Extreme Networks AP245X
High Performance 802.11ac Wave 2 Dual-Radio 3x3:3 Access Point with External Antennas

Extreme Networks AP245X

Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.


This power optimized AP line uniquely incorporates 802.11ac, integrated BLE radio for iBeacon (and other beacon applications), and a standard USB port for a variety of IoT applications. AP245X smoothly integrates into your existing 802.3af or 802.3at power and network infrastructure.

The AP245X benefits from an AI-driven Wi-Fi architecture capable of self-organizing, self-healing, and self-optimizing connectivity in the most challenging environments, helping eliminate single points of failure and data bottlenecks. Underlying the AP245X is a powerful operating system driving a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, advanced and customizable QoS for traffic optimization, intelligent meshing algorithms, Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) security, and much more. In addition, the integrated BLE radio and a USB interface in the access point opens up a multitude of deployment use-cases in IoT and proximity/ location-oriented services.

  • Dynamic mesh backhaul

Secure Network Access

  • Broad range of authentication modes for all devices from Corporate to IoT
  • Integrated enterprise protection mechanisms including WIPS and VPN


Advance Security

This access point delivers the highest level of security services, including a fully stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, Private PreShared Key (PPSK) authentication, on-board RADIUS services, WIPS, VPN tunnelling, and much more.

Management Analytics

In conjunction with Extreme’s management system, this access point provides a rich set of data displayed via context driven widgets, detailing historical data and real-time analytics. This provides context-specific granularity with perspective views for locations, network, network devices, individual client devices, as well as policy roles. In each context, administrators can adjust dashboards from the widget library.

Automated Deployments

Powered by cloud networking, this access point can easily be deployed alongside thousands of others in no time at all. Extreme’s management system provides granular templates and auto provisioning to enable centralized enterprise plug-and-play rollouts.

Performance Optimization

With a performance optimized operating system, this access point works collectively with neighboring devices to fine tune overall network health for connected clients, utilizing a granular, customizable QoS engine that adjusts performance based on user, device, and application privileges.

RF Monitoring

Adaptive RF algorithms provide intelligent selection of the best channels and transmit power for unimpaired network access. Load balancing, band steering and many other attributes of the RF can all be automated. In addition, administrators can view network health through Extreme’s management system.

Integrated BLE and Zigbee

To support both IoT and guest engagement services this access point integrates Bluetooth to connect with IoT devices or engage loyalty customers with beacon services. Enterprises can use Google Eddystone 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.
