AP 6522
DUAL RADIO 802.11A/B/G/N WIRELESS ACCESS POINT
Designed for small offices and retail locations, the AP 6522 can handle the increasing number of Wi-Fi enabled
devices and bandwidth heavy applications connecting to your wireless network. The AP 6522 is a site survivable
wireless access point that does not require a controller. With it’s WiNG 5 intelligence, this access point offers higher
throughput along with direct forwarding, security, QoS services and site survivability. The AP 6522 can also serve as a
virtual controller and coordinate the operation of up to 24 neighboring access points.
Simplifies and reduces total
cost of installation using
standard
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
Dual Radio Design
Radios can be configured for
client access on 2.4Ghz and
5.0Ghz or independently
used with one radio for client
access and the second radio
for sensing
MULTI-PURPOSE FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS
The AP 6522 is a multipurpose access point designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable
802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN). The access point features MIMO radios with superior receive and transmit sensitivity,
a console port for configuration, and a GiGE LAN/WAN POE enabled port for local or remote network connectivity.
This easy-to-deploy solution delivers the speed and reliability to support the increase in WLAN traffic from employees
bringing their own devices (BYOD) and supports the most demanding applications, including real-time video and voice
. The embedded WiNG 5 intelligence ensures that traffic is locally forwarded along the most efficient paths without
sacrificing quality of service and security implemented at the access point itself. One radio can be used for client
access while the second radio is used for simultaneous client access on a different frequency band or as a dedicated
sensor on both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands for security and troubleshooting.
MESH NETWORKING
To enable the extension of wireless network coverage to areas where ethernet cabling is cost-prohibitive or otherwise
impractical, the AP 6522 can operate wirelessly, connecting to other access points for data backhaul, in a mesh
topology. Enabling an array of applications over mesh, this feature offers a cost-effective way to extend the network,
relying on a highly resilient, self-configuring system. Taking advantage of the dual-radio architecture and the
easy-to-use configuration interface, it becomes a simple task to deploy a wireless network of access points connected
securely via 802.11n, providing enterprise-class service.
AUTOMATIC CHANNEL AND POWER OPTIMIZATION
Common problems such as building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement are
minimalized as the SMART RF feature of the switch/controller automatically optimizes power and channel selection so
each user gets always-on high-quality access and mobility.
HIGH RELIABILITY
The AP 6522 is designed to optimize network availability through its central and pre-emptive intelligence which
dynamically senses weak or failing signals, securely moves mobile users to alternate APs, and boosts signal power to
automatically fill RF holes and ensure uninterrupted mobile user access.
Mobility
Supports fast secure
roaming
Security
This unique multi-purpose
device can execute and
enforce the IDS/IPS security
policies configured in the
Zebra wireless switch, and
can also be utilized as a
24x7 dedicated sensor with
Wireless IPS from WLAN
Security Services
Application Support
Supports Call Admission
Control, for optimized
VoWLAN performance, as
well as video streaming and
data throughput for 802.11 a/
b/g/n clients
Mesh Networking
Extend wireless network
coverage in a cost-effective
way to enable a wide array

LESS IS MORE
GAP-FREE SECURITY
The AP 6522 provides enterprise class security with layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services,
Wireless IPS-lite, VPN gateway, and location-based access control. The security capability of the AP 6522 is further
enhanced when deployed in combination with premise or cloud-based versions of the WLAn Security Services
Zebra's WiNG 5 WLAN
solutions offer all the benefits
of 11n—and then some. Our
distributed architecture
Platform which increase the security and resiliency of AP 6522 networks with an array of advanced security and
network assurance features including Spectrum Analysis, Wireless IPS, Live RF, Advanced Forensics and AP Testing
to proactively identify and mitigate network disruptions.
FAST AND EASY DEPLOYMENT
Access points require no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Zebra wireless controller discovers
access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing
installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments.
DEVICE AND NETWORK ACCELERATION
Device and network performance can be accelerated through a virtual LAN feature via the switch/controller. Each AP
6522 access point can be virtualized into four unique VLANs which can be customized to direct broadcast traffic to the
intended recipient. This reduces overall network traffic while improving device performance and battery life up — to
25%. This also reduces the overall number of access points required to provide unique device services.
