Featured Video: Introducing The Arista W-318

Arista’s Wi-Fi 6E access points are the building block of a self-driving Wi-Fi network powering AI/ML based continued adaptations, saving time and resources resulting in significant cost savings and increased user and operator satisfaction. 

Designed for immediate and future worldwide operation with investment protection, the Arista’s Wi-Fi 6E access points allow dual 5 GHz operation through software configuration where:

  • 6 GHz radio operates in the upper 5 GHz band
  • 5 GHz radio operates in the lower 5 GHz band. 
  • When regulations allow or when the 6 GHz clients population justifies, 6 GHz operation can simply be turned on, on all or on selected access points. 

With 2x2, 2 stream MIMO and 4x4, 4 stream MIMO on all three access radios, Arista’s Wi-Fi 6E APs future proof your Wi-Fi network with maximum combined peak data rate exceeding 10 Gbps on the high end model. The Multi-functional wall or desktop mounted model also provides wired Ethernet ports for in-room use cases that may require wired devices connectivity and PoE. All models include legendary built-in Arista WIPS to provide the highest security on the wireless and wired network.
