Zyxel WiFi 6 (11ax) AP series eases network congestion in classrooms

Networking News

Zyxel announced the release of the WiFi 6 (11ax) access point (AP) series, designed to ease network congestion in classrooms and high-density environments.
Teachers and pupils now spend more time working online through smart whiteboards, laptops or tablets. But with 30-40 pupils in a class, schools struggle with network performance, including slow downloads, buffering videos, or inconsistent experience for digital interactive learning—even with an AP in every classroom. To combat this challenge, schools need a network solution that increases capacity and breaks down the technical barrier to helping pupils embrace modern, digital learning methods.

Zyxel’s new WiFi 6 (11ax) AP series, led by the WAX650S, is able to support a large group of devices simultaneously and keeps interference out of the classroom. WiFi 6, or high efficiency wireless, is the latest iteration of wireless technology which offers faster speeds, greater capacity, and reduced latency.

Zyxel has designed the WAX650S with smart antenna technology, which coupled with the use of spatial reuse technology, boosts network performance and overcomes network interference more powerfully than other WiFi 6 APs.

As well as the smart antenna, the WAX650S AP includes 5Gb-ethernet support and WiFi 6 standard multi-gig speed for a faster wireless environment. Dedicated scanning radio allows for all-time monitoring of network issues without impacting WiFi quality, while optimized hardware design enables the AP to better tackle wireless interference challenges.

The 11ax AP series also integrates with Zyxel’s NebulaFlex solution and comes bundled with a one-year pro-pack license. By integrating with Nebula, schools can reap the benefits of cloud networking and remotely manage their system without the need for a dedicated IT team.
