Standard PoE

The A Series is PoE only and can be powered with standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE. Bundle with a PoE injector or S Series switch.


Multiple SSIDs

Multiple SSIDs allow you to broadcast up to four unique networks, some “public” and some “private.”


Your brand

Custom-branded splash pages automatically scale to fit any device, or use Facebook Wi-Fi to let users check-in to your page before using the web for free.


Outage alerts

Automated outage alerts by email if any access point goes down and doesn’t come back up within an hour.


Custom authentication

Authenticate users with WPA2 or WPA-Enterprise security; charge for access, use vouchers and connect to your hotel PMS system1.


Bandwidth management

Set upload and download caps on each user and block individual abusive devices to ensure there is enough bandwidth available for everyone.



Built-in firewall prevents users on the public network from seeing each other or your wired network by default.


Mobile apps

Build, manage and monitor your networks from anywhere with free iOS and Android applications.


  • The A Series is PoE only and does not include a power supply. The A42 can be powered with standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE. Bundle with a PoE injector or S Series switch.
  • A Series access points are backwards compatible with OM2P and most later OM Series devices (requires firmware upgrade) and MR600 and later MR Series devices, so you can run them on the same network. The A Series will not mesh with OM5P, but can run on the same network.
