Araknis Networks® Wi-Fi 6 520 Series Indoor Wireless Access Point
The Araknis AN-520 Wireless Access Point brings the latest in Wi-Fi technology to the Araknis lineup! Wi-Fi 6 offers support for OFDMA, MU-MIMO, 1024 QAM, 160MHz Channel Bandwidth and BSS Coloring to help support higher network capacity and enhanced reliability. The AN-520 features 2x2 antenna design supporting peak data rates of up to 3000Mbps at 160MHz Channel bandwidth and a 2.5Gbps LAN port-in to offer support for multi-gig jobs.
Important Note: Mixing Araknis Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 5 Series Access Points on the same job will impact performance and is not recommended. Fast roaming between Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 5 devices is not supported.
A Fast & Efficient Network
Wi-Fi 6 is the new standard for increased speed, coverage, and capacity. Installing a Wi-Fi 6 access point in your networks can also extend the battery life of Wi-Fi 6-connected devices.
The AN-520's 2x2 antenna provides a more powerful connection for more devices, making sure your network won't sacrifice speed for size.
Easy Setup with OvrC Wi-Fi Management
The lightning-fast speeds of Wi-Fi 6 combined with the unmatched control provided by OvrC Wi-Fi management delivers enhanced performance and convenience to your networking portfolio. With cloud configuration for projects with multiple access points, you can easily configure, manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the network from the OvrC mobile or web app, eliminating hours of manual setup time.
For added efficiency, the new OvrC Connect app empowers your clients to resolve common issues on their own.
Powerful & Reliable Performance
We’re placing greater demand on the network than ever before. Wi-Fi 6 utilizes OFDMA (orthogonal frequency-division multiple access) to tackle high-density environments by allowing simultaneous communication between multiple devices. This technology helps optimize bandwidth, thereby reducing congestion and improving speeds.
The 2.5GbE Ethernet ensures the backhaul will not be a bottleneck for full use of available Wi-Fi capacity and helps futureproof your networks for applications such as VR/AR.
*Note: The 2.5GbE port is backward compatible with 100/1000Mbps Ethernet.
Create multiple SSIDs and customize each to meet specific network requirements such as enabling/disabling Fast Roaming, Band Steering, or Wi-Fi 6 compatibility per SSID. This ensures the best Wi-Fi experience and provides tools necessary to support older IoT devices without impacting the main network.
This AP also offers DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) channel support to increase the number of Wi-Fi channels when available and WPA3 mode to offer latest security.
The latest addition to the Araknis family shares the same bracket size and low-profile design as Araknis 510 APs to make upgrading a breeze.
As a bonus, the new Factory Reset button design no longer requires a pin saving time when performing hard resets.
