SIMPLIFY AND REDUCE THE COST OF WIRED AND WIRELESS NETWORKING IN YOUR BRANCH OFFICES
To best serve your customers, your workers need mobile access to voice and data. Until today, delivering those services required multiple networking appliances in each branch office — each with its unique management interface. Now, with the NX 4500/6500 Integrated Services Platform, you can extend not only wired and wireless networking, but also telephony services, support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, plus the most advanced mobile applications — all with a single appliance and one management interface. The result? Connecting your branch office workers is easier and costs less. Workers have more services to better serve your customers. Network management is easier than ever before. And your network can easily support next generation capabilities as they are introduced, improving the lifecycle and return on investment for your network infrastructure.
The NX 4500/6500 is a single flexible appliance that delivers rich, secure and high-performance voice and data services to branch locations. The set of standard services includes a router, firewall, Virtual Private Network (VPN), AAA Radius server to authenticate users, as well as a DHCP/DNS server delivering wireless services with trusted always-on wired network reliability. Unified Retail Communications services enable cost effective telephony services on wired SIP desksets and wireless voice-enabled devices. You can also seamlessly integrate additional optional Zebra services into your existing mobility solution for extraordinary workforce collaboration, regardless of whether workers are inside or outside the facility. Services include enterprise push-to-talk (PTT) and texting between Zebra mobile computers, business Voice over WLAN smartphones, two-way radios and third-party smartphones — including the Apple® iPhone®. And these services can be delivered over Wi-Fi or cellular networks. The result? One appliance. More capabilities.
The NX 4500/6500 provides the gap-free security needed to secure all your wireless transmissions and provide compliance for government and industry regulations — such as HIPAA in healthcare and PCI in retail. A tiered approach protects and secures data at every point in the network, wired or wireless. Our comprehensive integrated network security services include: a wired/wireless firewall, a built-in wireless intrusion protection system (IPS), an integrated IPSec VPN gateway, AAA Radius Server and secure guest access with a captive web portal. Additional security features include MAC-based authentication, 802.11w to secure management frames, NAC support, anomaly analysis and advanced security services, such as role-based firewall, geofencing and rogue termination. You get less infrastructure, less cost, and comprehensive inside-the-wall and perimeter security at every remote site.
The integrated WiNG 5 WLAN controller in
the NX 4500/6500 delivers unmatched WLAN
performance, scalability and flexibility, providing
your users with a new level of wireless service quality,
reliability and security. In this third-generation WLAN
architecture, all access points and controllers are
network aware, able to work together to collectively
determine the most efficient route for wireless
traffic, as well as enforce Quality of Service (QoS)
and security policies.
The NX 4500/6500 provides the tools you need to simplify and minimize the costs associated with real-time management of the wireless LAN in the branch office. The WiNG 5 architecture offers a single management interface for all network hardware, software configurations and network policies, as well as built-in process monitors and troubleshooting tools for all the adopted access points.
In addition, your WLAN can easily scale as you grow to accommodate new users and applications. Each NX 4500 supports up to 72 802.11a/b/g/n WiNG 5 access points. And the NX 6500 supports up to 264 802.11a/b/g/n WiNG 5 access points — ideal for larger deployments. You can choose from Zebra's WiNG 5 independent and dependent single, dual or tri-radio access points — and all WiNG 5 access points have the intelligence to directly manage traffic, as well as enforce QoS and security policies at the edge.
Now, you no longer need to add new hardware to support every application — you can simply host your third-party applications on the NX 4500/6500. The integrated virtual machine (VM) framework provides the collaboration and visibility required between network infrastructure and application services to optimize application performance and the end user experience. Since this platform addresses latency and jitter, you can enable real-time applications, including voice and video. Onboarding, quarantine and proxy/relay mobile device management capabilities combine to enable a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program throughout your distributed enterprise. You can even host streaming video, either as a store-and-forward unit or a messaging server.
With the Zebra NX 9500, you can manage all your NX 4500/6500 Integrated Service Platforms and the services they provide from a single graphical interface, either through your Network Operations Center (NOC) or a private cloud. The management system makes it easy to manage your entire distributed network — up to 10,000 network elements. As a result, overall network management is dramatically simplified, minimizing the required number of IT resources — and cost.
With the NX 4500/6500, the average branch needs 75 percent fewer appliances, reducing the average capital expenditure for a branch network by 50 percent. Operational expenses are also slashed. There is less infrastructure to manage and a single simple management interface instead of many, reducing staff, space and power requirements. And with our layered approach, no forklift upgrade is required — you can add to your existing network, preserving and improving the return on investment for your existing technology.
As a leader in enterprise mobility, Zebra brings experience gained from working all over the globe with some of the world’s leading companies. We leverage this expertise to offer solutions to our branch office customers that meet the peak performance needs of their business. Our comprehensive portfolio of services offers assistance at every phase of network lifecycle — from planning and implementation to post-deployment everyday support. Our services help you reduce risk, lower your capital investment and operational costs, improve service delivery and tailor your network to meet your specific needs.
Give your branch office employees more tools to maximize efficiency and customer service quality with the branch office network that costs less.
