Cambium has introduced a new Access Point for high density and edge services – the XV3-8
The XV3-8 features a total of five (5) radios consisting of three data radios that can be configured as two 5 GHz 4×4 plus one 2.4 GHz 4×4, or the two 5 GHz radios can be combined into a single 5 GHz 8×8 radio with the maximum power and performance of the 802.11ax standard. A dedicated network scanning radio provides continuous network monitoring to enhance security protocols, detailed network reports, and automatic RF optimisations. Add the Bluetooth Smart 4.1 IoT radio for BLE-based location services and you get a multi-radio, high- capacity Wi-Fi 6 AP designed for the most demanding networks in enterprise, education, retail, and public venues.
For current networks dominated by 802.11ac client devices, the dual 5 GHz 4×4 mode will double network capacity to maintain high-bitrate services as density increases. As the devices migrate to the new Wi-Fi 6 standard based on 802.11ax, the XV3-8 Software Defined Radios can be quickly converted into full 8×8 operating mode via a simple configuration change. No firmware change is required to support this mode.
The XV3-8 can be configured and managed with either Cambium Networks’ XMS (paid) or cnMaestro management system (free). Choose the management system that best fits your business and use the latest technology from Cambium Networks. Features do differ between platforms.
To ensure wired network performance matches radio performance, two network ports are provided – one is multi-gigabit offering speeds up to 5Gbps on compatible switches and the other is plain gigabit.
PoE is the 802.3bt standard of up to 35 watts with all radios operating. 802.3at is also supported with the USB port and Bluetooth disabled. 12 Volt local power is also supported.
For peace of mind the XV3-8 comes with Limited Lifetime Warranty providing return and repair service on the access point from date of purchase until end of life of the product.
