Thanks to its solid hardware capabilities, in addition to regular daily activities, this wireless access point will be able to fulfill a number of heavier network workloads, including complex firewall measures and hightened security, given that, similar to the hAP ac2, the hAP ax2 also supports IPsec hardware encryption.


In terms of wireless connectivity, this device has a dual-band, dual-chain radio that reaches 4.5 dBi in 2.4 GHz mode and 4 dBi in 5 GHz.


And if you're wondering about the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax wireless), this hardware has apparently shown a 38% and 90% increase in Wi-Fi speed in 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz spectra, respectively.
