Product features

HPE Networking Instant On Access Point AP12 has all the features you need right out of the box

  • Supports up to 75 devices

    The Instant On AP12 can handle heavy network users who spread their work throughout the day, or lighter users who might connect at the same time. Made to fit your budget, this indoor access point supports up to 75 devices simultaneously. Delivering MU-MIMO capabilities, it has a maximum aggregate peak data rate of 1.6 Gbps.

  • Security

    Stopping people and bots from accessing your network from the outside is critical for small businesses. That's why the Instant On AP12 has a built-in security gateway and firewall to keep business and guest traffic separate. Offering WPA2/WPA3/OWE authentication for secure Wi-Fi access, this future-ready access point delivers a worry-free networking experience.

  • High performance

    Instant On AP12 delivers 5 GHz 802.11ac 3x3 MIMO for up to 1,300 Mbps wireless data rate, with Multi User MIMO support (Wi-Fi 5) 2.4 GHz 802.11n 2x2 MIMO for up to 300 Mbps wireless data rate (Wi-Fi 4). This powerful access point is designed to meet mobile, IoT, and security needs, and supports high-definition video streaming and cloud-application requirements.

  • Built in Wi-Fi router/gateway functionality

    Instant On is designed to serve as the primary Wi-Fi router to your network. Just connect your access point to your modem and you’re ready to go. By setting up your Wi-Fi in router mode, you’ll eliminate the need for additional devices.

  • Separate employee and guest networks

    Customize the experience with your logo, authentication, and rules of use, or keep it simple. You can easily apply bandwidth rates, set data usage per app, and limit the duration of use of an external portal or service like Facebook Wi-Fi. Additionally, you can open guest networks for quick and easy access, applying bandwidth limits for your clients or your network.

  • 802.11k to eliminate sticky client issue

    802.11k provides a smoother, non-disruptive experience by giving users consistent network access. Even when roaming, the result is fewer disruptions to applications, and faster service as a result of improved WLAN utilization.
