Blazing-Fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi Speed and Throughput in Your Most Challenging Outdoor Environments—All at a Low Cost
If you need to provide wireless network access in outdoor areas, you not only need an access point built for the outdoors, you also need the power and performance of 802.11ac to handle today’s bandwidth-heavy applications, but cost has been an issue—until now.
Introducing the ExtremeWireless AP 7562 802.11ac outdoor access point from Extreme Networks, purpose-built to meet the demands of your outdoor spaces. On the outside, the AP 7562 offers a rugged housing built to handle anything from rain, snow, and hurricane-force winds to sub-zero temperatures. On the inside, you get all the power you need to provide high-performance, seamless, reliable, and secure wireless access for even the densest user populations.
The 802.11ac radio provides four times the bandwidth of ‘n’ for blazingfast speed, regardless of whether users are viewing schematics, placing a video call, or accessing information in a business applications. The 802.11n radio ensures backward compatibility with all your existing user devices. The advanced ExtremeWireless WiNG 5 operating system provides the advanced intelligence required to create a “fully network-aware” WLAN, where all the infrastructure in your WLAN works together to determine the most efficient route for every transmission. Self-healing, automatic failover and site survivability ensure superior network uptime—even if the backhaul connection is lost. And if you need sensor capability, the AP 7562 can meet just about any business need—a single AP 7562 can function as both a sensor and an access point for maximum cost-efficiency, or as a dedicated sensor for the most robust sensing functionality.
The AP 7562—delivering superior Wi-Fi performance in all of your outdoor spaces.
Blazing-Fast 802.11ac speed for unmatched performance on all of your applications
802.11ac technology builds on 802.11n, delivering up to four times the bandwidth through new technology advancements. 3X3 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) allows 3-spatial streams of data to be sent simultaneously to a single mobile device, substantially improving bandwidth efficiency and utilization. 256 QAM modulation gives the 802.11ac radio an additional performance boost, and works hand-in-hand with MIMO technology to boost the bandwidth of the 802.11n radio to 802.11ac speeds. Since 802.11ac operates only in the 5 GHz band, interference from 2.4 GHz devices is finally eliminated—from Bluetooth® headsets to microwave ovens. The result? Your WLAN can support an unprecedented number of users and applications—including voice and video—allowing you to confidently deploy Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives and empower new workgroups with mobility.
Easy migration to Fifth-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi
The dual-radio AP 7562 provides the simplest path to next generation Wi-Fi. The 802.11ac radio readies you to support new 5 GHz mobile devices, while the 802.11n radio ensures support for all existing mobile devices—including 2.4 GHz clients. The radios work together to allow you to migrate to 802.11ac at your own pace—without the high cost of “rip and replace”.
While the AP 7562 can be adopted by an ExtremeWireless WiNG controller for remote control and management, it can also function as a stand-alone access point. Even if an adopted AP 7562 loses its connection to the wireless controller due to a wired network or T1/E1 line backhaul problem, your users can stay connected.
Protect Your Network and Your Data with Gap-Free Security
The AP 7562 secures all your wireless transmissions, ensuring compliance with the government or industry regulations your business may be subjected to—from PCI in retail to HIPAA in healthcare. Your network is protected every second of every day with comprehensive integrated security features that include layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, a VPN gateway, and location-based access control.
More Robust Wireless Connections
The AP 7562 provides your users with a more robust wireless connection than ever before, thanks to improved beamforming. Beamforming creates the most efficient path for data transmission between an access point and a mobile device. Until today, the transmitting beamformer worked alone to define this path. Now, the receiver also assists, a process known as sounding. The result is a stronger connection and faster data transmission, improving application throughput and performance, as well as mobile device battery power.
Flexible WIPS Sensor Support
You choose how you want to implement sensing to support Extreme AirDefense Network Assurance features. While you can always choose to deploy an AP 7562 as a dedicated sensor, Radio Share and Off-Channel Scan features work hand-in-hand to allow either or both radios to carry client data and act as a sensor, providing dual-band sensing without adding cost.
Voice, Locationing, and Guess Access
Support for Voice-over-Wireless LAN (VoWLAN) quality of service (QoS) ensures toll-quality calls, 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. And with the ability to prevent access to unauthorized networks, sites, and applications, you can easily provide hotspot and guest access.
The AP 7562 can be adopted by WiNG controllers or Extreme WiNG Azara Cloud for easy centralized management, allowing you to easily add capacity as your business grows. No matter how many access points and controllers you need or where in the world they are located, you can deploy, monitor, troubleshoot and manage them all from a single location.
Patented MeshConnex™ Protects Network Performance and Uptime
As the leader in outdoor mesh networks, Extreme Networks puts over 200 patents to work for you in our AP 7562 access points. Our unique routing engine, MeshConnex™, ensures superior uptime and site survivability, along with the highest possible data rate in challenging outdoor environments—at all times. MeshConnex™ dynamically senses weak or failing signals, securely moves mobile users to alternate APs, and boosts signal power to automatically fill RF holes and ensure uninterrupted mobile user access. And since mesh eliminates the need to install fiber and wires between buildings, on campus grounds, and in business parks and large outdoor areas, the cost and complexity of your WLAN is reduced.
