Looking to add Wi-Fi 7 to your SMB network? Zyxel Networks has an easy solution

The faster your internal network, the easier it is to download from the internet and transfer files between your systems. Wi-Fi 7 is the latest wireless connectivity technology, vastly increasing speeds over Wi-Fi 6. Zyxel Networks is making it easier and more affordable to add Wi-Fi 7 to your SMB with the launch of the NWA130BE BE11000 Wi-Fi 7 Triple-Radio NebulaFlex Access Point.

Of course, the devices on your network will have to support the new Wi-Fi 7 technology. The new access point from Zyxel supports 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz frequency bands with extra-wide 320MHz channels for speeds of up to 11Gbps.

“As WiFi 7-supported devices begin to enter the mainstream market this year, SMBs will need to look seriously at upgrading the existing network infrastructures to take advantage of the faster speeds, enhanced reliability, and increased capacity that WiFi 7 technology offers. The ease of deployment and versatility of managing NWA130BE as a standalone or cloud-managed device makes it the ideal solution for adding WiFi 7 capabilities to an existing network.”

Key features and benefits of the Zyxel Networks NWA130BE Wi-Fi 7 Access Point include:

  • Multiple Link Operation (MLO) – Unlike access points that restrict communications with client devices to a single band, MLO enables client devices to concurrently transmit and receive data through the various frequency bands and channels on NWA130BE. The integration of MLO technology enables the access point to deliver significant amplification in data throughput, reduction in latency, and enhanced reliability.
  • RF-first Design – To guarantee a seamless WiFi experience, NWA130BE incorporates an advanced RF filter to eliminate interference between 5GHz and 6GHz bands, and a 4G/5G interference filter to assure seamless coexistence with 4G/5G cellular networks. The rectangular housing helps maintain better isolation between the antennas to deliver a stronger signal-to-noise ratio to improve network performance in crowded or high-density environments.
  • Versatility in Deployment and Management – NWA130BE supports NebulaFlex, allowing users to deploy and manage the access point in standalone or cloud-managed modes making it a quick and easy solution for adding WiFi 7 capabilities to an existing network infrastructure. The versatility enables administrators to adapt to the changing requirements of their networks while protecting existing investments in wireless technology. Support for Zyxel’s Nebula Cloud Networking Solution provides administrators with advanced WLAN management and optimization capabilities and enhanced privacy and security features through the powerful and intuitive cloud-based Nebula Control Center.
  • Dual 2.5G Ethernet Ports – NWA130BE features two 2.5G Ethernet ports which allows users to seamlessly add WiFi 7 to existing networks using affordable 2.5G multi-gigabit switches, eliminating the time and cost of re-cabling the office. The inclusion of the second 2.5G Ethernet port provides network administrators with extra flexibility in the wired network setup.
  • Supports 802.3at PoE – Unlike most WiFi 7 access points that require 802.3bt, NWA130BE supports standard 802.3at PoE eliminating the need to upgrade existing PoE switches or purchase additional power injectors.
  • AI-powered WiFi Management and Integrated Security – Nebula’s AI-powered WiFi Aid and Wireless Health features automatically diagnose network access issues across the entire wireless client onboarding journey and resolve common WiFi issues to save administrators time on tedious troubleshooting. Connect & Protect Plus (CNP+) provides users with enhanced security against breaches at the access point, securing the wireless edge at the point where most user traffic enters the network. Administrators can implement security policies directly through the AP without altering the existing network infrastructure.
