|Superior, Integrated Modern In-room Services for Higher Customer Satisfaction|
Typical Wi-Fi deployments in a hotel usually place access points in hallways and hidden plenum spaces; the main purposes are to prevent theft and to avoid design disagreement between the high-tech AP and tasteful hotel interior design. However, this commonly seen deployment method and the hotel building structure usually disrupt Wi-Fi service to cause unnecessary complaints from customers. The NWA5301-NJ with innovative wall-plate design has been conceived to provide Wi-Fi services from one room to another. To provide modern services for hotel guests, the NWA5301-NJ integrates PoE and phone connectivity in a box to extend services with minimized investment. ZyXEL’s unified AP design enables NWA5301-NJ to perform as a stand-alone access point or a controller managed AP to provide deployment and management alternatives.
Rapid universal wall-plate deployments
The ZyXEL NWA5301-NJ has the best-of-breed deployment feasibility. Compliant with the most commonly used outlet box standards, the ZyXEL NWA5301-NJ can be mounted with the majority of outlet boxes to provide high-quality in-room Wi-Fi coverage. An exquisite mounting plate is attached to the NWA5301-NJ for fast installation while the strong mechanism also prevents easy theft. The NWA5301-NJ also comes with Ethernet punch-down interfaces that facilitate speedy device fitting to minimize business downtime.
Superb mobile-optimized RF performance
The NWA5301-NJ adopts 802.11n technology to provide bandwidths of up to 300 Mbps. The implemented premium 11n features, including maximum likelihood, allows the NWA5301-NJ to eliminate dead spots in its coverage for the best network efficiency. In hotel environments today, most users use mobile devices to access the network. As the devices have lower signal power by nature to sustain longer battery life, APs are less likely to pick up data sent from the devices comparing to which from laptops. The NWA5301-NJ comes equipped with well-placed high-gain antenna to maximize the RF pattern for optimized performance communicating with mobile devices. With all the advanced RF design, the NWA5301-NJ can significantly reduce complaints and increase satisfaction from customers.
Extending modern in-room services with a box
Nowadays, hotel owners provide guests with a range of services including phone, IPTV and network for home-like comfort. For this purpose, each room would require several cables or a switch; both could not only need more investment but also a longer construction period that inevitably affects the hotel business. More than just a Wi-Fi AP serving high-speed networks, the NWA5301-NJ has additional RJ-45, PoE and RJ-48 phone pass through ports to connect different kinds of devices such as PCs, fax machines, printers, set-top boxes, and phones with ease. The PoE port enables deployment of Power Devices (PD) like VoIP phones without electric outlets and power cables. The NWA5301-NJ fulfills all kind of connectivity requirements to provide great in-room services.
Comfortable and considerate network services
With experience and expertise in the hospitality industry for years, ZyXEL implemented several thoughtful designs in NWA5301-NJ. The LED of NWA5301-NJ features a so-called “suppress mode” which stops blinking after system initialization is done; this gives the room guest a comfortable space with peace-of-mind. Moreover, the AP status can be checked with this LED indicator with a simple click of a button. To prevent leaking of personal data, layer-2 isolation can be enabled in NWA5301-NJ so the users can only access shared services and peripherals such as hotel fax machines and are blocked from reaching other guest devices in the hotel. All these superior designs of ZyXEL NWA5301-NJ help hotel businesses to provide integrated in-room services with quick, best-in-class installation and to facilitate deployment and management.
