Cambium Networks XE3-4 access point with software-defined radio

The Cambium Networks XE3-4 access point with software-defined radio is designed for Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E networks.

The software-defined radio supports 5 GHz or 6 GHz band operation with 4×4 streams – in the 6 GHz band, it supports 802.11ax, while in 5 GHz band, it supports 802.11a / n / ac / ax.

It also has fixed band 5 GHz radio supporting 802.11a / n / ac / ax with 2×2 streams; fixed band 2.4 GHz radio supporting 802.11b / g / n / ax with 2×2 streams; 1 x 2.5 GbE and 1 x GbE uplinks; integrated BLE radio; and 802.3bt or 802.3at PoE Powered Device.

The Cambium Networks XE3-4 can be managed by Cambium’s XMS-Cloud, cnMaestro X or cnMaestro Essentials (cloud or on-premises) and SWIFT applications. This management flexibility allows the XE3-4 to be tailored to meet end-user or managed service provider requirements with application policy controls, location services, BYOD security segmentation or part of a wireless fabric architecture spanning outdoor broadband, Ethernet switching and enterprise Wi-Fi .

XE3-4 is supported by any of the cnMatrix Ethernet switches. To match the high aggregate throughput of the Wi-Fi 6 radio + Wi-Fi 6E radio, the EX2016M (SKU: MXEX2016MxPA00) with multi-gigabit Ethernet interfaces is recommended.

A software-defined radio on the XE3-4 can be configured for operation in either the 6 GHz band or the 5 GHz band. The SDR function can be enabled when managed by XMS-Cloud or cnMaestro. With SWIFT the SDR radio is locked to the 6 GHz band.
