802.11ac Dual-Radio AP — Deliver Cost-Effective In-Room High-Speed Wi-Fi Service Over Your Existing In-Room Telephone Lines and Take Service to the Next Level

You need to provide in-room Wi-Fi access in your large campus environment — but the cost of installing a WLAN that can deliver dependable service in hotel rooms, dorm rooms, or assisted living apartments has been prohibitive. Now, you can provide high-speed Wi-Fi services and more in the largest campus-style environments quickly, easily, and cost-effectively with the TW-522. An integral component in the Extreme Networks T5 system, the TW-522 delivers high- performance Wi-Fi access over your existing in-room telephone line — no CAT5 cabling required. With 802.11ac, you get maximum speed and maximum bandwidth to support all of your users and all of their many mobile devices. And the TW-522 installs in minutes, right over the existing wall plate. The TW-522 — the easy way to deliver high-speed in-room Wi-Fi service in record time — with minimal costs.

Access Point Use/ApplicationsTW-522 is the latest wireless Wallplate for the T5 PowerBroadband family. Leverages the telephone-grade wire already in the walls of your building to transform old copper wire into a high-speed network for extended wireless and wired networks. Designed for rapid and tamper-proof installation, the TW-522 is an affordable option to support higher capacity growth of network devices and new hotel services.

Patented Industry-Leading Technology
The TW-522 utilizes standard VDSL2 in conjunction with Extreme’s TS 524 switch includes patented Line Power over VDSL to deliver superior in-room Wi-Fi performance over your existing in-room telephone wire.

Dual Radios to Meet Increased Capacity Demands
Not only is there a dramatic increase in types of mobile devices, there is also an increase in the number of devices per user — a guest or tenant often has a smartphone and tablet or laptop computer. No matter how many devices you need to support, the TW-522 is ready for the job. Dual radios enable concurrent support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz mobile devices. And the 802.11ac radio increases the wireless network capacity and growth to support up to four times more mobile devices than typical legacy networks.

“Invisible” Design Blends into Your Environment
The TW-522 hides in plain sight in the room — designed to cover the existing phone jack, it blends right into the wall.

All the In-Room Connections You Need
In addition to 802.11n Wi-Fi access, the TW-522 provides two 10/100MB managed Ethernet ports and a pass-through RJ-11 port for an in-room analog telephone.

Installation Is a Snap
Installation is fast and easy. All you need is a screwdriver — no special tools or in-room CAT5 wiring are required.

“Set It and Forget It” Technology
Once installed, the TW-522 is powered, adopted, provisioned, and monitored by the TS-524 PowerBroadband Switch located in the central wiring closet. For integration into a large managed network with different types of access points, the TS-524 PowerBroadband Switch can be managed in the Network Operations Center through ExtremeWireless WiNG NX 7500, NX 9600, or VX 9000 controllers. In both scenarios, the RF environment is constantly monitored and optimized in real time for best performance — no need to worry about ongoing maintenance, updates, or outages on a room-by-room basis.

The snap-on Wall Plate access point is completely self-contained, with a double-latch design and no accessible cables. Even the LEDs can be turned off remotely to avoid disturbing the tenant or hotel guest.
