Extreme Networks WiNG AP 8163 Features

Rugged Design Delivers Next-Generation High-Performance Wi-Fi in Demanding Outdoor Environments Break through your walls and extend your wireless LAN (WLAN) outdoors with the ExtremeWireless WiNG AP 8163. This rugged access point is purpose-built inside and out to enable easy extension of robust wireless connectivity to workers in outdoor spaces. On the outside is a housing designed to handle virtually any weather conditions. On the inside, three radios give you the power and flexibility to handle today’s bandwidth-heavy applications and secure your data — without purchasing and managing an additional layer of equipment. Each of the two 802.11n radios can support either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band, providing the flexibility to segment traffic as needed to maximize network and application performance. The third band-unlocked radio can be used to help increase security and network uptime as either a dedicated sensor for a Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), enabling around-the-clock rogue detection, or as a Scan Ahead radio that can find clean channels and eliminate network outages due to radar interference in the 5 GHz band. And with high-powered radios, you’ll experience greater capacity and better network performance with fewer access points, effectively reducing the cost of your wireless LAN. With the AP 8163, whether your workers are viewing technical schematics, placing a video call to get on-the-spot assistance with a task, or accessing an inventory application, you’ll have the bandwidth you need to continually exceed their performance expectations — with the integrated around-theclock monitoring required to keep your network safe.
