Zebra Technologies’ New Enterprise-Class Access Points Boost Wireless Network Performance and Actionable Insights

Zebra AP8432 and AP8533 offer greater network support for mobile devices, location-aware customer engagement and the ability to connect with any third-party Internet of Things network

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – July 19, 2016 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), a global leader in providing solutions and services that give enterprises real-time visibility into their operations, today introduced two new access points (APs) offering greater network performance, stronger customer engagement and Internet of Things (IoT) support for organisations in industries including retail, hospitality, healthcare, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing. By embedding dedicated sensors that collect data across the entire expanse of the network, the new enterprise-class AP8432 and AP8533 access points offer "Visibility that’s Visionary,” delivering actionable insights and secure connections in a cost-effective way.

KEY FACTS

  • With 802.11ac Wave 2 APs from Zebra, enterprises can deliver a dramatically higher density network with the sensors needed to measure, monitor and secure each connection.
  • The AP8432 and AP8533 includes Zebra’s Triple Sensor Technology which can automatically ward off RF interference and security risks, push relevant contextual offers and services to consumers and provide strategic-shaping analytics.
  • Zebra’s Triple Sensor Technology is comprised of three integrated powerful sensors – a dedicated network sensor, Bluetooth® sensor and RF spectrum sensor – that can optimise security, customer engagement and network performance. Unlike other sensors that can only scan part-time, the dedicated, dual-band 802.11ac sensor continuously scans for rogue devices.
  • The AP8432 features built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE-out), enabling it to connect to IP video cameras, wireless temperature sensors or any other third-party IoT network. 
  • Both the AP8432 and AP8533 are integrated with Zebra’s WiNG5 intelligent distributed architecture, and future support for Zebra’s Azara Cloud networking solution will offer unparalleled scalability and ease of deployment.
  • Zebra support services are available to ensure every phase of the WLAN lifecycle is optimised from planning and implementation to post-deployment.
