NETGEAR adds tri-band wireless access point

NETGEAR, Inc.’s fourth member in its Insight Managed WiFi 6 Access Points, is the Insight Managed WiFi 6 AX6000 Tri-band Multi-gig Access Point (WAX630).

It offers premium WiFi 6 (802.11ax) performance with up to 40% higher speeds to each connected device as compared to WiFi 5 (802.11ac). WAX630 interoperates with other NETGEAR Insight Managed Access Points, including the existing WiFi 5 (WAC510, WAC540) and WiFi 6 (WAX610, WAX610Y, WAX620) models. Additionally, WAX630 allows access points to be connected to each other using Instant Mesh– a NETGEAR wireless backhaul technology. The WAX 630 comes equipped with two Ethernet ports – one Gigabit Ethernet port and a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE++) 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port.

WAX630 is ideally suited for environments with open spaces where there is a need to provide WiFi connectivity to a large number of concurrent users. Schools, community colleges, mid-sized manufacturing facilities, warehouses and office premises of mid-sized companies will each find value in the capabilities of this new Insight Managed WiFi 6 Tri-band Multi-gig Access Point. This powerful access point interoperates with existing NETGEAR WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 Access Points, thus protecting a customer’s investment in NETGEAR technology while allowing them to maximize the performance of their WiFi network.

WAX630 also supports 12-streams (4×4 on each band) with each unit capable of delivering up to 6.0 Gbps of aggregate data throughput with all three bands supporting WiFi 6. Specifically designed for high-density deployments, the industry unique tri-band solution enables either one dedicated band for wireless backhaul with two front-haul bands for client devices, or a 2.5GbE wired backhaul with three front-haul bands for client device connection – thus making WAX630 amongst the most versatile and high-performance access points in the industry.

NETGEAR Insight enables management of WAX630 and other devices from the Insight App or a connected browser. With Insight, resellers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can remotely set up, monitor and maintain a customer’s network without requiring a technician to go on-site.

The WAX630 provides robust enterprise-grade WiFi network security with WPA3 128-bit to 192-bit encryption and the capability to set up VLANs and up to sixteen different SSIDs. With the tri-band WiFi 6 technology of the WAX630, businesses can now be confident that they are making an investment in the ultimate WiFi solution.
