NETGEAR’s latest Insight Managed Wi-Fi 6 AX3600 dual-band multi-gig access point (WAX620) is POE powered, mesh-capable and cloud manageable, while being interoperable with WiFi 5 devices.

Designed to provide the optimal WiFi experience for small and medium businesses, the WAX620 delivers up to 40% higher communication speeds to each connected device as compared to WiFi 5 (802.11ac). WAX620 interoperates with other NETGEAR Insight managed access points, including existing WiFi 5 (WAC 510, WAC 540) and WiFi 6 (WAX 610, WAX610Y) models. Additionally, WAX 620 allows access points to be connected to each other using Instant Mesh – a NETGEAR wireless backhaul technology. The new WAX 620 access point can be connected via gigabit or 2.5 Gbit (multi-gig) POE switch ports.

“WAX 620 is ideally suited for environments with open spaces where there is a need to provide WiFi connectivity for a large number of concurrent users. Schools, community colleges, mid-sized manufacturing facilities and warehouses, etc, will all find value in the capabilities of this new Insight Managed WiFi 6 dual-band multi-gig access point. This powerful access point is backward compatible with all prior generations of WiFi, while offering the maximum speed when connected to the WiFi 6 enabled client devices such as the latest smartphones, tablets and laptops,” says Tobie van Schalkwyk, product manager for NETGEAR at Duxbury Networking.

NETGEAR Insight enables management of WAX620 and other devices from the Insight App or a connected browser. With Insight, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) can remotely set up, monitor and maintain a customer’s network without requiring a technician to go onsite.

“Due to the ever-growing number of WiFi-connected devices, SMEs need more from their WiFi network. The performance, scalability and security features offered by the WAX620, along with the ability to manage it remotely using NETGEAR Insight, make it a compelling WiFi access point investment,” says Van Schalkwyk.

The WAX620 provides robust enterprise-grade WiFi network security with WPA3 128-bit to 192-bit encryption and the capability to set up VLANs and up to eight different SSIDs. WAX620 also provides eight streams (4x4) with each unit capable of delivering up to 3.6Gbps of aggregate data throughput with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands supporting WiFi 6. “With the dual-band WiFi 6 technology of the WAX620, businesses can now be confident that they are making an investment in a high-performance WiFi system,” says van Schalkwyk.
