Dual Band 802.11ac Access Point with Enterprise Security, and PoE

AP-500AC is a dual band 802.11ac wireless access point that delivers speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps targeted to support high-bandwidth activities such as video conferencing and cloud storage syncing. With speeds up to 4 times faster than 802.11n, it offers increased productivity for high density applications. AP-500AC can operate on both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz frequency bands simultaneously. This offers customers the flexibility
to use both their 802.11ac and legacy devices simultaneously without any degradation in performance.

Top Features:

  • Support high-speed wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11ac
  • Enterprise Security Support
  • Wireless Distribution System (WDS)
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Multiple SSID Support
  • Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) Support

AP-500AC is a dual band IEEE802.11ac wireless access point with the speed of 1.3Gbps (theoretical valu, 3x3 MIMO). It delivers 4 times the speed of a conventional standard IEEE 802.11an (theoretical value 300 Mbps) which proves effective in the transmission of large amount of data. This product can have simultaneous operation on 5Ghz band (IEEE802.11ac / a / n) and the 2.4Ghz band for (IEEE802.11b / g / n). This enablesthe  customers to use both their 802.11ac and legacy devices simultaneously without having to compromise on performance. Moreover, in response to the integrated device management software AMC Manager ™, that helps in labor-saving and cost reduction of the operational management of the wireless LAN equipment.

Features and Benefits:

Support high-speed wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11ac

It provides fast communication interference less 5GHz band. It is used in conjunction with the 802.11ac-enabled wireless LAN terminal, you can greatly improve operational efficiency.

Advanced security

Supports IEEE 802.1X authentication function, an advanced security features that are commonly used.
It is possible to prevent unauthorized access of unauthorized devices by combining with the Radius server.

Wireless Distribution System (WDS)

WDS corresponds to (access point-to-point communication) function, allows a wireless network to be
expanded using multiple access points without the need for a wired backbone to link them, which is traditionally required. 

PoE (Power over Ethernet)

AP-500AC can be powered by a PoE device complying with IEEE 802.3af through a network cable allowing flexible
placement of the access point. The included AC adapter is also available for power.

Multiple SSID Support

AP-500AC supports multiple SSID profiles that allows a single AP to virtually function as 4 AP’s. 5GHz and 2.4 GHz bands both support 2 SSID’s each. This can allow clients to connect with the AP-500AC with different security settings and profiles.

Network Log Save Function

Network events generated by the AP are saved in an internal memory. It helps customers understand how the network and the AP-500AC behaves over time which can provide administrators valuable troubleshooting information and improves operational efficiencies.

Integrated device management software "AMC Manager"

AMC Manager is an integrated device management software intended for the networking products. With the software, network administrators  easily can configure, manage, and monitor Silex products connected to a wired or wireless network remotely. AMC Manager monitors status, configuration changes, firmware update, and device rebooting of Silex networking products.

Silex transforms products into secure, reliable wireless devices and machines that deliver a completely connected, always-on experience for customers, aiming for each network device to have a reliable connection when it absolutely must connect. AMC Manager supports this vision, ensuring a healthy wireless environment with reliable remote monitoring of wireless features including RSSI value, noise level, and number of occupied DFS channels. The software is designed to be an efficient management protocol for business customers to integrate wireless infrastructure and devices.

Supported OS: Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit / 64-bit), Windows 8 (32-bit / 64-bit), Windows 8.1 (32-bit / 64-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

The software will allow a network administrator to manage up to 1,000 Silex products. For more information, and to request qualification as an enterprise customer of Silex products to use the software, fill out the request form or contact our networking experts at sales@silexamerica.com.
