Araknis Networks®, SnapAV’s exclusive networking brand, has released two new wireless access point models designed to deliver high speed for installs with multiple wireless clients.
The Araknis Networks 510- and 810-Series Indoor Wireless Access Points are powered by Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology, allowing these access points to simultaneously communicate with multiple devices while increasing throughput and decreasing network congestion.
Valuable for residential installers
“Wave 2 technology is a critical upgrade, particularly for our commercial dealers who need the ability to increase speed and support more devices on high-density networks,” said Kenny Kim, SnapAV’s Vice President of Connected Products.
The new 810-Series is ideal for an integrator’s most robust networking installs
“This feature is valuable for residential installers as well, because faster speed is important to end-users across the board. The average consumer has more IoT devices than ever before and adding technology that lets an access point talk to multiple devices at once results in a noticeable performance improvement.”
Wireless Access Points
These new Wireless Access Points join the existing family of Araknis products for a complete networking solution. While the current the 500-Series WAP is designed for installations that require more range, the new 510-Series will be a dealer’s go-to access point for high-density applications. The new 810-Series is ideal for an integrator’s most robust networking installs, as it can easily handle hundreds of devices at lightning-fast speed.
“The 510- and 810-Series Wireless Access Points are a great addition to the Araknis line,” said Nima Jamshidi, SnapAV’s Senior Product Manager of Networking. “The 510 offers a solid mid-range solution, while the 810-Series is our highest-capacity wireless access point to date. When combined with a 4x4:4 Wave 2 AC antenna, you can install incredible speeds up to 2600Mbps.”
Compatible with OvrC
Beyond their powerful performance, these new wireless access points come in a stylish round design that blends into any environment. The signature Araknis blue LED is embedded in these new models, making for a gentle, diffused light that won’t attract a customer’s attention. The new models also feature two ports, PoE, and a unique dealer-friendly installation method that allows for easy slotting.
They can choose, based on the property, whether to install a longer range or higher density access point
As with all Araknis products, these WAPs are compatible with OvrC, SnapAV’s award-winning free remote management system. This makes setting up and managing a clients’ Araknis Networking wireless devices quick and easy.
Dealers can check and resolve connectivity if a product falls offline and can even create user profiles that customers can use to schedule and restrict Wi-Fi access. Together, OvrC and Araknis eliminate unnecessary truck rolls by giving dealers advanced remote troubleshooting capability.
Solid network infrastructure
In combination with Araknis 100-, 300-, 500-, and 700-Series Wireless Access Points, these two new models give dealers more options than ever before. They can choose, based on the property, whether to install a longer range or higher density access point, and can also mix & match square and round models to match a customer’s aesthetic preference.
Concluded Kim, “Dealers know that keeping pace with technology and ever-growing network demands is critical for their business. These new Araknis Wireless Access Points will help integrators create a solid network infrastructure for their clients that will provide years of reliable and seamless connectivity.”
