Extreme Networks is adding a new family of purpose-built 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6E) Access Points (APs) for stadiums to its Smart portfolio, that support more users and IoT devices with greater performance and efficiency.

The 6 GHz radio is enabled outdoors in the United States and uses Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC). 6 GHz AFC ratification and certification varies by region.

Key Benefits Include:

Harsh Outdoor and Stadium Optimized: As the Official Wi-Fi Solutions Provider of the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB), Extreme understands firsthand the unique challenges of stadiums and harsh outdoor high-density Wi-Fi deployments. The IP67-rated AP5050 Series builds on that experience, by delivering a custom-designed family of access points that cater specifically to these types of challenging environments.

High Performance in High Density Environments: Improve user experience and device performance with 4x4:4 6 GHz, 4x4:4 5 GHz, and 4x4:4 2.4 GHz with OFDMA technology. With the latest Wi-Fi 6E performance and multiple software programmable radio modes, AP5050 series can serve the densest environments.


To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services, the AP5050U and AP5050D integrate 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 Management system, cloud or on-premises, the AP5050U and AP5050D provide 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, and policy roles. In each context, administrators can adjust dashboards from a widget library.

The AP5050U and AP5050D deliver 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.

Leverage Extreme Fabric Attach to securely automate provisioning and deployment by connecting to a Fabric Connect-enabled switch. AP5050U and AP5050D support a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, tri-frequency security, 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 AP5050U and AP5050D are tri-radio access points that can transmit with three data radios or with two data radios and a dedicated tri-frequency sensor. The AP5050U and AP5050D intelligently monitor 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 AP5050U and AP5050D are universal hardware platforms that come with a dual-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi-Fi operating system (OS). Either the IQ Engine operating system or the ExtremeCloud IQ Controller Engine operating system persona can be enabled as required. The desired persona can be selected at startup or changed at a later stage. Once selected, the AP5050U or AP5050D assumes the features or capabilities of the selected OS. When first powered on, the AP5050U or AP5050D automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The preprovisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP5050U or AP5050D system, eliminating the need for manual selection.

Wi-Fi 6 ushered in a new generation of Wi-Fi. While prior generations emphasized higher speeds, 802.11ax technology instead focused on improving Wi-Fi efficiency and speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level. With the 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.
