Xirrus XR-520 Wireless Access Point

The XR-520 Access Point represents a new class of low cost, zero touch AP within the Xirrus wireless portfolio. With a powerful integrated controller, application-level intelligence, automated provisioning, and cloud management (optional), the XR-520 delivers a flexible complement to Xirrus' line of modular XR Arrays.

The XR-520 is the ideal solution for providing robust wireless connectivity in areas of low-to-medium user density. Example use cases include hotel rooms, dormitories, hospital rooms, health clinics, office spaces, retail areas and similar.

Application Control
Firewall, apply QoS, and manage 900+ application types under 15 categories using Layer 7 Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and other contextual application detection techniques.

2.4GHz Optimization
Extended radio power control range enables reduced 2.4GHz cell size coverage to optimize channel reuse in dense scenarios and improve user capacity. Honeypot Mode helps increase available wireless device density through management of spurious association traffic.

5GHz Optimization
With its 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios (one software programmable to either), the XR-520 will help you easily make the transition to a 5GHz centric network, when you are ready.

Bonjour Director Support
Extend Apple Bonjour protocols across Layer 3 boundaries for simple setup and configuration of commonly used shared Apple services such as Airplay and Airprint.

Bring Your Own Device
Integration with Xirrus Access Manager (XAM) allows guests and employees alike to use non-corporate configured wireless devices while the XR-520 enforces appropriate access policies.

Value Driven
For all of its advanced features, the XR-520 is still very cost competitive.

Discreet Aesthetics
At just 7.7'' in diameter, the XR-520 is designed to be compact and aesthetically pleasing.
