Description

The All-in-One, Intelligent WLAN Controller
Delivering a good wireless LAN service that stands up to the demands of connecting users to the rapid evolution application is not easy. The latest BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), mobility and smart handheld technology all present scalability, manageability and functionality challenges to business Wi-Fi installations. To enable businesses to addressing these challenges ZyXEL has developed the NXC2500, an all-in-one, intelligent Wireless LAN Controller. The ZyXEL NXC2500 is designed to provide resellers and businesses with a solution that works as an AP planning, deployment, monitoring and maintenance solution while offering management, authentication and guest access within an all-in-one device.

The ZyXEL NXC2500 Wireless LAN Controller supports the management of the ZyXEL Unified,Unified Pro and NWA5000 Managed Series of Access Points to provide complete wireless LAN functions for the business. As standard the ZyXEL NXC2500 supports the initial management of 8 APs and provides scalability with a maximum supported total up to 64(1) APs, the "pay-as-you-grow" principle provides reassurance and future proofing for small and medium-sized businesses, hotels and educational institutes to implement secured, centralized wireless LAN networks.

Adaptive and resilient Wi-Fi deployments with ZyMESH technology
Surpassing the mesh networking technology, ZyMESH creates wireless mesh links with easy configuration, better management and enhanced reliability. ZyMESH eases extending Wi-Fi coverage to places where cabling is difficult. In addition, each repeater APs can have multiple route selections to provide high resilience achieving non-stop Wi-Fi service. In the past, administrators had to assign channel and MAC addresses in each AP while setting up a WDS link to extend Wi-Fi service; now they can make initial provision and centralized management with ZyMESH and ZyXEL NXC2500 controller to manage and deploy networks easily.

Enhanced RF management and WLAN optimization
All wireless networks face a major challenge: ensuring Wi-Fi clients get service levels they’d need. The difficulty to resolve is that different kinds of Wi-Fi clients exist on the network, and these users tend to make their own connectivity and roaming decision.

The ZyXEL NXC2500 features with advanced WLAN optimization technologies that help administrators monitoring and maintaining health of the wireless network easily. Client steering utilizes functions of band steering and client signal threshold to match every Wi-Fi client to the best radio of the best AP. Band steering sets 5 GHz as the first priority to optimize network connectivity for dual-band clients. Client signal threshold ensures all clients connect to the APs with stronger signal. Auto healing is another WLAN optimization function that deployed APs detect status of nearby APs and adjust power automatically while failure occurred in neighboring AP. Auto healing provides reliable and always-on wireless coverage. The ZyXEL NXC2500 also features dynamic channel selection to optimize Wi-Fi quality and performance while minimizing administration efforts by auto, instant channel selection.

Authentication with simplified management
The ZyXEL NXC2500 uses comprehensive authentication methods to manage Wi-Fi accessibility for devices with AD, LDAP or RADIUS authentication servers. The NXC2500 also provides a built-in RADIUS server, a captive portal server and a DHCP server to facilitate small and medium businesses deploying secured employee and guest access services without any additional server. The user-friendly guest account generator can dynamically create user accounts for guests at reception or equally easy by office administrators. The NXC2500 also supports applying external customized portal pages which largely benefit the access authentication in hospitality venues like hotels. Also, with IETF standard-based CAPWAP, secured communication can be established between the NXC controller and access points without changing the existing LAN infrastructure. The NXC2500 can offer a secured Wi-Fi network with easy installation for your business.

(1) Management of 64 APs is supported with firmware version V4.10 or above
