Zyxel WiFi 6E Access Points Help Organizations Reduce Network Interference

Zyxel Networks has announced a family of 6E WiFi access points that allow businesses to take advantage of the performance benefits provided by using the newly opened 6 GHz WiFi spectrum.

Ideal for deployment in crowded and high-density environments, Zyxel’s new 6E WiFi Access Point Series includes: WAX640S-6E AXE7800 WiFi 6E Tri-Band (4×4 + 2×2 + 2×2) Point access point, WAX620D-6E AXE5400 WiFi 6E dual-band (2×2 + 4×4) access point and NWA220AX-6E AXE5400 WiFi 6E dual-band (2×2 + 4×4) access point.

WiFi 6E offers the ideal solution to WiFi spectrum congestion using the 6 GHz band which offers 2.5 times more capacity, super wide channels for bandwidth-intensive applications and no interference from microwaves and appliances no WiFi 6E. Zyxel’s 6E WiFi access points are designed to increase performance in high-density environments, such as SMBs, schools, hotels and other hospitality venues, which need to accommodate an increasing number of WiFi devices on their networks.

Each person on the network typically has multiple devices that need to be connected, such as phones, laptops, tablets, and smartwatches. Zyxel WiFi 6E Access Points provide a solution that allows organizations to meet the growing demand on their WiFi networks as more WiFi 6E clients are used.

Features and Benefits of Zyxel 6E WiFi Access Points:

  • Extended range in the 6 GHz band – Zyxel 6E Boost technology helps increase the distance covered by 6E WiFi using four 6GHz streams using a combination of finely tuned 4×4 6GHz radios, quality RF filters and optimized components, to extend the access point range and maximize device connectivity at greater distances in high-density environments.
  • Scalable Wi-Fi Solution – The WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E access points feature BandFlex, an advanced radio design that can be configured to operate in the 5 GHz or 6 GHz bands. More cost-effective than full-fledged tri-band access points, the WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E access points can be deployed to offload WiFi traffic in congested areas at 6 GHz, or they can be deployed as as 5 GHz access points and switched to 6 GHz when more compatible devices are operating in a particular area.
  • Minimize interference for maximum performance – Zyxel WiFi 6E Access Points feature an advanced RF filter with Advanced Cellular Coexistence that minimizes interference from nearby 5 GHz channels and 4G/5G mobile networks. The WAX640S-6E also includes a smart antenna that constantly monitors the connection and adaptively adjusts its antenna patterns to mitigate co-channel interference and improve WiFi performance.
  • Flexible management – WAX640S-6E and WAX620D-6E come with a one-year Nebula Pro Pack license and support Nebula standalone, controller and cloud management, providing full management flexibility in any network environment. The NWA220AX-6E can be managed as a standalone device or through the cloud with a free base pack license for Zyxel Nebula.

“Performance and connectivity issues caused by interference and congestion have long been a problem with WiFi networks, and are particularly problematic in high-density environments, and when using latency-sensitive applications such as such as VR/AR, 8K video streaming, and online gaming,” explained Shawn Rogers, Market Development Manager at Zyxel Networks. “Our family of WiFi 6E Access Points enables businesses to dramatically reduce network interference by using the new 6 GHz WiFi spectrum Zyxel’s WiFi 6E products offer extended range and management flexibility, to provide a cost-effective solution for upgrading existing WiFi infrastructures to provide reliable, multi-gigabit, low-power connectivity latency for critical applications.

The Zyxel WAX620D-6E and NWA220AX-6E WiFi 6E Access Points are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and are available now from all authorized Zyxel resellers and e-commerce partners for MSRP $399.99 and $199 $.99 USD, respectively. WAX640S-6E will be available in Q3 2022.
