ZEBRA AP 6522E

DUAL RADIO 802.11A/B/G/N WIRELESS ACCESS POINT

Designed for small offices and retail locations, the AP 6522E can handle the increasing number of Wi-Fi enabled devices and bandwidth heavy applications connecting to your wireless network. The AP 6522E is a site survivable wireless access point that does not require a controller. With it’s WiNG Express intelligence, this access point offers higher throughput along with direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability. The AP 6522E can also serve as a virtual controller and coordinate the operation of up to 24 access points.

ENTERPRISE-GRADE WIRELESS FOR MIDSIZE BUSINESSES

WiNG Express brings the power of enterprise awardwinning WiNG 5 architecture to midsize businesses. With WiNG Express, smaller businesses now have access to the latest wireless technology and always-on capability trusted by large enterprises. In addition, the portfolio contains purpose built enterprise-grade products for midsize businesses that will allow customers to scale their network with their business.

WiNG EXPRESS FAST PROVISIONING

WiNG Express products can be configured and deployed in about 5 minutes. After powering on the access point, user can connect to “WiNGExpress” SSID and go to www.zebra.com/wingexpress to configure the access point. Once an access point is configured, the user can enable the virtual controller feature and let the access point configure and manage additional access points by simply adding them to the network.

WiNG EXPRESS USER INTERFACE

WiNG Express is Zebra’s powerful enterpriseclass WLAN operating system wrapped in an easy-to-use and easy-to understand graphical user interface that makes end-to-end deployment and management of WLAN network easy for midsize businesses. The user interface provides a concise menu with time tracked network and client information. As such, WiNG Express User Interface empowers smaller businesses with valuable information available to enterprise customers in a meaningful way,allowing your business to leverage wireless applications to drive business.

MULTI-PURPOSE FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS

The AP 6522E is a multipurpose access point designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) network. The access point features MIMO radios with superior receive and transmit sensitivity and a GiGE LAN/WAN POE enabled port for local or remote network connectivity. This easy-to-deploy solution delivers the speed and reliability to support the increase in WLAN traffic and supports the most demanding applications, including real-time video and voice.

AUTOMATIC REAL-TIME WIRELESS OPTIMIZATION

Common problems such as building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement are minimalized as the SMART power and channel management optimizes power and channel selection so each user gets optimal high-quality access and mobility.

HIGH RELIABILITY

The AP 6522E is designed to optimize network availability through its central and pre-emptive intelligence which 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.

VIRTUAL CONTROLLER

The AP 6522E allows network services to scale securely without configuring additional access points. When enabled, virtual controller automatically configures its peer access points on the local network and allows users to manage all access points from a single access point. Meaning customers can scale their wireless network up to 25 access points on the same network without the need to configure each access point individually.
