Overview:

Premium Controller Managed 802.11ac Wireless Access Point

NETGEAR Premium Business 802.11ac 4 x 4 Wave 2 Wireless Access Point, purposely designed for enterprises requiring high density and superior performance. The NETGEAR Premium Business 802.11ac 4 x 4 Wave 2 Wireless Access Point (AP) delivers high performance with maximum client density for enterprises requiring ubiquitous and reliable wireless for all business applications. The WAC740 is a controller managed Access Point with ease of centralized management with all NETGEAR wireless controllers from small (WC7500) to mid-size (WC7600) and large-size (WC9500) deployment. The WAC740 operates with Multi-User MIMO and can achieve speeds up to 600 Mbps for 2.4 GHz and 1.7 Gbps at 5 GHz. The WAC740 is Power over Ethernet enabled and comes with 2 Ethernet ports, including one Multi-Gig port that can handle up to 2.5 Gbps of throughput, enabling a single wire to connect to Multi-Gig capable switch for ease of wiring installation.

  • ProSAFE 802.11ac AP Wave 2 provides a theoretical connection rate of up to 2.6Gbps per radio—roughly double the rates offered by today’s high-end 802.11ac access points
  • Reliable wireless coverage with 4 streams of data based on 4x4 (Transmit and Receive) optimized internal antennas
  • Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) increases efficiency and capacity – enabling clients to utilize the RF spectrum much more efficiently by allowing multiple-AP-to client transmissions, beamforming, wider bandwidth, and improved encoding
  • AirQual feature enables spectrum analysis and interference identification
  • Centrally managed by ProSAFE Wireless Controllers
  • 2.5GBASE-T Multi-Gigabit support eliminates bottlenecks associated with standard Gigabit Ethernet (NBASE-T switch required to obtain speeds higher than 1Gbps w/ a single port)

Features:

  • MU-MIMO maximizes the use of wireless medium for delivery of high throughput content
  • Compact and elegant design stylishly blends into the environment
  • Concurrent operation in 2.4GHz (600Mbps) and 5GHz (1.7Gbps) for maximum wireless throughput
  • Backward compatibility with 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n network devices
  • Integrated Power over Ethernet (802.3af and 802.3at) lowers deployment costs
  • Controller managed by WC7500, WC7600 and WC9500 allowing centralized management up to 600 Access Points in a cluster of controllers.
  • Business-class security features include WPA, WPA2, rogue AP detection and 802.1x with RADIUS support
  • Easy mounting mechanism for quick wall or ceiling installation
  • Internal antennas factory-optimized for maximum RF performance
  • Antenna take-offs enable optional accessory antenna attachment for 2.4GHz and/or 5GHz operations
  • AirQual monitors Wi-Fi channel utilization on the network, identify sources of interference. Log alerts on channel quality drop or overload

Easy to Configure

  • Simple setup in minutes with wireless controllers (WC7500/WC7600/WC9500)
  • Centralized configuration and monitoring with complete visibility

High performance and superior coverage

  • Dual band concurrent operation between 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency ranges
  • Maximum performance with multi-gigabit throughput (up to 2.3 Gbps)

Maximize capacity with Multi-user MIMO support

  • Enable concurrent wireless transmit and receive with multiple clients
  • Improves coverage for multiple users in dense environment

Simple and cost effective for installation

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) for flexibility of deployment
  • 2.5 Multi-Gigabit Ethernet port with single cable installation with no compromise
