Extreme Networks is adding a new family of purpose-built 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6E) Access Points (APs) for Stadiums to its Smart portfolio, that support more users and IoT devices with greater performance and efficiency. The 6 GHz radio will be disabled until the Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) regulations are ratified.* 6 GHz AFC ratification varies by region. Initial release of the product will be outdoor deployment only.

Harsh Outdoor & Stadium Optimized

As the Official Wi-Fi Solutions Provider of the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB), Extreme understands firsthand the unique challenges of stadiums and harsh outdoor high-density Wi-Fi deployments. The IP67-rated AP5050 Series builds on that experience, by delivering a custom-designed family of access points that cater specifically to these types of challenging environments.

High Performance in High Density Environments

Improve user experience and device performance with 4x4:4 6 GHz, 4x4:4 5 GHz, and 4x4:4 2.4 GHz with OFDMA technology. With the latest Wi-Fi 6E performance and multiple software programmable radio modes, AP5050 series can serve the most dense environments.

Future-Proof with Wi-Fi 6E

With built-in 6 GHz radios, Extreme AP5050 series increases device capacity and improves spectral efficiency, allowing stadiums and high-density environments to extract more out of the Wi-Fi spectrum and future-proof their network and investment. The AP5050 series comes with multipurpose GPS capabilities, allowing it to detect regional location for approved Wi-Fi 6E outdoor use.*

Modular Design for Flexible Deployment

Extreme’s experience has taught us there is no one-size-fits-all solution for stadiums and complex outdoor environments. From the field to bowl seating, to gate entrances, to concierge areas, to parking lots, temporary medical sites, or outdoor campus locations each area has its own requirements. The AP5050 series delivers flexible deployment options—from under seat mounted, to pole-mounted, to APs with software selectable antennas—they ensure an exceptional mobile experience throughout the entire stadium or deployment environment.

The AP5050U and AP5050D are an Enterprise Universal and World SKU Wi-Fi 6E Wireless access point. This innovation simplifies the sales ordering process and reinforces Extreme’s commitment to the journey to the “Infinite Enterprise”. The World SKU allows customers, partners, and distributors to order one model for any region, replacing the age-old problem of country specific models. ExtremeCloud™ IQ geo-locates the access point and accurately provides it the corresponding set of channel and power specifications that the product can operate under in that country.

The AP5050U and AP5050D Wi-Fi 6E access points, with three 4x4:4 radios, provide high-efficiency, high-performance 802.11ax aggregate data rates up to 10 Gbps in the 6 GHz, 5 GHz, and 2.4 GHz band. Designed for high density environments, such as event venues, schools, transportation facilities, healthcare facilities, and stadiums, the AP5050U and AP5050D are powerful and intelligent enough to provide the highest level of client services without compromising security. Despite powerful capabilities, the AP5050U and AP5050D can operate with fully functional Wi-Fi capabilities using 802.3at PoE, simplifying power capacity planning.

With more users, more devices, more applications, and more threats straining the infrastructure, the AP5050U and AP5050D are engineered to meet those challenges. The AP5050U and AP5050D combine powerful 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E technology, advanced security, and ML/AI management capabilities together as an enterprise-class solution that allows you to deploy high speed, highly secure Wi-Fi into high-density environments.

Unlike other access points that scan only part-time, the AP5050U and AP5050D feature a tri-frequency sensor mode that monitors for rogue devices full time, eliminating the risk of vulnerability and attacks. This tri-radio AP is capable of multiple operating modes, optimizing for maximum performance without trading off security.

Wi-Fi 6E Enhanced Capacity

By utilizing the additional 6 GHz spectrum offered by Wi-Fi 6E, the AP5050U and AP5050D operate up to three times as much spectrum as previous generations of Wi-Fi to deliver enhanced wireless experiences, faster speeds, and less interference.

Band Number of 20 MHz Channels Maximum Channel Size Maximum throughput
6 GHz 59 160 MHz 4.8 Gbps
5 GHz 25 80 MHz 4.8 Gbps
2.4 GHz 3 20 MHz 1.148 Gbps
Total 87   10.7 Gbps

Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) Technology

Wi-Fi 6 ushered a new generation of Wi-Fi. While prior generations emphasized on higher speeds, 802.11ax technology instead focused on improving Wi-Fi efficiency as well as speed, taking Wi-Fi networks to an entirely new level. Now, with addition of the 6 GHz band for unlicensed operation, Wi-Fi 6E has access to up to 1,200 MHz of spectrum*, which is three times that of existing 'usable' spectrum which enables improved quality of service (QoS) in dense environments, new applications and use cases, and an improved user experience. To learn more about 802.11ax and Wi-Fi 6E.


The AP5050D deliver the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the latest Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications. Leverage Extreme Fabric Attach to securely automate provisioning and deployment by connecting to a Fabric Connect-enabled switch. AP5050U and AP5050D support a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, tri-frequency security, and Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK), location analytics sensor and much more.

Management Analytics

In conjunction with Extreme centralized management software, cloud or on-premises, the AP5050U and AP5050D provide a rich set of data displayed via widgets, representing unlimited historical data or a combination of historical and current data. This provides context-specific granularity with perspective views for locations, network, APs, individual client devices, as well as policy roles. In each context, administrators can make a widget library

Universal Hardware

The AP5050U and AP5050D are universal hardware platforms that come with a dual-persona capability allowing user choice of the Wi-Fi operating system (OS). Either the IQ Engine operating system or the WiNG Operating System persona can be enabled as required. The desired persona can be selected at start-up or changed at a later stage. Once selected, the AP5050U and AP5050D assumes the features or capabilities of the selected OS. When first booted, the AP5050U and AP5050D automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The preprovisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the AP5050U and AP5050D system, eliminating the need for manual selection.

Tri-Radio Programmable AP

Extreme launched the industry's first software defined Wi-Fi 6E access point supporting two software programmable modes to optimally manage radios to provide the highest level of client performance. The AP5050U and AP5050D are tri-radio access points that can transmit with three data radios or with two data radios and a dedicated tri-frequency sensor. The AP5050U and AP5050D intelligently monitor the software-configurable radios, enabling network managers to configure network RF technology based on the user environment and configure the access points in different modes as required.

Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy

To support both IoT and Guest Engagement services integrates Bluetooth® to connect with IoT devices wireless to engage loyalty customers with Apple iBeacon. Enterprises can use API driven applications to send advertisements directly to shoppers, guests, and conference attendees. This makes it ideal for businesses to advertise their app download pages, captive portals, or sitespecific information.
