Lightning-fast next-generation technology

The Zyxel EX5501-B0 supports the WiFi 6 (11ax) standard to offer lightning-fast throughputs of up to 6000 Mbps and wireless speeds of up to 4.8Gbps on the 5GHz band and 1.1Gbps on 2.4GHz.

Maximized network capacity for more devices

Supported by the unique uplink MU-MIMO, the Zyxel EX5501-B0 allows subscribers to enjoy multiple interactive applications such as VR/AR and video streaming at once with minimum latency. Moreover, the revolutionary Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) improves average throughputs with considerably minimized latency and increased network efficiency.


Dedicated 2.5GbE WAN and LAN port for Multi-Gig internet access

With one 2.5GbE WAN port, Zyxel EX5501-B0 is perfect for extending premium fiber service to subscribers’ homes. Besides lightning fast WiFi 6 technology and the standard four 1GbE LAN ports, the Zyxel EX5501-B0 is equipped with one additional 2.5GbE LAN port that satisfies subscribers’ bandwidth-intensive needs with optimized bandwidth utilization.


High interoperability facilitates flexible deployment

The highly interoperable Zyxel EX5501-B0 facilitates network service upgrades to the latest WiFi 6 standards. This provides superior network capacity without replacing existing fiber infrastructure, all while winning customer satisfaction and minimizing CAPEX.

Premium MPro Mesh® for whole-home WiFi coverage**

Featuring EasyMesh fully compliant Zyxel MPro Mesh® Solutions, the Zyxel EX5501-B0 enhances subscribers' connectivity experience by providing self-adapting, easy-to-manage whole-home WiFi coverage, while reducing your service OPEX.


Faster software development and less operating system risks

Zyxel ZyEE is a secure and future-proof Linux kernel-based execution environment, also known as a container. ZyEE creates a predictable environment isolated from other applications for software developers and service providers to develop, enable, install, and uninstall third-party applications without risking the core operating system. ZyEE’s portability and scalability enhance software development agility by providing broader compatibility with various hardware environments. In addition, the compact and structurally simple ZyEE optimizes system computing resources. With ZyEE, service providers can deliver new features to subscribers with reduced time-to-market while remotely managing services through existing ACS servers.

Zyxel OPAL firmware realizes the flexibility and faster time to market

Compliant with the same OPAL firmware trunk applied in all Zyxel CPEs, the EX5501-B0 inherits a rich, field-proven feature set including TR-069 and more. Service providers can ensure the same user experience after migrating to new devices.
