WPA2 Enterprise Certified
ZyXEL WAC6500 Series has been certified with industrialstrength WPA2 enterprise protection and supports a wide range of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. It can be seamlessly integrated with deployed corporate RADIUS servers.
ZyXEL One Network Utility
To streamline the management process, the WAC6500 Series comes with the ZyXEL One Network (ZON) utility, allowing administrators to assign IP addresses to multiple APs through just one platform. Administrators can avoid the hassle logging into each AP to change the default IP addresses before physical installation.
ZyXEL AP Configurator
While deploying a number of APs, repetitive configuration of each unit takes time and effort. ZyXEL AP Configurator (ZAC) builds templates that allows users to copy one profile to several APs, allowing batch firmware upgrades and profile backups in three easy steps to significantly reduce configuration time and effort.
ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer
ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer (ZWO) provides a powerful tool for centralized management covering initial planning, adjustment during deployment and after-sale maintenance of an AP network. Architects can simulate AP deployment on a map displaying the number of APs needed. During deployment, ZWO will also map actual signal coverage for architects to adjust their AP locations or configurations. After-sale, network administrators can access key performance details from ZWO, including channel in use, transmit retry rate and frame error rate, as well as the devices on the environment map. ZWO’s user-friendly presentation saves time and facilitates quick response to the network problems.
Wireless Mesh is an array of access points automatically forming dynamic wireless links. Built on this foundation of mesh networking, ZyMesh is ZyXEL’s proprietary protocol for creating wireless mesh links for easy configuration, optimized management and enhanced reliability.
