Cost-Effective Indoor Wireless Access Point The Ericsson Wi-Fi product portfolio supports the vision of providing seamless, high-quality user experience regardless of location or device. Within an operator’s heterogenous network strategy, the effective use of unlicensed Wi-Fi spectrum can provide a valuable complement to the carrier’s licensed spectrum.
The AP 6120’s concurrent dualradio design supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation simultaneously with 2×2 MIMO and 2 spatial streams per band. Each stream supports a peak rate of 150 Mbps, thereby providing 300 Mbps per radio and 600 Mbps per access point.
Both radios are compliant to IEEE 802.11n-2009 standards. The 2.4 GHz radio also provides full backwards compatibility for IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g clients. The 5 GHz radio provides compatibility for IEEE 802.11a clients.
Each radio supports up to 8 Subscriber Set Identifiers (SSIDs) for a total of 16 SSIDs for each AP. Similarly, MBSSID support for up to 8 virtual APs per radio is available.
The AP 6120 is a cost-effective indoor access point optimized for carrier-grade Wi-Fi coverage in the following deployment scenarios: • Indoor venues (e.g. cafés, malls, airports, retail stores and chains) • University / college campuses • Train stations and transportation hubs • Small and medium sized businesses (e.g. restaurants, realtors, lawyers) • Multi-tenant commercial and residential properties • Big box retail stores • Office building lobbies and public places • Hotels and resorts
Together with other product series within the Ericsson Wi-Fi portfolio, the AP 6120 provides a cost-effective means of deploying managed hot zone, 3G and 4G traffic offload and operatormanaged Wi-Fi services for enterprise customers, without sacrificing the performance and reliability that network operators demand.

Device-level fault, configuration and performance management
can be performed via the CLI and GUI interfaces, while
Wi-Fi Manager NMS adds network-level fault correlation and
performance management support. Firmware upgrade with
support for automatic rollback is supported via the management
interfaces. Local and remote management interfaces can be accessed
via open (Telnet / HTTP) or optionally using secure (SSH
/ HTTPS) protocols. The products also support SNMP v1/v2c/v3
and TR-069 management interfaces for use with any compliant
management system. Standard MIBs supported include MIB-II,
SNMPv2, 802.11, Ethernet-like, Interface Group. User with multiple privilege levels can be supported.
