An IP55 rating, fast install, and built-in BakPak help bring Wave 2 technology to outdoor installs.
Charlotte, NC – December 3, 2019, 10 a.m. ET – SnapAV, a leading provider of entertainment, surveillance, networking, automation, and remote management products for smart homes, announces the new Pakedge® WA-2200-O Wave 2 Outdoor Access Point. This next-generation outdoor AP helps integrators extend exceptional Wi-Fi performance to the outdoors.
With an IP55 rated water and dust-resistant enclosure, this AP can withstand the most severe environments, including temperatures ranging from -20° C to 65° C (-4° F to 149° F). Its UV-treated enclosure resists solar damage, keeping the WA-2200-O looking like new for years to come. Like other Pakedge WA Series APs, the WA-2200-O’s sleek form factor and internal antennas ensure it stays discreetly out of sight while still providing optimal coverage.
The WA-2200-O delivers Wave 2 MU-MIMO and beam-forming technology to extend fast roaming and exceptional performance to the outdoors. Combined, these features are ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications such as VoIP, 4K/HD streaming, and multi-player gaming.
This AP supports complete cloud configuration for single and multi-AP deployments through BakPak to reduce install time, streamline registration, and eliminate hardware costs. BakPak also makes it easy for integrators to configure, monitor, and manage their customers’ wireless networks from anywhere in the world through a desktop or mobile app.
“The ability to remotely monitor and manage a customer’s network through BakPak is essential to an integrator’s profitability,” said Kenny Kim, SnapAV’s vice president of connected products. “And with the WA-2200-O, integrators can take the powerful features of the WA Series Access Points outdoors to provide complete property coverage.”
The WA-2200-O comes with a mounting accessory kit and can be mounted on a wall or pole for fast and flexible installs.
The Pakedge WA-2200-O is shipping today and has a U.S. MSRP of $650.
