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 AP 305C/CX is part of Extreme's Universal Wi-Fi platform 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 AP305C/CX automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP305C/CX AP and the user can stay in the cloud or select manage the device locally.
The AP305C/CX are indoor enterprise APs based on a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) with two built-in dual-band radios providing the best value with Wi-Fi 6 high efficiency. The AP305C/CX platforms are the first generation of APs to run multiple Extreme operating systems, providing flexibility and choice of onpremise or cloud deployment, while minimizing total cost of ownership. You have your choice of models with either integrated or external antennas. Advanced radio technology delivers 802.11ax 2x2:2 data rates up to 2.4 Gbps concurrently on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. These 2x2:2 APs continue the Extreme tradition of software-selectable radios (SSRs) capable of dual 5 GHz connectivity for indoor and industrial environments.
This enterprise-grade access point is ideal for budget-conscious enterprises who do not want to sacrifice performance.
The AP305C/CX comes in an aesthetic design and can fit in the palm of your hand. Both models are eco-friendly APs partially made from recycled materials. Also included is an integrated light sensor and integrated power meter to help conserve power consumption*. The easy install ceiling mount for quick installation and unique way to hide the Ethernet cables for an aesthetically pleasing installation.
Despite the exponential growth of users, BYOD devices, IoT, high-bandwidth applications and security threats straining the infrastructure, the AP305C/CX combines performance, security services and insightful ML/AI management capabilities to deliver an enterprise class solution at a value price.
