Datasheet Evaluate & Buy


The AP245X enterprise access point combines high-performance 802.11ac Wave 2 with the simplicity of Aerohive’s distributed, cooperative architecture. This power-optimized access point uniquely incorporates a 2.4 GHZ 802.11b/g/n radio, next generation of 802.11ac 5 GHz radio and integrated BLE ( BlueTooth Low Energy) to provide uncompromised wireless performance on the standard 802.3af PoE power.

AP245X is certified to use with 3 different antennas: standard omni directional, 60° sector, and 120° sector antennas. In combination with the extended operating temperature range, the AP245X is the best fit for the most challenging indoor environments.
