To Wi-Fi users, it is not uncommon to have bad experience on Wi-Fi performance, and antenna design plays an important role while evaluating wireless performance. Today, most access points on the market are designed with single static radiation pattern, typically for ceiling-mount. When an AP with ceiling-mount pattern is installed in wall-mount scenario, its signal coverage does not fit for wall-mount deployment. Adapting an AP with external antenna may be the alternative option, however, external antenna installation requires know-how for antenna selection, and would look awkward for interior decoration. A flexibly installed Wi-Fi AP with optimal performance and stylish outlook is a prerequisite today, but a satisfactory solution has been missing for a long time.
ZyXEL’s WAC6103D-I is a high performance 3-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi AP featuring ultra-fast speeds of up to 1.75 Gbps with ground-breaking “dualoptimised” antenna design. Via the innovative adjustable antenna setting, the WAC6103D-I provides the best signal coverage fitting for either ceiling-mount or wall-mount deployments. Even better, the stylish, ultra-slim industrial design perfectly blends into modern decorations. Choose WAC6103D-I for constant, no-compromise Wi-Fi performance.
Superior Gigabit Wi-Fi performance with innovative “Dual-optimised” antenna
Ceiling-mount installation is the most common type of wireless deployments, and it is not surprising that most APs on the market are designed with single static radiation pattern for ceiling-mount installations. In wall-mount scenarios, the ceiling-mount radiation pattern would create interference with devices on upper and lower floors, meanwhile it delivers short-range signal for wireless clients at the AP front. Choosing an AP with external antenna may be the alternative option for wall-mount installation. However, the installation usually requires professional knowledge for antenna accessory selection and signal coverage fine-tune.
Designed with the innovative “Dual-optimised” antenna, the WAC6103D-I adapts to both wall- and ceiling-mount installations. To boost Wi-Fi speed of your network, WAC6103D-I is definitely an excellent choice.
Ultra-slim, stylish outlook aesthetics blends into environments
The WAC6103D-I inherits the stylish honeycomb product design of ZyXEL WAC6500 Series; its low-profile white blends perfectly into all kinds of decorations in many buildings with extraordinary modern tastes. The compact and elegant aesthetics makes WAC6103D-I flexible for different decors – no matter to be outstanding or just invisible.
Streamlined deployment tools save valuable time
WAC6103D-I features APFlexTM to simplify managed/standalone AP mode configuration and to be integrated into the network environment automatically, which eliminates the need for pre-install preparation. Also, the ZWO (ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer) Utility allows IT managers to perform AP planning, coverage detection and wireless health management centrally. ZWO’s user-friendly presentation saves time and facilitates quick response to the network problems.
ZyXEL One Network experience
Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, ZyXEL One Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our customers to focus on the business priorities. ZyXEL One Network presents an easy-to-use tool, ZyXEL One Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. ZyXEL Smart Connect allows ZyXEL networking equipment to be aware and recognise each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. ZyXEL One Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway.
Optimized wireless experience with advanced feature settings
WAC6103D-I ensures to deliver optimized wireless experience for users with a range of wireless features such as Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS), Load Balancing, and Smart Client Steering etc. Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) avoids the interference of co-channel and overlapping channel at initialisation. Load Balancing enables administrators to set limits on the number of clients associated with each AP. Furthermore, Smart Client steering features with Band Select, Signal Threshold and Band Balancing for stable and reliable wireless connection. Band Select and Signal Threshold monitor the capabilities of each wireless client and steer them to the less congested band and better signal AP. Band Balancing detects dual-radio clients and distributes clients across 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands on AP. With these technologies, the WAC6103D-I delivers smooth, consistent and uninterrupted wireless access experience.
