable, multi-gigabit, low-latency connectivity for critical applications.”

The Zyxel WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E WiFi 6E Access Points have limited lifetime warranties and are available now through all authorized Zyxel resellers and e-commerce partners at retail prices of $399.99 and $199.99. USD, respectively. WAX640S-6E will be available in the third quarter of 2022.
