802.11ac Dual-Radio External Antenna 3x3 Outdoor Nebula Cloud Managed Access Point
The Zyxel Nebula NAP353 802.11ac Dual-Radio External Antenna 3x3 Nebula Cloud Managed Access Point is a high-performance outdoor 3x3 802.11ac AP capable of delivering combined data rates of up to 1.75 Gbps. Featuring dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced technologies such as Dynamic Channel Selection, Load Balancing and Smart Client Steering as well as with IP66-rated weather protection, the NAP353 delivers high throughput and reliable coverage for a superb Wi-Fi experience even in harsh outdoor environments.
Every Nebula AP has been engineered for cloud management. Based on the NETCONF standard, all data traffics between the cloud and access points are exchanged using secure transports to ensure transaction-safe configuration on all Nebula devices. Furthermore, with the intuitive management interface, administrators are able to manage all the access points quickly even without training.
The Zyxel Nebula NAP353 auto-configures itself after installation and then automatically connects to the Nebula cloud to join the network so auto-configuration, provision, monitoring and diagnostics can be performed anytime, anywhere. This simplifies network setup and enables deployment of Nebula APs to a remotely located network even by non-IT professionals.
Best-in-class coverage and performance
Different from other 802.11ac APs, the Zyxel Nebula NAP353 stands out with its best-in-class coverage and performance thanks to its unique RF design. The AP’s three-stream hardware configuration provides power of up to 29 dBm and unparalleled receive sensitivity of as low as -102 dBm.
Optimized wireless experience
The Zyxel Nebula NAP353 delivers optimized wireless experience for users with comprehensive wireless features such as Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS), Load Balancing, and Smart Client Steering, etc. DCS avoids interference from co-channeling and overlapping channels continuously, while Load Balancing and Smart Client Steering that features Band Select and Balance for more spectrum to provide more stable, reliable wireless connections.
The Zyxel Nebula NAP353 inherits the NETCONF protocol for secure configuration changes. In terms of authentication and data encryption, it supports WPA2 enterprise protection and a wide range of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types, including EAP SIM for smartphones. Besides, the NAP353 also features access control and Layer-2 isolation for privacy protection. The comprehensive security features ensure NAP353 to deliver enterprise-grade protection to the entire network.
Hardened enclosure for harsh outdoor environments
The Zyxel Nebula NAP353 operates well under harsh outdoor environments with its industrial-grade IP66 water- and dust-proof enclosure that is completely resistant to dusts and even powerful water jets and the embedded heater automatically activates to allow NAP353 to operate in the freezing below-zero temperatures. With these features, the Zyxel Nebula NAP353 is proven ideal for hotels, resorts, schools and other locations in need of high throughput, high capacity outdoor coverages.
