High Density and Large-scale Deployments
ZyXEL NWA-3500 can be configured as an 802.11a or 802.11b/g access point with up to 15 non-overlapping channels (upon regulatory domain) for high density and large-scale deployments. With dual-band support and rogue AP detection that covers the whole spectrum, all traffics are under close watch anytime. The dual-band configurable NWA-3500 wireless access point provides more channels and more security.

Maximum Wireless Throughput
The dual-radio feature of NWA-3500 supports dual-band configuration, therefore it can be configured as a concurrent dual-band access point to provide maximum wireless throughput. It can also be configured as 11a for bridging, or 11g for extending the wireless coverage without compromising the throughput. The concurrent dual-band capability indeed provides unlimited flexibility for efficient Wi-Fi network planning.

Voice, Networking and Wireless Communications
As Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) gains more ground in office environments today, ZyXEL's NWA-3500 is designed to meet voice and data convergence requirements. It's Wi-Fi WMM-certified and has ZyXEL's unique Auto Traffic Classifier (ATC) that automatically prioritizes traffics, especially for conventional applications. As for roaming capability, another VoWiFi essence, the NWA-3500 supports pre-authentication, PMK cache and IAPP enhancements to improve the hand-off timing. Deploy the VoWiFi-ready NWA-3500 and enjoy the convenience of low-cost conversations instantly.

Enterprise Class Security
ZyXEL delivers enterprise-class security features to small and medium businesses. To shield wireless communication at the source, WPA2 with TKIP/AES encryption provides the latest and toughest standard-based security while WEP encryption supports legacy wireless clients. Additionally, WPA2 ensures the compatibility with all Wi-Fi-certified wireless clients.

Virtual AP for Specific Applications
The NWA-3500 supports up to 16 SSIDs with 802.1Q VLAN tag that allows NWA-3500 to perform as multiple virtual access points. The NWA-3500 also provides pre-defined voice SSID and guest SSID for optimized voice prioritization, and offers top-level security for guest access without difficulties of complicated configuration efforts.

Powerful Management with Scalability for Massive Deployment
This access point supports a wide variety of administration features with powerful and secure control over the system. The NWA-3500 also provides a breakthrough benefit by using a centralized account on RADIUS server to control all the NWA-3500 access points; this simplifies management efforts and improves network security. Moreover, users can perform massive installation and configuration upgrades with the auto-configuration function. Simply put, the NWA-3500 is the best choice for small to medium enterprises.
