About ZyXEL NXC8160

The ZyXEL NXC-8160 Wireless LAN Controller is the central component of ZyXEL's unique "Interference-Free" architecture, while the NWA-8500 802.11a/g Ultra-thin Wireless Business Access Point is a high-performance dual 802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Point that interoperates with NXC-8160.

The unique solution enables the signals on the same channel to be transmitted through every access point in the system without the co-channel interference that plagues other WLAN solutions. Clients only need to associate with the controller once in order to move within the channel blanket without experiencing inter-AP handoffs. As a result, different WLAN security settings will have no impact on its speed; that is, the zero-delay roaming functionalities can retain its outstanding "always-connected" performance even with the most sophisticated encryption and authentication mechanisms applied.

Simply put, the solution provides the flexibility, performance and simplicity required by enterprises to support data, video and voice (VoWLAN) applications in ubiquitous WLAN deployments. The 8-port controller can be used individually or in combination with multiple controllers to meet the needs of crowded enterprise environments of any size or kind.

ZyXEL NXC8160 Features

  • The NXC-8160 WLAN System reduces the complexity of RF surveys and cell planning. The NWA-8500 UltraThin APs are placed where needed for best coverage and do not require configuration
  • NXC-8160 Wireless IDS can protect your WiFi network from the following attacks: Duration Attack, Association Flood Attack, Disassociation Flood Attack, Invalid Authentication-Request Attack, De-Authentication Flood Attack, EAPOL Start Attack and EAPOL Logoff Attack
  • WLAN Security is always hot topic; WPA2 is great however extra installation or setup may required upon different Operating system. ZyXEL NXC-8160 provides Web based authentication which is the most intuitive user interface and it is installation-free
  • The NXC-8160 supplies power for all the connected NWA-8500 through built-in PoE, eliminating the need for AC power at the APs. The NXC-8160 supports up to 8 NWA-8500 units and the ultra-thin plug-and-play AP does not need any configuration in the installation process
