Zyxel Networks unveils WiFi 7 BE11000 AP to supercharge WiFi for modern workplaces

New NWA130BE offers SMBs unparalleled speed and ultra-low latency with the best WiFi upgrade in years

Hsinchu, Taiwan, March 4, 2024—Zyxel Networks, a leader in delivering secure, AI-powered cloud networking solutions, has released its NWA130BE – BE11000 WiFi 7 Triple-Radio NebulaFlex Access Point. With WiFi 7-supported devices ready to go mainstream in 2024, the NWA130BE enables Small to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) to make the much-needed WiFi 7 upgrade and benefit from unparalleled network speed, capacity, and the best possible WiFi experiences.

The go-to option for WiFi 7 upgrades

The NWA130BE boasts a tri-band BE11000 architecture, supporting speeds of up to 11Gbps and doubling the bandwidth capacity of WiFi 6 through its extra-wide 320MHz channels, which are exclusive to WiFi 7 devices. It also incorporates a Qualcomm Quad-Core CPU for robust performance, and 4K QAM and Multi-Link Operation (MLO) capabilities to boost peak data rates by up to 20% and reduce latency. The NWA130BE makes WiFi 7 upgrade a breeze thanks to the two 2.5G Ethernet ports, which allow users to leverage affordable 2.5G switches and remove the need for costly re-cabling. This is an extra port than is normally provided by same-grade offerings currently on the market, giving users more flexibility in their wired network setup.

Silencing the noise

The capability to distinguish the right signal and ignore noise is the key to delivering the best WiFi performance. Thanks to its rectangular design, the NWA130BE maximizes the distance between antenna for a stronger Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) and reduced interference, which is crucial for crowded or high-density workplaces. Additionally, its exclusive RF-first design is able to minimize all potential interference, including that from nearby WiFi channels and 4G/5G mobile networks, through its Advanced RF Filter and Advanced Cellular Coexistence features.

AI-powered WiFi management and unified security

Assuring network service is essential to business efficiency and productivity, but it can become challenging when businesses scale. Seamlessly integrated with Zyxel Networks’ Nebula cloud, the NWA130BE provides businesses with central management and full visibility of their networks. Nebula’s AI-powered WiFi Aid and Wireless Health features can automatically diagnose network access issues across the entire wireless client onboarding journey and resolve common WiFi issues, saving administrators’ time on tedious troubleshooting.

Businesses can also utilize Nebula's Connect & Protect Plus (CNP+), a cloud-delivered security service directly attached to the AP. This provides users with additional protection from malware, phishing, and malicious sites. Administrators can implement security policies directly through the AP without altering existing network infrastructure.

“With the introduction of the NWA130BE, Zyxel Networks is setting a new standard for premium connectivity in business environments,” comments Mr. Kell Lin, Senior Associate Vice President of Zyxel Networks’ Networking SBU. “The NWA130BE combines cutting-edge technology with thoughtful design, delivering exceptional performance and simplified management through our Nebula platform.”
