XV2 Series Wireless Access Point

The Cambium Networks XV2 and E500 are both high-performance access points that offer a range of features and capabilities. While both are designed to provide reliable and secure wireless connectivity, there are some key differences between the two that may influence your decision.

Here are some of the key differences between the XV2 and E500 access points:

  1. Wi-Fi 6 vs Wi-Fi 5: The XV2 supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, which offers faster speeds, higher capacity, and improved performance in high-density environments compared to the Wi-Fi 5 standard supported by the E500.

  2. Dual-band vs Single-band: The XV2 operates on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, while the E500 operates only on the 2.4 GHz band. This means that the XV2 can provide better coverage and more flexibility when it comes to managing wireless traffic.

  3. NEMA 4X rating vs IP55 rating: The XV2 has a rugged enclosure with a NEMA 4X rating, which provides superior protection against environmental factors such as moisture, dust, and extreme temperatures. The E500 has an IP55 rating, which offers some protection against the elements but may not be as robust as the NEMA 4X rating.

  4. Advanced features: The XV2 includes several advanced features, such as multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) technology, which enables multiple users to connect to the access point simultaneously and receive faster speeds. The E500 does not include this feature.

  5. Cost: The XV2 is generally more expensive than the E500, due in part to its more advanced features and Wi-Fi 6 support.

Overall, the XV2 is a more advanced and feature-rich access point that is better suited for high-density environments or applications that require the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology. However, if you are looking for a more cost-effective option or don’t need the advanced features of the XV2, the E500 may be a suitable alternative, while supplies last.  Contact GNS Wireless directly to discuss your application further., 877-209-5152
