AFFORDABLE 5TH GENERATION WI-FI FOR ANY ENVIRONMENT

802.11AC WI-FI SPEED AND THROUGHPUT — ALL AT A LOW COST.
Introducing the AP 7522E from Zebra, delivering 802.11ac speeds at half the cost of many of its competitors. Now, you can support virtually any of the mobile devices on your network running today’s demanding applications, with a design that fits right in to any area in your environment. The 802.11n radio ensures backward compatibility with every mobile device in use in your operation today — and 256 QAM modulation boosts the bandwidth of the 802.11n radio to 802.11ac levels. Choose internal antennas for a sleek understated look that is ideal in customer facing or carpeted office areas, or external antennas that allow you to choose the antennas you need to achieve maximum range and performance in demanding industrial areas.

ENTERPRISE-GRADE WIRELESS FOR MIDSIZE BUSINESSES

WiNG Express brings the power of enterprise award-winning WiNG 5 architecture to midsize businesses. With WiNG Express, smaller businesses now have access to 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, the 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

INTERFACEWiNG Express is Zebra’s powerful enterprise-class 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.

THE BANDWIDTH AND APPLICATION PERFORMANCE YOU NEED TO SUPPORT ALL OF YOUR USERS

802.11ac technology builds on advances of 802.11n — the 802.11ac radio delivers more bandwidth and faster speeds through new technology advancements such as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO). 256 QAM modulation gives the 2X2 MIMO 802.11ac radio an additional performance boost, and increases the bandwidth of the 802.11n radio to 802.11ac speeds. In addition, interference from 2.4 GHz devices is finally eliminated. Since 802.11ac operates only in the 5 GHz band, Bluetooth® headsets, microwave ovens and more will no longer impact Wi-Fi network performance. 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 5TH GENERATION 802.11ac WI-FI

The dual radio AP 7522E 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 — and without the high cost of “rip and replace.”

MORE ROBUST WIRELESS CONNECTIONS

Your users will experience 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 that enables faster data transmission. Application throughput and performance is improved, along with mobile device battery power.

The AP 7522E — the power of 802.11ac wireless speed, at a new low cost.
