Designed for small offices and retail locations, the AP 6522 can handle the increasing number of Wi-Fi enabled devices and bandwidth heavy applications connecting to your wireless network. The AP 6522 is a site survivable wireless access point that does not require a controller. With it’s WiNG 5 intelligence, this access point offers higher throughput along with direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability. The AP 6522 can also serve as a virtual controller and coordinate the operation of up to 24 neighboring access points.
The AP 6522 is a multipurpose access point designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN). The access point features MIMO radios with superior receive and transmit sensitivity, a console port for configuration, 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 from employees bringing their own devices (BYOD) and supports the most demanding applications, including real-time video and voice. The embedded WiNG 5 intelligence ensures that traffic is locally forwarded along the most efficient paths without sacrificing quality of service and security implemented at the access point itself. One radio can be used for client access while the second radio is used for simultaneous client access on a different frequency band or as a dedicated sensor on both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands for security and troubleshooting.
To enable the extension of wireless network coverage to areas where ethernet cabling is cost-prohibitive or otherwise impractical, the AP 6522 can operate wirelessly, connecting to other access points for data backhaul, in a mesh topology. Enabling an array of applications over mesh, this feature offers a cost-effective way to extend the network, relying on a highly resilient, self-configuring system. Taking advantage of the dual-radio architecture and the easy-to-use configuration interface, it becomes a simple task to deploy a wireless network of access points connected securely via 802.11n, providing enterprise-class service.
Common problems such as building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement are minimalized as the SMART RF feature of the switch/controller automatically optimizes power and channel selection so each user gets always-on high-quality access and mobility.
The AP 6522 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.
The AP 6522 provides enterprise class security with layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, Wireless IPS-lite, VPN gateway, and location-based access control. The security capability of the AP 6522 is further enhanced when deployed in combination with premise or cloud-based versions of the WLAn Security Services Platform which increase the security and resiliency of AP 6522 networks with an array of advanced security and network assurance features including Spectrum Analysis, Wireless IPS, Live RF, Advanced Forensics and AP Testing to proactively identify and mitigate network disruptions.
Access points require no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Zebra wireless controller discovers access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments.
Device and network performance can be accelerated through a virtual LAN feature via the switch/controller. Each AP 6522 access point can be virtualized into four unique VLANs which can be customized to direct broadcast traffic to the intended recipient. This reduces overall network traffic while improving device performance and battery life up — to 25%. This also reduces the overall number of access points required to provide unique device services.
