SXT SA5 ac

The new AC standard is here, with up to 866Mbit over the air datarate, 256-QAM modulation, and 80MHz channels. 802.11a/n/ac opens up new possibilities and speeds never possible before.

The SXT ac is a new member in our 802.11ac product lineup, currently two models are available — with regular 28 degree antenna, and the SA model with a 90 wide beam - width sector antenna. Also support 802.11a/n standard, Nstreme and Nv2 protocols and are compatible with all legacy RouterBOARD devices.
 Both devices come with Gigabit Ethernet.

New products are backwards compatible - for example, you can replace your 5GHz 802.11a/n legacy Access Point with new 802.11ac product and your existing customers will still be able to connect to it.

  1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
  2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
  3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
  4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
