Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Indoor Access Point with integrated or external antenna options

The AP 305C/CX are indoor enterprise APs based on a new system-ona-chip (SoC) with two built-in dual-band radios providing the best value with Wi-Fi 6 high efficiency. You have your choice of models with either integrated or external antennas. Advanced radio technology delivers 802.11ax 2x2:2 data rates up to 2.4 Gbps concurrently on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. These 2x2:2 APs continue the Extreme tradition of software-selectable radios (SSRs) capable of dual 5 GHz connectivity for indoor and industrial environments.

Priced for the mass-market, this enterprise-grade access point is ideal for budget-conscious enterprises who do not want to sacrifice performance.

The AP 305C/CX comes in an aesthetic design and can fit in the palm of your hand. Both models are eco-friendly APs partially made from recycled materials. Also included is an integrated light sensor and integrated power meter to help conserve power consumption*. The easy install ceiling mount for quick installation and unique way to hide the Ethernet cables for an aesthetically pleasing installation.

Despite the exponential growth of users, BYOD devices, IoT, highbandwidth applications and security threats straining the infrastructure, the AP 305C/CX combines performance, security services and insightful ML/AI management capabilities to deliver an enterprise class solution at a value price.




The AP 305C/CX delivers the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the latest Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications. Additionally, the AP 305C/CX supports a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) and much more.


Wi-Fi 6 Technology

Prior generations of 802.11n, 802.11ac wave 1 and 2, can be considered generational improvements with an emphasis on faster speed. 802.11ax technology instead enhances Wi-Fi efficiency as well as speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level.

Programmable Radios

Extreme launched the industry's first software defined 802.11ax access point supporting not only a dual 5 GHz capability but also two software programmable modes to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance. The AP 305C/CX intelligent monitoring of the software- configurable radios enables network managers to configure network RF technology based on user environment and configure the access points in different modes as required.


Management Analytics

In conjunction with Extreme Management system, cloud or on-premises, the AP 305C/CX provides a very rich set of data displayed via context driven widgets, representing historical data or a combination of historical and current data. This provides contextspecific granularity with perspective views for locations, network, APs, individual client devices, as well as policy roles. In each context, administrators can adjust dashboards make a widget library.


RF Monitoring

Network managers will appreciate a powerful choice of RF management for their Wi-Fi networks, with Adaptive RF management with AI/ML-like functionality. Adaptive RF algorithms provide intelligent selection of the best channels and transmit power for unimpaired dual 5 GHz operation. Load balancing, band steering and many other attributes of the RF can all be automated.


Integrated BLE and USB Port

To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services the AP 305C/CX integrates Bluetooth to connect with IoT devices wireless to engage loyalty customers with Apple iBeacon. Enterprises can use API driven applications to send advertisements directly to shoppers, guests, and conference attendees. This makes it ideal for businesses to advertise their app download pages, captive portals, or site-specific information.
