Purpose built for the mobile user experience 

High- performance, enterprise-grade for mission critical deployments.

The AP3825 is a high-performance 802.11ac and 802.11abgn indoor access point purpose built for high-density deployments. This access point is designed to operate in heavy-user and mission critical environments such as healthcare facilities, universities, conference centers, arenas, and stadiums. Active/active data ports and multiple power options ensure that the AP3825 provides always-on connectivity for data, high-bandwidth video applications and low-latency voice applications.

Unique to this class of access point, the power efficient AP3825 uses 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) without reducing its performance or degrading its enterprise-grade capabilities. This means that an upgrade to more expensive switches for support of the higher PoE 802.3at standard is not required thereby providing investment protection for existing switch infrastructure.
