In today’s world, as businesses make capital investments in their technology infrastructure, they must have a keen eye on how those investments can improve operational efficiency. To meet the needs of budget-conscious enterprises who do not want to sacrifice performance, the AP3000/X was engineered to deliver on those requirements. The AP3000/X combines powerful 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E technology, advanced security, and ML/AI cloud management capabilities as an enterprise-class solution in a small, low-power package that allows you to deploy high speed and highly secure Wi-Fi.

The AP3000/X is a Universal and World SKU Wi-Fi 6E Wireless Access point. With Extreme’s Universal infrastructure, customers can take advantage of hardware agility and reduce the total cost of their network by adopting platforms that allow them to run multiple Extreme operating systems. This multi-persona capability provides increased product flexibility and reduced hardware obsolescence. The World SKU allows customers, partners, and distributors to order one model for any region, replacing the age-old problem of country specific SKUs. ExtremeCloud IQ geo-locates the Access Point and accurately provides it the corresponding set of channel and power specifications that the product can operate under in that country

The AP3000/X Wi-Fi 6E access point, with two 2x2:2 radios, provides high- efficiency, high-performance 802.11ax aggregate data rates up to 4.8 Gbps in the 6 GHz, 5 GHz, and 2.4 GHz bands. Designed for dense and/or harsh environments, such as classrooms, warehouses, healthcare clinics, and manufacturing, the AP3000/X is powerful and intelligent enough to provide the highest level of client services without compromising security. Despite powerful capabilities, the AP3000/X allows for flexible placement as the market’s smallest form-factor Wi-Fi 6E access point to emphasize aesthetics. The AP3000/X features a fully functional Multi-Band filter, enabling simultaneous operations with no performance degradation between all the 5 GHz frequencies and the entire range of 6 GHz frequencies (U-NII-5 thru U-NII-8 bands).*

Extreme launched the industry's first software defined Wi-Fi 6E access point supporting multiple software programmable modes to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance. The AP3000/X is a dual radio access point can transmit with two data radios: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz or 5 GHz and 6 GHz.

To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services integrates Bluetooth to connect with IoT devices to engage loyalty customers with Apple iBeacon. Enterprises can use API driven applications to send advertisements directly to shoppers, guests, and conference attendees. This makes it ideal for businesses to advertise their app download pages, captive portals, or site-specific information.

In conjunction with Extreme centralized management software, cloud or on-premises, the AP3000/X provides a rich set of data displayed via widgets, representing unlimited historical data or a combination of historical and current data. This provides context- specific granularity with perspective views for locations, network, APs, individual client devices, as well as policy roles. In each context, administrators can make a widget library.

The AP3000/X delivers the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the latest Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications. Leverage Extreme Fabric Attach to securely automate provisioning and deployment by connecting to a Fabric Connect-enabled switch. AP3000/X supports a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, tri-frequency security, and Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK), location analytics sensor and much more.

The AP3000/X is a universal hardware platform that comes with a multi-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi-Fi operating system (OS). The IQ Engine operating system, the WiNG operating system, or the ExtremeCloud IQ Controller Engine persona can be enabled as required. The desired persona can be selected at start-up or changed at a later stage. Once selected, the AP3000/X assumes the features or capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP3000/X automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The preprovisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP3000/X system, eliminating the need for manual selection.

Wi-Fi 6 ushered in a new generation of Wi-Fi. While prior generations emphasized on higher speeds, 802.11ax technology instead focused on improving Wi-Fi efficiency as well as speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level. Now, with addition of the 6 GHz band for unlicensed operation, Wi-Fi 6E has access to up to 1,200 MHz of spectrum*, which is three times that of existing 'usable' spectrum which enables improved quality of service (QoS) in dense environments, new applications and use cases, and an improved user experience.
