Zebra AP 6522 – Dual Radio 802.11 A/B/G/N Wireless Access Point
With WiNG 5 intelligence, the Zebra AP 6522 offers higher throughput, direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability — while also serving as a virtual controller that can coordinate the operation of up to 24 neighboring access points. The Zebra AP 6522 is now part of the Extreme Wing family due to the completion of Extreme Networks Inc acquisition of Zebra Technologies WLAN Business.
Multi-Purpose — For Multiple Applications
Reduce your multipurpose access point deployment costs and enjoy secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) with the Zebra AP 6522. Featuring 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 access point delivers the speed and reliability to support increased WLAN traffic from employees bringing their own devices (BYOD), with support for the most demanding applications — including real-time video and voice. Embedded WiNG 5 intelligence ensures that traffic is locally forwarded along the most efficient paths, without sacrificing the quality of service and security implemented at the access point itself. One radio can be dedicated for client access, while the second radio provides 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.
Extend wireless network coverage to areas where Ethernet cabling is cost-prohibitive or otherwise impractical through the Zebra AP 6522’s wireless capabilities — connecting to other access points for data backhaul in a mesh topology. By enabling an array of applications over mesh, the Zebra AP 6522 offers a highly resilient, self-configuring system. With its dual-radio architecture and easy-to-use configuration interface, the Zebra AP 6522 makes it simple to deploy a wireless network of access points connected securely via 802.11n, providing enterprise-class service.
Automatic Channel and Power Optimization
Eliminate common problems like building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement with the Zebra AP 6522’s SMART RF feature as the switch/controller automatically optimizes power and channel selection — giving each user consistent, high-quality access and mobility.
The Zebra AP 6522 optimizes 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.
Experience enterprise class security with the Zebra AP 6522’s layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, Wireless IPS-lite, VPN gateway and location-based access control. Performance of this secure access point is further enhanced when deployed in combination with premise or cloud-based versions of the AirDefense Services Platform, which increases the security and resiliency of the Zebra 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.
