Enabling wireless networks to learn, predict, protect, and progress, Arista’s Cognitive WiFi™ solution optimizes the wireless experience. Harnessing the power of the cloud, big data analytics, and automation, Cognitive WiFi augments network admin capacity with the power of intelligence, speed and accuracy. Through root cause analysis and proactive problem resolution options, Cognitive WiFi also reduces the mean-time-to-resolve problems, minimizing troubleshooting effort for the network.
The new next-gen AP C-250 is designed with the latest in Wireless technology for high performance scenarios. WiFi6 technology enables higher data rates and increased capacity. It also helps improve battery life of client devices. Uplink and Downlink OFDMA and MU-MIMO lowers latency and enables communication with multiple client devices at the same time. This is the ideal AP for a dynamic environment with a large variety of client devices.
Arista Cognitive WiFi Specifications
The C-250 is designed with high-efficiency, high density next generation WiFi6. Features like OFDMA and MU-MIMO (uplink and downlink) provide enhanced capacity. With 8 antennas for better coverage, integrated BLE and Dual 2.5Gb 802.3bt PoE with failover, the C-250 is the AP for the new wireless Enterprise.
