Zyxel crowned for innovative WiFi 6 product at Taiwan Excellence Awards

Breakthrough access point recognized for making superfast wireless possible for SMBs worldwide

Hsinchu, Taiwan, November 24, 2022—Zyxel Networks, a leader in delivering secure and cloud-powered networking solutions, has been recognized for its industry leadership in releasing empowering and innovative products, receiving a Taiwan Excellence Award for its NWA50AX access point.

The honor for the WiFi 6-powered, dual-radio PoE AP was presented at a ceremony in Taipei on November 23 and takes Zyxel’s total Taiwan Excellence Awards prize haul to nearly 100.

Organizers said this year’s winning products all shared the common characteristic of innovation, in particular leveraging 5G, AI, big data, IoT, and VR to address customers’ needs and pain points – an observation echoed by Kell Lin, Senior Associate AVP of Zyxel’s Networking SBU.

“Zyxel has been among the first in the industry to develop WiFi 6 products and bring them to market,” Lin said. “We have made superfast WiFi accessible to SMBs worldwide who wouldn’t have had the expertise or budget for it otherwise. This has meant unlocking huge potential previously trapped behind slow speeds.”

“The fact this is now the 17th time we have been recognized at these awards also highlights our long-term dedication to innovation,” he added. “It’s exceling in every aspect, from R&D to quality control, that has enabled Zyxel to be such a frequent winner.”

Big performance for small businesses

The NWA50AX is specifically designed to bring affordable business-class WiFi 6 networking to small businesses and SOHO users. The dual-radio 802.11ax wireless AP supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies to deliver 25 percent faster speeds and maximize WiFi efficiency by allowing simultaneous transmission for multiple clients to eliminate air time contention.

Able to set up with a few clicks and managed remotely via the Nebula cloud, the NWA50AX requires no networking expertise and can be easily installed and configured by everyone in small hotels, coffee shops, home offices, or boutique/retail stores, making it super easy to set up guest and employee network on their own to enjoy the ultra-fast WiFi 6 speeds in no time.

The AP’s recognition at this year’s Taiwan Excellence Awards is the latest in a string of high-profile honors for Zyxel, which was recently named a ChannelPro SMB All-Star in the U.S. and received a European MSP Innovation Award.

Mr. Alex Lin, Product Marketing Manager of Zyxel Networks received the award on behalf of the company
