Industry’s most powerful Wireless 802.11AC Wave 2 tri-band Access Point with NETGEAR Insight management
One of the most problematic situations for any network owner/manager is when the infrastructure runs out of resources and bandwidth and forklift upgrades are needed to remedy the situation.

Office locations with hundreds of employees with multiple devices (laptop, notepad and smart phones) can enjoy WAC540’s performance and coverage together with the ease of use that comes with Insight to overcome all demanding situations when designing and provisioning networks.

Advanced features such as port aggregation together with PoE power allows WAC540 to utilize a bundled gigabit Ethernet for backhaul when powered via Ethernet PoE ports while dedicating its 5G 4x4 radio for servicing even more clients.

Finally, the WAC540 is managed by NETGEAR Insight, for a more intuitive and innovative support, with no need for extra management hardware from anywhere through a smart device such as a phone, tablet or a laptop.
