Grandstream's powerful Wi-Fi Access Points offer high-performance networking, exceptional Wi-Fi coverage range, high speed and simple provisioning/management thanks to a built-in controller, outstanding network throughput, and support for a large number of customers per Access Point. Grandstream’s Access Points can be used along side 3rd party routers, Grandstream routers, as well as current Wi-Fi networks, making them the perfect solution for both new and existing Wi-Fi deployments. In this blog post, we will highlight key features in both the indoor and outdoor access point lines and cloud and on-premise network management.
Grandstream’s Wi-Fi access points allow you to create a wireless network in any organization. With both indoor Access Points and outdoor, long-range Access Points, deployments can be customizable to fit your needs. Grandstream’s selection of indoor access points cover a range of up to 175 meters and can handle up to 450 client devices. Grandstream’s long-range (LR) access points can accommodate up to 450 client devices within a 300-meter range and are weatherproof, making these Access Points ideal for expanding your Wi-Fi network beyond four walls.
Smaller user density deployments such as a small office, coffee shop, hotel room, or restaurant would require devices with moderate capacity and internet speeds such as the GWN7602 or for outdoor deployments, the GWN7605LR. Both these access points have a total throughput of 1.27Gbps and with 2x2:2 MIMO technology and can support up to 100 active client devices. For deployments in environments with high user density such as a school or large office building, models like the GWN7630 or GWN7660 would be ideal for strong connectivity.
