The AP3801i is a feature rich, single radio 802.11ac or 802.11bgn indoor access point (AP), ergonomically designed to blend into any environment. It is an ideal solution for providing secure 802.11ac or 802.11bgn connectivity for low-density and price sensitive deployments.

The AP3801i comes with an integrated antenna array for ease of installation and a consistent RF footprint. The AP can be powered via 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) or an optional external power supply.

The AP3801i is built on the latest Wi-Fi technology including 802.11ac, dynamic radio management, and spectrum analysis with interference classification, beam forming, self-forming and self-healing meshing, security, role-based authentication, authorization, and access control. The 2×2:2 platform is capable of delivering up to 867 Mbps over-the-air-performance and up to 40,000 packets per second on the wire port. The AP ships with brackets that address most drop ceiling and wall mounting installations.

Business Alignment
  • Support for demanding voice/ video/data applications to enhance mobile worker productivity and convenience
  • Role-based grouping of users, devices, and applications
    to deliver priority, QoS, and security in accordance with business needs
  • Seamless roaming across
    an entire multi-subnet campus without the need for cumbersome client software
  • Integrated management, security, and QoS features reduce operating cost and ensure a consistent user experience regardless of location
Operational Efficiency
  • Centralized visibility and control from Extreme Control Center accelerates problem resolution, optimize network utilization, and automate management
  • Adaptive architecture reduces complexity and optimizes information flow for
    each application
  • Dynamic Radio Management when used for planning and monitoring ensures optimal spectrum coverage resulting in the best end-user quality
    of experience
  • Flexible Client Access optimizes throughput for 802.11ac/n clients in today’s mixed ac, n, and a/b/g client environments
Security
  • Authentication and authorization functions include role-based access control (using 802.1X, MAC, and captive portal) and authentication at the AP
  • Wireless Intrusion Prevention (WIPS) functions provide continuous scanning, threat classification, rogue AP detection, and countermeasures against possible attacks
  • Integration of security policies (NAC, IPS) across the wired/ wireless networks enables quick diagnosing and resolution of security threats
  • Integration of Policy Manager across the wired/wireless networks dynamically oversees user access at the wireless network point of entry
Support and Service
  • Industry-leading customer satisfaction and first call resolution rates
  • Lifetime warranty for indoor access points
  • Personalized services, including site surveys, network design, installation, and training
