Efficiently estimating the number of APs needed and fast deployment of stable, high quality Wi- Fi coverage are two unavoidable challenges for every WLAN installation scenario. Monitoring and maintaining the health of the wireless network after deployment is equally important and usually can consume a lot of effort. In order to simplify the planning, deploying and maintaining, the ZyXEL Wireless Optimizer works in unison with the NXC2500. The Wireless Optimizer provides a pre-installation AP planning function and after installation delivers innovation that allows your WLAN Access points to act as Wi-Fi sensors to perform coverage detection that simplifies and speeds up deployment. The AP Wi-Fi sensor also provides a wireless quality index, and can be visualized into the Wi-Fi quality MAP within the Wireless Optimizer Application, where the maintenance and optimization of the Wi-Fi deployment is no longer an 'invisible' and incredibly complicated challenge. The ZyXEL NXC2500 comes with a range of advanced RF management functions that minimizes administrator efforts for optimized Wi-Fi quality and performance. The auto channel selection function can provide continuous, automated RF optimization to relieve administrators from the need to worry about channel settings and to determine the right channels. AP load-balancing parameters can also be set to distribute traffic, while the number of served clients among multiple APs can also be detected to improve overall efficiency. The ZyXEL NXC2500 uses comprehensive authentication methods to manage Wi-Fi accessibility for laptops, tablets or other mobile devices with AD, LDAP or RADIUS authentication servers. The NXC2500 also provides a built-in RADIUS server, captive portal server and DHCP server. It has the capability for fully customizable portal pages allowing you to deploy secured employee and guest access without the need for any additional servers and the user friendly guest account generator can dynamically create user accounts for guests at reception or as easily by the business office administrators. The flexible, powerful, yet friendly design all helps to demystify the professional Wi-Fi deployment and make the implementation of business class Wi-Fi easy.
