Mumbai: Zyxel Communications, announced a new 802.11ac Wall-Plate Unified Access Point,WAC5302D-S, specifically tailored for hotels, campuses, townships and enterprises to deliver exceptional guest Wi-Fi experiences in multi-room, interference prone environments.
While consumers now see fast, free Wi-Fi as the top amenity when choosing a hotel, hoteliers still face challenges implementing Wi-Fi solutions. A recent study suggests that 65% of consumers have had to rely on 3G/4G at some point due to poor Wi-Fi in their hotel. In most cases, poor Wi-Fi experience results from lesser number of wireless access points in suboptimal positions or unevenly distributed web traffic.
The Zyxel WAC5302D-S is equipped with a world leading hardware design which allows it to be installed anywhere for best Wi-Fi signal and in-room deco. It can be mounted directly on an outlet box, wall, desktop, or out of sight with no additional kits required. With the built-in Ethernet and PoE ports, it can also connect and supply power to other in-room services such as smart TV or IP phone.
It’s no surprise that even in hotels or schools where wireless APs are in every room, interference can cause Wi-Fi speeds to lag. With the WAC5302D-S, the smart antenna and beam-forming technology will dynamically customize signal direction for each individual device, creating the best path to deliver Wi-Fi signals while mitigating interference from neighboring APs.
“Today people expect 24/7 connectivity whether at work or travelling, and having seamless Wi-Fi has become the vital enabler for better user experiences,” commented Crowley Wu, Senior AVP of Zyxel Networking Business Unit.
“As the networking ally for businesses, Zyxel understands the struggles facing business owners. With the one-of-the-kind design of the WAC5302D-S, we wanted to help both guests and business owners solve their pain-points from installation to connectivity and help them to do more with better Wi-Fi,” he added.
