Enterprise-grade performance and security at an attractive price.

The AP3705i is designed for environments where connectivity and style are a must. Blending into any classroom, retail, or hospitality environment is key to providing seamless and ubiquitous connectivity. Optimized for drop ceiling deployments, the 2×2:2 platform is equipped with an integral four-antenna array with beamforming, capable of supporting 600Mbps over-the-air performance and up to 40,000 packets per second on the wire port. The AP3705i comes with integral clips allowing the AP to be installed directly onto most drop ceilings right out of the box. With power consumption of less than 9W when fully loaded, this is a great fit for your environment.
