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 and reduce cost. 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 AP460C is part of Extreme’s Universal Wi-Fi platforms and provides users the choice of Wi-Fi operating system (IQ Engine or WiNG Operating System). Customers have the flexibility to select the OS at start-up or at a later stage and the AP will assume the features/capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP460C automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP460C AP and the user can stay in the cloud or select manage the device locally.
The AP460C is a Tri Radio based on advanced radio technology delivers 802.11ax and is designed for harsh environments; from hurricane force winds to sub-zero temperature. The AP460C is IP67 outdoor rated and extends Extreme’s Wi-Fi 6 coverage outdoors in a sleek form factor with three different antenna models: AP460C is based on internal Omni antenna, AP460S6C is a internal 60° Sector, and the AP460S12C is based on a 120° Sector for the most challenging outdoor deployments.
The AP460C is based on Wi-Fi 6 Tri-Radios design delivers 802.11ax 2x2:2 data rates on 2.4 GHz and 4x4:4 data rates on 5 GHz concurrently on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios and a 3rd radio for a dedicated full time dual banded sensor. The Tri-Radio APs continue the Extreme tradition of software-selectable- radios (SSRs) capable of dual 5 GHz connectivity for outdoor harsh environments. The AP460C combines powerful 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology, advanced security and ML/AI management capabilities together into an enterprise class solution that allows you to deploy high speed, highly secure Wi-Fi into the toughest environments.
To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services the AP460C integrates Bluetooth to connect with IoT devices with Thread wireless or 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 management system, cloud or On-premises the AP460C provides a very rich set of data displayed via context driven widgets, representing 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 adjust dashboards from widget library.
Industry's first tri-radio 802.11ax access point with two software selectable radios to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance while simultaneously providing continuous RF monitoring for security threats. The AP460C intelligent monitoring of the software selectable radios enables network managers configure network RF topology based on user environment and configure the access points in different modes as required.
The AP460C delivers the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the latest Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications. Additionally, supporting a stateful L2- L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security.
The AP460C as a universal hardware platform comes with adual-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi-Fi operating system (OS). Either the IQ 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. Once selected, the AP460C assumes the features/capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP460C automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP460C system, eliminating the need for manual selection.
Prior generations of 802.11n, 802.11ac wave 1 and 2, can be considered generational
improvements with an emphasis on faster speed. 802.11ax technology instead enhances
Wi-Fi efficiency as well as speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level. To
