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 will be disabled until the Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) regulations are ratified and certified. 6 GHz AFC ratification and certification varies by region. Initial release of the product will be outdoor deployment only.
Key benefits Include:
Harsh Outdoor & 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 most dense environments.
To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services, the AP5050U and AP5050D integrate
Future-Proof with Wi-Fi 6E: With built-in 6 GHz radios, Extreme AP5050 series increases device capacity and improves spectral efficiency, allowing stadiums and high-density environments to extract more out of the Wi-Fi spectrum and future-proof their network and investment. The AP5050 series comes with multipurpose GPS capabilities, allowing it to detect regional location for approved Wi-Fi 6E outdoor use.
Modular Design for Flexible Deployment: Extreme’s experience has taught us there is no one-size-fits-all solution for stadiums and complex outdoor environments. From the field to bowl seating, to gate entrances, to concierge areas, to parking lots, temporary medical sites, or outdoor campus locations, each area has its own requirements. The AP5050 series delivers flexible deployment options—from under seat mounted, to pole-mounted, to APs with software selectable antennas—that ensure an exceptional mobile experience throughout the entire stadium or deployment environment.
The AP5050U and AP5050D are an Enterprise Universal and World SKU Wi-Fi 6E Wireless access point. This innovation simplifies the sales ordering process and reinforces Extreme’s commitment to the journey to the "Infinite Enterprise." 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 AP5050U and AP5050D Wi-Fi 6E access points, with three 4x4:4 radios, provide 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 event venues, schools, transportation facilities, healthcare facilities, and stadiums, the AP5050U and AP5050D are powerful and intelligent enough to provide the highest level of client services without compromising security. Despite powerful capabilities, the AP5050U and AP5050D 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 AP5050U and AP5050D are engineered to meet those challenges. The AP5050U and AP5050D combine 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 AP5050U and AP5050D feature 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.
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, as well as 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.
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 WiNG 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 booted, 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-Fi6 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 which enables improved quality of service (QoS) in dense environments, new applications and use cases, and an improved user experience.
