The WAX510D is truly the next generation of wireless (WiFi 6) AP, especially for businesses looking to strike the right balance between performance and budget. Its built-in 2nd Generation WiFi 6 (Qualcomm 802.11ax 2.0) chipset allows the access point to take advantage of the full range of WiFi 6 technologies including uplink OFDMA and MU-MIMO, which can’t be found in the earlier releases of 802.11ax. The WAX510D boasts an impressive QuadCore processor with 2 network accumulators to guarantee that a smooth and consistently fast service is provided to each client at all times. Also, it uses the second generation transmit beamforming technology incorporating Low End Sensitivity Improvements and Time Domain Channel Smoothing allowing data rates to increase for not only MU-MIMO clients, but for all existing ones as well.

The WAX510D is not only efficient at delivering impressive high speeds with smooth and consistent delivery to wireless clients, but also it’s efficient on power. The WAX510D can deliver its impressive performance while keeping the consumption of PoE within the PoE+ standard, so that you can enjoy the latest WiFi 6 technology offering without the need to invest in upgrading your traditional switching architecture.

The WAX510D with NebulaFlex Pro offers the full flexibility for users to switch among standalone, controller-managed and cloud-managed modes. In addition, it comes with a 1-year bundled Nebula Professional Pack license*1that eliminates immediate licensing cost when migrating to full-featuredcloud management.

Bringing next generation WiFi within reach

Zyxel’s new WAX510D is a true WiFi 6 access point that delivers faster performance and massive increasedcapacity, which along with unique Zyxel dual optimized antenna technology, make the user experience even better. Apart from running at 25% faster speed, the WAX510D can also accommodate more client devices without any fall-off in speed, allowing an easy scale-up capacity to support hundreds of connections without increased latency.

NebulaFlex Pro – simply manage it your way!

The NebulaFlex Pro provides extended flexibility, allowing users to easily switch among standalone, on-promises controller or our intuitive NCC (Nebula Control Center) modes any time according to your needs without additional cost while protecting wireless technology investments. The privilege of one-year professional pack you can get once upon registration on Nebula includes wireless health, site-wide topology, 365-day statistics on the devices and clients monitoring along with more upcoming advanced features on NCC and its App.

Unparalleled high-density performance

Essentially, there are two technologies that make a real difference in WiFi 6 – orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (ODFMA), and spatial re-use, which is also referred to as Basic Service Set (BSS) coloring. These make WiFi 6 a much more efficient technology than 802.11ac. The BSS coloring allows multiple access points to be used in the same vicinity without fear of co-channel interference.

Superior performance with innovative “Dualoptimized” antenna

People without RF expertise may not realize that installing an AP optimized for ceiling-mount as wall-mount may cause the ceiling-mount radiation pattern to interfere with other devices up- or downstairs as well as to deliver signals with shorter-than-expected range for its clients. Designed with the innovative “Dual-optimized” antenna, the WAX510D adapts to both wall- and ceiling-mount installations. Thus, users can switch between the two optimized antenna modes easily to fit either situation. To boost WiFi speeds for your network, the WAX510D is definitely an excellent choice.

4G/5G cellular network coexistence

With the growing pervasiveness of mobile devices in the wireless network, users start to experience degraded performance, such as ping drops and high latency, however whenever user shutdown the mobile equipment, wireless service resumes working smooth. Thus, to enable 4G/5G cellular network coexistence and minimize interference from 4G/5G antennas or signal boosters, the WAX510D has built-in 4G/5G interference filters. As a result, the visible or invisible 4G/5G indoor antennas in the environment is no longer an issue when installing APs.
