ZyXEL WAC6503D-S 802.11ac 3x3 Smart Antenna AP (no PSU)      

The ZyXEL WAC6503D-S is a smart antenna access point that has industry-leading RF output power and sensitivity combine to offer greater coverage and performance over traditional networks, making Zyxel’s WAC6500 Series the ultimate one-to-one AP upgrade choice

ZyXEL WAC6503D-S Key Features

  • Dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11ac Wireless Access Point
  • Ideal for high-density and interferenceladen indoor environments
  • Advanced IEEE 802.11ac delivers up to 1.75 Gbps combined data rates
  • Industry-leading receive sensitivity as low as -102 dBm
  • APFlexTM, DCS and tool-less bracket design streamline deployment
  • Zyxel One Network is supported

As well as Zyxel Smart Antenna technology, the WAC6500 Series includes several other new features including the innovative APFlexTM, tool-less mounting bracket, and many other software enhancements such as the Zyxel One Network utilities, making the WAC6500 a complete product designed to streamline network installation and speed deployment for the best possible WiFi experience.

Breakthrough Smart Antenna technology for any environment

The WAC6500 Series of 802.11ac APs delivers industry leading performance, thanks in part to its innovative Smart Antenna design. Featuring more than 700 optimized antenna patterns, the Zyxel Smart Antenna continuously calculates the ideal physical-layer path for each individual client. This feature not only offers the best possible signal by shaping to various patterns, but it also mitigates interference from other wireless clients. The WAC6500 Series’s ultra-fast capabilities makes it perfect for delivering premium performance in interferenceladen environments, such as conference rooms, airports, educational facilities and other high-density venues. And the series’ enhanced adaptability further simplifies oneto-one AP replacement.

Best-in-class coverage and performance

In a WiFi market crowded with 802.11ac APs, the WAC6500 Series stands out with regard to performance and coverage due to its unique RF design. The AP’s threestream hardware configuration provides power of up to 30 dBm while providing unequaled receive sensitivity as low as -102 dBm. The Zyxel Smart Antenna doubles the WAC6500 Series’ performance over conventional internal antennas, and performs three times (3x) better than legacy 802.11n APs.

Easy and instant deployment with APFlexTM, DCS, and tool-less bracket design

Zyxel APFlexTM eases installation by resolving the managed/standalone AP mode configuration, automatically integrating into the network environment with or without Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), eliminating the need for pre-installation preparation. Other helpful features include Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS), avoid the interference of cochannel and overlapping channel at initialization. In addition to software solutions, the WAC6500 Series’ simplifies installation through creative design features. For example, the universal and tool-less bracket design allows for flexible ceiling track mounting without the need for special tools. From software to hardware, the WAC6500 Series makes setup and operation fast and simple.
