Marketing Information The Zyxel WAC500 802.11ac Wave 2 Dual-Radio Unified Access Point is a highly future-proof WLAN solution perfect for growing business, hospitality and education environments. With a 3-in-1 standalone/controller/cloudmanaged design, users can initially use it as a standalone AP, and convert it to a controller-managed or Nebula cloud-managed AP when WiFi demand grows. The WAC500 is designed with industry-leading technology to provide trouble-free wireless quality to lower IT overhead. The embedded antennas and signal output are fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and maximum signal coverage. It also supports such features as dynamic channel selection, load balancing and pre-authentication for superb WiFi experience.

Benefits | Ceiling-mount design blends into environments

Different from traditional business routers, low-profile ceiling-mount design of Zyxel WAC500 provides better coverage and performance. The WAC500 is a PoE AP with a multifunction design that solves all problems by offering an advanced antenna design to enhance wireless performance and to eliminate coverage dead spots. Moreover, the signal outputs have been fine-tuned to provide easy RF planning and excellent signal coverage especially for hospitality and education environments.

The Zyxel WAC500 is constructed from non-toxic casing materials, making it safe to install in plenum areas, as it won't release hazardous vapor emissions in the event of a fire. This is life-critical issue, particularly when deploying in public venues such as offices, hotels, and schools.
