Dual-Radio 802.11a/b/g/n Mesh Wireless Access Point

Designed for extending Wi-Fi coverage to outdoor areas, the ExtremeWireless WiNG AP 6562 provides a cost-effective means of supporting the most demanding wireless applications and a large number of wireless devices. Ideal for distribution centers, hospitality, retail, and education campuses, the AP 6562 can handle the increasing number of Wi-Fi enabled devices and bandwidth-heavy applications
connecting to your wireless network.

The AP 6562 access point is designed to help lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable, and targeted outdoor wireless network, all powered by the ExtremeWireless WiNG 5 architecture. Choose from two models: an integrated antenna model for fast wall mounting or an external antenna model for pole mounting and remote wireless backhaul.

The access point features dual 802.11n 2×2 radios with superior receive and transmit performance, a console port for configuration, and a GiGE LAN/WAN PoE-enabled port for local or remote network connectivity. With its ExtremeWireless WiNG 5 intelligence, this access point seamlessly extends your network to the outdoors with higher throughput along with direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability.

Access Point Use/ApplicationsRuggedized high performance 802.11n outdoor access point with high speed convergence MESH Connex technology. Ideal for outdoor deployments of retail, hospitality, distribution centers and transportation and logistics.

High Performance Dual-Radio Design
The AP 6562 is an independent, dual-radio access point designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN outdoor. The AP 6562 features dual MIMO radios with superior receive and transmit sensitivity. One radio can be used for client access while the second radio is used for simultaneous client access on a different frequency band or as a dedicated sensor for security and troubleshooting. The AP 6562 is a site-survivable wireless access point that does not require a controller and can act as a virtual controller coordinating the activities of 24 neighboring access points.

Gap-Free Security
The AP 6562 provides enterprise-class security with layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, Wireless IPS-lite, VPN gateway, and location-based access control. The security capability of the AP 6562 is further enhanced when deployed in combination with premise- or cloud-based versions of the Extreme AirDefense Services Platform, which increase the security and resiliency of AP 6562 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.

Improve Your Guest Experience
Deploying a simple outdoor extension to the indoor wireless network comes naturally with AP 6562, allowing hospitality customers the ability to reach outdoors with applications targeted toward guest experience and concierge, expedited check-in and valet, or revenue generation in pool and guest access areas.

Fast and Easy Zero-Touch Deployment
The AP 6562 requires no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The ExtremeWireless WiNG controller discovers access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments. With internal and external antenna SKU options, the compact and aesthetic design provides more choices for mounting locations.
