Netgear introduces easy-to-manage wireless AC Wave 2 AP

Netgear has launched a new, feature-rich wireless access point (AP) designed to boost Wi-Fi performance in businesses needing to scale their Wi-Fi to support a growing number of users and devices.
“The WAC510 AC Wi-FI Business AP delivers one of the industry’s easiest-to-use experiences for business access point deployment,” says Tobie van Schalkwyk, Netgear Business Development manager at Duxbury Networking.
“It’s Netgear’s first wireless AP to offer easy management through the new Netgear Insight mobile ‘app’,” he explains. “Instead of requiring a separate wireless controller at additional cost, the WAC510 is managed by the app which is designed for mobile interfaces. This facilitates the simple and time-efficient set-up and monitoring of an organisation’s access points through a smartphone or tablet.”
Van Schalkwyk believes that IT managers of the future will be increasingly smartphone-centric, and the Netgear Insight app is a clear indication of Netgear’s understanding of this evolving marketplace paradigm.
Features of the new WAC510 include business-class WiFi with dual-band Wave 2 802.11ac performance and enhanced range due to a 2×2 antenna (transmit and receive) with two streams of data for aggregate throughput of up to 1.2Gbps (300 Mbps at 2.4GHz and 900 Mbps at 5GHz).
In addition, MU-MIMO technology avoids congestion and reliably enables maximum performance in high-density sites such as public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Two Ethernet ports, including one Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) 1GbE 802.3af port for easy, single-wire deployment of a PoE switch, are standard as are two modes of operation – a router mode for single WAC510 deployment in a small office, or access point mode for multiple WAC510 deployment in a larger scenario.
The WAC150 boasts a compact, elegant design with two mounting options for optimum placement on the wall or ceiling.
