Dual radio offering peak data rate of up to 5.95 Gbps
ion8xi is integrated with concurrent dual radio to offer a combined peak data rate of 5.95 Gbps, up to 4800 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 1150 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band. Technologies like transmit beamforming and enhanced receiver sensitivity allow the ion8xi to support a higher client density resulting in better performance for more clients connected to each Access Point.
Bi-Directional Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO)
The Access Point offers MU-MIMO and OFDMA for transmission that is more efficient to multiple clients. This is especially suited for environments with numerous varied devices, with each supporting latest or legacy Wi-Fi standards. MU-MIMO enables multiple clients to transmit and receive data simultaneously. This increases the total network performance and improves the end user experience.
Access Points can automatically form a wireless mesh, without any need of expensive cabling and provide connectivity in every possible corner. In case of a mesh node failure, self-healing, and self-optimization functionality, it reconnects and resumes service with the surrounding nodes automatically, without facing downtime. EasyMesh enables ion8xi to be interoperable with third-party Access Points and/or Routers and can quickly be deployed as standalone or converged with the existing network. This eliminates the need for vendor lock-in, reducing the network’s total cost of ownership.
Traffic Shaping & Application Aware
The ion8xi includes an integrated layer 2 to layer 7 packet inspection, classification, and control engine, enabling the configuration of QoS policies based on traffic type, helping to prioritize mission-critical applications while setting limits on recreational traffic like peer-to-peer, gaming, and video streaming. Policies can be implemented per network, SSID, user group, or individual user for maximum flexibility and control.
The ion8xi comes with WPA3 - the latest Wi-Fi security standards, offering more security from hacker attacks. It builds a security shield so hackers cannot crack off-site, brute-force, dictionary-based cracking attempts. Integrated, easy-to- use security provides secure connectivity for employees and guests alike. Advanced security features such as AES hardware-based encryption and Enterprise authentication with 802.1X and Active Directory integration provide wired-like security while still being easy to configure. One-click guest isolation provides secure, Internet-only access for visitors.
Improved Battery Life
ion8xi has features like Unscheduled Automatic Power Save Delivery (U-APSD) and Target Wake Time (TWT) that enable devices such as smartphones and laptops to determine when and how frequently they will communicate with the Access Point. Benefits of these features are multifold such as an increased sleep time for the device, less consumption of battery and band- width, optimized spectral efficiency for IoT devices by reduction in overlaps and conflicts.
Supports centralized management of the entire network on our highly intuitive, flexible, and scalable cloud network manager or on-premise controller. With network distribution flexibility, it allocates varying bandwidths, manages, tracks, troubleshoots, configures, communicates, and enforces policies on all Access Points in the network. The controller has in-built analytics and reporting capabilities to gain insight into usage patterns.
