802.11n Long Range PoE Access Point


Long-range, Powerful and Optimal Wi-Fi Connectivity for Businesses


Boost Wi-Fi coverage for more than 30%

Today, speed is no longer an issue for Wi-Fi, but coverage still is. That is, longer distance causes serious drop in throughput. The boosted output power of Zyxel NWA1100-NH improves throughput in the same distance and thus extends the coverage comparing other APs with regular output strength. With even the same number of AP deployed, users can still enjoy better performance within the coverage.

Adaptive to the existing wiring infrastructure

Compliant with the 802.3af standard consuming power of less than 15 Watts, the NWA1100-NH not only saves energy but also adopts latency switches; as such there’s no need to change the wired infrastructure and it helps businesses to minimize extra cost on new equipment setup.

Zyxel ONE Network experience

Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying andmanaging a network, Zyxel ONE Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our customers to focus on the business priorities. Zyxel ONE Network presents an easy-to-use tool, Zyxel ONE Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. Zyxel Smart Connect* allows Zyxel networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. Zyxel ONE Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway.

Secured Wi-Fi access control

The devices requiring Wi-Fi connectivity are mostly mobile units and are mostly not corporate assets, so management to access privileges of such Wi-Fi clients is definitely required to secure the business network. The Zyxel NWA1100-NH offers various ways to verify Wi-Fi clients in order to keep unauthorized users from connecting to the network or taking network resources.

* Zyxel Smart Connect is supported on selected models. Please refer to specifications for more detail.

Feature Highlights

Long range coverage

With the boosted 28 dBm output power and 5 dBi high antenna gain, the Zyxel NWA1100-NH can amplify signal transmitted and received for mobile devices with weak output power to connect to the Wi-Fi networks with ease. Thanks to this feature, the NWA1100-NH is able to provide WLAN connectivity to serve most client devices.

Powered device

The Zyxel NWA1100-NH is designed to be flexible in various deployment scenarios. As a standard powered device (PD), the NWA1100-NH can work with 802.3af and 802.3at PoE switches to eliminate inconvenience caused by, for example, insufficient power outlets.

Zyxel ONE Network utility

To streamline the management process, the Zyxel NWA1100-NH comes with ZON utility for administrators to assign IP addresses of multiple APs through just one platform. Administrators can save the hassle logging into each AP to change the default IP addresses before physical installation.

Zyxel AP Configurator

After deploying a number of APs, repetitive configuration for the units takes time and effort. The Zyxel AP Configurator (ZAC) allows batch AP configuration, backup and firmware upgrade in three easy steps to significantly reduce configuration time and effort.

Wireless layer-2 isolatio

The layer-2 isolation can protect the private network among client users and allow users to access the shared devices without entering the rest of private networks for enhanced security. Also, the intra-BSS blocking prevents peeping from Wi-Fi clients associated with same AP.

WPA2 enterprise certified

Zyxel NWA1100-NH has been certified with industrial strength WPA2 Enterprise protection and has wide range support of EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) types. It can be seamlessly integrated with corporate RADIUS servers.

Access control list

For company without existing RADIUS server, administrators can utilize the Access Control List (ACL) to grant or block Wi-Fi access by entering MAC addresses of the client devices.
