AP 7532 802.11ac ACCESS POINT

MAXIMUM SPEED. MINIMUM COST.

GET BLAZING 802.11ac Wi-Fi SPEED AND THROUGHPUT TO SUPPORT ALL YOUR USERS AND APPLICATIONS — ALL AT A LOW COST.
You need more out of your wireless LAN — you need to support more wireless users and more of today’s extremely demanding voice and data applications. You need the ultimate performance and bandwidth that 802.11ac can deliver, but cost has been an issue — until today. Now, you can get maximum 802.11ac performance at a minimum cost with the Symbol AP 7532. The AP 7532 is packed with a comprehensive feature set that delivers today’s fastest available Wi-Fi speeds. No matter how many users are on your WLAN or what applications they are using, they can count on dependable blazing desktop-style speed. The next generation 802.11ac radio delivers up to four times the speed of 802.11n. The 802.11n radio ensures backward compatibility with every mobile device in use in your operation today — and advanced technology helps boost the bandwidth of the 802.11n radio to 802.11ac levels. If you need sensor capability, you get the flexibility to meet different business needs — you can deploy a single AP 7532 as both a sensor and an access point for maximum cost-efficiency, or as a dedicated sensor for the most robust sensing functionality. No matter where you need 802.11ac speed, the AP 7532 will fit right in, from customer-facing public spaces to the warehouse floor. 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 that will deliver maximum range and performance in demanding industrial areas. And with our high-powered radios, you’ll need fewer access points. The result? Maximum capacity and performance for your wireless LAN — at a new low cost.

UNMATCHED BANDWIDTH FOR UNMATCHED NETWORK AND APPLICATION PERFORMANCE

802.11ac technology builds on 802.11n, delivering up to four times the bandwidth through new technology advancements. 3X3 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) allows 3-spatial streams of data to be sent simultaneously to a single mobile device, substantially improving bandwidth efficiency and utilization. 256 QAM modulation gives the 802.11ac radio an additional performance boost, and works hand-in-hand with MIMO technology to boost the bandwidth of the 802.11n radio to 802.11ac speeds. Since 802.11ac operates only in the 5 GHz band, interference from 2.4 GHz devices is finally eliminated — from Bluetooth® headsets to microwave ovens. 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 7532 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 are improved, along with mobile device battery power.

GAP-FREE SECURITY

The AP 7532 secures all your wireless transmissions, ensuring compliance with the government or industry regulations your business may be subjected to, such as PCI in retail and HIPAA in healthcare. Your network is protected every second of every day with comprehensive integrated security features that include layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, a VPN gateway and location-based access control.

FLEXIBLE WIPS SENSOR SUPPORT

You choose how you want to implement sensing to support AirDefense Network Assurance features. While you can always choose to deploy an AP 7532 as a dedicated sensor, Radio Share and Off-Channel Scan features work hand-in-hand to allow either or both radios to carry client data and act as a sensor, providing dualband sensing without adding cost.

VOICE, LOCATIONING AND GUEST ACCESS

Support for Voice-over-wireless LAN (VoWLAN) quality of service (QoS) ensures toll quality, even with many simultaneous calls on a single access point. In addition, you can leverage locationing services to locate and track people and assets, as well as control network and application access. And since you can prevent users from accessing authorized networks, sites and applications, it’s easy to provide hotspot and guest access.

THE ZEBRA ADVANTAGE: A TURBOBOOST FOR PERFORMANCE AND SUPERIOR SCALAbILITY

Since the AP 7532 802.11ac Access Point is part of our WiNG 5 family of WLAN infrastructure, it is “network aware”, able to work in concert with all other Zebra WiNG 5 controllers and access points to define the route that will enable the fastest and most robust path for every transmission. And since the AP 7532 can be adopted by our controllers for easy centralized management, your network is easy to scale. No matter how many access points and controllers you need, or where in the world they are located, you can deploy, monitor, troubleshoot and manage them all from a single location. No matter how many users you need to support today or tomorrow, you get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your network is always ready and waiting.

SUPPORT SERVICES BRING OUR EXPERTISE RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR

Reduce risk, lower your capital investment and reduce operational costs with from-the-manufacturer support services. Our family of services can help you get and keep your WLAN up and running at peak performance by providing the assistance you need at every phase of network lifecycle — from planning and implementation to post-deployment everyday support.

The AP 7532 — Blazing and affordable 802.11ac desktop-style wireless speed.
