The Pepwave AP One Rugged is a robust dual band 2x2 MIMO access point that comes equipped with a full set of enterprise features, such as industrial-grade components, wide-coverage, user access control, and easy deployment. The simultaneous dual-band reduces Wi-Fi congestion and interference, giving you two separate networks that work together so that all your devices can connect without problems. Use the Pepwave AP One Rugged to add Wi-Fi to a router that does not have it, or add additional Wi-Fi range, reliability, and features to any router, when the included Wi-Fi is not sufficient.

Although the Pepwave AP One access point can be used with any router, it’s specially designed to work instantly with your Peplink Balance router, and the full-feature set is only available with Peplink/Pepwave products.

The Pepwave AP One is the best way to add reliable WLAN to your business network. This robust access point provides enterprise-grade performance and has the flexibility to deploy anywhere. It’s easy to set up and manage, and delivers fast, secure and long-range Wi-Fi.

I've been using PepLink/PepWave at home for years. Fantastic stability and capabilities. Rock solid even with dozens of clients.

This product is awesome. We use wireless VOIP phones which had lots of packet loss. Now with this WAP we are virtually 0% packet loss. I highly recommend this unit for high wireless data interference offices, apartments ect...

The device was simple to set up and use. It has some nice features like individualized login pages for each user. There's
Plenty of diagnostic information as well. Also the unit has much output.

So far the AP One has a much better range compared to the CTR500. With the powerboost enabled, I am able to stream audio easily 150+ feet outside in the yard. The included antenna is true to its gain rating. I did attach a larger 9dBi omni antenna that does add a bit more punch. The hardware is very well built and solid. Very happy with the product so far and would definitely recommend it to anyone! Will buy Pepwave products for sure in the future.
