Support the performance demands of your busy network with the Extreme Networks AP8232 dual radio 802.11ac with channel agility that maximizes performance to accommodate a wide range of client devices with mixed capabilities. Snap-on expandability allows you to add up to two modules to the base for added flexibility, such as environmental applications and security features.
Now, with the Extreme Networks AP8232 access point, you can easily accommodate the growing number of mobile devices as well as increasing mobile application complexity, with a performance boost capable of delivering data at desktop speeds. The AP 8232’s next generation 1.3Gbps 802.11ac radio empowers your network with fifth generation Wi-Fi — up to four times the speed of 802.11n — while its 802.11n radio ensures backward compatibility with every mobile device in use in your operation today. Add a modular design that supports a wide range of additional capabilities through plug and play modules — from 3G/4G/LTE redundant backhaul to intrusion protection — and you have a multi-function access point that supercharges your WLAN with a new level of capacity, a new level of performance and a new level of flexibility.
802.11ac technology builds on advances of 802.11n, offering up to four times the bandwidth through additional technology advancements. Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) enables data to be sent in multiple streams (known as “spatial streams”) to a single device simultaneously to better utilize bandwidth. While MIMO exists in both 802.11n and 802.11ac, the bandwidth per spatial stream is nearly tripled, increasing from 150Mbps in 802.11n to 433Mbps. In addition, interference from 2.4 GHz devices is finally eliminated. Since the Zebra AP8232 access point with 802.11ac operates only in the 5 GHz band, Bluetooth® headsets, microwave ovens and more will no longer impact Wi-Fi network performance.
EASILY ADD ENHANCEMENTS TO SUIT YOUR NETWORK NEEDS – THE AP 8232 IS DESIGNED FOR VERSATILITY
The innovative modular architecture of the AP 8232 allows you to add new capabilities by simply snapping on up to two modules to the base. This plug-and-play experience includes security to maintain an intrusion-free network as well as compliance with government regulations in industries such as healthcare and financial services.
Add-ons also assist with environmental issues, such as energy usage. When the lights have been shut down at your facility for the evening, a sensor can trigger the automatic power down of the access point to a low-power, energy-saving mode.
VOICE, LOCATIONING AND GUEST ACCESS
The AP 8232 supports Voice over wireless LAN (VoWLAN) quality of service (QoS), providing toll-quality even with many simultaneous calls on a single access point. In addition, you can leverage locationing services to locate and track people and assets, as well as control network and application access. You can also ensure users are only able to access authorized networks, sites and applications, making it easy to provide hotspot and guest access.
BUILD TEMPORARY NETWORKS WITH CONFIDENCE
The AP 8232 is easy to install and maintain for short-term use. With its enhanced security features and versatile add-ons, this is an ideal solution for construction sites, temporary network access points, or mobile public health facilities.
