Designed for indoor medium density venues such as SMBs, hotels, and schools, the ZAP-680 is ZDC’s highest performance 802.11ac wireless access points combining smart antenna technology.Different from other 802.11ac and 802.11n APs on the market, the ZAP-680 smart antenna technology enables a new level of performance and provides extended range, reliable connectivity and consistent performance at range.
The ZAP-680 combines smart antenna technology to deliver consistent performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 5dB of antenna gain and up to 23dB of interference mitigation.With a maximum data rate of 1.3 Gbps in the 5-GHz band and 450 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band, the ZAP-680 access point is up to three-times faster than 802.11n APs and provide performance similar to a wired connection.
Besides performing as a stand-alone access point, the ZAP-680 can be centrally managed by ZDC AP Controllers for large installations. When managed by AP controllers, the ZAP-680 provides centralised data traffic forwarding and local data forwarding, plus wireless network configuration, security encryption, network authentication as well as user access policies. With optimised performance, functionality and reliability, the ZAP-680 Smart Access Point sets the new standard for enterprise wireless technology to help ensure an high speed, and the best possible end-user experience on the wireless network!
Smart antenna beam switching technology selects the best transmission path per client among 64 antenna patterns, plus delivers up to 5 dB of added signal gain enabling the ZAP-680 to optimize range, performance and reliability for all clients with no client configuration needed.
Support of 802.11ac and three-stream MIMO 3×3:3, the ZAP-680 delivers high speed data rate of up to 1300Mbps in the 5-GHz band and 450 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band. It is nearly 3 times faster compared with other 802.11n Access Points.
The ZAP-680 offers a variety of operating modes to meet your network management and deployment requirements. It can be flexibly deployed as a standalone wireless Access Point or as a managed Access Point controlled by ZDC AP controllers. When managed by the AP controller, each ZAP-680 is automatically configured, making deployment quick and easy.
The automatic channel selection and transmit output power adjustment, combining advanced interference mitigation technology delivers up to 23 dB of interference, optimising Wi-Fi client performance and ensure that APs stay clear of RF interference.
