EASILY DELIVER COST-EFFECTIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY IN PUBLIC-FACING MICRO-CELL ENVIRONMENTS
Whether you are responsible for a hotel, assisted living facility, dormitory housing or an apartment complex, you are challenged with providing high-speed Internet access in a challenging environment with many rooms — rooms with RF-blocking walls, floors and doors. You need a cost-effective way to provide the dependable desktop style wireless speeds your users expect in-room on however many consumer mobile devices they may own — including 2.4 GHz and the newer 5 GHz smartphones and tablets. To further complicate the challenge, today’s users are watching videos, making video calls and posting on multi-media heavy social networking websites on their mobile devices — all bandwidth-heavy applications that require a latency- and jitter-free connection.
Introducing the easiest way to solve these big business problems — the AP 7502, the pocket-sized 802.11ac access point. The AP 7502 is purpose built for public-facing micro-cell environments such as hotel and patient rooms, classrooms and apartments. The dual 802.11n and 802.11ac radios, five internal antennas, plus a host of Zebra-only features provide a dependable high-performance wireless connection for every user and every mobile device in the room. Its revolutionary small size makes it easy to install anywhere, while the understated design allows it to easily hide in plain sight. Deployment couldn’t be easier or faster — the AP 7502 can be installed in just a few minutes, with zero-touch automatic configuration. And locationing support, including Bluetooth® SMART, opens the door to a world of applications that can help provide users with a world-class experience that will put your organisation a step above the competition.
With its dual 802.11n and 802.11ac radios, the AP 7502 supports all the mobile devices that walk through your door, from legacy 2.4 GHz devices to today’s new 5 GHz consumer smartphones. The next generation 802.11ac radio empowers your network with fifth generation Wi-Fi — more than double the throughput of 802.11n — helping provide the capacity and speeds your network needs to handle multiple devices running multiple bandwidth-hungry applications.
This little access point is equipped with big business features that provide your users with the seamless enterprise-class wireless services they expect. Two features that are optimized for micro-cell environments work hand-in-hand to eliminate RF interference and the resulting degradation of the quality of the wireless connection that can occur. Adaptive RF Power automatically detects nearby access points and adjusts output power as needed, while Automatic Channel Selection ensures the selection of an unused or least used channel. And three features prevent too many users or traffic overload from reducing the quality of service on a specific AP 7502. Load balancing monitors the number of users on any specific access point and when needed, works with RoamAssist to override any “client stickiness,” ensuring clients can roam to an access point that will provide a better signal. Pre-emptive roaming can work hand-in-hand with Roam Assist to provide a mobile-phone-style fast and seamless roaming experience.
Installation is literally a snap – just mount the bracket wherever you like and snap the AP 7502 into the bracket. If desired, a decorative trim plate can be snapped on over the AP 7502 to add a more polished look for devices that are installed in visible areas. With 802.3af/at PoE support, the need to run expensive cabling to provide power to the AP 7502 is eliminated. And with true zero-touch provisioning, the AP 7502 is automatically discovered and configured — no hands on required.
Since the AP 7502 is readily accessible to guests and patients, we made it virtually tamper-proof. Once the AP 7502 is snapped into its metal bracket that is mounted to the wall, it cannot be removed without a special tool. For additional security, you can also bolt the AP 7502 directly to the metal bracket with a special torque screw that also cannot be removed without a special tool. And to make the tiny AP 7502 even harder to spot, You can also turn off the status LED lights via the central controller.
With integrated support for Bluetooth SMART, Wi-Fi locationing and Apple’s iBeacon, you can connect to user mobile devices when they are in the room to extend special discounts and other valuable information, strengthening the customer relationship and providing a true competitive advantage. In addition, you can automatically track nearby assets that are enabled with locationing tags, allowing you to spend less time managing assets, yet have better visibility into asset location and status.
Not only does the AP 7502 provide wireless connectivity, it can also power a wide variety of equipment. With 802.3af compatible PoE out, you can easily provide power to an IP security camera, a Voice-over-IP phone, another access point, a dedicated environmental sensor and more, all without the expense of running power cables.
Choose the management mode that best meets the needs of your technology environment. The AP 7502 can be easily managed and adopted by a Zebra wireless controller. With virtual controller mode, one AP 7502 can adopt up to 24 additional AP 7520 access points by simply logging into one AP 7520 and clicking on a single checkbox — ideal for smaller organizations that don’t require or want a wireless switch. In addition, the AP 7502 can also operate in standalone mode, where it can be managed individually, ensuring the continuation of wireless services — even if the connection to the centralized controller is lost.
