The ZyXEL NWA3166 is a plenum-rated, enterprise-level WLAN hybrid access point that doubles as a WLAN controller capable of centrally managing up to 24 APs offering businesses scalability and flexible deployment options. With the Multiple In, Multiple Out (MIMO) technology of 11n, the NWA3166 uses signal reflections to increase coverage range and reduce "dead spots", providing data rates up to 300Mbps for access to higher bandwidth applications. The 3-in-1 hybrid AP functions as an independent AP, centrally managed AP or as a WLAN controller and can manage 24 separate APs. The built-in controller enables ease of management allowing SMBs the ability to globally manage all APs, resulting in lower total cost of ownership, scalability, time savings and overall reduction in maintenance costs. Security and Voice over IP or Voice over Wi-Fi applications are one of the main challenges in the enterprise environment. The ZyXEL NWA3166 is equipped with multiple ESSID and VLAN to perform as multiple virtual APs, which can be independent to each other. The device comes with pre-set SSIDs for high-priority voice traffic and guest access. ZyXEL ATC (Auto Traffic Classifier) feature ensures quality of service for different time-sensitive applications.
