Enterprise-grade indoor and outdoor wireless (WiFi) access points which form the basis for great network coverage and unbeatable capacity.
An integral part of any professional wireless network, enterprise-grade wireless access points (APs or WAPs) offer businesses robust connectivity, security and resilience.
As the demands put upon today’s wireless networks continues to grow, the industry’s leading wireless access point vendors have developed increasingly innovative and advanced technologies to ensure not only rapid WiFi experiences but the mobility and connectivity desired by the modern workforce.
802.11ac Wave 2 access points
The latest IEEE WiFi standard (802.11ac) is predominate amongst most of today’s enterprise-grade wireless access points and offers businesses notable performance improvements on its 802.11n predecessor (although it is worth noting that .11ac APs are backwards compatible).
Wave 2 Beamforming
More than simply a marketing ploy, beamforming technology allows modern access points to achieve unprecedented levels of signal strength, enabling businesses and organisations to build high-capacity networks with more cost-effective numbers of access points.
In response to the growing density of professional wireless networks, wave 2 802.11ac access points feature Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Out (MU-MIMO). The main reason for this development is to facilitate multiple simultaneous conversations between multiple users whilst maintaining both the performance and, above all, the usability of the wireless network.
