The AP822 catalyzes the migration to Gigabit Wi-Fi by bringing the power of enterprise-wide, full channel 802.11ac to more customers. The AP822 is a cost-effective solution designed to meet the midrange performance requirements of offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and retail stores, and it supports up to an aggregate 1.17 Gbps data rate for the most demanding business applications such as video and voice.
The AP822 is positioned to accelerate the adoption of 802.11ac into more cost-sensitive market segments. For schools, this means a more cost-effective solution can be deployed to meet the growing throughput demand from on-campus wireless devices. Hotels can more easily offer a richer Wi-Fi experience where availability of high-quality wireless services is often the primary criterion - above other amenities for making reservations. Providing high speed, high-capacity wireless LAN services for the small and medium business is now more attainable with the AP822.
The AP822 access point allows administrators to prioritize applications to improve the user experience based on Meru's unique ability to associate specific applications with deployed channel layers. For schools, this means Learning Management System applications can be assigned to one dedicated channel layer, while online classroom video feeds can be dedicated to another channel layer. For healthcare, life-critical applications such as patient monitoring can be assigned to one channel layer, doctor and nursing applications can be assigned to a second layer, and patient applications can be placed on a third channel layer.
Meru's single-channel option within the MobileFLEX architecture uniquely allows the AP822 to support wide Wi-Fi channels in real-world deployments, effectively doubling the data rate over 802.11n and dramatically increasing throughput for Meru customers. The 2x2:2 spatial stream design provides very high throughput (VHT) data rates for the majority of tablets and smartphones, at a competitive price. Additionally, customer feedback has indicated up to a 40% increase in performance with legacy 802.11n devices because of the hardware design benefits of 802.11ac. The AP822 also provides unique roaming support. Meru's patented Air Traffic Control technology enables the network to control client roams, resulting in the industry's lowest roaming latency figures's true zero-handoff.
