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 AP410C 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). Customer shave 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 AP410C automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The per-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP410C AP and the user can stay in the cloud or select manage the device locally.
The AP410C provides high-efficiency, high-performance 802.11ax aggregate data rates up to 4.8 Gbps in the 5 GHz band and concurrent 574 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band. The AP410C platforms are the first generation of APs to run multiple Extreme operating systems, providing flexibility and choice of on-premise or cloud deployment, while minimizing total cost of ownership designed for high density environments, AP410C is powerful enough and smart enough to provide the highest level of client services without compromising security monitoring. Unlike other access points that scan only part time, the dedicated, dual-band sensor scans for rogue devices full time, eliminating the risk of vulnerability or attacks. Tri-Radio APs continues the Extreme tradition of software-selectable radios (SSRs) capable of dual 5 GHz connectivity.
With more users, more devices, more things, more applications and more threats straining the infrastructure, the AP410C was engineered to meet those challenges. The AP410C combines powerful 802.11ax WI-Fi 6 technology, advanced security and ML/AI management capabilities together into an enterprise class solution that allows you to deploy high speed, highly secure WI-Fi into the toughest environments.
To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services, the AP410C integrates Bluetooth to connect with IoT devices wireless to engage loyalty customers with Apple iBeacon1. Enterprises can use API driven applications to send advertisements directly to shoppers, guests, and conference attendees. This makes it ideal for businesses to advertise their app download pages, captive portals, or site-specific information.
In conjunction with Extreme centralized management software, cloud or on-premises, the AP410C provides a rich set of data displayed via context driven widgets, representing unlimited historical data or a combination of historical and current data. This provides context-specific granularity with perspective views for locations, network, APs, individual client devices, and policy roles. In each context, administrators can adjust dashboards using a widget library.
Extreme launched the industry's first software defined 802.11ax access point supporting not only a dual 5 GHz capability but also two software programmable modes to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance. The AP410C intelligent monitoring of the software-configurable radios enables network managers to configure network RF technology based on user environment and configure the access points in different modes as required.
The AP410C delivers the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the latest Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications. Additionally, supporting a stateful L2- L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security.
The AP410C as a universal hardware platform comes with a dual-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi- Fi operating system (OS). Either the IQ Engine operating system or the WiNG Operating System persona can be enabled as required. The desired persona can be selected at start-up or changed at a later stage. Once selected, the AP410C assumes the features/capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP410C automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP410C system, eliminating the need for manual selection.
Prior generations of 802.11n, 802.11ac wave 1 and 2, can be considered generational
improvements with an emphasis on faster speed. 802.11ax technology instead enhances
Wi-Fi efficiency as well as speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level.
