Wi-Fi continues to dominate mission-critical networks in every market. As the reliance on Wi-Fi grows, so do the requirements to support lower-latency applications, higher bitrate, and higher density. Consumer-grade devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are increasingly used in enterprise and retail networks alongside purpose-built handheld computers. In markets such as education, hospitality, and MDU/MTU, new devices are upgraded quickly and now support the IEEE 802.11ax standard in 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz frequency bands.

Advantages:

  • Dual-band and tri-band operations cover 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and/or 6 GHz.
  • Software-defined radio (SDR) delivers design flexibility and investment protection and allows customers to adapt the network as the device needs grow.
  • Multi-radio architecture with up to 5 radios per AP provides the most effective use of Wi-Fi bands, under SDR control, for high-density applications.
  • Multiple 6 GHz radios in some models, under SDR control.
  • Wi-Fi 6E Migration Assistant in cnMaestro X and XMS-Cloud that tracks network devices over time and reports and recommends when a 6 GHz network operation is optimal.
  • Seamless integration with the wireless-aware cnMatrix line of intelligent Ethernet switches.

The suggested replacement for XMS-Enterprise for new installations depends on customer requirements as outlined in the following table:
