Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Indoor Access Point with Support for Multiple
Extreme Operating Systems
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.
