  • Aerohive AP250
    Built for high performance and future-proofed for evolving capacity needs

     

    Overview:

    AP250AP250 features 3x3:3 MU-MIMO, providing full 802.11ac technology performance with data rates up to 2.6 Gbps per access point using existing 802.3af PoE infrastructure. Software configurable radio allows IT managers to enable dual 5 GHz 802.11ac performance on both radios to provide the best of coverage and capacity Wi-Fi design and maximize ROI. Built-in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) radio enables proximity, indoor location tracking, and other location-based mobile engagement services.

    Highlights

    • Software selectable radio allows either two 5 GHz radios (for high density-high capacity deployments) or concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios
    • Full 3x3:3 Wave 2 802.11ac MU-MIMO and dual 5 GHz performance
    • Built-in BLE for iBeacon and other beacon technologies
    • IoT readiness with USB port for other wireless technologies to connect seamlessly

    AP250 is an excellent choice to provide instant adaption to ever-changing capacity needs. AP250 features dual radio, 3x3:3 MU MIMO, providing full 802.11ac technology performance with data rates up to 2.6 Gbps per access point using existing 802.3af PoE infrastructure.

    While AP250 inherits the signature elements of Aerohive access points such as the powerful HiveOS and innovative distributed Cooperative Control architecture, it also includes new features such as built-in BLE and software-defined radio. Built-in BLE (Bluetooth Low-Energy) radio enables proximity, indoor location tracking and other location-based mobile engagement services. Software defined radio allows IT managers to enable 802.11ac performance on both radios to provide the best of coverage and capacity

    AP250 is a key component of the Aerohive Connect solution. Connect provides cloud-managed connectivity built on Aerohive’s industry-first cooperative control Wi-Fi focused on optimizing speed and resilience. Connect is centrally managed from the cloud, allowing for simple, fast, and powerful management.
