Zyxel introduces Multy Plus

Networking News Routers Wireless Devices

Zyxel introduced the Multy Plus, the latest member of Zyxel’s mesh family targeted at SMBs, it delivers business-grade mesh WiFi at a more affordable price point and with easier, plug-and-play usability. Greater security standards protect businesses at the vulnerable stage of growth to make network flexibility and security manageable at the click of an app, no matter where you are.

“Small businesses have long been relying on commercial access points to provide wireless internet to guests,” said Bill Su, senior AVP of Zyxel’s Smart Living SBU. “It’s a far from optimal solution as wiring these APs takes a great deal of time and money. Managing them is equally difficult given their complex interfaces, which even experts can struggle with.

“As a mesh solution, Multy Plus gets the job done better, with less work and less expenditure. It only requires placing two or more access points anywhere around the premises—no wired connections necessary—and its interface is straightforward enough that even non-IT staff can use it.”

From restaurants to small offices, the device’s tri-band WiFi and 5-GHz dedicated backhaul offer speeds of up to 1,733 Mbps across 5,000 square feet via nine internal antennas.

Multy Plus is raising the bar for cybersecurity with AiShield, a dedicated security app that takes numerous GUI functions and packages them for convenient mobile use. Its security features include access control, which lets you restrict access to tens of thousands of categories of inappropriate websites and up to 500 apps.

Multy Plus also streamlines and simplifies the process of setting up a captive portal that users must navigate through to gain WiFi access. The GUI offers businesses straightforward options for their captive portal, letting them configure the password, terms and conditions, and images, such as a logo or photo.

Multy Plus is the latest member of Zyxel’s mesh family. Its predecessors for home users and service providers—Multy X and Multy Pro—have earned widespread recognition, including at the Taiwan Excellence Awards and the Broadband World Forum.
