High-Density Network
Our true 802.11ac Wave 2 access point, along with the high-density optimization in ExtremeWireless WiNG 5, maximizes the value of MU-MIMO. The AP 8533 supports hundreds of wireless clients and concurrent transmissions critical for any enterprise.

Unmatched Performance
Using the Integrated Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine, along with the Extreme NSight™ Platform, the AP 8533 tirelessly optimizes the network to extract every bit from the airwaves. From RF errors to key performance indicators, the AP 8533 collects data to measure, monitor, and secure application performance. Thanks to its intelligent distributed architecture—ExtremeWireless WiNG 5—it can proactively adjust to deliver the fastest, most reliable experience.

Unrivaled Scalability from 1 to Cloud
With a modern, WiNG 5 distributed operating system, the AP 8533 offers four deployment modes to meet any requirement: stand-alone AP, virtual controller mode for creating networks of up to 64 access points, NOC controllers scaling to 25,000 access points, or virtually unlimited scalability via Extreme Azara Cloud.

Expanded Capabilities with Extreme’s Triple Sensor Technology
Access more possibilities with the AP 8533. The AP 8533 has integrated three powerful sensors that optimize security, customer engagement, and network performance.
