Add performance and security to your business' wireless network with the Intellinet High-Power Ceiling Mount Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit PoE Access Point.
The main benefit of a dual-band AC access point is the ability to shift traffic from the congested 2.4GHz band to the relatively uncluttered 5GHz space. So, you can use the 2.4GHz band for your everyday tasks, such as surfing the Internet, social media or e-mail, while the 5GHz AC band can be used for heavy-duty traffic like the important VoIP calls in your business environment.
AC is the next generation of wireless technology, providing faster speed and improved coverage. But if none of the devices you own support Wireless AC, never fear — the Intellinet High-Power Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit PoE Access Point is backward compatible with older 802.11b/g/n/a devices, so you can connect virtually any of your wireless devices to it.
Every time an 802.1X EAP-enabled client moves from one access point to another, it has to re-authenticate. While that process is generally quick, it still can cause disruptions in voice-over-IP calls due to the small delay created by the authentication. This is where 802.1X caching comes in. This technology virtually eliminates that delay by caching Pairwise Master Keys (PMK), making seamless roaming truly a reality. Your mobile WiFi users will thank you for that.
The Intellinet High-Power Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit PoE Access Point comes with a PoE PD port. This port can be used to power the device from a PoE-compliant LAN switch, which is very convenient in situations where AC power is not readily available. Should you prefer to use a power adapter instead of PoE, that's okay, too, since we have included a standard 12V power adapter.
The Intellinet High-Power Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit PoE Access Point provides maximum wireless security by supporting 802.1x user authentication for external RADIUS servers and, thanks to its internal RADIUS server, the access point can be used as the authentication server for 256 different user accounts in smaller to medium-sized networks. Other security features included in this access point are MAC address filtering, disable SSID broadcast and support for the latest wireless encryption mechanisms.
Thanks to its small footprint and low-profile, smoke-detector look, the Intellinet Ceiling Mount Access Point blends in perfectly with the environment in your office, which helps minimizing tampering and theft. In addition, you can disable the status LEDs via the admin Web interface, making the Intellinet access point a rather stealthy device.
