Conquering Extreme Environments

The EAP111 is a Wi-Fi 6 2x2 MU-MIMO access point with up to 3Gbps aggregated data rate. The EAP111 is equipped with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio and ZigBee for IoT implementations and novel applications. The EAP111’s innovative design with an IP55 rating enclosure allows you to use the same model in indoor and outdoor environments.

The OAP101 and OAP102 are Wi-Fi 6 outdoor access points featuring 2x2 MU-MIMO, additionally the OAP102 supports 4 x 4 MU-MIMO for the 5 GHz channel. Both OAP101 and OAP102 are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions in outdoor and industrial environments with IP66- and IP68-rated, rust-resistant housing and an outstanding wide-temperature range. The access points are able to operate effectively and reliably in a broad spectrum of temperature conditions and are resistant to rain, wind, and snow, making them highly versatile and suitable for various environments.

Unleashing the Power of Wi-Fi 6E in Outdoor Connectivity

In a world where seamless connectivity is paramount, Wi-Fi 6E emerges as the beacon of next-gen wireless technology. The 'E' in Wi-Fi 6E stands for 'Extended,' as it expands the capabilities of Wi-Fi 6 into the 6 GHz band, offering increased capacity, wider channels, and reduced interference.

The OAP101-6E from Edgecore Wi-Fi exemplifies this shift, offering unprecedented performance and adaptability in outdoor environments. The OAP101-6E is a tri-band Wi-Fi 6E 2x2 MU-MIMO outdoor access point, designed to take advantage of the 6 GHz spectrum. The OAP101-6E is also designed to withstand harsh weather conditions in outdoor and industrial environments with an IP66- and IP68-rated, rust-resistant housing and an outstanding wide-temperature range. Resistance to rain, wind, and snow, ensures users always have consistent and dependable connectivity.

Wi-Fi 6E marks a significant improvement over Wi-Fi 6 by offering exclusive channels, promising enhanced wireless performance. With the OAP101-6E, service providers are able to ensure efficient channel utilization, providing high-speed connections across an expansive range without any overlap or interference.

Outdoor venues and setups harnessing the power of devices like the OAP101-6E not only set benchmarks but also define the gold standard for outdoor wireless experiences. Adopting such forward-thinking technology ensures users receive state-of-the-art wireless capabilities and underlines a commitment to long-term tech investments. This is the future of Wi-Fi connectivity, unburdened by interference, and broadening possibilities with its extended spectrum.
