With 4x4 internal antennas, Linksys' WiFi 6 Cloud Managed Access Point provides fast, secure, and reliable WiFi built for the likes of retail stores, medical offices, small businesses, and commercial spaces supporting concurrent client connections, according to Linksys.

Linksys' Access Point also features a cloud-native operating system, zero-touch provisioning, access to Linksys Cloud, and unlimited device/network scaling.

“While many workers and companies embrace hybrid work solutions, offices and small businesses still need to ensure they have the latest in fast, reliable and secure Wi-Fi connectivity,” said John Minasyan, director of product management at Linksys.

“At Linksys, we recognize both sides of the hybrid work era, and in addition to our remote work solutions we are excited to also launch our newest WiFi 6 Dual-Band access point.”

Businesses can also choose to monitor and customize guest Wi-Fi access with Linksys’ Captive Portal. Before granting access to the internet, the portal directs users to an authentication page. Linksys’ cloud-managed indoor Access Point is also TAA-compliant for NDAA and GSA schedule contracts and federal use.

The Access Point is also equipped with Qualcomm's advanced Networking pro Platform 1200 chipset, ensuring wire-like stability and high performance.

Lastly, with support for Power over Ethernet (802.3af PoE or 802.3at PoE+), Linksys’ Access Point can draw both power and data from a single Ethernet cable, making it suitable for ceiling or wall mounting without the need for an AC outlet or separate power supply.
