The versatile, independent AP 6521 access point is designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN). It enables controller-less operations at small to medium sites by serving as a virtual controller and coordinating the operation of up to 24 neighboring access points for mobility and QoS services. The access point features a MIMO radio, superior receive and transmit sensitivity, and a GigE WAN uplink port. The embedded WiNG 5 intelligence ensures that traffic is locally forwarded along the most efficient paths without sacrificing quality of service and security implemented at the access point itself.
The AP 6521 is a versatile access point with the cost-efficiency of a single radio. With its WiNG 5 intelligence, this access point offers higher throughput along with direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability.
Automatic channel and power optimization
The SMART RF feature automatically optimizes power and channel selection so each user gets always-on high-quality access and mobility.
Optimizes network availability through its central and pre-emptive intelligence, which dynamically senses weak or failing signals, securely moves user to alternate APs, and boosts signal power to ensure uninterrupted mobile user access.
Includes layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, Wireless IPS-lite, VPN gateway, and location-based access control.
Fast and easy deployment
Requires no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Motorola wireless controller discovers access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments.
Device and network acceleration
Device and network performance can be accelerated through a virtual LAN feature via the switch/controller. Each AP 6521 access point can be virtualized into four unique VLANs, which can be customized to direct broadcast traffic to the intended recipient. This reduces overall network traffic while improving device performance and battery life up to 25%. This also reduces the overall number of access points required to provide unique device services.
Full 802.11n performance with standard 802.3af
Simplifies and reduces total cost of installation using standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
