802.11 b/g/n Long Range PoE Access Point

Long-range, Powerful and Optimal Wi-Fi Connectivity for Businesses

In the so-called BYOD trend, more than 80% of employees use at least one personally owned mobile device such as smart phones or tablets for business; however data transmission with these mobile devices is sometimes unstable because of their weak output power. To be the best accommodate mobile devices in the network, the new ZyXEL NWA1100-NH 802.11 b/g/n Long Range PoE Access Point features high output power and antenna gain to optimize wireless coverage and signal quality
