- Cloud-managed, dual-radio 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac AP
- Supports combined data rates of up to 1.75 Gbps
- Smart antenna provides breakthrough performance
- Self-configuration and zerotouch deployment
- Enterprise-class security and RF optimization
- Dynamic Channel Selection, Load Balancing and Smart Client Steering
- Industry-leading receive sensitivity at as low as -102 dBm
- Tool-less bracket design simplifies installation
The Zyxel Nebula APs auto-configure themselves after installation, and then automatically connect to the Nebula cloud to join the network; so autoconfiguration, provision, monitoring and diagnostics can be performed anytime, anywhere. This simplifies network setup and enables deployment of Nebula APs to a remotely located network even by non-IT professionals.
Smart antenna technology
Featuring more than 700 optimized antenna patterns, the Smart Antenna can continuously calculate the ideal physical-layer path for each individual client. This feature not only offers the best possible signals by shaping to various patterns, but also mitigates interference from other wireless clients. With the advance technology, the Zyxel NAP303 can handle a variety of tough deployments such as high-capacity, high-performance and interference-laden environments.
Best-in-class coverage and performance
Different from other 802.11ac APs, the Zyxel NAP303 stands out with its best-in-class coverage and performance thanks to its unique RF design. The AP’s three-stream hardware configuration provides power of up to 30 dBm and unparalleled receive sensitivity of as low as -102 dBm. The Smart Antenna technology doubles the NAP303’s performance over conventional internal antennas, and it performs three times (3x) better than legacy 802.11n APs as well.
Optimized wireless experience
The Zyxel Nebula NAP303 delivers optimized wireless experience for users with comprehensive wireless features such as Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS), Load Balancing, and Smart Client Steering, etc. DCS avoids interference from co-channeling and overlapping channels continuously, while Load Balancing and Smart Client Steering which features Band Select and Balance for more spectrum to provide more stable, reliable wireless connections.
The Zyxel Nebula NAP303 Access Point inherits the NETCONF protocol for secure configuration changes. In terms of authentication and data encryption, it supports WPA2 enterprise protection and a wide range of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types, including EAP SIM for smartphones. Besides, the NAP303 also features access control and Layer-2 isolation for privacy protection. The comprehensive security features ensure NAP303 to deliver enterprise-grade protection to the entire network
