Three-Radio, Three-Stream 802.11N Access Points
with Spectrum Analysis
Provide the ultimate wireless experience for enterprise users
through optimized Wi-Fi coverage and spectrum monitoring
AP433is Benefits:
Featuring a three-radio, three-stream design, the
AP433is taps the full potential of 802.11n standards
to deliver in today’s world of high client density and
diversity. The third radio, coupled with a removable
external paddle antenna, serves as a dedicated
sensor for proactive spectrum analysis, enabling the
infrastructure to detect, report, and react to Wi-Fi
and non–Wi-Fi interference, while the two other
radios provide superior user experience and enable
high-bandwidth applications within the enterprise.
• Proactive spectrum analysis to detect, report,
and react to Wi-Fi and non–Wi-Fi interference
• Maximizes performance and gain, minimizes
interference through Orthogonal Array Beam
Forming antenna system
Equipped with a removable paddle antenna
for spectrum analysis, the access point can be
configured with a remote antenna to get even
clearer monitoring of interference in some specific
wireless settings. Built for mobility applications,
the AP400 Series defines the new network
edge, preparing enterprises for the all-wireless
workforce and the mobility of business-essential
• Support for Meru’s Service Assurance
Application Suite including: Spectrum Manager,
E(z)RF™ Network Manager, WIPS, and PCI
Compliance Manager
• Increased scalability and reliability through
Meru’s Virtualized Wireless LAN architecture and
channel layering
• All Wi-Fi radios are three streams — 3x3:3
802.11n support in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
frequency bands
Designed for multiple office configurations, the
AP433is can be mounted with a security lock
directly on a suspended ceiling or to a wall with a
wall-mounting bracket.
