The AP5010 is an Enterprise Universal and World SKU Wi-Fi 6E Wireless access point, enabling flexible deployment for on-premises or cloud, and simplified sales ordering process. The World SKU allows customers, partners, and distributors to order one model for any region, replacing the age-old problem of country specific models. 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 AP5010 Wi-Fi 6E access point, with three 4x4:4 radios, provides high-efficiency, high-performance 802.11ax aggregate data rates up to 10 Gbps in the 6 GHz, 5 GHz, and 2.4 GHz band. Designed for high density environments, such as schools, warehouses, healthcare facilities, and stadiums, the AP5010 is powerful and intelligent enough to provide the highest level of client services without compromising security. Despite powerful capabilities, the AP5010 can operate with fully-functional Wi-Fi capabilities using 802.3at PoE, simplifying power capacity planning.

With more users, more devices, more applications, and more threats straining the infrastructure, the AP5010 was engineered to meet those challenges. The AP5010 combines powerful 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E technology, advanced security, and ML/AI management capabilities together as an enterprise-class solution that allows you to deploy high speed, highly secure Wi-Fi into high-density environments.

Unlike other access points that scan only part-time, the AP5010 features a dedicated tri-frequency sensor that monitors for rogue devices full time, eliminating the risk of vulnerability and attacks. This tri-radio AP is capable of multiple operating modes, optimizing for maximum performance without trading off security. The AP5010 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).*

To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services, the AP5010 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 AP5010 provides a rich set of data displayed via context driven 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, and policy roles. In each context, administrators can adjust dashboards using a widget library.

The AP5010 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. Additionally, the access point 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.

Extreme launched the industry's first software defined Wi-Fi 6E access point supporting two software programmable modes to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance. The AP5010 is a tri-radio access point and can transmit with three data radios or with two data radios and a dedicated tri-frequency sensor. The AP5010 intelligently monitors the software-configurable radios, enabling network managers to configure network RF technology based on the user environment and configure the access points in different modes as required.

The AP5010 as a universal hardware platform comes with a muti-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi-Fi operating system (OS). The ExtremeCloud IQ operating system, the ExtremeCloud IQ Controller Engine operating system, or the WiNG operating system persona can be enabled as required. The desired persona can be selected at start-up or changed at a later stage. After you select the persona, the AP5010 assumes the features or capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP5010 automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP5010 system, eliminating the need for manual selection.

Wi-Fi 6 ushered 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 and which enables improved quality of service (QoS) in dense environments, new applications and use cases, and an improved user experience.

By utilizing the additional 6 GHz spectrum offered by Wi-Fi 6E, the AP5010 operates across three times as much spectrum as previous generations of Wi-Fi to deliver enhanced wireless experiences, faster speeds, and less interference.
