Datasheet Evaluate & Buy

Overview

The AP550 is an excellent choice to provide instant adaption to ever-changing capacity and density needs. AP550 features 4x4:4 MU-MIMO with aggregate data rates up to 3.5 Gbps per access point. Software configurable radio allows IT managers to enable dual 5 GHz 802.11ac performance on both radios to provide the best of coverage and capacity Wi-Fi design and maximize ROI. Built-in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) radio enables proximity, indoor location tracking, and other location-based mobile engagement services.
