The new NETGEAR Insight™ Managed Wi-Fi 6 AX6000 Tri-band (WAX630) is a mesh-capable and cloud manageable multi-gig access point designed to provide the ultimate Wi-Fi performance for small and medium businesses.

The WAX630 brings next-generation premium Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) performance to small and medium businesses (SMBs), delivering up to 40% higher speeds to each connected device compared to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). WAX630 interoperates with other NETGEAR Insight Managed access points, including the existing Wi-Fi 5 (WAC510, WAC540) and Wi-Fi 6 (WAX610, WAX610Y, WAX620) models. Additionally, WAX630 allows access points to be connected to each other using Instant Mesh – a NETGEAR wireless backhaul technology. The WAX 630 comes equipped with two Ethernet ports – one Gigabit Ethernet port and a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE++) 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port. 

“WAX630 is ideally suited for environments with open spaces where there is a need to provide Wi-Fi connectivity to a large number of concurrent users. Schools, community colleges, mid-sized manufacturing facilities, warehouses and office premises of mid-sized companies will each find value in the capabilities of this new Insight Managed Wi-Fi 6 Tri-band Multi-gig access point. This powerful access point interoperates with existing NETGEAR Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 access points, thus protecting a customer’s investment in NETGEAR technology while allowing them to maximise the performance of their Wi-Fi network,” says Tobie van Schalkwyk, product manager for NETGEAR at Duxbury Networking.

WAX630 also supports 12-streams (4x4 on each band) with each unit capable of delivering up to 6.0 Gbps of aggregate data throughput with all three bands supporting Wi-Fi 6. Specifically designed for high-density deployments, the industry unique tri-band solution enables either one dedicated band for wireless backhaul with two front-haul bands for client devices, or a 2.5GbE wired backhaul with three front-haul bands for client device connection – thus making WAX630 amongst the most versatile and high-performance access points in the industry.

“NETGEAR Insight enables management of WAX630 and other devices from the Insight App or a connected browser. With Insight, resellers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can remotely set up, monitor and maintain a customer’s network without requiring a technician to go on-site,” says Van Schalkwyk.

“Whether it be better overall throughput or faster speeds for individually connected devices, SMBs are always demanding more from their Wi-Fi network. The WAX630 delivers industry leading network performance based on its unique Wi-Fi 6 12-stream tri-band architecture. Together with WAX610 and WAX620, a common Insight management platform, the new WAX630 offers SMB customers an unprecedented array of price-performance options, each with the same rich feature set, security and quality,” says Van Schalkwyk.

“The WAX630 provides robust enterprise-grade Wi-Fi network security with WPA3 128-bit to 192-bit encryption and the capability to set up VLANs and up to 16 different SSIDs. With the tri-band Wi-Fi 6 technology of the WAX630, businesses can now be confident that they are making an investment in the ultimate Wi-Fi solution,” says Van Schalkwyk.
