About ZyXEL NWA3550

The ZyXEL NWA3550 is an ideal solution for business seeking to deploy WLAN services in a variety of outdoor environments for extended dual-band wireless signal coverage and increased aggregated bandwidth. The durable waterproof, dust-sealed and UV-resistant casing, as well as ZyXEL's full options of accessories including antennas, cables and surge resisters enable NWA3550 to offers network planners with a solid and efficient outdoor system.

In addition to wider bandwidths, the NWA3550 also provides practical applications to bridge separate networks. One of the two radio bands can be used as the connection backbone while the other serves WLAN clients at the same time. This is highly beneficial for businesses to connect different buildings quickly without expensive cable deployments. The exterior of the NWA3550 is designed to comply with the IP-66 standard, which guarantees protection against dusts and even powerful water jets. Furthermore, the device is equipped with a built-in heater monitored by the temperature sensor for NWA3550 to endure harsh outdoor environments.

The NWA3550 has Power over Ethernet (PoE) support that allows administrators to install the device in areas where power outlets are not available. In order to fully supply the electrical power required and to relieve technicians from the hassle finding a suitable PSE, the shipment package includes a ZyXEL-certified PSE unit; and a well-designed mounting kit is also enclosed to facilitate both wall-mount and pole-mount installations.

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.
