Ideally sized, affordably priced and built to last, Zyxel's NWA1123-AC PRO 3x3 802.11ac access point (AP) delivers all the speed, performance and flexibility small businesses need to go wireless with ease. With a slim-and-stylish form factor and dual-optimized antenna design, you've got the freedom to mount this AP virtually anywhere - ceiling or wall - without sacrificing coverage or smooth Wi-Fi performance. And when it comes to reliability, this AP offers robust features, solid state capacitors and advanced heat dissipation, enabling it to deliver long-lasting performance even in the toughest environments. A user-friendly interface makes setup and management a breeze, and multi-mode operation makes it a flexible choice for reaching challenging locations. It's quality wireless - well within reach. This access point can be managed as a standalone access point or can be managed via Zyxel's free Nebula Cloud Management platform, which provides centralized configuration, monitoring, and management through a web browser or with the Nebula mobile app. This version of the NWA1123-AC Pro includes a PoE Injector.


Product Features

  • Best interior Wi-Fi performance in style
    Users no longer have to compromise between performance and environmental cohesion when deploying business wireless APs. With ultraslim stylish outlook the 3x3 dual-optimized antenna on NWA1123-AC PRO is capable of deliver two different patterns for ceiling- or wall-mount deployment. That frees the AP from being limited to ceiling fixture while maintaining reliable connectivity without causing extra interference. The Zyxel NWA1123-AC PRO is constructed with non-toxic casing materials, making it safe to install in plenum areas, as it doesn't release hazardous vapor emissions in case of fire. This is a life-critical issue - particularly when deploying in public venues such as offices, hotels and schools.
  • Best-ever user experience
    The biggest achievement with the NWA1123-AC PRO is optimized antenna and RF design that create a thoroughly enhanced Wi-Fi experience via a combination of improved software and hardware. Additional improvements to the NWA1123-AC PRO include dynamic channel selection (DCS) and load balancing. DCS avoids interference from co-channel and channel overlapping at initialization, while load balancing allows administrators to easily limit the number of clients associated with each AP. These advanced functions ensure that users can enjoy a stable wireless networking experience over the ideal Wi-Fi channel on the optimal AP.
  • Zyxel one network experience
    Aiming for relieving customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, Zyxel One Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing Zyxel customers to focus on the business priorities. Zyxel One Network presents an easy-to-use tool, Zyxel One Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. Zyxel Smart Connect allows Zyxel networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. Zyxel One Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway.
  • Blending multi-operation flexibility with practical business features
    Along with support for stand-alone operating mode, the Zyxel NWA1123-AC PRO PoE access point also provides repeater/root-AP mode compatibility with Zyxel's Unified Pro Series and Unified Series APs. By taking advantage of these features, users can extend wireless connectivity to challenging locations without the bother of troublesome cabling. The NWA1123-AC PRO offers the ideal solution for small businesses through an array of useful features designed for business deployments, including multiple SSID and solid Wi-Fi security provided by WPA2 Enterprise and Layer-2 isolation. All of these practical enhancements coupled with high-performance RF design make the Zyxel NWA1123-AC PRO the best solution for creating flexible Wi- Fi networks for smaller-scale enterprises.
  • Set up and forget streamlines controller-less deployment
    The NWA1123-AC PRO introduces streamlined controllerless deployment with Zyxel Access Point Configurator (ZAC). Just install the AP wherever desired out of the box and the device will automatically acquire its IP address. ZAC will take over the multiple-AP configuration and help to complete firmware upgrades and profile backups when needed in three easy steps, significantly reducing time and effort. Once the configuration has been completed, the NWA1123-AC PRO is able to operate autonomously without additional maintenance via computer or special management tool. The administrator can easily monitor status using any available SNMP tool, making management simple enough for even networking novices to handle.
  • Dual-optimized antenna
    The unprecedented Dual-optimized Antenna is an adjustable internal antenna with "just fit" pattern options optimized for wall- or ceiling-mount that the installation technician can instantly change the antenna pattern simply via the physical antenna switch without booting the device. If needed, administrators can base on their know-how to perform granular signal optimization per floor plan via software configuration remotely. With the flexibility, the NWA1123-AC PRO can fit for wall-mount or ceiling-mount deployment without the hassles of antenna accessory selection and signal coverage adjustment.
  • Fine art of RF design
    The NWA1123-AC PRO isolates RF circuits by solid shielding frames. Thus, RF noise and electromagnetic interference (EMI) is mitigated meanwhile RF performance is enhanced as well. Solid capacitor for longevity All-solid capacitor design provides up to 6 times lifespan than electrolytic capacitors that delivers better stability and reliability.
