The Extreme NetworksAP550 features 802,11ac Wave 2 dual 5 GHz radio, and 4x4:4/3 MU-MIMO . Built-in BLE  provides proximity, indoor location tracking, and other location-based mobile engagement services. The AP550 has the power to support enterprise-grade features, including built-in application visibility and control, RADIUS authentication, DHCP, captive web portals, location services and spectrum analysis. The AP550 supports standards-based TxBF (transmit beam-forming). The AP550 supports Bluetooth and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy, which is Bluetooth 4.0). Although both technologies use the 2.4 GHz frequency, BLE has a lower power requirement for moving smaller amounts of data, while Bluetooth can support larger data loads.

Important! Change the Country Code

If your access point is configured for the World Regulatory Domain, it is important to set the country code to the country in which the AP will be deployed to meet regulatory requirements and for optimal wireless operation. To do this, follow these steps:

  • The country code selection is for World models only and is not available to FCC, CAN, and other country-specific models. Per FCC regulations, all Wi-Fi products marketed in the United States must be set to U.S. channels only.
