NETGEAR, Inc.’s new Tri-band AXE7800 Wireless Access Point (WAX630E) supports the new wider 6GHz WiFi band.
“As applications that include 4K and 8K video streaming or virtual and augmented reality become more pervasive, businesses will need to at least double their WiFi connection speeds to support them,” said Doug Cheung, Director of Product Line Management, SMB Wireless at NETGEAR. “WiFi 6E provides a wide open, fast superhighway to provide the required capacity and speed. The new WAX630E is ideal for SMBs.”
The WAX630E features a tri-band design, enabling the latest WiFi 6E technologies. On both the 5GHz and 6GHz bands, the device can operate in the widest 160MHz WiFi channels. All three bands, 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz fully enable AX technologies such as MU-MIMO. Altogether, it delivers an aggregate throughput of 7.8Gbps, giving client devices on all three WiFi bands ultra-fast access to the Internet and Intranet.
The WAX630E is managed by NETGEAR Insight which provides centralised, real-time cloud management and control, with no need for extra hardware. The management platform is backward compatible to WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 Insight managed access points.
Other security benefits include: WPA3 for the highest level of WiFi connection security, Eight individual wireless networks (SSIDs) can be used for administration, employees, guests and IoT devices (WiFi surveillance cameras, thermostats, door locks and sensors), Multiple VLANs for greater network separation and segregation between admin network, employee, visitor, HR, Finance, etc.
