802.11ac Everywhere? We’ve Got You Covered

Enterprise-Grade Performance and Security For The Mobile-First World

The AP3805 is a feature rich 802.11ac and 802.11abgn indoor access point that delivers enterprise-grade performance & security without a premium cost. Designed to blend into the office, classroom or hotel environment, the AP3805 is ideal for providing secure Wi-Fi connectivity for medium-density environments.

The AP3805i comes with an integrated four antenna array for ease of installation. The AP3805e includes four RP-SMA antenna connectors supporting optional external antennas. The AP3805 uses 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) without reducing its performance nor degrading its enterprise-grade capabilities. An optional external power supply is available for deployments that do not support Power over Ethernet.

The AP3805 incorporates the latest Wi-Fi technologies including 802.11ac, dynamic radio management, and spectrum analysis with interference classification, beam forming, self-forming and self-healing meshing, WIPS security, role-based authentication, authorization, and access control. The 2×2 MIMO, 2 spatial stream, platform is capable of delivering up to 1.17Gbps over-the-air-performance and up to 40,000 packets per second on the wire port. The AP3805i comes with brackets to be installed on to most drop ceiling & wall mounts. Multiple antenna offerings (e.g., omni, sector, and panel) ensure that the AP3805e deployment can be optimized to meet any unique coverage needs.
