New Wireless Design Service for SMB Businesses & WiFi 6 AP WAX625
In an effort to continually serve the SMB market, we recently announced a new product and a new service to help managed service providers as well as SMB IT personnel provide best-in-class network performance customized to the needs of their organizations and customers. The latest Insight-managed Pro WiFi access point, WAX625, featuring industry-leading engineering, next-generation performance, and enterprise-level security. It’s ideal for any small or midsize business (SMB) seeking to upgrade their WiFi capabilities.
The new multi-gig WiFi 6 WAX625 Insight-managed access point builds on the success of our WiFi 6 line of products with increased capabilities. Based on WiFi 6 Release 2 technology, featuring wider 160MHz channels on the 5GHz band, the WAX625 delivers 100 percent more throughput than its predecessor at a comparable price. The dual-band access point provides up to 5.4Gbps1 total WiFi throughput, helping to serve more users with better speed and less congestion. Supported by a 2.5Gbps Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port for single-cable data and power connection and one Gigabit Ethernet port, the WAX625 affords a super-fast connection to a switch or internet router.
This remote-managed access point is ideal for businesses and managed service providers (MSPs) who look for scalability and performance in WiFi deployment. The WAX625 is perfectly suited for high-density client device environments such as schools, restaurants, and conference centers. For powerful management capabilities, the WAX625 includes one-year of NETGEAR Insight, providing centralized, real-time cloud management and control, with no need for additional hardware. The access point is compatible with all Insight-managed access points in forming a wired and wireless mesh network based on our unique Instant Mesh technology to create a larger coverage area with seamless roaming.
