Ratification of IEEE 802.11n allows the technology to achieve good growth in commercial environments as it helps businesses to cope with challenges from increasingly complicated and bandwidth-hungry applications. In addition to enhancing throughput and coverage, the IEEE 802.11n standard offers the following benefits: elimination of bandwidth contention, future-proof support as well as accommodation for more users and floor space. To catch up the wave of 802.11n, ZyXEL introduced the enterprise-level NWA3000-N Series Access Point (AP) to meet the requirement of the 'n generation'. The new range provides various AP portfolios from single radio to concurrent radio, as well as dual-frequency APs (dual-band NWA3160-N as well as dual-band and dual-radio NWA3560-N). Designed to meet the requirements of SMB market segment, the NWA3000-N Series is ideally suited for advanced service delivery on mission-critical networks.


Undoubtedly, mobility is the key to improve employee productivity and efficiency in all modern businesses as more and more bandwidth-consuming Web applications and mobile devices are involved in daily operations today. Beyond mobility, the ratified 11n technology allows faster (up to 300 Mbps) data rates and better network reliability that supports more users to accommodate business needs. As performance of 11n Wireless LAN has exceeded the speed of basic wired Ethernet, it turns out to be a more cost-effective option for businesses building or expanding access networks over investing on a large number of wired LAN switches. The ZyXEL NWA3000-N Series is a 'hybrid' AP that acts as a standalone AP infrastructure or a centralized management structure with controller mode and managed AP. The hybrid feature has full flexibility to deploy secure and reliable WLAN networks. In the initial phase constructing a WLAN, the NWA3000-N Series can be configured as a fully functional standalone AP; with more APs installed, the NWA3000-N Series can be set to the WLAN controller mode to manage the rest of APs. The scalability is able to manage up to 24 APs and it is also suitable for companies with a staff of 300-500.
