Motorola AP6511 Access Point

The Motorola AP6511 brings powerful Wi-Fi to hotels, dormitories, hospitals and other multiple-dwelling units. Conventional access points (AP) can be challenging to deploy in the hallways of these units and require careful planning, drilling holes, pulling cable and installing ceiling brackets. In addition, high attenuation factors obstruct hallway APs including fire walls, mirrors, plumbing, and bathroom tile. The AP6511 can be installed in the guest room in minutes using existing CAT5/6 cabling in the walls. The universal mounting bracket can be installed on any wall surface or a structured wiring telecom box in minutes. The AP6511 includes self optimizing intelligent controller AP code, so any single AP6511 can serve as a master for up-to 25 AP6511 access points.
