Product features

Enterprise-class features to support the latest Wi-Fi 6 devices


    Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6E™ program is designed to ensure that Wi-Fi 6E-capable devices meet the highest standards for security and interoperability. Wi-Fi 6E certification guarantees high speed and advanced features from Wi-Fi 6 with enhancements to data-handling protocols, a separate 6GHz band for Wi-Fi 6E enable devices, and more.

  • 2.5 gigabit Ethernet uplink port

    Utilize the full features of Wi-Fi 6E with a 2.5GbE uplink port to further improve data transfers over existing Cat5 or 6 cables.

  • Backward-compatible

    The Instant On AP32 is compatible with all your legacy wireless devices—802.11b/g/n/ac—so you won't have to replace your smartphones and tablets.

  • Increased capacity

    Wi-Fi 6E utilizes a broader range of channels cutting down on interference from the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. This means more devices can communicate more efficiently with the Wi-Fi 6E access point, increasing capacity and reducing latency.

  • Smart Mesh

    Extend your network coverage wirelessly with the Smart Mesh feature. Using the Instant On mobile app or web portal, connect the first AP, then plug in another AP to a second power source with the DC power adapter. With a single click, the secondary APs connect to the primary AP over the 5Ghz wireless band, extending network coverage without the need for network cables.

  • ClientMatch

    Uses a system-level view of the entire network to continuously monitor the health of connected devices. The data of these connected devices is shared among APs to prevent over-subscriptions. ClientMatch will dynamically move clients appropriately without the need for intervention.
