Zyxel WAX650S

02 January 2020

Designed to ease congestion in high density areas, a new range of WiFi 6 (11ax) access points has been introduced by Zyxel.

Led by the WAX650S, they are said to be able to support a large group of devices simultaneously.  They use WiFi 6, or high efficiency wireless, the latest iteration of wireless technology, which offers faster speeds, greater capacity and reduced latency.

Zyxel says its use of a smart antenna and spatial reuse technology means that the WAX650S boosts network performance and overcomes network interference more powerfully than other WiFi 6 APs.

It also includes 5Gb Ethernet support and WiFi 6 standard multi-gig speed for faster wireless and dedicated scanning radio which allows for all-time monitoring of network issues without affecting WiFi quality. And optimised hardware design is said to enable the AP to better interference.

The 11ax APs also integrate with the company’s NebulaFlex platform and includes a one-year pro-pack license.  This means, says Zyxel, that users – particularly schools – benefit from cloud networking and can remotely manage their systems without a dedicated IT team.
