Access Networks Introduces Wi-Fi 6 Certified Wireless Access Point

A750Access Networks continues to evolve its offerings — the newest addition to its extensive lineup of networking products is a Wi-Fi 6 certified wireless access point. The A750 access point bridges the performance gap from “gigabit” Wi-Fi to “multi-gigabit” Wi-Fi to support the demand for better and faster Wi-Fi.

The A750 can manage up to 1,024 client connections with increased capacity and improved coverage. This capability is particularly useful for ultra-dense environments where the proximity of many individual Wi-Fi networks often impedes performance. Additionally, the A750 connects more devices simultaneously with built-in eight spatial streams (4X4:4 in GHz and 2.4GHz), MU-MIMO, OFDMA technology and provides over 4,000 unique antenna patterns.

A fully functional Wi-Fi 6 network requires that all devices on the network are Wi-Fi 6-compliant. However, Access Networks Director of Training & Development Nathan Holmes, points out the A750 can still communicate with legacy Wi-Fi devices. It just won’t support the multi-device communications features inherent to Wi-Fi 6-compliant components.
Certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6, the A750 validates seamless interoperability with other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 devices and achieves multi-gigabit access speeds by using a built-in 2.5GbE port to connect to multi-gigabit switches. It also features the latest Wi-Fi security standard, WPA3, for enhanced security of devices on the network.
